Lipstick that lasts?

I just saw another post similar to this.
Does anyone know of a lipstick that lasts? And that it doesn't dry your lips out?

    all kinds of makeup companies have long-wear lipsticks - a base colour with a sealing topcoat that makes them stay on, and on and on.

    we've had several threads about them here, let me see if i can bump one up for you.

    I have used Covergirl Outlast almost exclusively for at least 7-8 years. I put it on early in the morning, and unless I eat something pretty greasy, I have to remove it with my Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover 16 or more hours later. Some colors wear better than others. Application is key - apply a quick, even coat, quickly cleaning up any mistakes. If you apply too thick or try to reapply over an existing coat, you get flaking and cracking, but otherwise not at all.

    Some say they find Outlast drying, but I don't at all and I am not constantly applying the topcoat, either. In the winter my lips used to get dry and cracked with regular lipstick but I have no problem whatsoever now. I use this all day and some Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream on my lips at night - it heals chapped lips better than almost anything. I used to sell MK, can you tell, LOL? These are the only two MK products I still use with any regularity, though.
