There is nothing more embarrassing than pulling away from a steamy makeout sesh, and finding out that your lipstick has smeared all over both of your faces. While liquid lipstick is supposedly known for its ability to stay on your lips- and your lips only, we’ve all probably found out the hard way that this isn’t always the case. We’ve tried and tested all of these liquid lipsticks and are ready to let you in on our date night secret weapons. You don’t have to give up your favorite bold lip with these makeout-proof liquid lipsticks for your next date night.
Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink
This is the Holy Grail of long-wearing liquid lipsticks. If you’ve ever used this lipstick before, you know that it is pretty hard to take it off. If it can survive a night of burgers and beers without transferring any lipstick marks anywhere, it can definitely a night of kissing. We love these liquid lipsticks because the colors are super saturated, it won’t budge, and it surprisingly doesn’t dry your lips out despite the fact that it’s matte. Your date won’t be able to resist your lips when they see you in one of these gorgeous shades. Maybe it’s Maybelline, but it’s most likely you and your charm.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks might be on the pricier side but is totally worth the investment. It comes in 27 matte shades, 2 satins, and 6 shimmer finishes. With all of these shades available, you’ll definitely find your new favorite makeout-proof liquid lipstick.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
ABH is known for its iconic highlighter pallets, so it may come as a surprise that they make liquid lipsticks that are just as high in quality as their pallets. With 33 shades to choose from, there’s a color for everyone and for every occasion. Our personal favorite is the shade “Crush”, a pinky-nude matte lipstick that’s perfect for a casual date. We love these liquid lipsticks because they’re long-wearing, the formula is creamy and won’t dry out your lips.
NYX Liquid Suede Liquid Creme Lipstick
NYX is like our date night wingman, always coming to save the day with their high quality and affordable makeup products. These liquid lipsticks are waterproof so they’re perfect for a beach date or for any occasion where you think your lips will get wet. They’re also infused with avocado oil and Vitamin E so they’ll keep your lips looking soft and kissable. Did we also mention that they’re super pigmented? You can thank us later.
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick
These liquid lipsticks are accurately named. They’re truly always on. The formula is creamy and spreads evenly, especially with their arrow-pointed applicator. They’re supposed to stay on for eight hours long, which is a slightly generous statement but they are definitely long-wearing. We recommend their “Driver’s Seat” shade! Not only is the driver’s seat a great makeout spot, but it’s also a beautiful orangey-pink shade that is universally flattering on any skin tone.
NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment
NARS’ liquid lipsticks have the best pointed-applicators, which gives you optimal precision so you don’t color outside of the lines. These liquid lipsticks come in 18 shades, ranging from nudes to deep burgundies. They’re full coverage and long-lasting, ensuring that they’ll only stay on your lips and not your partners. You don’t need to worry about these liquid lipsticks transferring or budging!
