The Best Drugstore Lipsticks in 2020

Get lovely lips with the best drugstore lipsticks

There’s nothing like a good lipstick to make you feel beautiful. From the neutral shade you swipe on before work, to the classic red that serves as the ultimate symbol of confidence, the right lip color can complete an entire makeup look and make you feel like you’re on top of the world.

And let’s be honest, you probably are. While it may be tempting to splurge on a luxury makeup product, you should remember that there are plenty of drugstore lipsticks waiting to grace your beautiful lips… and they’re just as amazing as your favorite high-end beauty products.

Think of your favorite drugstore brands… have they ever let you down? Mira has ranked the best drugstore lipsticks with top ratings for hydration, smoothness, longevity, and more, and you’re going to have a few new ride-or-die beauty products once you’re done with this list.

Sometimes you’re feeling a shiny lip gloss, but just not into the idea of constant reapplication or your hair getting stuck to it for the next few hours. L’Oreal has your favorite shiny drugstore lipstick to let you sparkle with captivating, creamy color without having to layer lip products or worry about  stickiness… and it’s the best thing ever. Choose from simple nude and pink hues or pick sparkly purple if you’re feeling bold.
