7 Kiss-proof lip colors available in your budget

Lipsticks, lip glosses, lip crayons or lip tints, we have tons of options available to make our lips stand out. From wild reds to subtle nudes, from jazzy neons to elegant berry lips, from soft pinks to hot reds, we have tried or want to try them all. The biggest concern about finding the best lip color is the longevity. How long will the lipstick or lip color will last on your lips, once applied tells a lot about its quality. Due to the hassle involved in applying lip color perfectly, and reapplying it when needed, some of us choose to use nude shades or simple tinted lip balms.

Once applied, some lip colors last only for about 30 minutes. Being a girl who loves food and talks a lot, some of the lipstick brands do not last for long, and this is a common concern among us all. We want our lipstick on the lips and not on those coffee cups, water glasses, burgers or sandwiches we enjoy during the day. It is also not possible to visit washroom or take out the vanity mirror to retouch the lip color every time.

If you are in search of the perfect smudge proof, water proof and kiss proof lip color, I have curated 7 top lipstick brands available in India, in your budget, more or less. Hope you enjoy them!

NYX Professional Makeup Full Throttle Lipstick

Rs. 600

If you love matte lipsticks, this is the one for you. Nyx has a wide range of colors with amazing staying power. Also, it doesn't feel heavy on the lips. Gives a smooth finish which can last for hours. Among most of the Nyx lip colors, this is my favorite. The formula goes on thin, almost like a wet gel then dry down to a smudge proof matte. The wear is insane, as the lipsticks dry matte they wear really well, without crusting off like the flat matte liquid lipsticks tend to do. But you may want to add a layer of moisturisation before applying.

L’oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipsticks

Rs. 950

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche are ultra moisturizing lip colours giving a gorgeous velvet matte finish.The unique formula contains jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look. Color payoff is great and stays for a long time approx 4-5 hours with a light meal.

If you are a lover of red lipsticks, L'Oreal Paris Color Riche has a beautiful and vibrant collection of reds. They last for a long times as well so investment in one best statement red lipstick can be this.

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain

Rs. 950

I love Colorbar lip colors and this one is one of my favorites. Colorbar Kiss Proof lip stain is a liquid lip color which is creamy on application and dries down to a matte finish. What I love about this is that it does not make my lips dry which most of the matte finish lip colors tend to do. This No-Transfer Lip stain formula glides on flawlessly and delivers impressively long-lasting, velvety color that will not transfer and stay all day long. Also, it is preservative free!

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lipstick

Rs. 1150
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lipstick gives a bold luscious color. It has a very smooth creamy formula that gives a plump shine to your lips. It stays on for about 10 hours and does not make lips dry or dull. It may take some time to dry down after application, but the color and application pay off is worth it!

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink

Rs. 650

I have tried various matte lip colors including Vivid Matte but they disappointed me. This new Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lip color came with a lot of promises. It claims to give 16 hours of saturated color and is available in 10 super saturated shades, which look really great. I am soon gonna try this!

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

Rs. 590

This was my first long lasting lipstick. I had to use makeup remover to take it off at the end of the day. Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick is smudge proof and stays for almost 8-9 hours with meals in-between. It does not transfer like most of the other long lasting lipsticks. Many time I use it once per day with occasionally needing to freshen up if I'm making evening a night out. It has a velvety soft formula which keeps my lips moisturized but as the day goes on, it becomes a little dry.

Rimmel London Provocalips 16 Hours Kissproof Lip Colour

Rs. 960

Rimmel London Provocalips 16 hr lip color is actually kiss proof. It is all about the formula and the two way application. One side is the color which is has a matte finish and the other side is the top coat, which has a shiny finish.

So you have to, apply the color and keep lips apart for 60 seconds until the product sets. Apply topcoat to lock the colour, moisture and add shine. It is transfer proof, kiss proof, and does not make your lips dry. If you apply it correctly, it stays on all day! The only drawback is that the shine side of the product runs out quicker than the color side due to using it throughout the day.
