The Only 4 Long-Lasting Liquid Lipsticks You Need for the Holiday Season

As an avid lipstick-wearer, I’m always on the hunt for brands that deliver on their promises. And while I’ve had some success on this front, I often find myself annoyed that the so-called "long-lasting" formulas I willingly buy into all but vanish after a sip or two of coffee. READ: Emmy-Winning Makeup Artist Reveals 5 Ways to Make Lipstick Last Now that holiday the season is approaching, I’m not messing around when it comes to my makeup, so I enlisted the big guns — my equally beauty-obsessed colleagues — to weigh in honestly about their absolute favorite no-budge lip colors. Ahead, the four best long-lasting lipsticks StyleCaster editors swear by:





    NYX Cosmetics Lip Lustre Glossy Lip Tint in Ruby Couture "This liquid lipstick is a mix between a gloss and a lipstick, giving it a semi-matte finish with a whole bunch of staying power. I can get through a breakfast and a lunch without this stuff fading or leaving a weird ring around my lips. It’s one of my favorite drugstore liquid lipsticks!" — Chloe Metzger, Beauty Editor $7 at /


    Anastasia Liquid Lipstick "Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is the GOAT. It has the richest pigment and lasts for hours, even on days when you have five cups of green tea, Chipotle for lunch, and several cocktails at dinner. (Not that I know that from experience or anything.) It comes in several nude shades and a bunch of bold colors. My personal favorite is the retro red dubbed "Heathers.'" — Leah Faye Cooper, Editorial Producer $20 at /


    Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Always Red "My signature is a siren-red lip, but I am never without a beverage in hand and have a lot of lip square footage, so I find myself having to reapply constantly. A few years ago after having tried an absurd amount of different long-lasting lip colors to no avail, my friend turned me on to this little guy from Sephora, and since then I have gone through countless tubes. It’s easy to apply and truly stays put all day and all night through champagne, inclement weather, and several games of spin the bottle." — Christina Grasso, Social Media Manager $14 at /


    Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Coral Pink "Stila’s liquid lipstick stays on forever. I have it in a very bright pink (a color I’d usually worry about getting on my clothes), and can put it on at the beginning of the day or a long night and never worry that it’s going to be awkwardly half-smudged off a few hours later." — Hilary George-Parkin, Fashion Editor $24 at /
