How you choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day is up to you, though we like the idea of kissing the person you love while wearing your favorite lipstick shade. As makeup lovers with too many lipstick recommendations to keep inside, we can’t help but share the kiss-proof lipsticks we always rely on for days like this. Whether you plan to spend the day kissing or eating burritos, here are lipsticks our editors can’t live without, including lots of drugstore options to keep your bank account happy.
Shout Loud is the heavily saturated, extremely pigmented formula that you’ll want to wear for Valentine’s Day and beyond. Not only does it have a long-lasting, satin finish, but it also comes in 24 bold shades and each bullet is stamped with a heart (so apropos).
Vice Lipstick is a cult-classic formula that’s comfortable, pigmented and nourishing. It contains aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and babassu oils to hydrate and moisturize your lips even while you smooch!
The Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain is an opaque matte liquid lipstick that stains the lips flawlessly. The formula allows you to forego touch-ups and comes in myriad shades, including glitters.
Tried and true, the Super Stay Matte Ink is a must-have. It won’t budge if you’re smooching on a date with your S.O. or eating with your girls for a Galentine’s get together.
For a luxe, matte finish, the Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Stain is a fan-favorite for good reason. It’s pigmented, long-lasting and has a precise doe-foot tip that makes applying the product a breeze.
For a velvety matte finish, the Velvetines will be your go-to. This formula is one of our favorites because it’s thick, creamy and will last for hours.
