The Best Drugstore Liquid Lipsticks

Liquid lipsticks have taken the beauty world by storm. It seems like every cosmetic brand is releasing one. I have my fair share of them from high end to drugstore. The drugstore is catching on to this trend, and there are some really good finds! I’m going to cover all of my favorites. I wanted to spotlight products that you could find at almost any drugstore – whether it’s Walgreens, CVS, Target, or even your grocery store. Yes, there are a lot of budget-friendly options that you can buy online, but what if you want it now?! 

I’ve got you covered, friend.

These are the BEST drugstore liquid lipsticks! They can also be found at most drugstores - whether you visit Walgreens, CVS, Target, or Ulta!

I have to say right now that not all liquid lipsticks are the same. I know what usually comes to mind is a long-wearing matte finish that is budge proof and kiss proof. The ones that I am mentioning range from all types of wear. They are all in liquid form, and all have a matte finish.

I have listed them below in order from longest to shortest wear. Let’s get right into it!

Rimmel London Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour // Y’all. This stuff is absolutely bulletproof. Out of all of my liquid lipsticks, including my high-end ones, this one wears the longest! I have to scrub my lips with micellar water and coconut oil to get it all off. There is a limited shade range, but they have great colors. I own the shades “I’ll Call You” and “Kiss Fatal.”

Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Matte Liquid Lipstick // This liquid lipstick is new on my radar. It is a limited edition release, but I mention it because they have released similar things like this depending on the season, and I am really hoping this formula of liquid lipsticks stays. I got the shade “Too Tulip to Quit” (haha I love that) and it’s the perfect summer to fall transition color. I know this shade is limited edition, but I am hoping and praying Wet ‘n Wild keeps releasing these in new shades every season! I absolutely love the formula, the applicator, and the wear time of this. It’s so good!! I grabbed this one from a special display at Walgreens.

Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Lip Color // I usually find Jordana cosmetics at Walgreens. This one is such a good find! I have the shade “Creme Brulee” and some say that it is a dupe for Kylie Cosmetics’ Koko K. I cannot confirm or deny this claim because I do not own any Kylie lipsticks. I love the color and how it applies. It gets a little crumbly after a while, but nothing horrible. I am blown away this is so inexpensive!!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream // These have been around for quite some time and they are just so good. They’re so comfortable to wear, do not crumble, and there are so many amazing shades. You can usually find a large shade selection at Ulta, and I highly recommend you pick one up. They wear for a good while, but what I like about them is that they fade evenly and not blotchy.

(These next three products I would consider not long wearing lip products, but have matte finishes. Think of them as matte lipsticks in liquid form.)

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Lip Color // I really love how this applies and wears. It’s pretty long wearing and the nude shades are amazing!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color // I really enjoy how these apply. The one thing I don’t care for is the overly sweet smell. I would say this is my least favorite out of the bunch, but I still really like it! I especially love the packaging and the wand.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss // The name of the product is exactly just that. A matte lipgloss. I actually really love it! I don’t have anything quite like it in my collection. It’s very pigmented and glides on smoothly. It’s not very long wearing, but what lipgloss is? I love that it’s not sticky. Such a great product not to be passed up!

So, which one is going on your wish list?
