The Kissproof Lip Battle

kissproof lip products review

With lipstick on, my lips are a hazard zone to David and he will openly state that '[I'm] not getting kissed'. Sometimes I fool him with an MLBB but I give up the game when I'm swiping at his cheeks trying to remove color from his ass-pale skin. 

Though we don't openly mash faces in public ('cause we are decent people), it would be nice to give him a peck on the cheek or lips without leaving evidence behind. Much like the Cheek and Lip Product Battle, I've tested products and have been making out with my hand (so sexy) to give you guys the low-down. I wish I could for realz make out but...David's on the other side of the country.

Each lip product was left on for 30 mins, lightly kissed once onto one hand, then kissed, uh...'rigourously' onto the other (for those intense makeout sessions, you crazy lovebirds). We are looking for something that doesn't leave a trace and won't look super patchy afterwards. A final photo shows how you look after a more 'intense' kissing session and if touchups are necessary.

Hard Candy All Glossed Up - Mauveous
Passible as kissproof but some of the balm transfers. The transfer seems to be same regardless of light or heavy go ahead, have at it.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick - Icon
This is a bit tacky upon application. It becomes less tacky over time but even after 30 mins, you could feel the tackiness. Great opaque color in general but not kiss proof. Boyfriends, avoid!

L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolor Compact - 110 Hibiscus*
With just step 1, the color is almost tattooed after 2mins before applying the gloss in step 2. No transfer for light kiss only some flecks of lipstick for heavy kissing BUT... fleck are hard to rub off. You get a real kissproof product if you applied an even thin layer and everything has set.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Addis Ababa
These dried down very well. With intense matte color, you have a great light kissproof product here. However you will lose some of your outer lip color after slightly more intense kissing.

OCC Liptar - NSFW
The packaging makes application with a lip brush 100% necessary so reapplication isn't even something you can do on the fly. Color was still moveable after 30 mins and hadn't set all that much even with as thin an application as I could attempt.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Fiery*
When I put this liquid lipstick on, I thought I was in for another OCC and Hourglass result. I was only half wrong. The vanilla scent is actually quite nice and it set so much faster than the other liquid lipsticks in this group.

Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Tint - 02
This product is quite staining and started to feels very slightly drying after a while. A good option but not nearly as strong performing as the NYX Soft Mattes as far as kissproofing goes. There's still lots of even color left over afterwards.

YSL Glossy Stain - 13
I applied two coats for that medium between the 1 and 3 coats that YSL suggests. The SA told me this was transfer resistant when I was in stores. Lies! It also don't sit as well on the lips as I would like, especially for the price.

Light KissproofHeavy KissproofAfter Wear
Hard CandyEffectively yes, maybe some light evidence. This sits somewhere between NYX and Tony Moly.Effectively yes. You get the same amount of transfer (not much) for light or heavy kissing. Extra points for that.Even wear, Stain left is even. You might not have to reapply.
Hourglass Opaque RougeNope. Transfer is evident. NO WAY! Photo says everything.Light kissing: reapplication is not necessary. Heavy kissing: Lipstick is smeared over lip line. It won't be about reapplication, but cleaning yourself up, you naughty girl.
L'Oreal InfallibleYESYESNo touch up necessary. Maybe the clear gloss if you feel like it.
NYX Soft MatteEffectively yes, maybe some very light evidence but not a lotSort of, outer lip ring visible on hand after.Outer perimeter of lips are slightly faded. I personally wouldn't bother reapplying but I'm also lazy.
OCC LiptarNope. Not even close.NO WAY! Photo says everything.I even felt like I ate some during the Heavy Kissing experiment. Some ended up on my teeth. Lots of color still left on the lips though but you're going to have to clean up unless you want clown lips.
Stila Stay All DayEffectively yes, very light evidence. It looks a lot worse in the photos that it actually is. Barely present, a little less than the NYX.Nope, a lot lighter evidence than the other liquid lipstick options though.Even wear but some lightening on the top lips. Don't go to crazy but for wear, you're pretty safe with some solid kisses. You'll be ok. He'll have to wipe his face.
Tony Moly Cat ChuMaybe, a little less kissproof than the NYX.Nope, got some color left over on the hand.Even wear, reapplication not necessary.
YSL Glossy StainNopeNope, glossiness everywhere. Even if the color doesn't bother him, the sticky substance on his face will.Even wear. Heavy Kissing: some lip color smearing but not as intensly as the Hourglas or the OCC. It's mostly the gloss and not the color that's moving. Reapplication might not be necessary. Clean up isn't too bad.

Winner: L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Compact.
Mentions for Light Kisses Only: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick.

Thanks to Jen who lent some of these to me!
