A great lipstick always pulls everything together… too bad it’s nearly impossible to find the perfect color, much less one that lasts all day. Check out some great smudge proof lip options below, along with a helpful skin color guide to boot!
The Lip Stain
For 8+ hour wear, Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stains ($36) are weightless, non-drying and move along with your lips when your lips move (no judgement). The texture is semi-sheer but buildable with 18 high pigment colors. Just wait 10 seconds or so between coats to get deeper, longer lasting color.
The Lip Pigment
For a defined matte finish, the Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26) are long lasting, flexible and light weight. The wand allows for precise application, setting instantly. 18 great colors for all skin types.
OurBFF Tip: For a more defined look, first line lips with applicator, then fill with color. Shake before use.
The Lip Crayon (Creamy Matte)
If you want a long wearing creamier matte option, the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24) won’t dry your lips as these sticks are made with food grade ingredients (good enough to eat!). No phthalates, parabens or sulfates. Come in 24 vibrant colors.
OurBFF Tip: These crayons are a lipstick and a liner in one. If you want a sharper edge, just sharpen the tip with a built in sharpener at the base and off you go.
