Hello lovelies, welcome back to the blog! I took a quick break because I had writer’s block, but today I’m back with my favorite drugstore lipsticks!
1. MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL CREAMY MATTES
This collection came out at the height of the matte lips trend. Maybelline has continued to develop this collection by adding more colors and different finishes.
I really prefer matte lipsticks to liquid lipsticks now because they’re a little less drying. My favorite out of the ones I own is Touch of Spice. I really enjoy the color and it was the first matte lipstick I ever bought.
2. REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICKS
Revlon was one of the first brands I turned to when I first started getting into lipsticks. I enjoy the large shade range that they’ve come out with. They’re also creamy and comfortable on the lips.
Pink velvet has to be my favorite because it’s a warm pink that gives my face a pop of color!
3. RIMMEL THE ONLY ONE LIPSTICKS
Rimmel is also a great affordable brand for lipsticks! They mainly focus on pinks, reds, and some violet shades, but I feel like their brand is mostly suited for people with fair skin tones.
I have fair to medium skin so some of their shades work for me, but sometimes they can be too pink or too cool-toned on my skin.
Nonetheless, I really enjoy the Kate Moss lipsticks and The Only One collection. I’ve spoken about The Only One lipsticks many times on my blog, but I feel like they don’t get enough love! They have a small collection, but I think the colors are pretty and they go on smoothly with some shine, but dry down to a velvet finish!
My favorite is Naughty Nude because it’s my perfect pinky nude and it’s great for everyday wear. ☺
4. NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAMS
NYX has some pretty great lip products, especially their soft matte lip creams! These products have been talked about for years and it’s easy to see why people love them so much.
They’re much more comfortable than the current liquid lipsticks and come in a variety of shades, from super light nudes to dark berry colors. I also like how they’re all named after cities!
They go on demi-matte and aren’t too drying on the lips. My favorite is the shade Cannes, which I’ve talked about so many times on this blog (you can read about my obsession with it here and it even made it into my 2016 favorites!).
It’s my other favorite pinky nude besides Naughty Nude. My other favorite would have to be Antwerp because it’s a bright pink.
5. COLOURPOP ULTRA SATIN LIPS
I’m giving this brand an honorable mention since it isn’t found in the drugstore, but it’s at a drugstore price! Colourpop is a brand that has become extremely popular lately because of its affordable price point and huge collection of shades to choose from.
I personally prefer the Ultra Satin Lip formula, but I also own the Ultra Matte Lip formula as well! My favorite shade is Viper because it’s a violet shade with some pink tones mixed into it and I really love the way it looks in different lights.
So those are my favorite lipsticks from the drugstore! You don’t have to spend a lot to own pigmented and pretty lipsticks; there are already so many to choose from at your local stores.
