the mass of the star has no effect on its lifetime
Large and su­per-­mas­sive stars rapidly burn out. The lifetime of the blue su­per­giant is only a few tens of millions of years. Mean­while, the small red dwarfs emit small amounts of energy and burn out very slowly - it is es­ti­mat­ed that they may shine through the hundreds of billions of years.
