- Our top pick at the drugstore is Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick, a comfortable classic lipstick available in 20 varied shades.
I'm a full-blown lipstick hoarder. I don't actually wear much lipstick, or I wear very specific lipsticks that are more like lip stains, but I have dozens of nearly identical colors and find it very difficult to pare down my collection.
Even I, a makeup lover who compares products for a living, have trouble telling the difference between one purple or red cream bullet and another. Lipsticks of similar shades look pretty much the same before (and sometimes after) you apply.Drugstore lipsticks are a dime a dozen (not literally, but close), and when you can't swatch them for yourself, it's nearly impossible to decide what colors will suit you best. Texture-wise, I usually find I need to try a lipstick formula for a couple days to formulate a true opinion on how it wears.Advertisement
