Astor Perfect Stay Fabulous lipsticks and giveaway

I have said it several times before: Red lipsticks are my weakness, and I really don’t need any more of them.

But lucky for me, no one seems to pay any attention to these claims, least of all myself, so I was very excited when a package with the new Astor lipstick range called „Perfect Stay Fabulous“ arrived at my doorstep.

As you can see in the video, it is a lovely selection of reds with different undertones, and I had a hard time deciding which ones would find a permanent home in my makeup bag.

Claims and reality

Astor claims that these are intense in color, hydrating, comfortable to wear throughout the day and long-lasting.

I don´t agree with all of that.

All lipsticks last 3-4 hours on me without eating or drinking hot beverages, and none survived a full meal, so I personally wouldn’t call them long-lasting.

The smell is artificially fruity, and I personally am not a big fan (my sister loves it), but it doesn’t linger once applied and doesn’t leave a weird taste.

But they are very hydrating and comfortable to wear on the lips and stay that way. No drying down, but no slipping around my face either. Keep in mind that like most hydrating products they do transfer if you don’t blot them, so they probably aren’t the perfect pick if you plan on do a lot of kissing.

At this time of year, with my lips chapped and dry from heating and cold, these are the perfect every day lipsticks for me, as they offer the opaque color I love paired with the hydration of a lip balm I need.

Three shades have found their way into my makeup bag already.

Any guesses which one?

  • Good morning! I’ve just seen your video while having a cup of coffee and my favourite colour is Fabulous Style. Have a great Sunday! Marta

    • It was so hard for me to pick my favorites, they are all lovely.

  • Vanessa Berlín

    Fantastic! Those are amazing! Red is an incredible powerful color!

    Great video!! I love the shade! 🙂

  • wow! awesome give away ! I entered:)

  • Jemma

    I love the look of Forever pink

  • Fabulous style and and favourite berry are beautiful red lipsticks, and also fuchsia suits you too. I only have a few Astor products (matte lipstick is my favourite), I didn’t know about the brand until last year. When a lipstick is hydrating, then it doesn’t really last for long so it shouldn’t be a problem. Great giveaway!

    Ela BellaWorld

    • I almost kept the fuchsia one, but I have one that is quite similar already and decided to wear that one instead and gave fuchsia to my sister.

  • What a lovely giveaway Ann.
    I’m lovin the shades of the lipstick.
    Looks rich on lips when applied on.

  • Now that is A LOT of lippies you received, nice! I’m not going to join the giveaway, but good luck to everyone who is. My favorite color on you is definitely the pure red shade, so pretty!

  • Fuschia is my favourite, although I really like the majority! xx


  • Andrea

    I’d love to try all of them!

  • Fuschia (shocking, I know) is my favorite but I have to say all the shades look so good on you! That’s a lot of lip swatching too!


    • Oh yes. The lipsticks themselves were very hydrating, but taking them off in between definitely took a toll on my lips. You learn the hard way, I guess!

  • I can’t decide between Feline and Fabulous Style, I honestly love both but because I usually fall head over heels in love with red lips, I guess Fabulous Style wins by a touch.

    • I gave Feeling Feline to my sister, it didn’t sit too well on my skin tone, but I kept Fabulous Style for myself. So pretty!

  • lizzy orr

    These look so nice:)

  • Caliope Couture

    These lipsticks look great! Fabulous Style seems like a really pretty colour. I am not a fan of artificial smells either though.

    Christina ♥

    • Yes, the smell is a little off-putting, but it doesn’t linger.

  • Lovely giveaway, beautiful lipstick

    kisses Adela Acanski

  • Sarah Laird

    Stunning shades – its such a shame you say they aren’t exactly long lasting though! x

  • Coline T.

    Really love Fabulous Style! 🙂
    thanks for this generous giveaway ♥

  • You had me at hydrating and comfortable. I think the fake fruity scent would irk me too but at least it doesn’t linger. I really like the look of For Fun.

    • It is the one thing I really don’t like that much, otherwise they´d be great!

