Top 5 Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks


Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks for Indian Skin

Hello Beauties. This is a guest post by Anamika Sureka, owner of  Wiseshe, one of most popular beauty blogs of India. I am extremely happy to share her unique piece of article at my blog. Here it goes.
Lipsticks are quintessential in the makeup ritual and any Indian makeup loving woman gets addicted to this cosmetic item to the most extent. A luscious pout is surely able to attract many eye balls towards it and become an instant head-turner. Lovely lips with the perfect hint of color which suits the complexion is the key to looking gorgeous and glamorous without doing much.
There are so many brands which exclusively deal with providing a wide range of lip colors suited for every skin tone. Well, due to the recent innovations and the enormous love for makeup, these days there are many Drugstore brands which initially started off as general brands in beauty and skincare have gradually entered the competition and offered a lot of cosmetics to so many people who trust these brands without a doubt. These Drugstore brands have managed to capture the market with the price, quality & formulation in a superb manner by satisfying the consumers in the same way as the other high-end cosmetic brands have done.

Here is a list of my Five favorite Lipsticks which are from Drugstore brands but their high performance & world class formulation has surely made them one of the favorites.

Top Favorite Drugstore Lipstick Brands:

Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick Mat 4

This Maybelline Lipstick is surely one of my favorite brands when it comes to offering lipstick which is really great in texture, pigmentation and staying power. This brand is considered the pioneer in offering interesting lip products in the cosmetics industry. The shade is a beautiful orange with slight red undertones. The texture is moisturizing and hydrating. The finish however is not truly matte and gives a light sheen on application. But given the price and formulation, this surely is one of the decent buys one can easily get their hands on.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain Romantic

Revlon is surely among the top favorites when it comes to choosing the best drugstore brand lipsticks. The stain has a lovely bold finish and tends to give luscious looking lips with the much improved formulation. The chubby stick works as a light lip stain as well as a bold lipcolor on special occasions. I have been a great fan of its lipstick range and it is surely one of the most popular brands for most of the lipstick lovers.

Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Moss #22

 I am a diehard fan of red lips and prefer to wear a red pout on days when I am not sure what lip shade to wear! The red shade is such a classy looking shade and gives an altogether glamorous look to the face and just brightens up any dull face within seconds. The bold shade looks complimenting on any skin tone and one can easily flaunt this beautiful shade on any given day. The red shade has slight coral pink undertones which is more obvious under artificial lighting. It is surely one of my all time favorite lipsticks from a drugstore brand of Rimmel London.

Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick Red Velvet

Another famous drugstore brand is the Wet n Wild which has been offering great lipsticks and these are great performing and easy on the pocket lipsticks which everyone can easily try. The lip shade has a great pigmentation and tends to stay put for 4 + hours easily along with giving a beautiful hue to the pout. The gorgeous finish and pigmentation will make you drool over every shade from the range. The lips look really tempting after the lipstick is applied on the lips.

Max Factor Color Elixir Lipstick Ruby Tuesday 715

 Another stunning lipstick from a famous drugstore brand is Ruby Tuesday from Max factor. The finish and pigmentation of this shade is really rich and creamy and looks very beautiful on application. The shade is a bright blue-toned red which gives a beautiful sheen under flash light. The staying power is really impressive of these shades given the price and the brand these lipsticks come from. These can easily give tough competition to any high-end brand which offers lipsticks.
