Like beepers and flip phones, dry and chalky long-wear lipsticks are behind us. The once scarce category has recently grown exponentially, with almost every makeup brand touting its own new and improved version. When it comes to new and improved, however, nothing surmounts to waterproof lipstick. I mean really ladies, look at how far we’ve come. Waterproof makeup used to be limited to mascara–and now we can add lipstick to the list! A lipstick that goes the distance–lasting from morning application through your last happy hour cocktail–is already hard to come by. Even more elusive is one that holds up when met with water. Now the buzz around H2O-resistant mascara seems to be overshadowed by waterproof lipstick, which is more than worthy and praise in the long-wear makeup arena. So, whether you’ll be on land or sea this summer (I know I’ll be more willing to hit the sea now), here are the best waterproof lipsticks that will actually last you hours:
- I’ll start by introducing Follacure’s latest lip beautifier: the Focallure Waterproof Matte Liquid Lipstick–which is an unrivaled take on the liquid lipstick. The lipsticks are featherweight, yet intense and vivid, with smooth and ultra matte texture. The tried and true comfort-wear formula is infused with antioxidants and an exclusive complex to help maintain the lips hydration. The lightweight formula glides on a thin coat of color that intensifies as it sets to a matte, waterproof and transfer-free finish with amazing, long-lasting staying power. The lippie is so good and easily stays on the lips for hours like the lipstick was just freshly applied; you might as well forget you are wearing anything on your lips at all! They come in a luxe feeling perspex tube with the best kind of applicator for a liquid lipstick–a doe-foot applicator. There are also a whopping 15 shades available, the most popular of which include: Burgundy (a beautiful plum-aubergine color), Fuzzy Wuzzy (a unique brownish-dark pink shade with red undertones), and Ruddy Pink (a gorgeous dusty pink).
- NYX Full Throttle Lipstick is a color addict’s ultimate fix and a makeup artist’s dream. The waterproof lipstick covers your lips with super-saturated matte color and features a unique bullet with a beveled edge for lining, filling, and perfecting your pout to your heart’s desire. The formula glides on smoothly and does not highlight the dryness at all. Rather, it settles down to a perfect matte finish. The intensity is just bang on. On the whole, the transfer is second to none and lasts for hours without fading.
- Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick has the coverage of a lipstick, the application of a gloss, and the long-lasting results of a stain. The pure pigment is as rich as color gets, and it stays that way all day long. It is waterproof, budge-proof, and transfer-proof. Best of all, the lips stay moisturized when painted with this waterproof liquid lipstick, thanks to a nourishing combo of vitamin E and avocado oil.
- It is fitting that one of the colors in the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint collection is called Yaassss, because that what you ladies will be saying when you realize just how long the waterproof liquid lipstick stays on without even the slightest smudge or smear. Because it is a liquefied and concentrated version of a traditional lipstick, the pigments are intense and saturated, not to mention completely mineral-based. What more could you possibly ask for out of a lipstick?
Ultimately, all of the waterproof liquid lipsticks mentioned above are true standouts, delivering serious staying power, plus lip-pleasing texture and a wide array of shades. To top it all off, they are all available on just4girls.pk/blog for your summer swimming pleasure. These waterproof liquid lipsticks are not going anywhere until you take them off. Just imagine all the possibilities! This summer is for your taking, ladies!
