The Best Kiss-Proof Lipsticks for Valentine’s Day, According to Our EditorsFebruary 02, 2021
As makeup lovers who have tested more lippies than we care to admit, we know a thing or two about kiss-proof lipsticks. To help get you ready for Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing our favorites. So whether you plan to spend the day smooching someone special or eating chocolates, here are the long-lasting lipsticks our editors can’t live without, including a handful of drugstore options to keep your bank account happy.
Want a glossy look without the sticky feel? This NYX product delivers. One end of the lippie provides intense pigment, while the other side is perfect for achieving a high-shine finish. Make sure to check out World Shaper, a vibrant pink-red shade that’s sure to put you in the holiday mood.
For a stain that won’t even leave a mark on your wine glass, this drugstore option is our go-to. It has a barely-there feel, keeps lips hydrated and will stay looking fresh all night long.
This collagen-infused lippie will plump out your pout before date night. If you plan on eating (or kissing!) opt for the matte formula. The product has a pigmented formula that you’ll want to wear for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
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 during wear.
This long-wear and transfer-resistant lippie is a staple in our makeup bag. It won’t budge, come off on your mask en route to dinner or fade throughout the night.
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 lasts for hours.
For an opaque matte liquid lipstick that stains the lips flawlessly, check out this L’Oréal option. The formula allows you to forego touch-ups and comes in a wide variety of shades, including glitter options.
