The discussion today in WODROB’s HQ was how every lipstick in the makeup pouch is just another reason for the significant other’s rant about lipstick stains. Not only is it bothersome for some guys, we’ve also heard that some men complain that wearing lipstick that smudge is a turn-off. Which is why we thought about going through our beauty boxes and collating the best kiss-proof lipsticks WE can vouch for. Check out Team WODROB’s favourite non-transferable lipsticks that are perfect for when you’re dating or not. PS: It was International Kissing Day yesterday, but who ever said we’re late to the party!

Though I personally think Kat Von D and Anastasia Soare are nothing short of Beauty Goals, I am not one of those edgy souls when it comes to makeup. In fact, my makeup routine is pretty minimal, But thanks to my close friend, who is a professional makeup artist, I am privileged to try and test some super awesome products. That’s how I found the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick. Veronica is a taupe that’s not just very trendy but also a cult shade. Oh, and if you’re struggling to find the perfect kiss-proof lipstick, THIS is the one.

I was gifted the Dolce & Gabbana Matte Lipstick in Dolce Fire 605 and it’s now a must-have in my makeup pouch. Love the shade because it is the perfect red and also gives an opaque coverage. The orange-meets-red hue is very rich and goes with most outfits. Also, it does not smudge and is kiss-proof, so nothing better!

I love Chambor lipsticks; their matte ones are to die for. My favourite colour is the matte pink (403) from their Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick range. With a velvety texture, not only is this long lasting but also waterproof.

I’ve always been a big fan of true red lipsticks that scream timeless glamour. When I swatched the Feels So Grand shade by MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor range in store, I knew this was ‘my red’. And it has been my go-to liquid red formulation ever since. Oh, and it doesn’t smudge at all, so it’s kiss-proof for sure.

Resilient Rasin from the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick range is rich and looks super classy. I love experimenting with colour and this is one bold lipstick hue that goes with every ensemble of mine. I only hope it never goes out of stock.

My all time favourite lipstick is Trendsetter from Huda Beauty’s Liquid Matte line. It’s got a silky formula that dries up instantly on application, and will then refuse to smudge. Even the hue is a retro 90s and works perfectly on my skin tone.
