Nothing ruins the mood faster than smearing lipstick all over your partner’s face.

After trying countless tubes, these are the best longwear lip colors out there. Trust me, they’ll last through any makeout session.

1 BareMinerals BarePro Longwear Liquid Lipstick ($20; sephora.com)

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.

3 Dior Rouge Dior Ink Liner ($32; saks.com)

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.

4 L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick ($12; ulta.com)

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.

5 Ardell Beauty Forever Kissable Jumbo Lip Stain ($10; sallybeauty.com)

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.

6 Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse ($22; ulta.com)

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.

7 Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick ($20; ulta.com)

One of the OGs of liquid lipstick, this formula is still as long-wearing and smooch-proof as ever.
