Don’t Be Afraid to Wear Lipstick with Your N95 Mask

Masks became the #1 accessory for men and women this past year. Whether it’s something made of cloth or the best one for health protection like the N95 Particulate Respirator Mask, it changed our habits and the way we put ourselves together before we head out the door. 

For example, makeup. It became all about eyes rather than lips. But now that more people are getting vaccinated and restrictions are being eased, it might be time to bring lipstick back to your routine. 

Choosing the Right Lipstick to Wear Under Your Mask

Even if you are in a part of the country where low vaccination rates and the ongoing threat of Covid-19 make it sensible to wear a face mask, like our Dura Mask N95, there are still things like Zoom meetings and outdoor restaurants where you will take off your face mask and show off our lips.

If you tried wearing lipstick under your N95 mask in the past and noticed that it smeared the inside of the face mask, you may have given up on lipstick. The trick is in choosing the right formula that can stay on your lips while you are wearing your face mask or particulate respirator and still look great when you take it off.

Here are some great smudge-proof lipsticks you may want to try:

A creamy formula that glides over lips like a gloss and sets to a matte finish. It’s packed with natural moisturizers, including vitamin E and sunflower seed wax.


High-impact color and long wear. Its weightless, comfortable, soft-matte formula stays all day.


Provides a splash of liquid color and eight-hour wear that doesn’t smudge.


Super pigmented liquid lipstick with long-wearing, creamy color. Infused with avocado oil and vitamin E, it’s soft, matte and cruelty free.


A high-impact, low-maintenance lip stain with bold colors and a satin-matte finish. It combines the precision of a lipstick, the hydration of a lip balm, and the long-wearing color of a stain.


It’s luxurious and richly pigmented with a long- and strong-wearing matte finish. It’s also hydrating and lightweight. What’s not to love?


It’s not a lipstick, but it helps any lipstick or gloss stay on as long as you wish. No lipstick smudges or tracks of it on glasses or coronavirus face masks.


That’s just a small collection of possibilities that would be perfect companions to your everyday essential, the N95 mask. If you have another smudge-proof lipstick that you wear under our N95 masks, we would love to hear about it

Until then, have fun with your makeup, wear your N95 mask, and stay healthy!
