Who said you had to spend $30-75 bucks to have great pigmented or long lasting lipstick? I went to my local Walgreens and cleaned up on all these lipsticks that were under $10!! Yes you heard me right, all these cost $10 or less. Typically I use lip liners but I wanted to show you all the true color of lipsticks so I skipped the liner. Which one is your favorite? Tell me in the comments.
1. CoverGirl Colorlicious Melting Pout Lipstick, Gel-Ful
This beauty was only $4.99!! I got it on sale in store but it's still only $7.99. It comes out of a tube with gel like consistency. It is very smooth and easy to apply. My lips felt very moisturized and not dry. I also liked that it was very easy to take off.
2. Wet n Wild Lip Color, Honolulu Is Calling
OKAY! Online this is only $1.19!! I paid a little more in store I think around $3 dollars, but this is still a great deal. The lipstick comes in a tube and applies that regular tube lipsticks. My lips were moisturized and the color orange was very pigmented but not overpowering. It also removes great too ladies!
3. e.l.f. Liquid Matte Lipstick, Berry Sorbet
I love e.l.f!! This beauty was only $6.00 in store. So I am so already impartial - but this is a great matte lip that is very pigmented and poppin! It is a matte so it does dry, dry. You want to make sure your lips have some moisture already so you won't fill like your lips are stiff. You will need a makeup remover wipe to take off as well, but it comes off with no fuss.
4. Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour, Fire Starter
Hot MAMA! I don't typically wear a red lippie but when I do, it's got to be FIRE. This liquid lip was only $4.29! I loved the application stick, it made it easy to apply and stay in the lines. This had a little bit of moisture in it so not as stiff as some liquid lipsticks. The removal was simple with a makeup remover wipe as well.
5. Black Radiance Perfect Tone Matte Lip Creme, 5404
Shout out to a black woman owned business!! This purple was only $4.59! It is a matte, so it runs on the dry side. Make sure you have moisture on your lips before applying. This matte also is super at staying in place. So girl you can eat, take a nap, run a mile and your lips will still be poppin! Make sure you use a makeup removal wipe to take off.
6. Wet n Wild Lipstick Matte, Never Nude
Now, if you know me, I live for a GOOD NUDE LIP. This was only $2.99! This came in a traditional lipstick tube and applied very smoothly. I like my nudes a little more pinky - and I think this washed me out, I would use a pink liner and make it pop a bit more!
So which color are you rolling with?
