While looking for the best stay lipstick I could find, I tried many. Some made it into my top 10 choices and some didn't. While looking for a lipstick that had staying power I also needed a lipstick that was affordable. I was looking for the same things in a lipstick that other women are looking for such as moisture and shade choices. 

Revlon Renewist LipColor offers a great moisturizing lipstick that stays put for hours. I didn't have to worry about applying it repeatedly throughout my day. It also offered a variety of colors to choose from. The affordability was very reasonable and in what I consider to be a great price range. 

Another of the best stay lipstick was the Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color. This lipstick went on very smoothly and offers a fuller look to the lips. It also is very light and a joy to wear. You can count on your first applications lasting for about 8 hours. 

Nutrogena MoistureShine Soothing LipSheers are pretty great too, it offered 8 hours of continuous wear with no problem. I liked that it is slim and that I can carry anywhere, even in my pocket if I want too. The sunscreen is an added bonus that will allow you to spend time in the sun without suffering any of the damages that the sun can cause. 

Also making the list is the Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick which last from 6 to 8 hours without having to have a touch up. It goes on smooth and is very creamy in feel. I didn't have to deal with any drying or cracking nor was there any clumping or chapped look.

Clinique Almost Lipstick was also a great staying lipstick that looked as though it had a touch of lip gloss in it. I liked that it not only stayed on for a long time but that it made my lips feel moist. I found that it stayed on almost all day, I didn't have to reapply at all. This is a great choice when you are running all day long. 

Sonia Kashuk Luxury Lip Color also deserves to be recognized for it's longevity. It is an affordable choice that will provide you with the moisture that you want and a little shine too. I never experienced drying or cracking when I tested this lipstick. 

NARS Lipstick is also a good choice for a staying lipstick, when I tried it I found that it lasted well over 8 hours with no touch ups or second application. It kept my lips soft and smooth and met the criteria of what I was looking for in a lipstick. 

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor is also a great choice. It also wonderful staying power and goes on smoothly and and stays on even after a meal or a drink. I found many colors available that I liked and found it easy to apply. 

The NYX Round Lips is one of the best stay lipstick choices at the most reasonable price. I liked the glossy shine that this lipstick had and I liked that it lasted for a long amount of time. About 6 hours into it, I thought the lipstick still looked great. There is a large pallet of colors that will allow you to choose exactly what you like for your style. 

Last on my list but not last in quality is the MAC Mattene Lipstick, this lipstick deserves to be on the best stay lipstick list. I like this lipstick it is light and easy to apply. It left my lips with a smooth and silky look for the day. I was very pleased with its performance. 

Having lipstick that will last is a plus, when you can get it so that it provides moisture with no caking or cracking that's an added bonus that every woman can appreciate.
