Finding the best drugstore lipstick can seem like an overwhelming task. After all, the drugstore is packed with endless lipstick options, and it can be hard to choose the best one without trying them all yourself, which kind of defeats the purpose of finding a bargain buy. Luckily, our readers have left thousands of lipstick reviews for hundreds of drugstore lipsticks. We sorted through them all to bring you this list of the 11 best drugstore lipsticks.
When you're having a good skin day, reaching peak confidence levels feels just a little easier. And yet, all of us have days when our pores are unruly, our tone isn't its brightest, and blemishes pop like a cruel game of whack-a-mole. Foundation is the easiest makeup solution, but many women worry that wearing it will look -- and feel -- masklike.
While there's no good time for a breakout, the worst ones seem to come at the most inopportune times -- like when you're a wedding guest and bound to see an old flame or two, or worse, when it's your own wedding and you wake up to a blossoming red boulder under your skin. It's on those days that we thank our lucky stars for full coverage makeup and those who wield makeup brushes like a magic wand to banish zits. Yep, we're talking about YouTube stars who have bared it all in the name of showing us how to really cover acne with makeup.
Lip liners get a bad rap, probably because they make people think of that awful lined-lips-with-nude-lipstick look. But skipping a lip liner is a missed opportunity to make your lips look fuller and more defined. The best lip liners also keep your lipstick locked in place and prevents feathering. With so many options to choose from, it's easy to end up with a liner that doesn't deliver on its promises. So we narrowed them down to only the best lip liners -- as chosen by TotalBeauty readers -- to make you a believer.
Whether it's makeup how-tos or beauty product recommendations, we turn to our favorite beauty bloggers for their mad makeup skills and candid opinions about all things beauty. When they swoon over a dazzling new highlighter, we die a little bit too. If they're obsessed with a particular liquid lipstick, we run out and buy it, too. In other words, their opinions hold a lot of value to us beauty junkies. Which is why, when beauty bloggers team up with beauty brands for makeup collaborations, they're among the most highly anticipated product launches of the year.
For makeup junkies like us, Sephora is basically our version of Candy Land. Whenever we step inside one, we can't help but walk down each and every row and throw eye shadow after blush after concealer in our shopping baskets.
Take a stroll through Ulta and you'll likely leave with a ton of new beauty goodies to play around with -- after all, the aisles are jam-packed with beauty products that practically beg you to take them home. If you're in the market for a new mascara, then you have plenty of options at Ulta, even if you're on a budget. The beauty mecca has tons of options that won't break the bank -- we're talking $10 or less. And just because these mascaras are cheap doesn't mean they don't work as well as higher-end models. Find out which mascaras under $10 are most-beloved by Ulta shoppers, then go ahead and make that very modest splurge.
The '90s was a pretty memorable time for many of us. It was a decade characterized by extremely tweezed eyebrows, shimmer galore, dramatic pops of color and some pretty severe hairstyles to name a few. Perhaps you were in your teens or 20's fully enjoying the hottest trends at the time, or perhaps you were a little girl coveting the styles you saw on your big sister, wishing you were old enough to wear them too. Whatever the case, '90s beauty trends bring up some major nostalgia. From grunge to glitter and platforms to Polly Pocket, the '90s is an era marked by bold trends -- many of which are coming into play once again.
You've seen these products in your Facebook and Instagram feeds, on the vanities of some of your favorite bloggers and celebs. Nope, we're not talking about the semi-ridiculous, high-promise teas, but instead Younique Cosmetics. Much like Mary Kay's popularity in the '90s and early '00s, Younique has saturated the beauty market in such a way that it's hard to miss. What started out as pestering posts by just about every old high school friend and their mother quickly turned into a beauty brand with a huge following -- one that's truly worth double-tapping.
News alert: Brows are having a major moment. OK, to be fair, maybe that's not breaking news, since the focus has been on brows for quite some time now. But the latest take on the trend eschews those supersculpted "brows on fleek" that once flooded your Insta feed.
Not to be a Debbie downer, but it's a fact of life that with each passing year, time takes its toll on our complexions. Our cheekbones become more sunken in, our under-eye bags get darker and lower, and our skin turns sallower.
Just when you thought the kontour kraze was over, well-known brands like Hourglass and Kat Von D (and Kim K, duh) went ahead and launched brand new cream contour kits in their spring/summer/fall 2017 collections.
It seems you can't scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing an out-there brow look. The art, detail, and craftsmanship of the look is incredible, but then you realize that there's no way these Instagram gals are leaving the comfort of their bedrooms before wiping that crazy brow off. Or are they?
We all love ogling every new eye shadow palette that hits the store shelves, but when it comes to purchasing, it's hard to make a choice. Do you go with the warm neutral Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, or do you switch it up with some vibrant violets, a la the Natasha Denona Lila Palette? Just because they're gorgeous, doesn't mean they always perform. With that in mind, we've rounded up some of the top YouTube beauty gurus' favorite picks (and why they love them) to help make all those shopping decisions a little easier for you.
Liquid, cream, powder, cream-to-powder... the list goes on. Basically, highlighters come in every form these days, and they all have their pros and cons. When it comes to strobing on the go, however, stick highlighters can't be beat.

Every time New York Fashion Week rolls around, beauty enthusiasts watch closely to load up on inspiration and ideas on what will be the biggest hair and makeup trends for the upcoming season. While many of the fashion shows lately have been showing off barely there makeup and natural looks, other shows have gone full-on glam. Of course, for those beauty lovers who want to take the runway looks into real life, many of these fab looks have to be interpreted differently for everyday wear.
ColourPop is officially releasing a My Little Pony-themed collection, and it's a dream come true -- for fans and non-fans alike. It's a joyful explosion of metallic lavender, sparkly hot pink, and iridescent glitter that carefully captures the fun '80s aesthetic of the original "My Little Pony" TV show and line of toys.
It's fall, y'all! This means that, along with an updated wardrobe and skin care routine, comes the opportunity to switch out your old summery lipsticks in favor of a more autumnal hue.

Like most lipstick colors, terracotta can be interpreted in many ways. To help you find the best terracotta lipstick that suits you, we've rounded up 16 versions of the brick-colored hue ranging from warm rose to cool oxblood undertones. Ready to perk up your pout? Keep clicking to find your soon-to-be-favorite new lipstick.
Figuring out what eye makeup to wear is one of our biggest daily morning decisions (along with deciding whether it's a dark roast or an espresso day). Do we want a daring swipe of purple eyeliner or a sexy black cat eye? Regardless of the look we choose, we need the best eyeliners, from the perfect smudgy kohl to a precise, smudge-proof liquid liner, to get the job done.
