Makeup that doesn’t melt at the first sign of heat or humidity? Seems too good to be true—except it isn’t. That’s right, melting makeup and reapplying products is now a thing of the past even on the hottest, stickiest, most humid days.

These magical makeup products will weather rising temps and never-ending humidity. Not only do they have some unreal staying power, but they won’t clog or congest pores, either. Just make sure you have a serious makeup remover handy.
