The leaves are changing colors (well, maybe not here in Houston) and it’s that time of year to swap out your summer lipsticks for some new fall shades. I don’t know about you, but I love fall makeup – it’s my favorite!
In today’s post, I have compiled a list of 10 best drugstore lipsticks that you should be wearing this season! We’ve got a range of formulas and finishes, including a few glosses and a lip liner. I also made sure to include some wearable options for those that want to dip their toes into more bold colors. I’ve got a lot of our favorite brands, and a wide range of shades to complete your fall look!
10 Drugstore Lipsticks for Fall
Are you ready to find a fabulous lip color on a budget? Let’s dive into the best drugstore fall lipsticks! Along with product links, I am also including pictures of the lipsticks on me (zero filters on the photos!).
1. Maybelline Lifter Gloss in Sand
The Maybelline Lifter Gloss is one of my favorite gloss formulas of all time! They’re formulates with hyaluronic acid and instantly gives a hydrated look with a single swipe. The shade “Sand” is a beautiful warm deep neutral with some flecks of shimmer, but is very sheer and wearable! Worn alone it’s very minimal, but will look gorgeous on top of a deeper lipstick, too!
2. NYX Butter Gloss in Ginger Snap
The NYX Butter Gloss is another cult favorite lip product from drugstore brands. They have a wide range of shades, and it’s under $5! The shade Ginger Snap is the prettiest brown gloss that can be worn alone or on top of a liner/lipstick. I absolutely fell in love with it upon first application!
3. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Almond Hustle
The Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick is a creamy formula with shea butter. They have a beautiful range of shades including rich plums, classic reds, and nudes. This is a good lipstick formula for nearly everyone! If you want smooth lips, this is for you. The shade Almond Hustle is the perfect color to channel your favorite pumpkin spice latte. It has just the right amount of boldness without being too much! I can’t get enough of this shade and formula!
4. Revlon Super Lustrous Glass Shine Lipstick in Rum Raisin
The Revlon Super Lustrous Glass Shine Lipstick is a newer launch, and it’s absolutely gorgeous! If you like the regular Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, you are going to love these. They have almost like a lip balm feel to them, a lot of shine, and lovely color pay off! I’m loving the shade Rum Raisin for the fall season. It’s an awesome way to wear a deeper shade, but in a natural formula.
5. NYX Suede Lip Liner (multiple shades)
The NYX Suede Lip Liner has a lot of beautiful neutral fall tones. They’re such a great quality product with full coverage pigment. I love the shades Softspoken, Sandstorm, and Spice. You can wear these alone for a matte look or layer a gloss/lipstick on top. I chose a deeper nude shade for this post so you could have something in your collection for everyday wear. I also highly recommend the shade Sand Beige in the mechanical pencil for a deep neutral!
In the photo below, I’m wearing the shade Sandstorm!
6. Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon in Accept a Dare
If you’ve never tried the Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayons, you’re missing out! They’re some of the best lipsticks I own. These crayons have a matte formula, comfortable wear, creamy texture, and amazing staying power. The crayon tip also makes for an easy precise application. They have a wide range of shades (and are always coming out with new colors), but for this post I had to mention the shade Accept a Dare. It’s the perfect beautiful berry shade for fall.
7. Maybelline Ultimatte Lipstick in More Rust
The Maybelline Ultimatte Lipsticks are some of my favorites! If you missed it, I wrote an entire blog post swatching the whole collection so make sure to check that out! If you want a matte lipstick that does not feel drying at all, you’ve got to try these. The shade More Rust is the perfect fall shade – not too orange, not too red! Pair this with a button up and a blazer with jeans, or a black dress. Perfection!
8. Maybelline Ultimatte Lipstick in More Berry
The Maybelline Ultimatte Lipstick in More Berry is the perfect berry tone! If you are looking for vampy shades but don’t want to go too dark, this will be your jam. The creamy formula and matte finish is gorgeous for fall, as well. I just love this bold color!
9. Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Ruler
The Maybelline SuperStay Matte Inks are my top favorite long wearing lipstick of all time! My favorite lip color fall in this line is Ruler. It’s got beautiful berry tones without being too deep and vampy. You will love love love this one… it looks good on so many people!
10. Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Cocoa Connoisseur
The Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Cocoa Connoisseur is the boldest one on this list, but it’s such a good one. If you’re looking for a rich brown, look no further. It’s perfectly warm and chocolatey with a bit of a red undertone. It’s absolutely gorgeous! If you want to take a chance on something pretty different, try this one!
There we have it! Which shade is your favorite of the bunch? I know any of these will look incredible on a wide variety of beauties!
