The 9 Best Kiss-Proof Lipsticks for NYE and Beyond

When it comes to finding the best long-lasting lipstick, surely the ultimate test for that is Christmas. What with all that eating and drinking (and drinking some more), it's too much hassle to keep nipping to the loo for another application. But the one evening you really want your lippie to stay put? New Year's Eve, of course. Seeing as we've tried many a lipstick and the fact that this beauty editor has at least five lipsticks in her handbag at any one time (seriously, sometimes there's more—it's becoming something of a problem), here's a quick rundown of the best long-lasting lipsticks out there.

Whether you're on the hunt for a bold red or a deep plum, there are plenty of pencils, stains and traditional lipsticks that won't rub off on your first glass of champagne. The best bit is you don't have to spend loads, either (festive period equals no money), as even some affordable ones can be just as long-lasting. Keep scrolling for our definitive guide to the best long-lasting lipsticks that will keep you looking fresh all NYE and ready to pucker up at midnight.
