Snacks, drinks, sweets, partying—repeat. That's the name of the game during holiday season. From now until New Year's Eve, our social calendars will be booked up with happy hours, work parties, dinners, and the like. And although we'll be keeping our eyes open for party shoes that don't kill, what we really need is a lipstick that lasts until the last piece of pie or last glass of bubbly, whichever comes first. And we think we may have found just that.
Smashbox's Always On Liquid Lipstick is a liquid formula that boasts a wear time of eight hours. And although the long-wearing lipstick has been around for a while, it just recently wiggled its way back into our lipstick rotation thanks to an expansion of shades and launch of their electric metallic mattes.
The 24 fresh shades and new metallic finish still have the same suede-like finish that doesn't bleed and lasts through hour after hour of eating, drinking, and talking. We're personally eyeing those new metallics for their reflective chrome finish that dries matte for a velvet pout that's perfect for the holidays.
And if you're wondering if these lippies really last? Yep, they do. We put the a new Metallic Matte in rose gold (XO, Vlada specifically) through the ringer. Through a latte, Caesar salad, a mid-afternoon candy break, a video rehearsal, and a pretty solid head-in-the-hands moment where we may have forgotten we had makeup on for a hot minute, our lipstick remained. In fact, we totally forgot about it until a fellow coworker commented on its shine, causing us to realize this might be the lipstick we've been waiting for.
Thanksgiving dinner and office holiday party—come at us! We're armed and ready.
