These Transfer-Proof Lipsticks Won’t Come Off on Your Face MaskAugust 10, 2020
Wearing a mask is the new norm. Keeping ourselves and others safe from the spread of COVID-19 is our number-one objective, but the makeup lover in us still wants to rock a full face beat underneath our protective mask. After a few trial runs, though, we’ve come to the conclusion that lip gloss and face masks don’t mesh well — it’s a mess. But fear not, we’ve discovered a few options that are long-wearing, affordable, transfer-proof and won’t rub off on your protective face mask.
Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick
No matter the shade you choose, rest assured this liquid lipstick won’t be smudging, transferring or moving throughout the day. Its matte formula lasts for up to 16 hours, applies smoothly and won’t dry out your lips. The highly pigmented color will stay on all day, even with a mask. Plus, it comes in six new coffee-inspired shades.
L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain
If you want a great shade on your lips but don’t like the tight or drying feeling of many liquid lipsticks, we think this option from L’Oréal Paris is going to be your next obsession. It applies like a liquid lippie but dries down to a lightweight stain that has a barely-there feel.
NYX Professional Makeup Shout Loud Satin Lipstick
Just because you’re wearing a protective mask doesn’t mean you have to wear a matte lipstick by default. Take this option from NYX. It’s creamy and has a satin finish but won’t budge throughout the day. Formulated with mango and shea butter, the product will keep your lips hydrated and supple for up to four hours. If you’ll be out all day, just make sure to throw it in your bag, so you can reapply on the go.
It’s a fact: A girl can never have too many lipsticks. One that’s always in our rotation is this liquid matte formula from E.l.f. With shades ranging from pink nudes and deep purples to daring taupes, there’s bound to be a color that not only looks great with your complexion but also matches your mask.
Milani Amore Satin Matte Lip Cream
On your next drugstore run, make sure to pick up this satin lip cream from Milani. Not only do we love the hydrating and creamy texture (it’s made with shea butter and soybean oil), but the formula also has a built-in lip primer to smooth lines and chapped lips.
The Lip Bar Matte Liquid Lipstick
Lip gloss stans, this one’s for you. The Lip Bar’s vegan Matte Liquid Lipsticks, which last eight to 12 hours, feel like a gloss upon application. They’re super silky, but after a few seconds they dry down to a matte finish so you don’t have to worry about the color coming off on your face mask.
Winky Lux Flower Balm Lip Stain
If you’ve yet to find your go-to lip shade, Winky Lux has you covered. The formula reacts with your lips’ natural pH to give you the perfect color every single time. The lip balm and stain hybrid is not only hydrating and nourishing, but it also features an actual chrysanthemum inside. Excuse us while we add this to our cart.
