Posted Sunday November 3, 2013 7:00 AM GMT
We’ve all been there: At the end of a fabulous night with a total hottie, he walks you to the door, goes in for the kill, and then adjusts his kiss to your cheek to avoid your lipstick. #Fail.
The truth is, most guys love the look of a bold pucker, just not when the product smears all over theirs — which makes things in the smooching department complicated … until now.
We pulled together five of our favorite smudge-free formulas capable of lasting through the longest of lip locks.
Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15, $15: Clinique products never seem to disappoint, and this option is no exception. The formula is “high on color, long on comfort,” and is extremely moisturizing, too!
Lancome Color Design – Sensational Effects Lipcolor, $22: We love the Color Design line, as they come in five fabulous finishes — cream, sheen, shimmer, metallic and matte. Each one lends a fantastic fade-free tint that’ll draw attention to your kisser all night long.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor, $7.50: It’s hard to believe that for under $10, you can purchase quality lip color — but it’s true! This drugstore fave boasts a creamy texture with sensational color and incredible staying power. Truly a beauty bargain!
Urban Decay Lip Envy, $17: The hydrating, gel-based lip stain dries with a matte finish and leaves behind a subtle, yet just-bitten look. It’s infused with vitamin E, green tea, chamomile, and ginkgo biloba extracts to lend your lips the moisture they need to capture the perfect kiss.
Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense, $20: One stroke is all it takes to achieve bold, beautiful color with this gem. It’s formulated with 50 percent more pigment than regular products of this sort, meaning intense color is ensured and effortless glam is guaranteed.
