Because everyone loves drugstore shopping sprees
Ten bucks and some time to kill? Head to your nearest drugstore.
This week has been a lot of on the go. Cars, airplanes, would you believe me if I said bikes?
I've told you what's in my travel bag, you listened to my rant about comfortable travel clothes and I told you why it's ever-so-necessary to leave New York (at least once a month). But what I didn't unzip is my beauty bag: one that has come together after many Sephora impulse splurges, too many hours on Into the Gloss and even more impulsive drugstore buys.
The thing about the latter? The drugstore finds are the ones I keep coming back to. Maybelline's BB cream hasn't left my Chanel makeup bag since last fashion week (it's not going anywhere anytime soon), and my arsenal of lipsticks? I'm lookin' at you, CVS.
And so, because for some reason road trips seem like the perfect time to ransack drugstores for unnecessary items (there was that hat during a Walgreens pit stop last year), a list of trusty lipsticks you can find on the go (and for cheap!).
Revlon: I considered ending this list after the first bullet point, because honestly, Revlon lipstick is where it's at. Every time my best friend and I meet up, the first question (before many glasses of wine) is where she found her lipstick. It's always the perfect deep shade and incredibly moisturizing. Her answer each time? Revlon.
Your fall option: Caramel Glace: Kinda brown, kinda red, kinda perfect.
Maybelline: I'm always one for a red lip. When I'm wearing all black, it doesn't feel right to leave out a spark of (lip) color.
Your fall option: Are You Red-Dry: The perfect super-bright red you need this season.
Rimmel: One of my absolute favorite beauty tricks for quick, on the go makeup is dabbing my finger on the lipstick and gently patting the color over the middle of my lips. Try priming your lips with a bit of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream, then applying the color. It's the easiest way to get a natural look with some subtle color.
Your fall option: Berry Rose: The perfect shade for just-bitten lips.
