L’OFFICIEL: For a night of celebration and partying on New Year’s Eve, a long-lasting lipstick is a must—whether you have a NYE kiss or not. Long-wearing lipstick that won’t budge became an essential when daily mask-wearing was established as the norm, and thankfully there are plenty of options that fit the bill. Whether you prefer a velvet matte finish or something glossy, fiery red or a your-lips-but-better nude, these smudge-proof lip colors will last throughout your NYE festivities.
These long-lasting, smudge-proof lip products will last until midnight (and even beyond).
Put to the test during a day of mask-wearing and a night of partying, this liquid lipstick stays put. Available in six shades, the pigmented and perfumed (it smells like the brand’s favorite Love fragrance) lip color has a creamy consistency that dries matte.
