Drugstore Lip Color Review

Everyone including me loves a good deal, especially when it comes to beauty products because I know you all have like 2-3 lipsticks MINIMUM in your purse right now! Haha I can't be the only one! I do wear a lot of lip color because I love it and it is the easiest way to look put together when you are feeling like a hot mess. So I went to Target...like every other day πŸ™„ and decided to do a post like this for you guys. One because it was fun and also so I could just buy more lip color! I just walked through the isles and picked up colors based on what I like! Here is what I ended up with.

COVERGIRL Melting Pout Matte-Current Nude $6.99


I love the color but the smell kind of bugs me. Smells a bit like plastic or something. It is soft and goes on fairly easy, but does not last very long. VERDICT: Wouldn't buy again.

COVERGIRL Melting Pout Gel Liquid Lipstick-150 Raspberry Jelly $6.99


I did not love it the first time I put it on but after you wet the sponge applicator it goes on so smooth and the color is bold and so pretty. It makes your teeth look so white which is always a win in my book! The color lasted about 2-3 hours for me and that was eating and drinking! VERDICT: I would buy it again if I wanted to find an inexpensive bold color!

REVLON Ultra HD Metallic Matte Lip color- 680 Glam $7.99


Love this one too! Smells like something yummy/fruity and goes on so smooth! This color is the perfect shade of pink too. It doesn't last very long, like maybe 3 hours or so, but it's texture, smell and color make up for it! VERDICT: Love it and would buy it in several colors!

L'OREAL Infallible Paints- 314 Spicy Blush $7.99


This one for me was the most moisturizing one! Went on really smooth and made my lips feel and remain soft. Pleasant smell too. It doesn't claim to be long lasting so I did have to reapply throughout the day. VERDICT: I like it and would buy it again!

NYX Lingerie- 02 LIPLI $6.99


I dislike this applicator wand. It is too skinny and hard. It is a matte color and I do love the color and it stays on really well! Mine lasted about 5+ hours with no problem but it is a tad dry/sticky if that makes sense?! VERDICT: I would not buy any more but I will use the one I have.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream- 18 Prague $6.49


Obsessed with this color! So bright and bold, stays on fairly well but does not claim to be long lasting. Has a yummy vanilla smell to it. VERDICT: I would totally buy this again!

MAYBELLINE Vivid Matte Liquid- 02 Grey Envy $6.99


Super thick and creamy, goes on smooth and drys matte. Great neutral color. I do not love it but it does keep your lips soft as well, but it left mine a tad numb/tingly without the plumping. Which is did not indicate it did. Pretty non-descript. VERDICT: I would probably not buy this again.

MAYBELLINE Super Stay Matte Ink- 65 Seductress $7.99


My favorite. I do not love the wand to apply it with but it stays on my lips forever! Which is what it claims to do! I wake up with hot lips as I call it! Haha. I am in love with this neutral color. VERDICT: I am looking forward to scooping up more colors and actually went back and bought the color lover πŸ˜‰

If you have any other favorites that I didn't scoop up let me know! I am always down for another trip to Target! XO lovelies! 






Best New (to me) Beauty Products!

Snow day or shopping day? You choose! Haha. I am not very good at sitting still so we may venture out later if and when the roads clear up a bit....maybe just to get a coffee or a treat! 

Most of you wanted to see my newest beauty obsessions from my Instagram stories, so here they are! This is what I am using right now on my face! I also love the contour slide from Maskara Beauty in the color Olive, and the eyeshadows: Sabrina and Penny. ( I can't link them but have a gal off you need one).

I also picked up some great lipstick organizers and clear lids for my MAC lipsticks....game changer! If you have something that I need to try, let me know!! XOXO

Fill the Cart Friday-MAC

Happy Friday! Whew! I have had a busy week and today I am going to slow down and get a much needed massage. I get a lot of questions about my lip colors and since when I link them on Instagram @ladyandredstyle they are not color specific, which is annoying, so I will lay them all out here! I do own a TON of MAC lipstick but they are not the only lip colors I love and use. So here are my top products I use from just MAC! Happy Shopping!



EYELINER- I use the color Graph Black. Always been a black eyeliner gal and this one stays put and is easy to put on.


RED LIPSTICK- The color is Viva Glam I. It is my favorite red lipstick and for me it compliments my skin tone and makes my teeth look whiter, which is a total bonus.


MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL- In the color Give Me Sun! I first apply my foundation, then I apply this with an angled brush under my cheek bones (from the corner of my mouth to the top of where my ear is). This creates more of a cheekbone!


STUDIO FIX- My color is C3. I put this on after all of my makeup is on as a light powder, and not everyday either, just when I am going out somewhere fancy! Haha It tends to give me more of a flawless finish.


LUSTRE- Two of my everyday favorites are in this category! 1.) Midimauve (favorite everyday color) 2.) Patisserie 

SATIN- In the colors: 1.) Media. 2.) Rebel 3.) Twig 4.) Captive

MATTE- In the colors: 1.) Mehr 2.) Men Love Mystery 3.) Velvet Teddy (new fav)

FROST-  In the colors: 1.) Angel 2.) Odyssey (favorite plum color)

CREAM SHEEN- In the color: 1.) Speak Louder

So, how you can shop these lip colors is by clicking the BLUE links and then just find that color!



Let's move on to the liners! To be honest, I did not start using them until this year when the guy at MAC insisted that I buy one, and boy am I glad he did, It really does make a huge difference! Even just using a liner with a gloss makes a huge difference.

LIP PENCIL- In the colors: 1.) Hover, goes awesome with Velvet Teddy lip color. 2.) Soar 3.) Boldly Bare (goes with everything)



EYE PALETTE- Okay, you can say it. I am so basic but I love this eye palette! 

So there you have it! All of my favorite MAC products. If you have products you love, please share them with me because that is how I find new colors and products to share with everyone too! Even if you are a no makeup kinda gal, lipcolor can do BIG things for you! XO Cheers friends!
