best drug store lip colors!




Okay y’all, I recently went to Walmart and scoured their entire beauty department to find the BEST lip colors / products. I was specifically looking for good fall colors, but also testing out products to see which formulas I liked best, how long they stayed on, how drying they were, etc! So, today I’m sharing some of my favorite colors I found for fall, but also really great drug store lip products you’ll want to buy in different colors year round because the formula is great.

Buying lip colors from drug stores can be tricky because you can’t exactly test them out in the store haha. So I wanted to make that process easier for you guys by taking the guesswork out! I bought at least 12 different lip products, tested them all out at home, and came out with 4 favorites that I’m really excited to share with y’all today!


First up is this NYX liquid suede cream lipstick. This was probably my favorite lip product out of everything I tried, and I will definitely be purchasing this again! I can’t believe it’s only TWO DOLLARS y’all!!! I typically strongly dislike liquid lipsticks because I feel like they dry your lips out and look crackly, for lack of a better word lol. But this one is amazing! I wouldn’t even classify it as a liquid lipstick – it goes on more like a gloss but it has such a rich pigment and stays on for HOURS! I bought this in two colors – “soft spoken”, which is what I am wearing in these photos – a really pretty nude/rose for fall, and “tea & cookies” which is a brighter pink color, but not TOO pink! I love both colors! It has a pretty matte finish / not glossy or shiny which I like for a more bold look!


My second favorite lip color I bought from Walmart is this Milani “keep it full” nourishing lip plumper. I am OBSESSED! This gloss feels SO good on your lips and it’s actually a lip gloss and lip treatment in one! This magical lip gloss boosts collagen production to plump lips AND uses hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture…for less than $10 y’all! I got it in the color “nude shimmer”. It’s a really pretty neutral / nude on its own, but it’s also really pretty to layer over ANY lipstick. It adds just a little bit of shine and makes your lips feel amazing! After wearing this for the past few days, I now want it in like 5 more colors. In the photo above, I layered the Milani gloss over the NYX suede cream lipstick!

My other favorite lip products I tried out from Walmart that I would highly recommend are all listed below!






I have become obsessed recently with shopping Walmart’s beauty section! They carry SO many of my favorite brands, and have products ranging from $2, to really high end options as well! I also really like how the beauty section of their website is organized because it’s so easy to shop. You can check out their fall beauty picks, or even shop by products that are available for 2-day shipping. Now you don’t have to wait for your next grocery store trip to make impulsive beauty buys lol because their website is a GREAT resource for shopping beauty products!

Have you tried any drug store lip products you love? If so, share in the comments below! Thanks for reading!