  • I like that they don’t dry.. 🙂 And I’m always up for trying new colors, yay! So count me in! I loved favorite berry on you, is that the one you got?

    • No. I had to many similar ones in my collection already, so I gave it to my sister. But it is a lovely shade I really enjoy wearing.

  • Oooh fab! Lucky you!
    Becca | theBeautyInbox

  • Such pretty colors! I love when people do lip swatches! These seem really interesting!


    • They are. Have you tried Astor before?

      • No, to be honest though I’ve never really heard of the brand. XO

  • Love the look of Fuchsia, Fancy and Fireworks, but the shades are all beautiful! 🙂 xx
    Gyudy @ Gyudy’s Notes Of Beauty

  • I think Fuchsia and Fabulous style are my favourite, although there are many beautiful shades 🙂 I don’t think we have Astor in UK but remember using their products when I still lived in Poland 🙂 x

    • You don’t get Astor in the UK? I didn’t know that, what a shame!

  • Everything looks nice on you! I wish you had some text on your video. I wasn’t able to catch the names of the shades. And I love the frame of your glasses! Can I enter the giveaway? Hihi

    • There is text in the video, Laarni, the names are in the upper left corner in every swatch. Did you watch the video on YT? Maybe your phone or computer blocked out the text?
      If it doesn’t work, the shades are swatched in the order that I listed them in the blog post here, but you can of course enter without picking one.

  • Aww that link in the rafflecopter to your channel doesn’t work 🙁 Found your channel through your video and subscribed there anyway! 🙂 That ‚for fun‘ is such a nice shade on you – the perfect in-between shade between a red lipstick and a plum one!

    So great that you got so many lipsticks to try, and that they are nice and moisturising – I also feel I need more moisture in everything (lip, face, hand, body products!) over winter.

    • Yes, I noticed that too, but I cant change it anymore. I wonder what went wrong?
      And I need all the hydration I can get throughout winter, so I really don’t buy into the whole matte lipstick trend this season..

  • I think Forever Pink, Fruity, and Floral look great on you! You did a very nice video review also. Thank you for sharing an honest review.

  • Okay you look amazing with your hair up and glasses! I really like Fruity. 🙂

    • It was a necessity, I had an eye infection, so I needed some bold frame to distract from the fact that I was barely wearing anything on my eye…
      Fruity is one of the three I kept.

  • All colours are great but i mostly like the fuchsia! ❤

    • Thank you. I didn’t keep it because I already owned a similar one.
      You realize you commented before?

  • Beauty Obsessed

    Great honest review! You look great with the Fireworks! x Ania

    • I didn’t keep that one in the end, but mostly because I have so many similar colors already.

  • thefashionsalt

    Fabulous Style and Fruity look amazing on you! I’d love the forever pink for myself. I also love your glasses. I don’t think I’ve seen them on you before, they are beautiful.

    • I did a blogpost on them about a year ago, but to be honest I rarely wear them throughout the day. And I noticed after filming three videos while wearing them that the light was reflected quite annoyingly…
      Fruity is among the three that I chose to keep for myself, and Forever pink went straight to my sisters makeup bag, she loves that kind of color.

  • They look amazing. I already see the shades I would put into my makeup bag! Good luck to all who enter 🙂

    • Please share, which ones would you keep?

      • I really like how 202, 300, 403 and 604 look.

        • 604 is one of the three I kept. You obviously have great taste! Fingers crossed for you then.

  • These sound like nice go-to lipsticks for the cold season. I appreciate your honest review!

  • Liliana Ayala

    Love that you are sharing your honest thoughts! I’m glad they work for everyday wear and that they are moisturizing, I love that in lip products!
    xo, Lily

    • Me too. I don’t really get on board with matte lips in winter, they are way too drying.

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I agree, red lipsticks are something special and I have a weakness for them too. Lovely giveaway. I’m not a big fan of fruity scents, but I usually will try most things once.

    • The scent doesn’t linger, so I accepted it, but I wished they didn’t smell like that in the first place.

