Red lips are the sexiest beauty weapon to have for any hot dates. But while you’re mots definitely looking forward to that kiss, you are also worried about leaving behind embarrassing smooch prints all over his mouth (and face). Even if you’re not wearing red lipstick, you don’t want to have to worry about your lipstick coming off or being smudged halfway through a passionate kiss.

The best way to get your lippie to last all night without having to dash to the bathroom for a quick touch-up is to switch your regular lipstick to liquid lipsticks. The new gen lipstick hybrids aka liquid lipsticks are the best thing ever. Here’s why: They are matte with serious staying power yet delivers lip-pleasing textures (not chalky), highly pigmented, so that even with just one coat, you’ll be able to get the colour you desire, and lastly, you don’t need to do that apply-tissue off-reapply trick of getting your lipstick to last. Here are 16 of my all-time faves.
