It’s no secret I’m a makeup junkie, but perhaps lesser-known that I am a lip-product junkie. There’s nothing like the perfect lip color to tie your look together, and as a girl who loves to play with color and finishes, I own quite the collection. While I have a number of high-end lipsticks, I find the drugstore carry some amazing ranges, and they’re perfectly priced for those of you out there just beginning to experiment with them. Today I thought I would focus on the five drugstore lip product ranges that have got me hooked, from stick, to crayon, to gloss:
L’Oreal Color Riche Lipsticks
I find these lipsticks get the ultimate bad rap for their chemically scent- and while that’s not the best part of these lipsticks, they still come in an amazing range of shades, and are super pigmented and long-lasting. They even have several color ranges created by several celebrities, so the colors all work for various skin types, which is wonderful considering the drugstore is known for its limitations in shades suiting the fairest and deepest skin tones.
Maybelline Color Sensational Mattes
Sadly I only just got into this range in America and it has yet to arrive in Norway. Maybelline really impressed me with this beautiful true red lipstick, and it was my staple all through December. The comfortable matte formula was long-lasting, making it perfect for daytime wear in school, so I didn’t have to worry about constantly touching it up. There are so many shades, with a bold color line and a nudes line that I am dying to check out, there’s something for everyone. For such a great quality lipstick, you almost can’t beat the low price tag. (And is it just me, or is the matte frosted-glass/plastic
NYX Butter Glosses
You’ve seen these several times now in favorites, and this surely won’t be the last time you hear about them. These buttery smooth, super shiny and pigmented enough glosses (that they aren’t a shiny liquid lipstick) are uber comfortable to wear- not overly stick and super moisturizing, and quite long lasting to boot! Next on my list are: Fortune Cookie, Madeline, Peach Cobbler, and Apple Strudel.
Revlon Lip Crayons
Despite their length, these are surprisingly convenient products to carry with one. I own just about 2 from every range these lip crayons come in, the Matte Balms, the Colorburst Laquer Balms, the Balm Stains, and I LOVE them. I love the crayon-shaped bullet and the twisty bottom that guarantees tons of product to last you ages. I also love that the packing really does correspond to the color of the product. Next on my list is the Matte Balm in Sultry.
