The 11 Best Liquid Lipsticks for Staying Put All Day Long

Lipstick has come a long way since the classic bullet design. Taking its place at the top of the lip game are sleeker, smoother and longer lasting liquid formulas. They're easy to apply, come in matte, gloss and metallic options, and stay in place no matter how many sips you take of your to-go latte.

If you're tired of your lipstick smudging, or rubbing off on your significant other, it's time to make the switch. To help make the transition a breeze, I've selected the best liquid lipsticks on the market. Check out these personal and fan favorites that'll keep your pout looking like perfection!

Kylie Cosmetics Koko K Matte Lip Kit

If we're going to talk liquid lipsticks, I cannot help but mention Kylie Jenner's insanely popular matte lip kits. Love or hate the KarJenner family, the youngest knows how to make a top-notch liquid lipstick formula. The shades are so opaque you get the perfect color swatch with a single swipe. I dare you to try and rub this product off; for a moment I honestly was worried it was permanent the first time I swatched. Kylie's signature lip kits also come with a matching lip liner which saves you time in the shade matching struggle. ($29;
