There are two kinds of people in this world: people who fully lean into Valentine's Day by sporting all things red and heart-shaped and people who avoid the holiday at all costs. It depends on the year, but most of the time, I fall somewhere in the middle, swooning over the colorful nail designs, oversize teddy bears, and festive candy selection.
This year, I'm fulling leaning into Valentine's Day so I have an excuse to experiment with fun makeup looks, and MAC always comes through for me when I'm testing new products. The brand just launched Locked Kiss Ink 24-Hr Lipcolour ($33), its first-ever 24-hour lip formula. I hate having to whip out a compact mirror to reapply my lip combo, so this formula is a true game changer. Locked Kiss Ink is a proven kiss-proof, waterproof, and transfer-proof liquid lipstick that's available in 16 luscious shades, so the only problem I'm facing is which color to wear on Valentine's Day. Naturally, I decided to enlist my fellow editors for their expert opinions. They went above and beyond and shared collages of the makeup looks they're considering for February 14, and it's safe to say I'm smitten. If you want to see the looks we created, keep scrolling.
