The kiss on the field had everyone talking. But it wasn't just the kiss; it was Taylor Swift's signature lipstick that didn't budge an inch. So, how does she do it? Let's dive into the secrets of her smudge-free look.

Taylor Swift's Lipstick: The Formula

According to makeup artist Julie Niesen, Taylor Swift is rumored to wear Pat McGrath's LiquiLUST Legendary Wear Lipstick in the shade "Elson 4" lined with Pat McGrath's PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil in "Structure." This silicon-based formula is highly pigmented and waterproof, making it perfect for enduring dancing, rain, and even kissing Travis Kelce. The lipstick requires an oil-based remover to take off, ensuring long-lasting wear.
