You guys, this is hard. Lipstick, Lipgloss, Lip balm, Matte, Glossy, Satin... it all gets me and I LOVE the world of LIPS. Judge me if you will. This post has been a long time coming. I specifically wanted to corrale my favorite DRUGSTORE lips. I definitely have some higher end faves- but I wanted to share some "just as good" options with a smaller price tag!
So without further ado, these are the ones I "always come back to"... the ones I reach for most often. The ones I would be willing to buy double of just to have one in my purse as well as make up dresser. I am sharing them with you today, along with some liners that I think are great compliments! I will say, as you can see, I am a big fan of all things pink/nude/mauve. If that's not your jam, these lippies come in multiple colors, so check them out in different shades if you'd like! I will link them below and give you a little reason why I'm a fan.
*Side note: these are all accessible at the one and only Target and are all under $10. You can also access the links to these by clicking on the "shop my instagram" link in my bio via instagram.
LEFT TO RIGHT- CLOCKWISE
The Healthy Lip- by Physicians Formula in the color "All Natural Nude". Again, very impressed with the long wear of this liquid lip. Physician's Formula is upping their game, they have a bronzer and highlighter out right now that is sweeping the nation. Ok, maybe not that dramatic, but it's like- really good stuff. I love the color of this one. It's a beautiful nude and it lasts most of the day as well.
Flower Beauty is kind of killing it right now in the drugstore make up game. Drew Barrymore of all people started this line and they have some killer lip products on the market now. Super affordable and available at WalMart, Ulta, and online only. I love this Mix 'n' Matte dual lip in the shade "Honey Nude" The pigment is on point and the velvety/metallic topper is so stinking pretty. It stays on too. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
Covergirl Melting Pout Matte- This particular liquid lipstick is ON POINT and from what I have read definitely rivals some higher end lip products in terms of it being long wearing and pretty pigment. I would never guess this was a drugstore product if you put tape over the name. The quality is great and I LOVE this color- "ballerina". It's a soft and velvet finish that lasts!
So this is a new lipstick line by Colourpop Cosmetics called Lux Lipsticks. These lipsticks retail for $7 and are just as good as any MAC lipstick on the market, which is a bold statement. I can't say enough. This has become my go-to-everyday nude lip and is the color "TipToe". I love it because it has a satin finish... I like satin finishes because you can throw on a gloss over it to add a shine.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss is all the rage right now folks. Definitely for a reason... because it's awesome. Their shades are beau-TEE-ful and it goes on like a dream. Smooth/Creamy/Soft-- (insert more intensely descriptive adjectives) I have the this gloss in "Creme Brulee" and may or may not have an extra in my purse and car. You can't go wrong with this lip gloss, this shade is sheer and universal for all skin tones. No brainer.
As for some accompanying liners. I didn't picture them, but they are all interchangeable with these lippies! I will simply link them below.
