Top 20 Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks

Rosdiana Ciaravolo

A makeup product that every beauty lover’s collection should have is a handy dandy liquid lipstick. Finishes vary from satin to glossy to matte, but we really want a formula that stays put through our lunches, coffee runs, dinner conversations, and even kisses (NEWS are on the way!). However, finding the right formula is not easy. Matte versions can be super drying, glossy finishes can leave evidence, and satin lipsticks can smudge and fade throughout the day. Counseling? Look for formulas with skin-loving ingredients.

“One of the most important things to look for in a liquid lipstick is one that contains ingredients that are moisturizing to make sure it’s not too drying,” celebrity makeup artist Lilly Keys tells ELLE.com. “Liquid lipstick is usually dry in nature to create that lasting stain and matte finish, so you want it to be as comfortable as possible.”

To avoid lipsticks that crack and settle into lip lines, or those that wipe off on someone’s clothes or skin during a hug, we’ve rounded up the 20 best long-lasting, comfortable lipsticks you can feel confident wearing.

Which type of lipstick is best overall and why?

Keys suggests looking for a formula that you feel most comfortable in. “Regular lipstick formulations feel more creamy and glossy. But if you’re looking for a long-lasting, luscious stain on your lips that won’t budge, you’ll want a matte finish when it comes to liquid lipstick,” she says.
