As you guys know, I love wearing a bold lip. It’s the easiest, least expensive and most-chic way to pull your entire look together with a flick of your wrist! A while ago, I shared three tips that I swear by to make your bold lip last all day but sometimes you just want to put on a lip color and go! So the CINCteam and I did some research and found 5 Kiss Proof lipsticks just in time for Valentine’s Day (wink wink) that have staying power. Each of these colors are universally super flattering and there’s one that works for every price point!


I’m pretty sure this matte lip color could last even longer than 24 hours. It goes on velvety smooth and sets in seconds. Trust me when I tell you that this color will stay in place and will. not. budge!


I use this almost as a stain. I dab the product in the middle of my upper and bottom lip, then I use my finger to smudge it. It gives a gorgeous wash of color, and if I have any leftover product on my fingers, I dab it on my cheeks to give an extra flush!


If you’re a fan of drugstore beauty, then you’re going to LOVE this. I’m pretty sure at least one girl on the #CINCteam has a matte lip cream shade on every day! These lip colors are all super pigmented and last all day, plus they’re super affordable. What’s not to love?

Nars Pencil

This Nars Lip Pencil is a cult classic and for good reason! It goes on like a velvety dream and since it’s a pencil, your application can be really precise. When I wear this, I usually act like it’s a lip liner at first and line my lips, then fill them in!

Bite Beauty Lipstick

This matte lipstick is one of those that I always have in my bag in case of emergencies. The red is super flattering, it goes on super easily and it lasts all day! If I have a little extra time, I’ll layer this over the lip pencil for a deeper red look.

There you have it! 5 Kiss-Proof lipsticks just in time for Valentine’s Day (*wink wink*)! PS: If you haven’t seen my Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Guide CLICK HERE!
