Here are our pick of the best long-lasting lip colours, so you won’t need to worry about re-applying throughout the day, making it the perfect mum-friendly, low maintenance make-up.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Colour Lipstick, £19,

For a creamy textured lipstick, this Bobbi Brown formula offers amazing staying power. It glides on, feels very hydrating, but with a matte finish and the selection of subtle hues offers a natural finish for up to eight hours – perfect for mums who have no time to reapply throughout the day.

Barry M Touch Of Magic Lip Paint, £4.99,

This may only come in one (very green!) shade, but that’s all you need with this clever little lipstick. The waterproof lip stain reacts to the alkali levels in your lips, for a customised shade of wearable pink or red individual to you. Apply lightly during the day, or add a few extra layers for a deeper shade that’s guaranteed to last all night.

L’Oreal Paris GlamShine Stain Splash, £7.99,

It’s hard to get serious staying power with all the shine of a gloss, but GlamShine Stain Splash is definitely up for the job. Without drying out your lips (in-fact it’s a 30% water-based formula), it lasts for hours, and the heart shape wand means you can apply in one sweep.

Lord & Berry 20100 Lipstick Pencil, £8,

Even rushed or unsteady hands can draw on the perfect lip with these pencil lipsticks. The silky texture gives a beautifully bold colour with a soft, hydrating finish and will last through hectic mornings into lunch no problem. Just keep away from little hands that may mistake them for their own crayons during scribble sessions.

CK One Pure Color Lipstick, £13,

For intense colour and shine that doesn’t smudge or bleed, CK One Pure Color works wonders. Build up a more intense colour by applying in short, quick strokes for a longer lasting, fuller finish. Full of fun and flirty shades, the Pure Color range is great for getting that pout-perfect look all night long.

MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme, £17.50,

If you’re after a long lasting lipstick, but without feeling heavy or drying, this Pro Longwear Lipcreme combines a really soft, lightweight texture with up to twelve hours wear after just one application. As an added bonus, it has a pretty delicious scent too.

Lancome L’Absolu Velours, £20,

If you’re not a fan of the solid texture of a lipstick, this intense colour gloss (six times more pigments that a traditional lipgloss, to be precise) sweeps easily over lips for a high impact finish lasting up to eight hours. Impressive stuff for a gloss formula and we love that it’s non-sticky, too.

Max Factor Lasting Lip Tint, £6.99,

Lip tints are a great idea for mums after a long-lasting, natural look. This lightweight, felt-tip pen style lip colour is easy to apply, won’t bleed or smudge and doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky. As an extra bonus, it won’t be easily ruined in the wrong (i.e. toddler) hands.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick, £24,

One of the latest lipstick formulas from Estee Lauder, this gives high intensity lip colour in a single stroke. Great if you’re after shine, moisture and great colour, but won’t fade after your morning cup of coffee. Perfect for lips on the thinner side, as the angled bullet top makes it easier to create shape, and the light-reflecting pigments add volume.
Expand Image

Benefit Benetint, £24.50,

A cult classic when it comes to lip stains, this amazing little number gives a rosy red colour to your lips in the most subtle of ways, so is great if you’re after an uber natural finish. It doubles up as a cheek stain too, so it a great dual purchase. Swipe brush lightly across cheeks and lips and blend in quickly with your fingers.
