Because I don't wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis, I need to be certain that the few products I do use can last the day, especially my lipstick. Because who has the time to correct smudged and discoloured lips five times a day? Certainly not moi. That's why I appreciate a nice waterproof, long-lasting lipstick.
Waterproof may sound drying, flaky, and all-around excessive, but trust me when I say that the right formula is incredibly amazing. And, because testing a bazillion products and then writing about my actual favourites is a big part of my job, here are my top 10 (yes, ten!) waterproof, budge-proof lipsticks that are guaranteed to last all day.
Now is the moment to dress up your gorgeous pout with a waterproof liquid lipstick that will cling to your lips like nothing else. As a result, we've selected a few of the best waterproof matte lipsticks to get you started. Pick your favourite.

Are there any side effects of using waterproof lipsticks?
You should be alright unless you have an allergy to any of the ingredients. If you use some of them too frequently, your lips may develop raised, red lumps. But the vitamin E in this range will moisturise your lips before it dries into a matte texture. Always wear a decent, neutral lip balm before applying the lipstick or a good lip mask before going to bed because long-lasting lipsticks and stains can be rather drying for your lips.
Are waterproof lipsticks durable? How long do they last?
Yes, waterproof lipsticks are long-lasting and stay put for up to 8 to 10 hours before you need to apply another layer on your lips.
Are all lipsticks waterproof?
Yes. All lipsticks in the ‘Ultimatte Long-Stay’ range are highly pigmented, kiss-proof and waterproof liquid lipsticks that apply like a lip balm but dry to a matte finish.
