14 of the best smudge-proof lipsticks to wear under your face mask

Face masks have become the new accessory in the current times as the world tries to heal from the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to many women choosing not to wearing lipstick since it’s just the eyes that are visible.

However, there are still some women out there who love a pop of colour but there’s always a chance of smudging the lipstick under the mask. Luckily, there are several transfer-proof lip colour options that dry out within a few seconds of applying and refuse to budge with or without a mask.

Here are some of the best mask-proof (non-smudge) lipsticks in the market right now that you would be delighted to add to your makeup kit. The purpose of these lipsticks is no mess, no fuss. And with the current mask situation, that is exactly the need of the hour.
