To combat makeup fade-away, we rounded up long-lasting products that stay put—and beautifully at that—proving that their long-wear declarations are definitely worthwhile. No dissolving. No wimpy formulas. No smudging shades. No duh!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Creme in #15, $22, available at Sephora—This shade is a perfectly neutral eyeshadow that works for day or night, won't crease or smudge, and stays put on lids. The secret? Evaporating oils that fix the pigments onto the skin and a polymer that encapsulates color, making it waterproof.
