8 Waterproof Lipsticks That Stay Put — Even in the Pool
Lipstick is one of those things that can make you instantly feel pretty when the pigment and texture are right. A great lipstick not only enhances the color of your eyes, which can in turn make your eyes appear brighter, but it makes you feel good inside, too. In a 2011 study by Procter & Gamble, researchers from Harvard and Boston University discovered that women felt more confident while wearing lipstick. So it makes sense that we need lipsticks that stand up to water play this summer. Or, at the very least, get us through a few rounds of rosé.
Think about it, wouldn’t it be nice to have a beautiful, nondrying lip color that was workout-proof and had a crazy-extensive shade range? You’re in luck. We spotted a few brands that go the distance with their waterproof lipsticks. One thing is for sure: we’re stockpiling every one of these. Enjoy!
BareMinerals BAREPRO Longwear Matte Lipstick, $10 at Sephora
The brand's matte lipstick is not only waterproof, it's transfer-proof, smudge-proof, budge-proof, kiss-proof and cocktail-proof. Plus, the long-wearing formula nurtures lips via botanical oils and waxes.
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick, $19 at Smashbox
We have a love-hate relationship with matte lipsticks. Despite being extremely pigmented and long-wearing, they tend to be as dry as a desert. But that’s not the case with this water-resistant matte formula infused with Primer Oil Complex for a weightless feel.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, $22 at Stila
Confession: This lipstick isn't waterproof, but it's water-resistant and when you're enjoying water fun this summer you'll be so glad you applied it. It doesn't bleed or transfer and the formula boasts vitamin E and avocado oil to keep your lips hydrated.
Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, $20 at Sephora
Not only will this mineral pigment-packed lip paint last and last, it dries in a flash. And it promises to never crack or feather.
Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint, $15 at Fenty Beauty
This long-wear lipstick is so weightless you’ll forget you even have it on until the compliments start rolling in.
Beauty Bakerie Matte Lip Whip, $20 at Beauty Bakerie
Long-lasting, smudge-proof AND waterproof. What could possibly be better?
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick, $9.49 at Maybelline
You can eat, drink, kiss, swim or pretty much whatever you want because this lipstick isn’t going anywhere for up to 16 hours. And it won’t cake or flake.
Lime Crime Matte Velvetines, $20 at Lime Crime
Boasting a velvety texture, this French vanilla-infused formula glides on with the greatest of ease and dries down to an ideal matte finish. Plus, it won't budge.
