Favorite INEXPENSIVE lipsticks


Lipstick brings your whole look together, that is just a fact. Once you find your go-to shade it is hard to deviate away from it. That is exactly what happened with these four lipsticks for me. On any given day I am wearing one of these products or have them ready to go in my purse. Everything about them is great but the ridiculously low price tags just seal the deal!

Wet n’ Wild  MegaLast Lip Color in “Bare It All”

This is the lipstick that started my love affair with lipstick! The most inexpensive of the group, coming in around two dollars is my favorite. A neutral brown shade on me, but would appear more nude on less naturally pigmented lips. You can wear this with EVERYTHING, it goes with all makeup looks or no makeup at all. This is the most wearable, everyday shade I have found. The matte formula has a slight slip to it for the first couple hours then eventually dries down. You most likely only have to apply once throughout your day. From the state my current bullet is in, you can tell it gets a lot of love. Comfortable, beautiful and no fuss whatsoever!


Wet n Wild  MegaLast Lip Color in “In the  Flesh”

I am just a fan of the whole MegaLast matte lipstick line. They have some incredible colors. This shade is a bit darker and more red toned than the previous one. Same formula and same “rock it everyday” ability. I wear this lipstick when I have a more low-key eye look going on. Obsessed! I interchange this shade and Bare It All constantly.  When I NEED my makeup to look perfect all day, this is what I reach for. These lipsticks also last forever, like I bought them four years ago and wear them constantly, forever. Now that they are FINALLY running low, I need to go pick up another one, or three.


E.L.F Matte Lip Color in “Tea Rose”

Another long time favorite. This is the one for all the cool toned lovers out there. The thin bullet allows for more control and the hidden in the bottom sharpener lets you keep its shape. Allowing you to line and fill in your pout super fast! This mauve/lavender shade is fun but still wearable. This is a matte formula as well, sensing a trend? Staying put is my number one priority in a lipstick, I don’t want to have to worry about it moving or getting on my teeth throughout the day. You will may to reapply after eating, but it is worth it. A non drying matte in a flattering for all skin tones shade. Coming in at around three dollars, run don’t walk to go pick this lipstick up.


COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in “Spellbound”

This is the fun, bold and bright color of the group. After discovering this lipstick I could not get enough. I was planning outfits and makeup looks to match this product, not the other way around. The intense magenta shade is so flattering. The blue undertones make your teeth appear whiter and the powerful pigment makes your lips look fuller. This lipstick is once again a matte formula. The last thing you want to worry about when rockin’ a fun lip is if it is going to budge. This lipstick stays put from your morning to coffee to your late night martini. Whenever I want to pump up any look this is my go-to product. Don’t be scared, you are going to love it, I promise!


With these four products being easy to find at your nearest drugstore or online, there is no reason not to try them all. A go-to shade for any occasion! Paint your pout and pinch your pennies with these lip color choices. What is your must have lip product?!

    Ha, I wish I could narrow my lipsticks down to 4. More like 24. They have their own drawer in my dressing table.

      It took a LOT of thought! We seem like kindred spirits, I am a lipstick hoarder myself 😉

    There is something *magic* about CoverGirl Spellbound. It’s the perfect color brightens your eyes, I always get compliments, and it last forever. Other colors in the same line don’t have the same staying power.
