Best Drugstore Neutral Lipsticks

I’m a bit of a neutral lipstick addict. Just take a look in my purse or makeup bag, and you will find countless lipsticks that look nearly identical. I love trying new brands and formulas, but I somehow always end up buying similar colors! Since I’ve been receiving lots of comments on Instagram lately about my lip colors (and because I’m pretty much a neutral lip connoisseur at this point), I figured it’d be the perfect time to share all my affordable favs. So without further ado, all the best drugstore neutral lipsticks comin’ atcha.

(#1) NYX Butter Lipstick ‘Pops‘ – This formula is really nice. It applies so smoothly and has a pretty satin finish. It is nicely pigmented but also pretty lightweight.

(#2) NYX Butter Gloss ‘Angel Food Cake‘ – This gloss offers medium coverage and is pretty smooth without being sticky. If you’re a gloss person but want some color too, this is a great option for you!

(#3) NYX Soft Matte Cream ‘Abu Dhabi‘ – This is one of my top favorite formulas. It’s a liquid lipstick that applies so creamily. It dries to a nice matte without cracking and looking too dry or cake-y.

NYX Lip Lingerie – The Lip Lingerie colors are my fav. The entire line is full of pretty neutrals, so you’re bound to find a color that you love! It’s another liquid lipstick option that dries matte. It is a little more drying than the Soft Matte Cream, but I still love them. ‘Bedtime Flirt‘ (#4) is a little more of true neutral, but if you want a little more bold color to your lip ‘Exotic‘ (#5) is such a pretty mauve.

(#6) Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor ‘Forever‘ – This is my most recent purchase and my current #1 fav. Although it’s marketed as a matte it really isn’t a true matte. It’s highly pigmented, applies so smoothly, and is not drying on the lips. I’ve found that it is long-lasting and smells ridiculously amazing.

Katy Kat Matte  – I received this as a gift and loved it so much I bought another shade. This is another that’s called a matte but isn’t a truly matte. The finish is a between a satin and a matte. It’s pigmented but just slightly less so than the NYX Butter Cream. The shades I’ve been rocking are ‘Sphynx‘ (#7) and ‘Catoure‘ (#8).

(#9) Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick ‘14‘ – This one was actually a recommendation from my girl, Kacie. She mentioned how much she loved it in one of her recent posts, and of course, I couldn’t help myself from trying another neutral. It has a pretty satin finish. I would say it’s the most highly-pigmented of the lipsticks and is so creamy.
