Pretty, Luscious Drugstore Lipstick

Drugstore Lips 3

There not many places as one-stop and as fun to shop in as Target. And I get really excited when I find things there like lipsticks that cost less than ten dollars and perform like those upwards of twenty. These four formulas are thick, moisturizing, and the colors are truly beautiful. L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick in Doutzen’s Nude 600 (bottom right) and Julianne’s Nude 620 (left corner) both have excellent payoff and a light, yet long lasting, moisturizing texture. The colors are very easy to wear and equally easy to mix, my idea of what lipstick needs to be…

The plan was to use those as a base, skip lip liner, and use the subtly defining but light catching & sheen enhancing Revlon Colorblast Balm Stain in Charm (top) and Honey (top right) as a liner, and glossy topcoat, and my plan worked. In fact, it was a lot of fun since these colors can be endlessly mixed, layered, and leveled in intensity. Like crayons for the lips, with no waxy residue. Finds like these make me happy…
