It’s almost time to ring in 2023. We hope you have someone special to kiss after the ball drops. The perfect lipstick can really make or break your night. Reapplying is a pain and we don’t want to get “lips” on anyone after a good smooch. So we asked and got the best lipstick for kissing.
Maybelline’s Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick – Fashion designer Nicole Bolton, a beauty expert and the co-founder of Iconic Celebrity Outfits, a website that helps you dress like your favorite celebrity, gave her selections, which included this lipstick. “I love this lip color because of its crazy staying power that can stay for about 8 hours,” she told us. “This does not fade away even after eating, drinking and kissing… The chic and applauding matte look makes your lips more sensual.” Best thing about it is it’s very affordable. Price: $10.99 at Ulta.
Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color – Bolton said this lipstick is easy to apply and great for kissing on new year’s eve. “This lipstick’s scent was fainter than the rest. It is designed very well and has the easiest pigment to layer,” she said. She suggests Ruby. “If you’re a fan of natural looks, this could be an excellent option for New Years Eve,” she added. Price: $22 at Ulta.
