Hit List: Most Kiss-Proof Lip Color

What’s the Most Kiss-Proof Lip Color that you’ve tried?

Share your pick!  And don’t forget to share why 🙂  Thanks to Olechka for today’s question!

Any of the lip products that start liquid, then dry down and pretty much cling to lips like grim death – MUFE Aqua Rouges, MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour (the originals, not the one in the bullet), etc.

This question makes me remember one time me and my boyfriend had, er, a french kiss sesh and my red lipstick stained his ginger beard so bad he had to shave it off… Haha! The only lipstick I’ve owned that is this transferproof is probably Covergirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor. I mean it was so bad I had to scrub it off with a green scrub pad and I still had patches of it on the next day. First and last time I wore it.

Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick. After it dries its the closest thing I found to bring truely kiss proof. Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks are a close second.

The closest thing I have to being “kiss proof” is Bite’s matte lip crayon. It does transfer a little within the first few minutes of wear, but it dries down to leave a stain that pretty much stays put all day.

Surprising but I find that if you blot it after applying, Revlon’s super lustrous lipsticks in the creme formula are transfer proof for me!

What kind of kissing are we talking here, Christine? If we’re talking quick kisses or pecks on the cheek, Lipstick Queen is pretty good. Guerlain Rouge G survives better than you’d think for a closer formula.

If we get into passionate kissing, though…I’ve yet to find a formula that if won’t take off before diving in. 😉

Lipsense is still the best for me – by far. When I discovered Lipsense it was a life changer. There are a few mentioned here though that I’ve not tried so YSL, Kat Von D, and Hourglass are in my future.

I find most stains stay on my lips pretty well as long as there aren’t any oils involved. But since I’d much rather kiss people who know how to use lip balm…

I find the Covergirl outlast all day liquid lipsticks are completely transfer proof. I also have no problem removing them with an oil based make up remover like clinque’s purple bottled one.

The Sephora rouge-something stain actually has worked awesomely for me. I just wore the #10 Red color the other day at work and never touched up, even after eating and drinking and then coming home 12 hours after applying it. It never transferred onto my mug while drinking and it only faded slightly in the very center of my lips a smidgen.

Stila Liquid lipsticks have been absolutely kiss proof for me.. 😉
From drugstore I would like to add Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lip balms were pretty much transfer-proof an hour post application. 🙂
I will try MAC prolong wear lip colors too.. 🙂

Any stain-type lip product. There’s a lot out there!
For my wedding, I wore a Double Touch by Kiko, which is basically a dupe of Mac Pro Longwear fluid version, much cheaper and that I also find more comfortable.

Max Factor Lipfinity and MUFE Aqua Rouge. I prefer the MF ones over the MUFE ones as the formula of the lipcolor isn’t as drying. They’re also more forgiving at application because they don’t dry quite as fast as the MUFE ones (…which dry *too* fast).

Not gonna lie, I usually wipe my lipstick off before kissing anyone in an ‘actual kiss’ sort of way – I’m not counting those ‘not-as-lame-as-an-air-kiss-but-still-more-a-cheek-bump-than-a-real-kiss’ situations, those you’re totally fine to leave your lipstick where it is for, even if it has slip!

Failing that…Benetint I suppose? The stain from Revlon Fire and Ice?

MAC Retro Matte formula is pretty good. It doesn’t transfer much at all and the ultra matte finish won’t leave him feeling sticky or anything lol

Bourjois Velvet Rouge Edition stays forever. Serioudly not even makeup remover gets it all off… Topshops All About Me is actually quite stubborn too, it just stains. Haven’t tried other shades from Topshop though.

You will never believe this when I tell you. I was actually shocked when I discovered some cheap $3 drug store item had better lasting power than some of my high end dept store lip products. I’m such a junkie for lips, eyes, & blus, I will buy anything and try it. Any product that stays on through my coffee drinking and my 1 yucky habit (smoking) and still be on my lips deserves a shoutv out. Jordana twist & shine moisturizing balm stain, they are like clinique chubby sticks. The first application is important because it does leave a stain on your lips so make sure to get in the lines and corners. It’s not a faded stain it looks like a fresh application. Comes in 8 colors i think, they are all beautiful. I got mine from Walgreens & they have a website.
