You already know that applying lip liner — whether on its own or underneath lipstick — is the key to a long-lasting lip. But you can step things up even further with a waterproof lip liner. The best waterproof lip liners will, obviously, be labelled as waterproof (read the fine print: if it says it's water-resistant, that's not the same thing). But with these types of long-wearing formulas, it's especially important to seek out lip liners that contain moisturizing ingredients, such as jojoba oil or vitamin E, which will help keep the product from flaking and prevent your lips from feeling chapped.
Ahead, you'll find five of the best waterproof lip liners that are truly budge-proof; I'm talking about lasting through swimming, workouts, mealtimes, or all three in one day. All of them work wonderfully on their own — whether you're using them in classic lip liner fashion, on the edges of your lips only, or all over your lips as lipstick — but you can also apply them as a base for your lipstick if you want to extend your wear-time even longer.
