The 19 Drugstore Lipsticks Winning Over Impassioned Reviewers

Whenever I'm mulling over a purchase big or small, I always get frustrated when the online retailer doesn't have customer reviews. It's so helpful to take advice from people who have already tested out the product and shared whether it lives up to expectations or not. When we're talking about items that have thousands of reviews, it's all the more reassuring. I don't care if I'm going to be out $5 or $50—no matter the cost, I want my purchase to be satisfying. Luckily, there are a ton of beauty lovers who are extremely opinionated about their lipsticks if you happen to be in the market for a little color. (Hello, Zoom meetings.) 

Below, I've rounded up lipsticks with excellent reviews from in-the-know shoppers. Just one of these drugstore lipsticks, for instance, has 3300 five-star reviews on Amazon. Cumulatively, these formulas below have recommendations from over 10,000 customers. Impressive. Scroll down to shop the best-reviewed drugstore lipsticks from beloved beauty brands

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
