Best Liquid Lipsticks–Drugstore!
In early July, I did a blog post about my favorite liquid lipsticks from Sephora (check it out if you haven’t already) and I decided that it would be a good idea to do a drugstore version of that post since it went over so well! While there are some amazing liquid lipsticks at Sephora, there are equally as incredible liquid lipsticks available at the drugstore! Read below to find out my favorites! XO!
Best Liquid Lipsticks–Drugstore
- LÓreal Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick–$9.99
I just recently discovered these GEMS, but they are officially my new favorite liquid lipsticks, hands down! I saw the video Tati Westbrook made on these lippies and immediately ran to CVS to buy them! I bought two shades and I was astounded at how amazing they were when I tried them when I got home! First of all, they smell so delicious, just like cocoa powder. But most importantly, the formula is incredible. The formula is so pigmented and not patchy whatsoever! The wear-time is incredible, these lippies last soooo long on the lips and look absolutely incredible the whole time you are wearing them! They last so long that they are actually difficult to get off! And lastly, the shade range is small but I don’t mind since these nudes are exactly what I have been searching for, for years!
My favorite shades: Box O’ Chocolate and Sweet Tooth (AND how cute are those names?!)
According to the Ulta website, “Chocolate lovers, meet your matte! L’Oréal’s cult-favorite Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick just got more addictive. Enhanced with an indulgent chocolate aroma, Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick Les Chocolats scented provides all day full, matte coverage. This long wear liquid lipstick feels light for all day comfort, never sticky. A chocolate nude liquid lipstick for every craving, meet your newest lip addiction. With a pro-sculpt applicator, shape and add dimension to lips.”
2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream–$6.50
Much like the NYX Butter Glosses, these were the first lipstick, or liquid lipstick, that I ever tried! Towards the end of 7th grade, my mom finally allowed me to wear mascara and let me upgrade from lip gloss to lipstick! Since I loved the NYX Butter Glosses so much, I went right back to CVS and picked up the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in a few shades and to this day, they are still one of my very favorites! This “lip cream” is technically a liquid lipstick but it is definitely not entirely matte or transfer proof, which I personally enjoy. These lip creams are a satin finish and are so smooth and comfortable on the lips! And only are they smooth and comfortable on the lips, but they are so pigmented and have a pretty considerable wear time for such a satin and comfortable lip formula. I really feel that these lip creams from NYX moisturize my lips instead of drying them out which most liquid lipsticks do! What is most impressive about this range is that it features 46 shades, so you are sure to find one that suits YOU!
My favorite shades: Buenos Aires, London, Abu Dhabi, Cannes, Athens, Zurich, Cabo, and Kyoto.
According to the Ulta website, “NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream straddles the line between lipstick and gloss! This velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a fan favorite.”
3. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick–$7.99
These Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks are absolutely phenomenal! They are definitely a matte liquid lipstick but they are so comfortable and non-drying on the lips! They even verge on hydrating on the lips! I first discovered these liquid lipsticks about 3 years ago and quickly fell in love with them. The shade Nude Thrill is constantly in my purse!
My favorite shades: Nude Thrill, Nude Flush, Rebel Red, and Orange Shot.
According to the Ulta website, “Drench your lips in sensuous, vivid color with Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color. Pure pigments collide with a creamy liquid base for a velvety-soft, cushiony feel. The result? A high-impact lip that stands out!”
Benefits: “Mousse-like texture glides on smooth to a creamy, velvety matte finish, Features 2X the pigments for sensuous, vivid color, Available in a collection of super-saturated shades from stone to deep berry, and every color in between!”
4. Wet n’ Wild MegaLast Matte Liquid Lipstick–$4.99
These liquid lipsticks are not my absolute favorite but I decided to include them on this list of my favorites because they are amazing for the price. The shade range is slightly limited and kind of random but if you can find a shade that you like, PICK IT UP! The formula is amazing and again, the price is right! I did find two shades that I like, they are just not shades I wear everyday. I hope that Wet n’ Wild will expand this shade range to include more wearable nudes in the future!
My favorite shades: Pink Really Hard and Nudist Peach.
According to the Ulta website, “What glides on like butter, feels like a second skin and won’t budge? Wet n Wild’s Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick! Made with glammed out superpowers, it goes on glossy yet transforms into a high-pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power. Read our lips: This color is going nowhere.”
