    LOOOOVE wet n wild lipsticks as well as Revlon, which are very pigmented and creamy! Another affordable brand, even though they’re only available online, is colourpop.com they’re liners and lipsticks are only $5 each and the quality is up there with department store brands

    Glamour Dolls! They have great products.

  19. Jasmin Tapia says:

    I don’t wear a lot of makeup. But I do swear by drugstore products mostly because I don’t wear makeup enough to warrant spending $40 for foundation. I love Milani, Neutrogena and Loreal products.

  20. Lisa says:

    I need to know the lipliner she pared with that burgundy blush color

  21. I like Wet n Wild , and i also have a couple of Revlon, NYC and Milani. My favorite drugstore red lipstick is Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb

  22. Jasmine C. says:

    I love Maybelline Color Sensations. Totally Toffee is my favorite nude thus far.

  23. I love Maybelline’s Color Sensations. Totally Toffee is my favorite nude thus far. It’s creamy and smell great.

  24. ELF has great matte lipstick lines!

  25. Allie says:

    Elf has a really pretty matte Red lipstick that literally lasts ALL DAY, the only time it comes off is with a makeup wipe. Seriously my favorite. I even love it more than MAC “Ruby Woo” and I used to love that one…..

  26. Delia says:

    I love the wet&wild I have the entire collection. Most drug stores always have sales I got mine at rite-aid for literally 50 cents. #fabulousonabudget
    I love love nyx. The lipstick pigment is amazing almost mac quality for 3x cheap. The new matte ligloss are to die for

  27. Jessica says:

    The Wet & Wild and Burgundy Blush were my faves! This article couldn’t come at a better time. I’m now getting into the swing of wearing lip sticks myself, but at a affordable cost. This is indeed a great start. Going to keep this list in my back pocket. Thanks 🙂

  28. Linda says:

    I love all these lip colors on your complexion. You did excellent reviews of the pros and cons. Personally, I love lipsticks. I don’t leave the house without a lipstick, balm, gloss, or stain. My favorite drugstore lipsticks are Wet n Wild, ELF, Rimmell and Maybelline. My other affordable lippie ($5) is by ColourPop. You have to purchase it online but it’s worth it for the color payoff. I want to try some of your recommendations.

  29. Nicole Barry says:

    I think La Girl Deserves an honorable mention. Bomb Products!

  30. Zina says:

    All these colors look dope on u! I’ve been thinking about trying out the whole lipstick thing but I’m a lil hesitant. I’d love to see a post on natural colors for chocolate skinned girls. I don’t want to waste money on colors that don’t go well with my complexion and I also don’t want the whole bold colored lip look either. Help a sista out NB staff!

  31. Chrissy says:

    Nyx is amazing, pigmented, last all day and is very affordable!!

  32. Jeneille says:

    Definitely colour pop. Their lippie stix are amazing and their new liquid lipsticks are the business!

  33. TJ says:

    I loved the Burgundy Blush by Maybelline & the Matte Flirty by Milani! Definitely have to cop those two! ❤

  34. SassyJus says:

    YES! I have been a balm/gloss/colored-gloss-when-I-feel-fancy kind of girl and recently discovered lipstick is a GREAT accent for me. It’s all about finding the right color though. This helps, appreciate ya!

  35. Kerissa says:

    Milani is now my ultimate fav. I do own quite a few NYX lippies.

  36. Ebony says:

    Rich Ruby
    Sky pink
    Burgundy blush

  37. Ebony says:

    Btw..I love the NARS matte pencil too….

  38. sunshyne84 says:

    Sky Pink, Burgundy Blush and the Kate Moss are my faves!

  39. TTNico says:

    I’m a lover of luxury beauty products but I’ll occasionally pick up a gloss by L’Oréal or Maybeline. I will say this, i actually like every lipstick and gloss u tried on.

  40. Shop for great mink lashes. Batlashco.com

  41. Love says:

    Colourpop! $6 for a lip color that will last all day. Comparable to the high end liquid mattes on the market.
    Also, NYX and I like wet n wild too.

  42. Anya Michelle says:

    Oh theyre all good! 🙂
    Dior has this amaayzin red, and MAC, I swear if you cant find somethin at MAC then I jus dont know!

  43. Jasmine says:

    OMG I love the Black Radiance Plum Orchid. I wear it like every time I go out.

  44. Karyn says:

    Sky Pink has always been my go-to. I love the way the Rimmell looks on her. That Maybelline Burgundy Blush is going to be shopped for tomorrow… Even though I have a similar Mac Matte.

    Elf was a shocker with their matte sticks. For $3, I am hooked! My lips are on the larger scale, so mattes work best for me. NYX lipsticks always end up on my teeth and their matte gloss tubes are definitely skimpy inside. I just use their lip and eyeliners now.

  45. Browngirl411 says:

    I swear by Maybelline super stay 24 hour color in everlasting wine. Stays on through eating and drinking all day. Great color payoff. No blam or liner needed.

  46. I really only buy Rihanna mac lipstick. Other than that, I find cheap replacements
