A swipe of lipstick is undeniably the easiest -- and fastest -- way to totally change up your look, and, if you're anything like us, you likely have several different tubes within reach at all times. And while we totally get the appeal of luxury lipstick (and hey, we're not knocking it!) an extensive collection of those pricey puppies can do some serious damage to your wallet. Happily, the latest drugstore lipsticks are taking a hint from their high-end counterparts and incorporating all kinds of new ingredients, innovative technologies and fabulous formulas. No matter which luxe lipstick you love, there's now a budget-friendly option that's oh-so similar. Ahead, 10 of our latest obsessions.

If You Like  Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution, $34 ...
... Try Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick, $7.49

It used to be that any lipstick with a matte finish left your lips feeling dry ... USED to be. High-end brands finally figured out how to revamp their matte formulas to make them much more hydrating, and now the drugstore companies are getting in on the game, too. Case in point: This Rimmel steal, which, like the Charlotte Tilbury option, goes on totally matte, but doesn't feel chalky. Credit an emollient oil and liquid polymer that make for super comfortable, matte color that hugs your lips without drying them out.

The makeup is almost as crave-worthy as those red-soled heels, but if that's still out of your price range, here's the perfect alternative. Both deliver patent-leather shine, rich, bold pigment, and long-lasting wear.
