I thought I would share with you guys the lipsticks which I find the best quality lipsticks which are drug store priced. I actually own more higher end lipsticks than drug store. I have no clue why but that’s just how it is. But I do find that there isn’t much different between drug store lipsticks and higher end lipsticks. You just tend to be buying the brand name and then the product. However this was really hard for me to choose as I actually have a huge lipstick collection. I need to buy more storage as I have lipsticks everywhere! I have included a mixture of actually lipsticks and a liquid lipstick as there is such a variety of lipsticks on the market now that I had to cover most areas.

I don’t know whether I can class the Helen E lipstick as drug store as you can’t buy it from Superdrug or Boots but it has a drug store price. I have it in a pinky nude colour which I love as it is a glossy lipstick. I don’t have many glossy lipsticks so for a change I like to slap this across my lips. It goes on really nicely and doesn’t feel sticky on my lips. If I have a sticky lipstick or a heavy one it is a big ‘No No’ or ‘Lipstick Turn Off’ as I like to call it.

I also chose the L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick which they released for their 30th anniversary. But can we just take a moment to admire how gorgeous the gold packaging is! Ahhhhh it’s just so visually amazing! Its such a gorgeous coral/orange colour which is more subtle than my other orange lipsticks. I like how subtle it is but how vibrant it is at the same time.

Yes. I know I had the Maybelline 757 Lipstick in my blog post yesterday but I had to include it because it genuinely is one of my favourite drug store lipsticks. It is one of the longest lasting lipsticks I know, which for a dark lipstick I find really important. If a nude lipstick smudges whilst eating etc it doesn’t really show but if your wearing a dark lipstick and it smudges then all hell could break lose on your face!

The next two products are NYX products. One being one of their Creamy Round Lipsticks in a bright and holographic pink which I simply love because of how daring the colour is. It has blue glitter in it and its so cute. The other is the classic Soft Matte Lip Cream which if you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I love so much. It is just matte, nude and simply amazing!

Let me know in the comments your favourite drug store lipstick!
