The Top Mask-Proof Lipsticks You Need To Buy
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many changes to our lives. From working from home and not going out, to catching up with friends over Zoom, all of us have had to adapt to the pandemic one way or another. Another change that the pandemic has brought about is in people’s makeup routines. With many countries making it mandatory for citizens to wear masks while outdoors, people have started to give up makeup. For those that still want to doll up, the focus is generally placed on the eyes as that’s the only visible part of the face when wearing masks. With all this, the one makeup product that has started to become obsolete is lipstick. After all, many don’t see a point in putting it on if your mouth is going to be covered anyway. The select few who do apply lipstick often find it smeared off by the time they take off their masks.
With all this said, we still aren’t ready to give up lipsticks just yet. Maybe it’s become a habit, but our makeup routine doesn’t feel complete without swiping on our favorite red lippy. If you’re on the fence about whether putting on lipstick is worth the effort or are one of those who’ve given up wearing lipstick altogether, we’re here today to convince you otherwise. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of the top mask-proof lipsticks. These lipsticks are not only gorgeous but long-lasting as well. Keep reading to find out more!
1. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro
Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro has amassed a cult following long before the pandemic started. Some might even argue that this lipstick was what brought matte lips into trend. Before, many steered clear of matte lip products as they were infamous for drying out and cracking. However, this all changed when Giorgio Armani came out with this Lip Maestro. This creamy lipstick guarantees eight hours of wear and applies evenly to the lips. If you can only commit to buying one lipstick during this pandemic, the Lip Maestro is a must-buy. Available in 25 different shades, you’re bound to find one that suits you. But, if you’re having trouble picking one, we’d recommend 201, Giorgio Armani’s signature red that’s said to flatter all skin tones. Seeing how Armani rejected 95 shades before coming up with this one, we’re sure that you’ll love this shade and lip product as much as we do.
2. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour
Another matte liquid lipstick on our list is MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour. This highly pigmented and long-lasting lip product is available in six different shades and is perfect for achieving that timeless chic makeup look. This ultra-smooth lipstick glides onto the lip perfectly so you don’t have to worry about your lipstick cracking.
3. BH Cosmetics Liquid Linen Lipstick
If you’re into makeup and beauty, then you’ve probably heard raving reviews of BH Cosmetic’s lipstick products. Many who choose to sport bright lips often use one of BH Cosmetic’s lip products, given their highly pigmented and long-lasting formula. Not to mention that it is vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, with its comfortable and breathable formula, you won’t have to worry about it smudging under your mask or find it tight on your lips.
4. 3CE Cloud Lip Tint
For those who’ve stayed away from wearing lipstick to prevent it from smudging off onto your mask, then the thought of applying lip tint would be even more dreadful. Compared to lipstick, lip tint tends to be thicker, doesn’t dry quickly, and rubs off easier. However, 3CE’s Cloud Lip Tint is none of those things. Upon application, this lip product may seem like any other lip tint on the market. But, you’ll be in for a surprise after that. Not only does this product dry extremely quickly, but it also leaves a gorgeous gradient effect. If you want this lip tint to last even longer, here’s a simple tip: apply a thin layer of product, remove excess product, and finish with a light dab of loose powder.
