Editor Picks: A Lasting Kiss

February 9, 2014

A Lasting Kiss


Excited about that perfect kiss but afraid of smearing your lipstick all over him? These four picks are the Editor’s favorite!

1. Lip Tar by OCC- $18 at Sephora
Great thick consistency, lasts for ours and creates a juicy pout!
2. Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable- $8.99 at drugstores
This is their Just Bitten counterpart. This provides an easier, smoother application. The hues are soft and beautiful providing lasting color!
3. Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid- $20 at Sephora
OMG. This is hands-down my favorite lasting lipstick. The pigment is out of this world and it has MAJOR staying power! Amazing!
4. Benefit’s PosieTint- $30 at Ulta/Sephora
The application isn’t as easy as others, but we love the flushed stain it provides for not only lips, but cheeks! We love the fragrance, too!
