Summertime means beach trips, BBQs, and cold poolside popsicles. Obviously, we love this Pinterest-worthy season, but all the best things about summer seem to spell trouble for our lips. Picture this: you’ve painted your pucker just the way you like it, only to have your work undone by a frozen marg. (Ugh, traitor!)
Thankfully, budge-proof lipsticks are a dime a dozen these days, which means you never have to deal with disappearing color again. Make like a smart girl and switch out your everyday lippie for one that’ll stay on through spit, sweat, and several Bellinis. There’s a ton to wade through, so we’ll start you off with 7 of our favorites! In their most summer-ready shades, these long-wearing tubes deserve a spot in your tote.
