In lieu of Valentine's Day, I consider it my duty to gather up my favorite lipsticks that would be perfect for Valentine's Day for you guys. I also made sure most of them can withstand a good makeout sesh (do people even say "sesh" anymore?) or at least a large pizza. I can assure you, I'll definitely be testing out the latter on Valentine's Day. 😂

It's safe to say Valentine's Day is the day of love - and food...and chocolate. I mean, yeah, every day should be a day you show your loved ones how much you care about them but officially, the 14th is the day. Take my fiance and I for example. We don't normally do many date nights (it just gets crazy trying to plan something) but because it's Valentine's Day, we're taking the time out to do one. It just works for us.

I put a few of my favorite lipsticks to the test to see which ones last under pressure - of the kissing and food variety. Let's see which ones made the cut!

Let's check out the contenders!

  • ColourPop Liquid Lipstick in Arabesque - First up, Arabesque - a gorgeous brown berry matte liquid lipstick. Kiss-proof? ✔ Large pizza approved? ✔, with some fading but Arabesque has some stain to it, so it wasn't horrible.
  • ColourPop Liquid Lipstick in Fragile Things - Fragile Things is a dusty plum brown matte from ColourPop's holiday collection but definitely works with a vampy Valentine's Day look as well. Kiss-proof? ✔ Large pizza approved? ✔
  • ColourPop Lippie Stix in Trust Me... - One of my absolute favorite matte reds. The Matte X formula from ColourPop is straight from the heavens. But is it kiss-proof? If you're talking quick pecks, than yes. If you're talking more, than unfortunately, no. Large pizza approved? No. But I love it anyway!
  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bachelorette - If you're looking for more fire than va-va-voom, Bachelorette is the pinky-red shade of your dreams! Kiss-proof? ✔ Pizza-proof? ✔
  • Lime Crime Matte Velvetine Liquid Lipstick in Pink Velvet ($20) - Looking for a hot pink matte? Look no further! Pink Velvet is pretty damn pink, ya'll. But is it kiss-proof? ✔ but with some slight wear around the lips. Pizza-proof? ✔ but you may need a slight touch-up afterward.
  • ColourPop Liquid Lipstick in Bad Habit - If you're feeling "berry" bad (I'll see my way out), Bad Habit is exactly what you're looking for. Kiss-proof? ✔ Pizza-proof? ✔
  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick - Looking for something more sweet and demure? Lovesick is one of my favorite pinks ever! With Kat Von D, your lipstick isn't budging which is why this is both kiss-proof AND pizza-proof with no issues.
  • The Beauty Crop Liquid Lipstick in Greige Expectations ($14.95) - Lastly, we have Greige Expectations which is the most stunning lilac-y pink shade. Kiss-proof? ✔ Pizza-proof? ✔
