Top 3 Drugstore Faves: Neutral Lipsticks!



So how do you find the best neutral lipsticks out there? Trial and error, for realz! But you know one significant thing I learned? Nevah evah buy a neutral/nude lipstick that is lighter than your lip color! Not only it looks weird but it will wash you out. #beentheredonethat

If you are new to makeup, neutrals and drugstore brands are your safest choice. Here are my top 3 faves:
{ arm swatches reveal deeper colors but on lips they're way lighter }

NYX Matte Euro Trash ($5.99) is pink-brown in matte finish. It glides smoothly and doesn't dry out my lips.

At $5, e.l.f. Mineral Lipstick is relatively pricey considering that most e.l.f makeups cost about a dollar. Bare Brown is light brick brown that has a little gloss finish.

Wet n Wild Mega Last 902C ($1.99) is medium nude with semi-matte finish. Despite its annoyingly flimsy packaging, I still love it for its 3 P's: price, pigmentation, perfect nude shade for my skin tone.

What about you? What are your fave drugstore neutrals?

  2. I love reading posts like these, seeing people's top picks for various items. That wet n wild one looks particularly pretty, I think I'll be trying that one out. Can't think of any drugstore neutrals that work great for me, surprisingly

    1. Thanks much Catherine! Yeah, you should check it out I must warn you tho the packaging is less than impressive. But for $2, it's still a steal!
