most loved lips

As expected, December is flying by—a bittersweet reality. Maybe the trick is using a countdown to Christmas calendar like we did when I was a kid. I remember each morning going to the calendar and moving the star up one more day—a day closer to Christmas! Sometimes it almost seemed agonizing how slowly the days passed, as we waited for the 25th with such anticipation. But something has changed as I have grown older. Between holiday parties and secret Santa shopping, I find myself hoping time will somehow slow down, if for no other reason than my packages arriving before the gift exchange [fingers crossed!].

I write this with the assumption I am not the only one feeling the pressure, the pressure to shop, wrap, prep and primp. And not only is this the season of giving, it’s also one of gathering. That being said, I am sharing three of my favorite drugstore lip color products—perfect for wearing and wrapping this holiday season [I like to think of lipstick as stocking stuffer gold]. What I love about drugstore cosmetics are their accessibility and affordability. So, without further ado, let’s get into it:

e.l.f Matte lip color in Rich Red

Why I love it: Vibrant, smooth and long-lasting. This is definitely one of my go-to lip products. It’s a true red hue and won’t turn pink on you throughout the day. Every girl needs a ruby red lip product, and with a $3 price tag there is no denying this is a makeup must-have.

Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Black Cherry

Why I love it: Rich, dark and loyal [yes, I am still talking about lipstick here]. I love using this color to edge-up a more feminine look, or intensify a darker monochromic outfit. It goes on like butta and is in it for the long haul so you won’t have to worry about constantly reapplying.
Maybelline Color Sensational matte lip color in Lust for Blush

Why I love it: Soft and subtle. This is undoubtedly one of my most recent favorites. Its light pink hue combined with the matte finish make this the perfect product for everyday wear, and adds just the right amount of flare to a neutral colored clothing palette.

And there you have it—three of my favorite, budget-friendly lip colors just begging to be worn this season and beyond. With Christmas Eve just one week away, I say good luck to all my procrastinating counterparts! Cheers to the season of giving and looking glam doing it, clink!
