Top Ten Under $10 (Lips)

Top Ten Under $10! (Lips)

It's time for some Lip Lovin'. Wait that sounds weird....

Get out your $10 & Pucker Up Dolls we are off to hunt for a bargain!
1. Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain $8.99
These bad boys are identical to Tarte's LipSurgence Lip Tints! That is identical aside from the price! Tarte product comes in at $24 while their drugstore dupe is $8.99. These Revlon stains  have a light mint smell which also makes them refreshing & keep your pucker moist! They aren't super pigmented, but more of a tint, which I like because it's more natural. Be aware that the color on these balms is not long lasting so they will need re-application... fun & face none the less!

2. NYX Round Case Lipstick $3.99
For the price I don't think there is better quality - I find these to be better than MAC lipsticks, as they are smoother & creamier. I'm a big fan of variety and NYX has from subtle tints to major pop of colors. I also love that if you are into nudes they have a million shades of nudes... into reds? pinks? corals?? Same thing - they have so many options for each color, finish & preference! They are also starting to become more readily available at stores. In my area you can find them at Ulta, Harmon Discount, Sears & Afaze.  

3. jordana INCOLOR Squeeze n Shine Super Shiny Tasty Lip Gloss $1.99

Talk about a drugstore darling - I found these bad boys by accident while persusin the drugstore! They are a super gloss! They do take re-application but I don't mind since the result is so FAB! Not sticky & super shiny. They are also unscented.... beware though if you are not into shimmer these are not for you - the colored glosses have a lot of glitter in them... The applcator dispenses a TON of gloss so my tip for ya is to dot some product in the center of your lip then spread with your finger.

4.  L'Oreal Colour Riche LeGloss Lip Gloss $7.99
These glosses are gorgeous go-tos! These glosses have a bunch of regular colors that are always available & seasonally L'Oreal cranks out some limited edition shades.

5. Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter $7.49 & 
I luv these suckers! I love the moisture, colors & the dessert names! Though I did purchase some of the darker tones (which look great) I do suggest that you use the lighter shades if you are not willing to sporadically re-apply as they tend to fae quickly! These are perfect for people who don't like lipstick but want to have a hint of tint! 

6. L'Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm $7.99
More lip butters! These, however, are a bit different than the Revlon ones. Color & shine are not as intense, these are more like colored lip balms... comparable to Maybelline Baby Lips. While the Revlon ones pack some punch these are more "light" & delicate.... think "Oh  just ate some strawberries and my lips have been touched with the tint of the sweet fruit!" lol too much huh?

7. EOS Lip Balm $3.29

Little Balls of love! There isn't a single time I take one of these out of my purse that someone doesn't look at me and asks "what's that???" Aside from being intriguing, these balms are actually affective & yummy - be careful though having all the flavor and types will become an addiction! 

8. Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipstick & Lip Gloss. 
Starting at $6.99 

I've raved about Revlons lipsticks and lipglosses on my blog before & I still believe they are the best bang for the buck at the drugstore - lots of different finishes & endless amounts of colors!

9.C.O. Bigelow Mentha Supreme 2X Lip Shine $8.00
The only thing that sucks about this gloss is that it's a one of a kind... not a line... I love the way it smells, tastes & looks! It's sorta like eating a breath mint too!

10. Lip Smackers $1.75
People always laugh at me when they see me with Lip Smakers - but WTF this was the IT thing to have in middle school & I still can't find a better combo of price, quality& yummy taste!

What are your favorite lip products for under ten bucks?

Big Mwah!
