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

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lip ColorThank 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

RMS Beauty Lip2CheekSwipe 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

NARS Powermatte Lip PigmentCalling 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

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

Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

Benetint Cheek & Lip StainThis 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.