  • It’s interesting how there are soooo many different shades of red, especially when undertones get to the mix – that it is easy to stock up on so many!! I can def see why they are a weakness bc each shade gives such a different vibe! As always, I really appreciate your honest reviews. Makeup is not my forte so it is great to have a trusted source… aka you! Have a great week, Anne! PS – that clear bag is perfect for carry-on travel 😉 xx

    • I keep telling Mr. Loca that I really need all these different reds, but somehow he doesn’t understand. When we started dating he asked me why I needed another lipstick as I already owned one that wasn´t even close to being finished. Poor man didn’t quite know what he was getting into, I guess.

  • I loved reading this post, probably because I am majorly obsessed with Lipsticks at the moment haha, and you can’t really have enough reds ♥

    • Well, I guess you can, but I haven’t reached this point quite yet.

    Die Frage ist gar nicht so einfach, liebe Anne: ich denke auf jeden Fall aber Fiction Red 🙂 Bei dem Giveaway mache ich sehr gerne mit, und würde mich freuen, wenn ich einen pinken oder roten Lippenstift gewinne. Euch eine schöne Woche, hoffentlich geht es Euch weiterhin so gut.

    • Du kennst mich zu gut. Ja, Fiction Red ist bei mir geblieben.
      Ich drücke Dir die Daumen!

  • The shades are nice! For me it is more important the hydrating factor than the staying power of lipsticks, specially for drugstore brand, I don’t mind reapplying several times. The giveaway is tempting, but I will skip it this time, since I too have way many more lipsticks than I could use!

    • I don’t mind reapplying as well, I really barely ever finish a lipstick anyway.

  • silviabia

    All the colours are really beautiful but I really loved Floral!

  • The colors are pretty great and I like how there is a subtle shine 🙂 Glad that they are hydrating and comfortable 🙂

  • Rasa Virviciute

    Love the look of these!

    Love the look of these!

  • oh mein gott, wie cool 🙂 so viele wunderschöne farben 🙂 ich weiss genau was du meinst: eigentlich braucht man keine rottöne mehr – ABER irgendwie bekommt man doch immer neue, ob geschenkt oder zufällig im einkaufswagen gelandet 😉 😀 Da versuch ich mein glück doch mal hier 🙂

  • What an exciting giveaway. I love lipsticks! haha

  • I’ve never heard of this brand before but the colours/shades look really like something I’d like to try on myself. I mean, like you, I don’t really think I need to buy anymore lipsticks, but then again like you, I never listen to myself when it comes to these types of things. One of the keys for me to buy lipsticks are how hydrating they are, because I don’t have the softest lips at times, and they’re so ‚big‘ that one can see it from afar when I’m wearing a lipstick that doesn’t compliment them.

    Lovely post as per usual <3

    • The fingers crossed you are lucky with the giveaway. Out of the 13 shades one or more will surely work in your favor.

      • I surely hope so! I just checked and I don’t think the link to the youtube is working correctly (atleast for me) but because it’s linked on your sidebar, we can always click from there!

        • It doesn’t, I noticed that as well, but I can´t change it at the moment, somehow I don’t get it to work.

    I liked Fiction Red the best!!

    I like 602 fashion chic.

  • Oh these look gorgeous! I think I love Feeling Feline the most, even though some of the dark shades look amazing 🙂 Thank you for doing the giveaway 😉 xx

  • I love the packaging on these and the way the actual lipstick is shaped – almost reminds me of YSL ones…Loving the Forever Pink, Fireworks and Fruity one!! (P.s you rock the geek chic look!)

    Pop over to my blog!


    • Haha, thank you. I had an eye infection and needed to distract from that fact, but people really seemed to like the look.

  • Eshee Desu

    I absolutely love Fuchsia!

  • I haven’t visited your blog in forever! Anyway, the lipsticks look really pretty, especially Fruity is my favorite. All the reds look really good on you too! I would have liked more unique shades as I feel like the colors are somewhat close to each other, but I’d love to try them! Thank you for hosting this giveaway 🙂


    • Yes, it definitely is a red centered collection, but I don’t mind that too much, I adore my reds.

  • lea_s

    I like the colour Fashion Chic! And I really enjoy your videos and you calm voice 🙂
