High-End vs. Drugstore Lip Stick

liplingerie_main The latest trend in make up is matte lips. Matte lip stick has a nonglossy smooth finish typically with lots of pigment and a stay that last all day. Many think that this kind of quality has to come at a high price tag but that is not always the case. Some of the most raved about high end products include the Kylie Jenner lip kits, Makeup Forever, Mac, NARS, YSL, Dior, and a few others. This list of products range from fifteen to forty dollars. In my opinion, as a college student, paying more than ten dollars for a lipstick is way too much. Those products might be worth the money in some ways but when comparing them to some drugstore products the quality is the same, with a much more manageable price. NYX is a drugstore brand that is just as good if not better quality then the lipsticks worth forty bucks. NYX is my personal favorite drugstore brand. I think this cosmetic line offers great products overall in addition to their lipsticks. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and the Lingerie liquid matte lipsticks are the two products that I have purchased and the ones that I reach for the most when doing my makeup. There is over forty different shades to pick from. They offer the perfect nude to bright pinks and vampy dark purple, reds. The Soft Matte Lip Creams are five to six dollars and the Lingerie liquid lipstick are about seven dollars. Both are found at stores like Ulta or Target. The main difference between the two product would be the pigment of the colors. The Soft matte lip creams need two coats when applying to the lips but the two coats have just as much color as one layer of the liquid Lingerie lipsticks. Each last all day and do not rub off when eating or drinking. Hands down the best lipsticks for less than ten bucks. For sure gives the exact same look for much less.
