Your No-Fail Guide to Becoming a Lipstick Person – Racked National
Racked National: Chelsea Moylan, owner of Anomie: “I have a select few lipsticks that I term my “drunk lipsticks”—they are my warriors that will stay on through drinks, dinner, dancing, and whatever else I happen to get into while out on the town with zero worry and and maybe one touchup, if that. Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge (this basically won’t come off until you scrub your lips with a Brillo pad the next day, so beware) and Nars Velvet Matte lip pencils and Semi-Matte lipsticks will all last you through a bottle of Chardonnay or a terrible case of food poisoning (I have tested this on several occasions, though not intentionally). Basically, go matte or go home…with terribly faded lipstick.”
And what about kissing?
Julia: “When you’re on stage, you often have to kiss someone without leaving their mouth looking like a crime scene, so I gravitate towards stains. Apply your stain, wait for it to dry, and then apply gloss as much as you’d like to keep it fresh.”
Emily: “If you know ahead of time you’re going to be making out, prepare! Wear a neutral color or non-sticky balm, like Burt’s Bees Kissable Color (it’s nice and minty, too!). If you’re dying to have red lips, coat them in a waterproof liner or a lip stain and forego actual lipstick. If the kisses are unplanned—and those are the best kind—then wear whatever you want! Any person lucky enough to make out with you won’t complain about getting a little Rouge Dior on their face.”
Chelsea: “I’m not a big kisser when I’ve got lipstick on, but Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge would probably be the only lip product that could outlive a mistletoe makeout session.”
