My favorite budget lipstick formula is ColourPop Ultra Satin. My top two favorite shades in this formula are Dopey and London Fog, followed by Molly, Echo Park, and The Rabbit.

I also have ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Lumiere. It’s the only shade in this formula I’ve tried so far, and I love it.

Colourpop Ultra Satin in Dopey
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lumiere and Cami
NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Milan and Cannes
Wet N Wild Balm Stain in Made You Pink
Jordana Twist & Shine in Honey Love and Terra Crave
Rimmel Colour Rush in Rumour Has It

My favorite DS priced lips:
1. Nabla Diva Crime Lipstick, favorite shade Arabesque.
2. L’Oréal Colour Riche Shines, favorite shade Map to Nirvana
3. Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss, favorite shade 107 Red.
4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, favorite shades Budapest and Monte Carlo
5. Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in shades 13 Marvelous Mauve, 01 Always Red

My favourite budget line is the Milani Colour Statement lipsticks, followed by the Maybelline Colour Sensational range and the Colour Pop Luxe lippies. The new Sephora line looks good too.

I forgot about the Sephora Lipstories when I wrote my post. I have three (Oui, Brunch Date, and Pineapple Express) and they’re all really nice. My only problem with this line is that they’re hard to find in stores because so many shades are sold out.
