6 Lip Products That'll Stay Vibrant Throughout Thanksgiving Dinner


The month of November ends with every foodie’s fave holiday—Thanksgiving! Get ready for turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie and so many other delicious dishes shared among friends and family.

No matter what you’ll be eating this year, your makeup routine doesn’t have to change because of the big Thanksgiving meal. We’ve rounded up six lip products that will stay in place in between every course and every laugh you share with your loved ones.

Makeup Forever Aqua Rouge($24)

A favorite among makeup artists and beauty bloggers such as Rachel Whitehurst, this liquid lipstick is completely durable and super vibrant. The line includes a fire-engine red, rich berry shades and elegant nudes, among others.

This duo-ended product includes a bold color of your choice, as well as a clear gloss to give your look extra staying power. Begin by applying the color to your lips, and then wait a minute to allow the color to dry on your lips—you’ll feel it working! Then, apply the clear gloss for a shiny finish.

Her Campus Recommends: “Raspberry” (Shade 10)

Benefit Benetint($30)


There's nothing like a lip stain to bring a wash of color to your lips—and one that has an incredible amount of staying power, too. Kind of like a mini dye for your lips, this one from Benefit is a pretty, rosy pink that's universally flattering and even better, won't budge an inch even as you're indulging in pie or takinga swig of sparkling cider. Paint a few drops onto dry lips and blend with your finger (quickly, before the formula dries). Allow the stain to dry, and repeat the process to reach your desired shade, and then top it off with a clear balm or gloss, or even a similarly-colored lipstick for extra oomph.

Her Campus recommends: The Original Benetint

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain($9.50)

This drugstore pick is intensely moisturizing while offering a subtle tint. Its container is a retractable crayon, but no sharpener is required to get softer, smoother lips. If you don’t want your lips to take center stage but also want them to have some color, this is the perfect product for you.

It’s super easy to apply, too. There’s no need to exfoliate lips prior to application—simply apply it like you would you favorite lip balm and let it go to work.

Her Campus Recommends: “Romantic”

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick ($22)

This liquid lipstick is extremely pigmented, which is perfect for the collegiette looking to make a bold statement this season. Since it’s enriched with vitamin E and avocado oils, it’s anything but drying.

The formula itself feels lightweight but offers six hours of perfect, continuous color. Pucker up and apply straight from the applicator after exfoliating dead skin from lips with a lip scrub or damp washcloth.

Her Campus Recommends: “Beso” (Shade 10)

MAC Lipstick($16)

Since lipstick is what made MAC famous as a brand, you better believe that their lip products are on point. With finishes ranging from shiny to shimmery to matte, there’s a color and style for every collegiette.

After exfoliating lips, apply your chosen color either straight from the tube or with a lipstick brush for a more defined look. For additional lasting coverage, blot lips with a tissue, then apply a translucent powder over the tissue, which will lock in your color without applying powder directly to your lips.

Her Campus Recommends: “Ruby Woo” and “Fanfare”

Sephora Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color($16)

Another liquid lipstick takes the cake among our list of long-lasting and amazing products. The 12 colors in this collection are lightweight and mega moisturizing, so you don’t have to worry about your lips cracking or drying out.

Every finish in this collection is matte, which is a super trendy look for the fall and winter. Apply directly to lips after exfoliating with the easy-to-use applicator, and let the rose hip seed oil hydrate your lips to perfection.

Her Campus Recommends: “Mulberry”

All six of these lip colors will last you through Thanksgiving dinner and beyond (without the need for reapplication)! Which ones will you be sporting at the dinner table this year, collegiettes?
