The Best Drugstore Makeup Lip Glosses

Lip is one of my favorites. I need my lips to feel hydrated and soft and I am willing to sacrifice staying power to save myself that dry cracky feeling (looking at you liquid lipsticks!). I created a list of some of my favorite affordable glosses that will make you look and feel fabulous.

1. Nyx Butter Gloss

Shop Now: Amazon

So I mentioned this one in our drugstore starter kit and that’s because its a holy grail product for me. These little glosses pack such a punch! I find the feel of this as a soft smooth almost vinyl feeling if that makes any sense. It feels very smooth and thick. I never find this gloss sticky and the gloss doesn’t move around on your lips. They have 24 shades. Holy moly. All are very pigmented and all are beautiful but my personal favorite is Tiramisu for a soft nude for fair skin. Try these ones out if you love your lips.

2. Milani Keep It Full Nourishing Lip Plumper

Shop Now: Amazon

Milani is the most luxurious feeling of all drugstore products and this gloss is no exception! The packaging alone is beautiful, but inside this gloss has a lot to offer. Hyaluronic acid is listed in the ingredients which means it will pull moisture to your lips as well as collagen boosters. It feels light and not sticky but the glass-like finish really shows the fullness to even thinner lips. Oh, and it’s #jeffreestarapproved

3. Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss

Shop Now: Ulta

This is the most affordable option on the list, and you would not know from the formula! This gloss comes in a variety of tones and they all leave a sheer wash to the lips. I like the pillowy soft feeling it leaves and it doesn’t feel too sticky or move around. It also had a nice subtle scent to it and my lips felt moisturized after use.

4. Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL gloss


Shop Now: Amazon

So lots of people still seek that plumped up look! Yet after my horrible experience with a Too Faced lip injections burn (ouch), I got scared of “plumping” glosses. However, think of this as more of the Buxom glosses where there is that cooling minty tingle, not a stingy burning feeling. I like the applicator of these it’s that old school squeezy pump.  This feels cool, smooth, and not at all drying.

5. Jelly Pop Juicy Gloss

Shop Now: Ulta

The new Jelly Pop collection by E.L.F. is everywhere and these glosses looked pretty standard, but I actually find them to be a fantastic everyday gloss! These also have a nice old school tube and they give me lots of 90’s vibes. They smell nice and are very sheer.

6. Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

Shop Now: Amazon

These are a big go too for me. The shade Sky Pink is a dupe for Nars Turkish Delight so I immediately tried that shade, and because these always seem to be buy one get one, I had to get another shade. These are long-lasting and leave a beautiful sheer-ish tint. I find these to be one of my best wearing glosses if I want it to last for a few drinks. Revlon consistently pumps out great gloss and these are a definite must-try!

These are just a small sampling of my gloss obsession and I dabble into high-end as well, but these are a few of the first ones that popped into my head when it comes to accessible and everyday glosses.
