What could be better than a bold slick of lipstick? A long-lasting bold slick of lipstick, of course. Here at Grazia HQ, we're all about a strong lip statement. And right now, everywhere we look, bold colours are showing no signs of fading. Spotted on our clothes, hair accessories and even shoes - bright bursts of orange, pinks, purples and blues are injecting some much-needed joy into our lives.

Any Hollywood screen siren worth their salt can tell you a bold lip demands to be noticed, and there's nothing wrong with being the centre of attention from time to time, right? The only downside is that the application can be fiddly and bright colours are not as forgiving as pale hues when it comes to precision. But fear not, because we've trialled a whole bunch of lipsticks that claim to be long-lasting, and we can now present to you the cream of the crop.

Whether you favour a gloss or a good ol' fashioned stick, there's something for everyone in our selection of utterly immovable lip colours. Pucker up...
