Recap of last year's NYE for me - the boy and I were knocked out and asleep by 11PM. Really wild lives we lead. But I'll make it to midnight this year (and get in a midnight's kiss!). This post was requested by one of my oldest, dearest friends haha. And this is for all you ladies out there that are expecting a quick (or not so quick) smooch this New Year's Eve. The best lip products to stay put all night long have got to be a liquid lipstick. With the outpour of liquid lipsticks from various brands, I thought I'd give a quick roundup on the ones that I do have. But if you don't wanna risk lipsticks - just go for a tinted lip balm - my favorites are the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments. Your S.O. will appreciate your soft lips.
The L O N G L A S T I N G Products
At the top of my list are the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. I have the Lolita duo and I absolutely love the formula on these - they're thin, lightweight, and feel so comfortable on the lips. Currently loving Lolita II which is a warm terracotta color. Next up would be the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, these are pretty much budge proof and really pack a punch of color - I'd recommend Beso for a bright red, or Amore for a dark and vampy lip.
The A F F O R D A B L E Products
The Sephora Cream Lip Stain is an easy one to access with a great variety of shades. This one definitely can transfer, so be sure to pat and dab with a powder to help set this one beforehand. I have Always Red, but there are definitely a ton of other colors to float your boat. The ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip line is definitely an affordable one and one that is much hyped right now. I tested a few of these out this past weekend and can definitely say that you get what you pay for. These are the most drying of all the liquid lipsticks I've tried and find they tend to bleed after a few hours. This is one I'd definitely recommend to pair with a lip liner if this is the route you're going with. My favorite of the bunch has got to be More Better which was definitely inspired by Nida (@CakedToTheNines).
*Four hours of wear into the ColourPop lip products and look how little of it came off onto my mug. Go ahead and smooch girls - you'll be fine!*
What is your secret to kiss proof lips?
