Lip Stains That Will Last the Entire Day

The newest liquid lipstick crop feels lighter enough to be called a lip stain, but has the color and consistency of a typical creamy bullet. Such supercharged formulations leave behind a punch of pigment which, at the end of the day, takes some elbow grease (and make-up removing oil) to scrub off. Look no further than these nine tried-and – true formulas if you’re looking for a lip color that will last through a long day at work, date night or wing-eating contest (no judgement).

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color

Thank god this lip ink comes with a rigid, precise applicator, so good luck gets it off once it’s set. Since it’s matte it’s a little drying, but if long-wear is your target, there’s no better formula for the color spectrum and price point.

RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek

Swipe over your lips or cheeks this natural and organic balm for a subtle flush of color that won’t budge. It comes in nine shades made of pigmented minerals.

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment

Calling this a “lip pigment” is just a fancy way of saying that if you add this water-light solution, it will not swing until you scrap it off at the end of the day with an oil-based remover.

Dior Addict Lip Tattoo

The accuracy of the hydrating, water-light is misleading. The paint lasts for hours on end, until it dries off.

Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

This classic stain on the lip leaves the sexiest cherry-pink flush behind. Most erotic, as it was literally created back in the day to stain not the lips — but anything else.
