The Perfect Long-Lasting Lipstick for Every Type of Dinner DateJuly 28, 2021
For a Pizza Date: Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick
Meet the full-coverage matte lippie that won’t budge, ever. Put on your favorite shade in the morning and you’ll still probably have to scrub it off your lips at the end of the night. For this very reason, it’s our go-to for lipstick-destructing foods, like the oily, greasy items we can’t help but love.
For a Fancy Dinner: Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick
This is another instance when a smudge-proof matte lipstick, like this formula from Armani, should be your pick. If you’re having a delicious three-course meal, you’ll want to focus on every bite of the delicious food, instead of worrying about whether your lipstick is still looking flawless.
For a Popcorn-Bingeing Movie Night: YSL Beauty Volupté Shine Lipstick Balm
We love popcorn, but the salty snack can seriously dry out your lips. Keep them hydrated no matter how much popcorn you consume with a nourishing lipstick like Volupté Shine. The creamy pigment also won’t bleed or smear as you chow down.
For a Cocktail Date: L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss Plump
One of our favorite things about semi-sheer lip colors is that they fade well. That way if you forget to reapply in between martinis or Moscow mules, it won’t be noticeable. Pro Gloss Plump gives lips a natural flush and a plumped finish that’s perfect for date night.
For a Show: Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Matte Lipstick
If you’re headed out to see a show, whether IRL or on the big screen, you’ll want to bring the drama. Opt for this highly pigmented, comfortable and semi-matte formula by Lancôme to leave lips saturated in vibrant color all night long.
For a Home-Cooked Meal: IT Cosmetics Pillow Lips Solid Serum Lip Gloss
For a casual date night, we love a tinted gloss or balm that gives us a natural hint of color, yet is low-maintenance to wear. The Pillow Lips Solid Serum fits the bill and contains hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid to keep lips smooth and thoroughly kissable.
