Featured Image Source

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day! There’s no better time than the “hottest” day of the year to talk about smooching up a storm. But if you’re anything like us, before you pucker up, there might be a momentary panic — will I get my lipstick on them?

Fortunately, transfer-proof lipstick is on the rise for more reasons than one. Yep, we’re talking about face masks, which we’re still wearing everywhere (thanks, Omicron). 

Transfer-proof lipstick is a must-have for Valentine’s Day this year. You can wear your mask while walking into dinner without worrying about smudging, and you can get your smooch on distraction-free. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to choose between wearing lipstick and kissing my husband — and with these, I don’t have to!
