Our Beauty Writer-Approved List Of Long-Lasting "Tattoo" Tints And Liners

But no, not literally a tattoo.

Whether lip tints, eyeliners or mascaras, we swear by makeup products that last without budging — panda eyes, smudged eyebrows and base makeup that fades off by midday are huge no-nos for us. While there are tons of products that claim to be water and sweat-proof as well as long-lasting, there’s a whole new crop of products that not only claim to last through the day, but also stain your skin so that it won’t come off no matter the condition.

These products tend to have the word ‘tattoo’ in their name (some may brand it a marketing spiel, but  we’ve come across products that do live up to the name) and have strong, powerful and long-wearing formulas that stay on your face all day. And don’t worry, unlike actual tattoos, these come off with proper cleansing and do not stay on permanently. Bonus: some even contain a slew of skin-loving ingredients to nourish and protect your complexion. Above, we pick out the products you need to get.

#1: Laneige Tattoo Lip Tint, $32
Designed with a similar concept to that of a tattoo, this budge-proof lip tint comes in 10 different shades and contains tint-saturated water particles for awesome colour payoff. It is also said to be non-drying and feels weightless on your puckers. #2: Dior Addict Lip Tattoo, $46
Said to offer a staying power of ten hours and a transfer-proof formula, this lightweight lippie melts into your puckers to give a natural and sheer finish. #3: Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge, $50
Its creamy formula and vibrant colour pigments are also key features to note thanks to a polymer, which when combined with a plant oil, offers deep hydration and lasts for a reported 12 hours. #4: Kat Von D Beauty Dagger Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $32, Sephora
The precision tip features a 30-degree slant for comfortable use for both pros and beginners alike while the formula is heavily saturated with waterproof ingredients for long-lasting wear. #5: K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Eyebrow Tint, $23.90
If you can’t commit to a micro-blading procedure, opt for temporary eyebrow tints. The brush is inspired by the art of traditional brush craftsmanship in the Kumano prefecture in Japan for precise and swift application while the formula contains hyaluronic acid and swertia japonica extract to nourish. #6: K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Cheek Tint, $19.90
This comes in a creamy formula that blends seamlessly, leaving a non-streaky powder finish that does not feel sticky thanks to a unique blend of ingredients such as plant-derived squalene, water-soluble collagen and sodium hyaluronate. Main image: Showbit.com
