I’ve been buying a lot of expensive beauty products lately and I felt the need to add some drugstore products to my routine - I’m a total sucker for a good drugstore lip product. I had never tried any of these products before but I actually got on quite well with all of them –win!
The first lipsticks I picked up were the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipstick in 05 and Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss lipstick in 107. I think I first heard about these in one of Zoella’s beauty-related videos. Both of these formulations are really nicely pigmented and smell sweet, like candy. I didn’t find the matte version overly drying or flat, it’s just a tad less hydrating than the regular Lasting Finish formula. The shade 05 is a lovely blue undertone pink and 107 is a darker berry red. I would recommend applying these lightly because they are quite thick and heavy. Overall, I think these are a great option for a bold pop of colour.
Next, I decided to try a Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 085 Sugar Plum. With fall starting and winter just around the corner, I love wearing a moisturizing lip product during the day to ease my inevitably dry lips. This Revlon Lip Butter is extremely hydrating and leaves a luscious sheen on the lips. It applies quite sheer but can be built up to add a bit more colour. Sugar Plum is warm purple shade that I think will be perfect for the cooler months.
The last lip products I picked up are what I am most excited about. I have been on the hunt for the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Crayons for about a year now and I FINALLY found them at Shoppers Drug Mart! I got two, in Fuchsia-ristic and Plum Jam. These crayons are a great wash of glossy colour that really hydrates the lips and has a vanilla-esque scent. They’re not the most pigmented products but they still leave a great amount of colour and can be built up quite easily. Fuchsia-ristic is a peachy pink and Plum Jam is a red with a bit of warmth. These are great if you want a gloss look on your without a sticky residue. I am definitely going to get back ups of these because I think they’re great for daily wear, even if they don’t have great lasting power.
Gotta love great lip colours from the drug store! Any drug store lip product recommendations?
