    19 Makeup Products That Won't Budge No Matter What

    Put an end to running, creasing, and melting makeup NOW!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer to smoothly correct, cover, hydrate, and highlight your undereye with a natural crease-free finish.


    I personally use this concealer (in the Amande shade) every single day! Take it from me — it's definitely as creamy as advertised. No need to add water to your beauty sponge with this one. This concealer is moist, smooth, and doesn't crack throughout the day. It even stays put (without setting spray) while I'm sweating, running to the NYC subway. I like to apply the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer with my Origin's GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream (which has an amazing brightening and de-puffing formula) to give a little extra radiance and illumination under my eye.

    This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates!

    Get it from Sephora for $30 (available in 10+ colors and three mini size colors).

    2. Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint with a weightless matte finish that'll stay put whether you're eating lunch or even making out — trust me you will not have to reapply this one!


    Promising review: "Wore this amazing lip paint for 13 hours, with no touch-ups, and I could’ve kept going. I had three meals (including Thanksgiving), loads of drinks, and IT STAYED ON. One dip gets you enough product for several applications. I can’t quite describe how it goes on but I’ll try. It’s like painting a canvas, except the canvas is your lips. You only need one layer/swipe and you have full opacity. The applicator has a flat side that can be flipped to an edge to get a sharper line/more precise application. It's worth every penny and it looks good on every skin tone." —MsKMJ

    Get it from Sephora for $24 (available in four colors)

    3. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner to stay put through rain, sweat, or tears.


    This product is cruelty-free. Read a BuzzFeeder’s review of this eyeliner!

    Promising review: "This eyeliner is seriously amazing. This is my go-to eyeliner and it never fails. I have very oily eyelids and even without primer this eyeliner never smudges. It is the perfect shade of black. The formula is really good too. Once it dries, it stays there. I have a habit of rubbing my eyes and even when I do, the eyeliner didn't even budge. I cried and slept through this and the eyeliner looks as if I just put it on." —SweetandSour114

    Get it from Sephora for $20 (available in two colors).

    Mac Cosmetics UK

    Promising review: "It stays put, is buildable, and blends well!" —Jojo

    Get it from Ulta $36 (available in nine shades).

    5. L'Oréal Paris Makeup Voluminous Lash Paradise — a waterproof mascara with long-lasting volume that'll never fade.


    Promising review: "This is possibly the best mascara I have ever used. Minimal clumping and smooth application. I usually apply several layers of mascara but only need one layer for day-to-day and for really bombshell glam lashes two coats are absolutely perfect. The mascara lasts all and still looked good after a 9-hour workday. I will be buying this again and have already recommended to friends and my teen daughters." —Bubbles76

    Get it from Amazon for $8.52 (available in eight colors and five sizes).

    6. Benefit ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Eyebrow to shape, fill, and define your brows all day.


    Promising review: "I bought the smaller one and I'm just so impressed with how long this product is lasting me. It goes on smooth, doesn't clump, and stays all day. I love the tiny brush it comes with, it creates a really good definition but is softer looking and not so bold and harsh — which is the exact eyebrow look I go for. Definitely buying this again." —Katey

    Get it from Ulta for $12 (available in eight colors).

    7. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick — it's enriched with vitamin E and avocado oil so it smoothly applies and won't smear throughout the day.


    This product was formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates!

    Promising review: Today is my first day wearing this product and I have to give it a full five stars! I first put it on at 5 a.m. and before coming to work and I have yet to reapply seven hours later. I ate breakfast AND lunch today (with a coffee and two glasses of water) and yes it has faded but BARELY. I have never had a lipstick last as long and beautifully as Stila Stay All Day! Will definitely be buying again!" —Sara Brasher

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 30 colors).

    8. CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum — it has a natural matte finish and sunscreen that'll last through your workout and hours after.


    Promising review: "I work out in the early morning and I'm a sweaty mess trying to get ready for work. This foundation takes away the shine and provides excellent coverage so much that I don't need anything else! And it lasts all day. Bonus, it doesn't smell like sunscreen." —MaryBeth18

    Get it from Nordstrom $29.50 (available in seven colors).

    9. Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer to deliver an enduring summer glow year-round.


    This product is formulated without parabens or phthalates!

    Promising review: "I really like this product! I use it for contouring, and it gives me a very natural shadow under my cheekbones without making my face look dirty. It lasted through two workouts in one day — definitely waterproof. Great product!" —maltipoo66

    Get it from Sephora for $30.

    10. Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara that'll make your lashes flourish for hours of wear while also being easy to remove.


