Despite our deep affections for all things beauty, there are just some products we can't justify spending double digits on. More often than not, you can find exactly what you're looking for — at half the price — at the drugstore. (We'd rather put that hard-earned cash toward a trip to Europe, you know?) And in the lipstick department, it's easy to find formulas that look expensive on the lips but go easy on our wallets.
Last year it was all about nudes (thanks a lot, KKW), but now we're seeing more of the combination of two timeless trends: matte and metallics. While it's easy to get both finishes totally wrong, there's something about this fresh crop of affordable goodies that got it all right. Even better: Every one of our favorites are less than $10. So get your ass to drugstore, stat, because we see a big vacation in your future.
