A make-out session that ends in both of you covered in smeared lipstick just isn’t cool. We have tried and tested lip products that claim kiss-proof status and listed our top picks. But first, be warned that long-lasting lipsticks take some time to settle. So give it at least 5 minutes before pouncing on your sweetie or else he will be the one wearing the lipstick in this relationship. Also, long-wearing products are by their nature, very dry. So exfoliate your lips on a daily basis and have lip balm nearby to salvage your drying lips.
Now on to our makeout must-haves!
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
So this one isn’t really a lipstick. But it made our list because it delivers longevity, opaqueness and moisture. It isn’t too magic marker-y, which is good for a stain. To top it off, the colors are amazing and you are sure to find a favorite among the 12 colors that it currently offers.
L’Oreal – Invincible Kiss Proof Lipstick
This one is a one-swipe lipstick that delivers long lasting, opaque color that won’t budge for hours. We found it a lot less drying than other long lasting lipsticks. Also, it’s less fidgety too since you won’t need to apply two coats, one color and one gloss, to activate the kiss-proof quality.
CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Lipcolor
You get a dual-ended wand, with gloss at one end and a moisturizing topcoat at the other end. It promises a whopping 16 hours of color. There is shade for everyone among the 40 currently on offer. Try Ever Red-dy or Ruby Reflection for a head-turning pout all day long.
Estée Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick
Available in two finishes, i.e. satin lasting crème and lustrous lasting shimmer, your lips will thank you for wearing these. One application lasts the whole day and remember what we said about long lasting lipsticks being dry? That is totally not applicable here.
Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick
This one promises 14 hours of color that looks freshly applied, without the yucky dry flakes. And it delivers! This one will go from the boardroom to the bedroom, it packs a lot of punch and is only for serious lipstick lovers. This one will not quit and you may just have to remove it with wipes at the end of the day. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya’.
