No matter what you eat, drink, or toast to this summer, these ModelCo lipsticks will last.
My least favorite thing about lipstick? People never realize I’m wearing any since it fades on my lips faster than a bad spray tan. And while dolling myself up for a summer night out is all part of the fun, the rigors of socializing are my lip color’s enemy. It goes like this: I swipe it on, and proceed to smear it all over a cocktail napkin. I swipe it on again, sip a dark and stormy, and watch my shade disappear faster than my drink. Even the boldest, most showgirl-worthy hues start to fade to a pale pink if I’m not reapplying every half hour.
Which is why I’m so pumped for ModelCo’s line of Party Proof Lipsticks, which some subscribers will be receiving in their July Birchboxes! The chic Australian brand is bringing two exclusivelipstrick trios—offered for the first time in the US!—exclusively to the Birchbox Shop. Of the six gorgeous shades we’re carrying, subscribers could receive either of these two in their box: Peony, a bright pink, or Get Naked, a warm nude. These semi-matte shades are designed to deliver vivid pigment that won’t wimp out on you. Here’s the whole lineup, with the Classics trio on the left and the Neutrals trio on the right:

My personal favorite is Kitty. Like all of the shades, it has a tart, fruity scent that I love. Plus, it’s also very creamy when applied. I gave the lipsticks a test run one night last week, and no matter how much I tried I couldn’t get this shade to fade over the course the evening—not even after singing some relatively awful karaoke in the wee hours.
Do you have a lipstick you love that stands up to the party test?
