A mask is the one thing you don’t want to leave home without these days. Wearing one helps to keep you and others safe, but it can wreak havoc on your skin, and you can kiss your lip color goodbye! Wearing a bold lip is one of my signature looks, but in this time of mask-wearing, you need lip color that is in it for the long haul. Luckily, you don’t have to look any further than this post. Here are the best transfer-proof lipsticks to keep your favorite shade off of your mask and on your lips.
Stays on Forever
This is one of the longest-wear lip colors on the market. LipSense is formulated to stay on so long that the company even makes an Ooops Remover to get it off. It tingles a bit when you put it on, and it may be intense if you have sensitive lips, but I enjoyed wearing it and knowing that when I take off my mask, there’s no need to reapply.
Comes in Many Shades
Priced at $15, this lip color gives the coverage, color, and staying power of a luxury brand for half the price. Sephora knows cosmetics, and I have been wearing this line of lipstick since before the pandemic. They offer tons of popular and classic shades from nude to bold.
My favorite luxury brand has a 12-hour formula to keep your lip color in place all day. The matte powder pigment delivers bold color without parabens, sulfates, or mineral oil. Eighteen shades are available, but Crown Jewel is my favorite.
If luxury lip color is out of your price point, there are a few drugstore brands on the market that won’t transfer to your mask and still look great. Revlon offers 24 shades of Super Lustrous™ The Luscious Mattes Lipstick, which goes on smooth with full-coverage color.
Vegan & Cruelty-free
If you are a clean beauty fanatic like I am, then you will love Covergirl’s Full Spectrum Matte lip color. It’s is an affordable option that is also vegan and Leaping Bunny certified. The great news is that it costs under $8; however, this formula is only available in a few shades.
