Following on from my last post I thought I would share with you my favourite drugstore lipsticks. Apart from my beloved Nars lip pencils, I mainly own and use drugstore lipsticks. I mean some of them are absolutely brilliant, they can be extremely affordable with a huge range of beautiful shades. Plus given that they are affordable it means you can buy more! Well that’s certainly my motto anyway.
I thought I would begin with Revlon ColourBurst collection. I love this collection, they have some stunning shades and they all have great colour payoff. In Australia Revlon isn’t considered especially cheap and is definitely one of the higher priced drugstore brands, but that has not stopped me from owning a few of the Balm Stains and when Revlon introduced their Matte Balms I thought that god had answered my prayers!. The first one I have chosen is the Matte Balm in Showy, this a beautiful bright pink that is absolutely stunning in summer or a bright pop of colour during these dull winter months. I love the Matte Balms because they are beautifully pigmented and they feel creamy and weightless on the lips. No dry old lips after using these! The second lipstick I chose is on of Revlon’s Balm Stains in Cherish. Now I do not suit nude lipsticks at all, they just completely wash me out so this is the perfect shade for me when I want a fuss free lip. It’s a subtle pink that just adds a pop of colour and brightens my face up.
Next up is the Lasting Finish by Kate Moss. I would have to say that matte finishes are my favourite, if you couldn’t tell, and these are a creamy long lasting matte finish which is the perfect combination. The first colour is 110, this is an orangey red shade which I wear a lot and is fabulous all year round. I often use this if I couldn’t be bothered doing much with my eyes but still want to look as if I have made an effort. The second colour is 107, this is a deep scarlet red that looks stunning at night. It is a real statement colour that looks very sophisticated which is why I love it.
Finally I have chosen NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey. This has become my go to lipstick for the past couple of weeks, as I said I don’t suit nudes so this is a perfect day time pink shade that can act as a nude for me. I cannot wait to get my hands on some more of these lipsticks, they are extremely affordable at six dollars a pop so I can definitely see a few more added to my collection in the future.
I have doubled up a little which I apologise for but these are honestly my favourite drugstore lipsticks and I think you might like them too!
I thought I might do a few more favourite posts in the future so please leave some feedback if you would like to see more!
