After spending years searching for a glossy lipstick that lasts and doesn’t create a mess, we’ve finally resigned to what we’ve accepted as fact: gloss equals transfer.
But while the rest of us have given in to our glossy pouts’ sticky fate, one celebrity cosmetics brand kept fighting the fight, broke all the rules, and created the first-ever non-transfer… yes, glossy lipstick.
Lady Gaga’s makeup brand, Haus Labs, just launched the Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer at the end of July this year, and the glossy lipsticks have already taken TikTok by an atomic storm.
@HausLabs !!! WHAT THE HECK I NEED THIS IN NUDE TOO! Red glossy lips that don’t transfer…. Catch me in this all holoday season!!! #notransfer #redlips #hauslabs #liplaquer #redlipstickchallenge #kissprooflips
Haus Labs Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer boasts everything you would expect in a glossy lippie high-shine, super glossy finish, intense colour, and much more.
The shine-granting lipstick is also totally transfer-proof and is supposed to last throughout the day with zero need for reapplying.
If you want proof of this lacquer lipstick’s transfer-proof powers, just look to TikTok’s biggest beauty creators like @nikkietutorials and @mikaylanogueira, who have posted their reactions to Haus Labs’ newest creations.
In her TikTok video, Mikayla Nogueira (@mikaylanogueira) picked out the Haus Labs Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer in shade Cherry Shine, whilst marvelling, “Does the packaging remind anyone else of REM Beauty?”
Shaking the thick tube of liquid lipstick, she then applied it to her lips. At the very first swipe, we were already impressed by how the lipstick gave a beautiful, fiery orange-red hue and a lacquer-like shine.
Since the instructions are to allow the product to dry for 10 to 15 seconds, Mikayla kept a portable fan pointed at her still-parted lips.
The final shot? She kissed the back of her hand, hard. Her expression of complete disbelief and clean lipstick–free hand, is all the proof you need that the Haus Labs Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer is the glossy lipstick that’s truly, unbelievably, transfer-free.
Replying to @marylibra9 @hauslabs lip lacquer is officially kiss proof @ladygaga thank you for these amazing glossy lipsticks #hauslabs
If you’re a sucker for luxe lipstick packaging, then you should also know that the Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer is housed in a weighty transparent tube that feels expensive to the touch.
How you’re supposed to use the lipstick is to first shake it – the metal bead inside the tube should click and mix the formula – and apply an even layer to the lips without pressing the lips together.
You should also keep your lips parted and allow the liquid lipstick to dry for 15 seconds and form a “shine shield” before you get to marvel at your non-tacky supple, glossy pout.
The Haus Labs Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer comes in four intense, vivid hues: Ruby Shine, Cherry Shine, Red Coral Shine, and Rose Shine. These are deep wine red, bright cherry red, bright orange-red, and rustic rose pink.
BRB, we’re going to buy these transfer-proof glossy liquid lipsticks that are going down in history.
The Haus Labs Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer retails at S$39.23 on Haus Labs. International standard shipping costs S$12.95, and it will take up to 15 business days for your high-shine lipsticks to arrive.
