This Smooch-Proof Lipstick Look Won't Budge

As much as we love it, our favorite bold lipstick can read like a giant "proceed with caution" sign to potential love interests. After all, who wants to end up unintentionally wearing lipstick after even the most G-rated peck?

So, in an effort to extend an olive branch to the SOs of beauty lovers everywhere, we called in makeup pro James Vincent. Armed with a few potent products, he gave Alex, our associate sales development manager, a lip with serious staying power. It's a bold, beautiful, and — most importantly — kiss-proof look we can't wait to rock on date night.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi, $25, available at Sephora; Alcone Enduring Lip Color in Cupcake, $18, available at Alcone; Alcone Lip Chic Lipstick Sealer, $18.50, available at Alcone.
