Thanksgiving isn’t known for being a lipstick-friendly holiday. But if you’re like us and can’t go a day without your favorite shade, a day of gluttony isn’t going to stand in the way of swiping a bullet on. Thanks to a set of stay-all-day lipsticks, it is possible to have your third helping of turkey and gravy and a killer lip color, too. Not only will your petty cousin be jealous of your perfectly painted lip, you’ll also avoid your uncle Snapchatting your runny lipstick that’s made its way down to your chin. We’ve rounded up the best long-wearing lipsticks that will hold up throughout your Thanksgiving feast.
1. NYX Full Throttle Lipsticks In Trickster
This trendy purple shade is waterproof which makes it wine-proof by default.
NYX | $7
2. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil In Belle De Jour
The only thing drier than your quirky uncle’s bad after-dinner jokes: Your lips from using a pencil. Although this NARS matte finish pencil will hold up throughout the entire holiday, it’s enriched with emollients that keep lips hydrated and smooth.
Nars | $26
3. Stila Stay All Day Matte'ificent Lipstick In Jolie
A full coverage lipstick that won’t melt off when you’re stuffing your face with turkey soaked in mom’s infamous gravy? Yup, this Stila tube is the real deal. It’s also loaded with ulta-moisturizing argan and castor oil and vitamin E.

4. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick In Bad Blood
We didn't think it was possible to meet a lipstick that was stronger than our love of apple crisp, but Urban Decay's tube has proved us wrong. If you can't part with your go-to classic red lip for one day of feasting, this rich crimson shade will stay on your lips throughout every dinner course, even dessert.
Urban Decay | $17
5. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick In Beetroot
Your family will be impressed by your fearlessness for choosing a dark plum lip shade for a holiday feast, so make sure you swipe on a bullet that won't smudge as you're deep into the stuffing.

Bite | $26
6. Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick In Melted Nude
A worn-off nude lip may be slightly less obvious than a bold shade, but that doesn't mean you won't stress over whether it needs a touch up mid-dinner. Your solution: Too Faced's doe-foot applicator makes precise application simple and its formula packs major staying power.
Too Faced | $21
7. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick In Birkin Brown
If anyone understands the importance of a perfectly painted lip no matter how big the dinner menu, it’s Charlotte Tilbury, the queen of all things glam. Swipe on this rusty brown shade as a fall-festive alternative to your peachy nude.
Charlotte Tilbury | $32
8. Hourglass Opaque Rouge Lipstick In Muse
Not quite red, not quite orange, this lovely coral liquid lipstick may glide on like a gloss, but it dries into a matte finish that will stay put through a slice of pumpkin pie—or two.
Hourglass | $28
