I use lipstick from $5 to $25 to fit many price ranges without sacrificing quality.
Out of any makeup products, I probably have 3-10 different lipstick in my purse at any given time. I wanted to share my favorite classic shades I reach for over and over again. I use one or more of these every single day. Any time I go to the store, I usually come home with another lip product to try out and these are just a few of the good ones. I’ve used some of these for years and others I found recently but fell for hard. Here’s some of my favorites:
Stila Stay all Day Liquid Lipstick
This lipstick was suggested to me by a dear friend of mine and I couldn’t be happier she did! It has a very creamy formula that dries matte and stays without dehydrating my lips. I wear the color Patina but I’m hoping to get try out a couple other colors soon.
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink
Another friend suggested this lipstick to me and you guys, it’s a TOTAL game changer! It’s a matte finish lasts for hours and stays EVEN when I’m eating. It can be a little drying so make sure to use a lip balm before applying. I love the colors Lover and Seductress!
ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip
I think this lipstick blows a lot of the other formulas out of the water for a fraction of the cost. This goes on like a lipstick and dries like a lip stain and lasts all day. It’s more of a subtle pigment, but can be layered easily. Doozy, Double Scoop and Zuma are my go-to lipstick shades.
ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip
This lipstick is really similar to the Ultra Blotted Lip except this one is more pigmented than the other. Two of the best shades are Mama and Screenshot, but I have a ton others I use every once in a while too.
Too Faced Melted Chocolate Long-Wear Lipstick
This is a really subtle lipstick that actually smells and tastes like chocolate. Chocolate Milkshake is the perfect nude color and I wear it all the time.
Tarteist Lip Paint
This lipstick is also super creamy and the colors are stunning! My favorite is Festival, but sadly it’s sold out. The shade TBT is super similar.
Urban Decay Beached Vice Lipstick
I love all the Urban Decay Beached products. It’s one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes and I fell head over heels for the lipstick. Heatwave has a shimmer in it so it looks metallic on the lips and is the prettiest burgundy shade. I do need to reapply it, but it never dries out my lips.
Urban Decay Born to Run Vice Lipstick
I usually don’t go for purple, but this gorgeous mauve lipstick is one a reach for over and over again. It’s the same formula as the one I just mentioned. Get the color 66 and test it out!
Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme
I know I’ve talked about this lipstick before here, but it’s too good not to mention! It dries beautifully and makes my lips feel super soft. I LOVE the color Adorable since it’s the perfect nude color and goes with everything.
NARS Lip Balm
I know these next couple products aren’t lipsticks, but I wear them all the time. I use this lip balm everyday under lipstick and just by itself since it gives a light flushed pink color. It’s like my lips but better!
eos Crystal Lip Balm Sphere
I’ve used eos lip balm for years and this is my favorite scent: hibiscus peach! There’s no pigment at all and doesn’t leave my lips feeling sticky at all.
Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream
This plumping lip gloss leaves my lips feeling super tingly and looking very full. It isn’t sticky which is an added bonus. I love wearing the color Dolly.
Fenty Universal Lip Gloss
This may be my favorite lip gloss out of the bunch. I didn’t understand the hype behind Fenty until I tried this lip gloss. The color is supposedly universally flattering and it 100% is. It isn’t sticky, has beautful flecks of shimmer and honestly tastes amazing. It’s a little on the pricer side of lip products, but it’s totally worth it.
These are my go-to lipstick I use all the time. Let me know which ones you’ve tried from my list or what brands I need to try next.
