Each week, we tune into The Bachelor to feed our inner hopeless romantics. But, if you're a beauty enthusiast, I'm sure you find yourself wondering what the contestants' go-to kiss-proof lipsticks are for date nights — even if you're a minimalist makeup wearer like Ashley Luebke from Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season. Celebrity makeup artist Suzie Moldavon has worked with previous contestants like Lauren Bushnell, JoJo Fletcher, and Becca Tilley. In a previous interview with POPSUGAR, she recommended matte formulas to lock in your lip look before you kiss the night away. Inspired by this pro tip, here are six lipsticks sure to last all night long.
This transfer free, quick-drying formula comes with a recommendation from Moldavon. Don't forget to use a lip scrub before applying this formula so that your matte finish dries to perfection.
2. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip colour ($4)
With a four-star rating on Target's website and a host of colours to choose from, this drugstore beauty buy will not only go the extra mile, but also won't break your budget.
3. The Lip Bar Matte Lipstick in As If ($13)
Pink-nude hues are a staple of the Bachelor girls' beauty routines, so it was only right that we found a pink lip colour that won't budge. There are two more things that make As If a treat — The Lip Bar line is both vegan and cruelty-free.
This full-pigmented formula is a favourite of lipstick-lovers everywhere. With 30 shades and a smooth matte finish, this lipstick will keep your lips hydrated and your lipstick in place.
The Bachelorette's longtime makeup artist Gina Modica revealed that while nothing is kiss-proof, this liquid lipstick was among her favourites to use on Rachel Lindsay because of its long-lasting hydrating formula.
6. MAC Velvetease Lip Pencil ($21)
Though these aren't technically lipsticks, lip pencils are another staple Modica recommended for long-lasting lip wear. These chubby pencils from MAC go on matte and are more like a lipstick than your standard lip pencil.
