Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is a favorite amongst most dance moms and is what we currently use.
It is really easy to apply, is not expensive and it works!
They have a few different reds to choose from, but honestly why go past the color specifically called Dancer!
This stuff glides on wet and then drys for a matte finish!
It is virtually smudge-proof once dry, doesn’t bleed and you can use it with or without lip liner.
I have not had to reapply this stuff yet… however that does mean at the end of the day it does take a little bit of extra elbowgrease to wipe off! I like to use Micellar Cleansing Water for waterproof make up by Garnier best, but don’t expect it to come off with the first wipe! There is a reason it has staying power!
I sometimes like to use the precision tip for lining the lips instead of a pencil lip liner!
