Why not pucker up to these long-wear, foolproof formulas with our collection of UK health and beauty vouchers? You could stock up on the best lipsticks for International Kissing Day with your beauty budget intact. No budging, no smudging, no stress!Best liquid lipstick
Draw attention to your lips with a highly pigmented liquid formula that won’t wear off with your next cup of tea. As a general rule, liquid lippies last longer than regular lipstick, with the pay-off being they have a tendency to make your smackers drier than the Sahara. Fortunately, tattoo queen and beauty guru, Kat Von D, has addressed this sorry situation with her Everlasting liquid Lipstick collection, available in 26 shades from Debenhams. With minimal scent, plenty of pigmentation and a non-drying formula, you can be proud of your precisely painted pout for a solid eight hours or more.
Best matte lipstick
Glossy lips might be making a comeback but a long-lasting matte lipstick is an essential addition to any beauty queen’s make-up bag. Give your lips a velvety look with the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour from SpaceNK and enjoy the feel of a formula enriched with sumptuous mango butter that will keep your lips soft, kissable and sensational all day. You’ll find you won’t need to reapply this one for hours - instead, simply press your lips together to refresh the colour and keep your pout looking on point.
Best nude lipstick
The number one lip shade to nail that everyday look, a dreamy nude colour will have you looking on-trend on any occasion. The best nude lipsticks are matte enough not to slide off your face but will lock-in moisture for a healthy, hydrated look. Our favourite is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Pillow Talk lippie, a firm favourite of celebrities, supermodels and LA scenesters, thanks to its pink-nude hues and 3D glowing pigments that promote a plumper appearance. Grab yours from Feelunique before it (yet again) sells out!
Best red lipstick
Last but not least, we have a classic red for your Cupid’s bow. A bold lip is the perfect accessory to any outfit, and you can’t get more iconic than a dramatic, vampy red. Apply a slick of nourishing colour to your lips with bareMinerals barepro Longwear Lipstick, a refreshing gel formula that provides smudge-proof, full coverage make-up that’s designed to go the distance. Available from lookfantastic in a range of eye-catching shades, whether you prefer a classy, cherry-red look or a deep berry hue, you’re bound to find something to suit.
With health and beauty discounts from all your favourite brands in one place, you’ll have no problem finding the best lipsticks for smudge-proof smooching, not only on International Kissing Day but at any time of the year.
