Getting a great lipstick that lasts long, has a pretty color, gives an even application, and does not dry your lips out can be a struggle – especially if you are on a tight budget. I hear you, here are some of the best lipsticks that I have tried under $10 that seem to tick all the right boxes.
1. Maybelline Color Sensational
Maybelline color sensational lipsticks have satin and matte formulas. It is one of my go-to’s. Red is my favorite color, a bold lip is usually the only makeup I put on. This one stays long after application, even with eating and drinking several times. I rarely have to touch up which is why it always stays in my purse without being disturbed out of its place. There are 18 super-saturated red shades, ranging from hot lava to deepest cherry. There are other color options too with variety in each.

3. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick
