9 Kylie Jenner Lipsticks Under $9 (You’re Welcome)
Kylie Jenner’s amazing makeup transformation has inspired thousands of beauty junkies around the world - she blossomed into a true mini-Kardashian with just a tweak of her makeup application. The main focus of everyone’s adoration are Kylie’s lips. They’re full, matte, pouty, and the color is effortless perfection. In this post you’ll see how you can get Kylie’s lip look for LESS!
If you don’t want to dabble with “dupes”, word on the street is that Kylie uses MAC Whirl lip liner, along with Velvet Teddy, Brave, or Twig lipsticks. Her look is very brown-toned rosy-mauve toned. Her look changes often but I think what people are loving about her look is how natural her lips look, without being totally washed-out nude!
Lip liner is a very important part of this look. Kylie overlines and completely reshapes her look with her lip liner - often she uses just lip liner all over her lips. The look is to create lips that look very round, with a top lip that is just as full and pouty as a bottom lip. Kylie rounds off her cupids bow quite a bit, and definitely lines the outside of her lip line rather than the inside.
Here are my picks for drugstore lipsticks:
1. Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick in Touch of Spice
2. Milani Color Statement Lip Liner in Natural
3. NYX Lip Liner Pencil in Mauve
4. Jordana Matte Lipstick in Taupe
5. Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Crazy for Coffee
6. Revlon SuperLustrous Matte lipstick in Pink Pout
7. NYX Matte Lipstick in Whipped Caviar
8. Wet n Wild MegaLast lipstick in Mochalicious
9. NYC Expert Last Lipcolor in Creamy Caramel
All of these lipsticks are different colors, but all will give you a similar look. Some are slightly more pink-toned, whereas others have more brown in them. The ones you prefer will depend on your skin tone and preference! Enjoy!

Dark, burgundy lips are a fall staple that anyone and everyone can pull off! I love lipstick trends because they’re easy to achieve without spending a lot of money.
On the eyes, keep it simple with nude eyeliner in the waterline and inner corner (Rimmel ScandalEyes in Nude, $4), and generously add mascara to upper and lower lashes (L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Black, $9).
Brows are the secondary feature in this look, so keep them looking natural yet thick with a pencil and tinted gel. Sculpt the brows to make them straight, and brush the brow hairs up and out for a modern look (Revlon Brow Fantasy, $8)
Now for the lips! Whenever you do a dark lip, a liner is a must. Go slowly when applying a dark lip liner, because it’s harder to clean up if you mess up! Color in your entire lip with a dark, wine colored pencil (Jordana EasyLiner in Cabernet, $2). Layer a deep red shade of lipstick over top, blotting between layers to build up color intensity (Wet n Wild MegaLast in Cherry Bomb, $2). Finally, get that cartoon-inspired lacquer shine by finishing with a matching gloss (NYC LiquidLipshine in Wine n Dine, $2)

clrvoyant asked: What type of eyeliner would you use to make a smoky wing?
Hello! There are a couple of types of liner that would work well for a smoked-out, winged-out, cat-eye type of eye! This is one of my favorite looks to rock at work, because it takes almost no time to do when I’m getting ready, and looks fantastic!
Your first option is to use a creamy pencil. Kohl pencils tend to work really well, as do “gel-like” pencils, because they are very easy to blend, but still set in place so they won’t smear down your face during the day. You will also need to have a separate brush to smudge the liner outwards, but if you don’t have one handy a Q-tip works just as well!
My recommendations for these would be:
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencils - $19 - Found Here
These are super creamy, and set really well after applying a couple layers.
Milani Liquid Eye Eyeliner Pencil - $6 - Found Here
Formerly known as “Liquif’eye”, this is my holy grail black eyeliner pencil from the drugstore, and the black shade is actually a great dupe for Urban Decay’s “Perversion” pencil, the blackest black ever!
You could also use a gel eyeliner to create that type of eye! Gel eyeliner is very creamy and opaque, and smudges to sultry perfection. My favorite:
Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner - $6 - Found Here
This liner is pigmented, easy to apply, comes with a brush, and is just as good quality as any gel liner four times the price. You will need a different kind of brush to smoke it out on your eyes, but it’s nice that it comes with a proper tool!
korijessica asked: Do you know where I can get the baby skin pore eraser?
Since the Maybelline Baby Skin primer is a relatively new product, it might not be in all areas yet. I’ve seen it at Walmart and Walgreens so far in my area, but I’m sure that it’s in other retailers as well! Keep your eyes peeled, it should soon be everywhere that Maybelline products are sold :) I have a review for this coming soon!
Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser - $6-$8
Review + Swatches - Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Gloss “Vision in Violet”
Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color
What it is: An opaque, brightly colored lip product with the texture and shine of a gloss.
What it Costs: $6-$9
Where to Get it: Any drugstore, supermarket, or beauty store where Maybelline is sold; Ulta stores, online
Quick Verdict: The line overall gets a Thumbs Up, but this shade only gets an “Ehh”.
Let’s try this again! As some of you may have heard, all the DrugstorePrincess social media accounts were hacked sometime in the past two weeks - and although I thought I was posting every day, it turns out that nothing actually made it to publication. Everything is back under my control now, thankfully, and so I wanted to make this post (which had already been long-awaited) a first priority! I hope you enjoy my cold weather and holiday inspired favorites and “not-quites”, and have a wonderful season full of joy!

As for the cranberry color, it gets a little more tricky to find one, especially at the drugstore level. I love that shade on the eyes.. it’s very fall appropriate and enhances every eye color. There are a couple affordable ones to choose from, and I also recommend trying out blush on the eyes. Some blushes look really gorgeous on the eyes, because many have pretty golden shimmer to them.
peregrinxte asked: do you know of any drugstore type foundations that have medium - high coverage and a more matte finish? i need a good one for school :/
Absolutely! Definitely try Revlon Colorstay foundation for Oily/Combination skin - it’s my most recommended product ever. It provides medium coverage that builds up really easily because it dries quickly on the skin. It also helps to control shine and provides the longest-lasting satin matte finish under $15! It looks natural and doesn’t feel cakey at all, and will totally last through the school day.
Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin - $9
Other good ones that are relatively inexpensive are:
Maybelline Superstay - $9
Sephora Collection Perfection Foundation - $20
Hope that helps you! And never underestimate the wonders of a good mattefying powder :)
