Maybelline New York’s Best Long-Lasting Lipsticks

For transfer-proof color that won’t rub off
Lipstick is so much more than just makeup. It's empowering! It's mood-boosting! And it has the power to make someone feel put together with just one swipe. So, it only makes sense that once we apply it, we don’t want it to go anywhere. Enter: Maybelline New York’s line of long-wear lipsticks.

Our Super Stay collection is a fan favorite for this very reason. Whether you choose Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick, Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick, Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick, or Super Stay 24 2-Step Liquid Lipstick, you'll get highly pigmented color in vibrant reds, bold burgundies, warm browns, natural nudes and more, that won't smudge, budge, fade, or transfer. And each is lightweight, non-drying and goes the distance comfortably—no matter what the day (or night) brings.

If you're not a matte wearer, don't worry. These textures look soft and natural, not severe or flat, plus we have a high shine version, too! And with four long-lasting lipsticks to choose from, there's a perfect format and finish for everyone.

What is longwear lipstick?

As the name implies, it’s lipstick that is long-lasting and doesn’t require constant reapplications or touch-ups. And we’re not just talking about a few hours. Maybelline New York defines longwear as lasting eight or more hours, with some formulas promising up to 24 hours of flawless lip color. Longwear lipstick differs from other sticks, stains and glosses because they offer more staying power. We all have that favorite bullet that imparts just enough color and shine, but after only an hour– give or take a drink or two– it appears as if we never applied any lipstick in the first place. Our long-lasting formulas are highly pigmented and last through multiple meals, conversations, kisses and more.

What is the best way to remove long lasting lipstick?

With longwear lipstick that really works, you get to enjoy it for hours and hours, but when the time comes to take it off, it helps to use an oil makeup remover. Saturate a cotton round with and then dab it on your lips. The oil will help to break down the lipstick so that you’re able to wipe it clean, plus it’s gentler on lips than some alternatives. There’s also Superstay Eraser Lip Color Remover, which was formulated specifically to remove Superstay lipsticks. After your lips are lipstick-free, it’s important to moisturize with a nourishing balm to keep them healthy and hydrated. Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Medicated Lip Balm smooths and seals in moisture for up to twelve hours.