    Promising review: "My all-time favorite mascara — gives you a false lash look without being clumpy. I apply it with the shorter bristled side first and then use the longer side to sort of comb through, and this gives both volume and length. The mascara lasts all day without smudging or flaking, and it is nice and dark while still being natural enough for usual wear." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in five colors and two sizes).

    11. Make Up For Ever Aqua Seal to instantly convert your powders and pencils into waterproof, long-lasting makeup.


    Promising review: "This literally makes eye makeup indestructible! I always have problems getting my eye makeup to stay, but this keeps everything from running or melting away. I put a couple drops on a brush or palette and then dip the brush in the corner of a black pressed powder to get an eyeliner that won't fail, even after an entire night of clubbing. Overall, really great for creating an indestructible look!" —Kris24

    Get it from Sephora for $21.

    12. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation for hydrating your skin while providing 24-hour coverage with a natural look.


    This product is free of parabens, formaldehydes, and phthalates, and is cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "Love this new foundation! It wears beautifully throughout the day and plays well with the makeup I layer over it. I'd suggest to moisturize and use the Undercover Coconut Primer first for best results." —typo88

    Get it from Sephora for $46 (available in 10+ colors).

    13. Milk Makeup Eye Pigment that'll create a multi-dimensional vivid eye look that won't crease throughout the day.


    This product is formulated without parabens and is cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because I saw how pigmented the swatches were. Let me list all the great things about this product. It's VERY pigmented and a little goes a very long way. The colors are exactly as advertised and this can be perfect for day and night looks depending on the amount used and. And lastly, it's extremely long wearing!" —stephmig

    Get it from Sephora for $24 (available in 10 shades).

    14. Benefits Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara — it's created to never budge and last up to 36 hours.


    Promising review: "I personally love this mascara! I have the typical Asian lashes with very little length and volume. It fits right under my eyes for an even coat of mascara and it does not budge once it's on! I am used to using super waterproof mascara to hold my curls, which can be very drying and clumpy. This is my new favorite mascara because it has the curl without the clumps!" —Jenniqua

    Get it from Ulta for $25.

    15. Anastasia DIPBROW Pomade — a creamy waterproof formula that'll define, sculpt, and provide color to your brows.


    Promising review: "I have been using this pomade for two years. It stays on all day but it's not difficult to wash off either. I use the medium brown and it looks good with dark brown and light brown hair. I always keep it in the box upside down and inside my makeup drawer and that has helped to keep it nice and creamy. The price is actually not that bad for such great quality!!" —pinkcaligurl

    Get it from Sephora for $18 (available in 10+ colors).

    16. Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray — it's formulated with a patented Temperature Control Technology to keep your makeup vibrant all day and night without melting or cracking.


    Promising review: "I went from using no setting spray, to trying this and my makeup STAYS. Went to a baseball game in the middle of the day, and even though I was sweating, my makeup didn't budge. Truly a great product." —dancinginair

    Get it from Sephora for $32 (available in three sizes).

    17. Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer for minimizing fine lines and dark circles with a soft matte finish.


    Promising review: "I am in love with this concealer. It covers everything I need it to! It blends easily, lasts all day, and wears so nicely. And it looks completely natural! By the end of the day, it hasn't settled into weird dry patches either. It's a small bottle but a little goes a long way. I plan to use this for a while." —Beau

    Get it from Ulta for $31 (available in 10 colors).

    18. Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish that'll even blotchy skin and reduce redness all over your body with a long-lasting glow.


    This product is formulated without sulfates, parabens, formaldehydes, and phthalates!

    Promising review: "Seriously this stuff is amazing. I have dark hair and pale skin on my legs, so you can see the hair follicles even after I have shaved and therefore have always been self-conscious of wearing anything that exposes my legs without being tan. I am also terrible with keeping up with self-tanners. This product is easy to use, quick, streak-free, and smells great. It lasts over 24 hours until I wash it off with soap, stays on when water touches it, doesn't transfer to my clothes, and gives a very natural looking tan."—TNealer

    Get it from Sephora for $45 (available in two colors).

    19. Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara — it's perfect for the gym and won't leave flakes or smudges while working out.


    This product won as our top-priced pick for best waterproof mascaras on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Promising review: "This mascara is the best! I was beginning to think that I'd never find a waterproof mascara that wouldn't make my lashes stick together. This mascara had everything I was looking for. It's waterproof, non-sticky, and natural fibers for length. Hands down, this has been the best mascara for the money!" —Estee Dahan

    Get it from Ulta for $26.

    Bring it on rain, sweat, and humidity!!
