Ah, summer—the season of sunshine, watermelon, patios, and beach days. Even though some of the sweetest things in life happen during summer, the season is not exactly known for being the most glamorous time of year. From thigh chafing, to sunburns, to sweat stains and frizzy hair, our beauty routines can take quite a hit when the temperature rises.

One of the most annoying aspects of summer beauty is that dreaded feeling of makeup, well, melting right off. Thanks to sweat and humidity, it can be hard to keep your flawlessly beat face in place. Luckily, we discovered long ago that the easiest way to look put-together during summer is by finding a legit long-wear lipstick in a bright, summery shade. Easier said than done, right? Nope! We’ve done it for you.

Below are 13 lipsticks in fun, summery shades, that won’t budge—no matter how much sweat or how many Aperol Spritzes are involved.
