Perfect for a NYE Kiss: Long-Lasting Lipsticks

With the clean slate that January 1st offers every year, loads of kissing is definitely a prerequisite for New Year’s Eve. Whether you’re smooching with your sweetie or locking lips with a new lover, you’re going to need a long-lasting lipstick that can hold up under heavy use. Here’s a list of lippies that are up for the job!

Regardless of your skin tone, nothing pops like bright red lips. Apply Clinique’s Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Red Red Red ($14.50 on and prepare to stand out with soft, long-lasting color that won’t dry or stain your kisser!

Want a look that’s a little more subdued? Covergirl’s Outlast Smoothwear All-Day Lipcolor ($9.29 on in Soft Pink Satin will do the trick. This super-soft lipstick conditions and stays on for up to 10 hours (even through eating a few NYE hors d’oeuvres!).

A heavy NYE makeout sesh doesn’t calls for a lipstick…it calls for a lip stain. Stila’s Cheek & Lip Stain ($24 on reacts to pH levels in cheeks and lips for color that’s unique to you! The price tag is worth every penny, since it’s usable for lips and cheeks, comes in an easy-to-apply pen format, moisturizes AND helps slow the degeneration of collagen. All that in addition to being long-wearing? Yes, please!

Maybelline’s Superstay Color ($9.99 at in Reliable Raspberry boasts long-lasting color without flaking. If you’re a shine junkie, add the included golden shimmer balm for additional kiss-me blingage!

L’Oréal’s Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Compact ($11.99 on in Apricot will make your lips look absolutely delectable. A mirrored compact with gloss and a mirror means this stuff glides on and stays on…for 16 hours. Talk about a self-contained product!
