My solution was to layer two different lipsticks. I started by applying CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain in Wild Berry Wink 440. I love this lip stain; it's what I wore for my wedding! It is a nice, vibrant red and, once it dries, it does not move until you take it off with a make-up wipe. Why didn't I just put this on and call it a day? Well, I've found that when my lips aren't super healthy (chapped, dry, etc) it can go on a little patchy. But I had a feeling it would make a great base and help whatever I put on top of it go the distance. I put on two coats of this, letting it dry thoroughly after each coat.

The result was a long lasting, vibrant red! Just for fun, I took a picture after coming home and eating a late-night snack. I paid zero attention to not smudging my lipstick, but it hardly moved at all. Clearly the combo of the lip stain and lip liner is a winner!
