Drugstore beauty buys: Get fall’s perfect vampy lip for less


The Bordeaux and deep wine lip trend is going strong this fall. While buying lipstick at the department store is great, I love nothing more than a fabulous drugstore beauty find. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez know this lip color is the key to a fall smolder.  Let’s hit the isle of CVS and get the look for less! With so many CVS locations in New Jersey, you’re good to go.

Liquid lipstick is really on trend right now and why not score an amazing formula at the drug-store?! The Brilliant Bordeaux shade by Revlon is gorgeous and the formula lasts a long time. $11.79 is a good price to get a celeb inspired beauty look.


A traditional lipstick is another way to create this look. L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge 10HR Lip Color in Bold Bordeaux is a rich shade that compliments your outfits! This is a 10 hour wear formula and glides nicely on the lips.  This $10.49 product delivers.


If your more of a lipgloss girl,  Almay has a wearable formula that adds just the right amount of sheen to your lips. The color & care liquid lip balm is beautiful for $6.49. This almost looks as if you’ve bitten into berries — stunning!


There’s a reason why the Maybelline color sensational lipsticks are a beauty aficionado fave. These lipsticks are really creamy and deliver opaque color with a few mere swipes! There is actually honey nectar in the lipstick and it’s a solid value at $8.29.


Upping the long lasting wear game is the Maybelline Superstay24 lip color. And yes, this lipstick is supposed to last 24 hours! I’m not quite sure how one would be up for 24 hours to wear it, but the point is that wearing a dark lipstick that looks amazing and doesn’t need touch ups make this a gem!
