There’s nothing worse than a sloppy, lipstick-smeared-all-over-the-place kiss. Which is why we’ve put together this tried and true list of the most kiss-proof, transfer-proof, and smudge-proof lipsticks on the market that are loved by beauty bloggers, reviewers around the world, and of course, me! Read on to discover your perfect kiss-proof product and get to testing them for yourself! 😉
CoverGirl Outlast All-Day LipColor is a 2-step lip colour that lasts for up to 16 hours with no flaking, feathering, or bleeding. The first step is to apply an even layer of the lip colour and to wait until it dries completely. The second step is to apply the moisturizing topcoat to add shine and to keep the product as comfortable to wear as possible. The most important tip is to wait until the colour dries 100% before applying the topcoat; if those steps are done correctly your lip colour should last all day long with no touch-ups necessary!
One reviewer (HeatherLM from Palmetto, FL) on the CoverGirl website says, “I have been wearing this product everyday for 16 years! It stays on all day. I will never use anything else ever.” The combination of that rave review, the super inexpensive price point of around $9, and the 40+ colours to choose from should have you running to your local drugstore to pick up a tube (or 10) ASAP.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is every beauty bloggers‘ favourite liquid lipstick for a reason! This product is a longwearing, highly pigmented, matte finish, uber comfortable liquid lipstick. The Kat Von D range currently has 42 shades to choose from, including black, turquoise, and a slew of nude and pink shades! The best thing about this product is that you can line and fill in your lips using only the product and it’s applicator. For the most kiss-proof results, apply one coat, let dry, and then apply a second coat.
This transfer-resistant Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor by L’Oreal lasts for up to 24 hours without reapplying. Like a few of the other products mentioned on this list, there’s a 2 step process that includes applying the high intensity lip color to your lips, allowing the product to dry completely (which takes approx. 2 minutes), and applying the pro-seal balm to lock in the colour and staying power. If you follow those instructions perfectly, you shouldn’t experience any flaking, clumping, or colour loss. This product lasts well into the morning hours for those late night shenanigans.
LipSense is a product that looks like a complete scam, from the old school looking website, promotional content, and packaging, plus all of the independent distributors selling the product, but I can assure you it’s more legit than it looks (and it actually WORKS!)
LipSense products are waterproof and they don’t kiss-off, smear-off, rub-off, or budge-off. LipSense comes in over 50 shades that can be mixed together to create your perfect colour. LipSense wearers absolutely swear by the product and say that they’ll never purchase anything else. While LipSense does require 3 coats of the product to achieve the best results, each coat dries in about 5 seconds, which is must faster than other brands. To create your own custom colour, simply choose a new colour per layer that you apply.
The Sephora Cream Lip Stain has recently become my everyday go-to lip product and I honestly don’t think I’d ever purchase any other brand of lipstick ever again. The colours are amazing, they apply so easily, they smell amazing, they do not transfer and they’re easy to remove. Usually when a product is super transfer-proof, you need a boatload of oil to remove the product, but that’s definitely not the case with this product, I can always get it off flawlessly using just my regular makeup remover. While I don’t currently have a man to kiss up on, I do eat a lot of sushi, so I feel like that’s an equally good test (LOL!) My favorite colour right now is ‘37 Pink Frosting’ because it’s the perfect dusty rose colour, which is super trendy right now. I even dab and blend concealer over top of the product to lighten up the colour and I still have no problem with transfer or fading.
If you’re not into purchasing a bunch of new lip products for your collection, simply pick up this one.
