Nothing ruins the mood faster than smearing lipstick all over your partner’s face. For this very reason, I decided to investigate what lip colors truly live up to their longwear claims by performing a kiss test on my husband. After trying countless tubes, these are the best longwear lip colors out there. Trust me, they’ll last through any makeout session.
One swipe of this mineral-based lipstick was all I needed for all-over color. Plus, unlike some stay-put formulations that feel dehydrating on, its combination of sunflower seed wax and raspberry seed oil kept my pout soft and supple.
Beyond its yummy scent, this liquid color leaves behind a look-at-me sheen that makes lips look a little fuller. Also nice? It doesn’t crack or crease.
While it may look like lip liner, this chic felt-tip pen is actually a liquid lipstick. Use its inky, matte formula to subtly define lips or create a colorful statement look that won't feather or fade.
Part liquid lipstick, part lip stain, its unique ink formula glides on lips, leaving behind a silky finish that your S.O. will want to try and kiss off.
With the phrase “Forever Kissable” included in its name, I had high expectations for this lip marker. Luckily, it lived up to the hype. Plus, unlike typical stains, its pigment was extra vivid hours after application.
Its compact packaging and powder-like appearance had me skeptical that it would really last. Spoiler: It did. The airy, whipped consistency was goofproof to apply and as soon as it dried down, it felt so lightweight that I forgot I even had it on.
One of the OGs of liquid lipstick, this formula is still as long-wearing and smooch-proof as ever.
Not only does is dry in thirty seconds, making it ideal for a pre-kiss touch ups, it has a built-in primer to keep it in place all night.
Despite my hubby’s hesitation to pucker up because of the formula’s intense color, it didn’t budge or smear.
