It’s clear that face masks and face coverings aren’t going anywhere, especially as a second-wave seems to be on the way. Masks have been proven to help protect others and ourselves in the fight against COVID but don’t let a mask stop you from rocking your favourite lippie. You’re not alone if you think you’re the only one who’s smeared their lipstick on the inside of their mask so it’s time to make the switch to a powerful liquid lipstick if you haven’t already.
YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain
Don’t let the price scare you, this YSL lip stain is about as legit as it gets. Once applied with the unique doe-foot, this lippie isn’t going anywhere thanks to how quickly it dries down to a matte finish. There are a slew of shades available too so no matter what your vibe is for the day, there’s likely a hue to match!
Covergirl Outlast All-Day Lip Colour
If you’re not quite looking to splurge, your local drugstore certainly has your back. Covergirl’s Outlast Lip Colour has been a fave of mine for years and they’ve never let me down. Apply once in the morning and you’ll be set for the whole day no matter if you’re masking up, having dinner, or sweating it out during a workout.
Bite Beauty Outburst Longwear Lip Stain
Lip stains were the original liquid lipstick so it would be a pity to not include one in this list. Bite Beauty’s Longwear Lip Stain comes in three shades and their staying power is seriously superior. What’s amazing about this product is that it locks into your lips without drying them out thanks to the addition of hydrating coconut oil.
Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color
Fenty Beauty has been continuously slaying the game and the brand’s Longwear Lip Colour is another fan-fave. This weightless lipstick comes in a handful of shades that dry down to a soft matte finish. It goes on super smooth and folks rave about how it stays in place beautifully.
Honest Beauty Liquid Lipstick
If you’re in search of a liquid lipstick that lasts and is made with clean ingredients, then look no further than this one by Honest Beauty. Hyaluronic acid hydrates while avocado oil nourishes so there will be no dry lips insight.
Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick
Another drugstore deal that we can’t resist is Wet N Wild’s Catsuit Matte Lipstick. For just $7 you can snag a lippie that won’t budge. This baby goes on glossy but before you know it, it dries down and locks in for all-day wear, even under your mask.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
Last but certainly not least is Stila’s Stay All Day. With a boatload of shades to choose from, including red which is a godsend, this lipstick isn’t going anywhere once it’s been applied. Regardless of if you’re wearing a mask for a long period of time or sitting down to eat, this is def a liquid lipstick to have in your beauty arsenal.
