A year into the pandemic, face masks have become part of everyday life with many of us having to give up wearing lipsticks (*cue gasp*) and focus on beautifying our eyes instead. Be it a high-performance mascara, eyeliner or a premium lash extension appointment, there are plenty of ways to make your eyes pop for a statement-making look while wearing a mask.
But there’s something inherently magical and satisfying about swiping on a coat of lipstick to bring a touch of colour to the lips. It’s a joy-sparking make-up ritual that can give any woman an instant confidence boost and make them feel good even in the darkest days of the pandemic, even if no one can see it. Well, not until we whip off our masks of course.
With so many types of lipsticks available in the market, it can get pretty tricky to pick the right ones that fit well into today’s mask-wearing situation. That’s why we’ve done the legwork for you and compiled a list of the best long-lasting, smudge-proof lipsticks that will stay put under a face mask. You won't want to miss out on this.
1. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro
Long before matte lipsticks were an absolute beauty trend, this liquid lipstick was already a game-changer. Not only does it dry smoothly on the lips, but the formula is also extremely comfortable for long wear and will not budge under your face mask. If you need just one lip product with you on the go during the pandemic, the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro should do the trick. For a vibrant and bold look, go for the iconic shade, 400 The Red—a fiery red that will surely turn heads and bring on the compliments.
Available at Armani beauty stores at Ion Orchard, Isetan Scotts, Tangs at Tangs Plaza and through Armani's phone delivery platform here.
