Luxury Mask-proof Lipsticks To Shop This Christmas


Best Luxury Transfer-proof Lipsticks That Will Last Through Winter

Wearing a face mask has been the new normal for nearly three years now, usually resulting in making the tough call between dolling up our masks more than our faces, or forgoing lower-face make-up altogether.

For those of you who miss busting out a fiery lip colour as the winter season approaches, don’t worry. The Beat Asia has collated our favourite picks for luxury transfer-proof lippies for an unapologetic lip look – even while wearing a mask. These lipsticks range from matte to cream-suede finishes and could also double up as a thoughtful gift for the lipstick lover in your life.

Rouge Allure’s vibrant red is veiled in a glamourous frosted glass tube, subduing the sheen of the densely pigmented formula at first glance. Once it glides on, the liquid matte formula boasts an intense colour payoff without compromising on longevity.

Made with jojoba oil, sappan wood, and Vitamin E derivatives, you can rest assured that your lips will stay looking and feeling hydrated for hours on end.
