Smile Colour Riche Matte Lipstick, $12 at Ulta
Want to own a tiny bit of Isabel Marant for a price you can actually afford? Check out her latest collab with L'Oreal. We already count ourselves fans of L'Oreal's richly pigmented lipstick formula and this fashionable update is especially chic, what with its stylish shade range and even more stylish packaging.
Liquid Lipstick, $9.99 at Ulta
We've become so accustomed to ultra-matte liquid lippies that a shiny one like this acts as a nice little shake-up. Plus, it certainly helps that it happens to be very creamy with a completely opaque, mirror-shiny finish.
Lux Lipstick, $7 at Ulta
These creamy lipsticks have great color payoff and an even greater shade selection (49 and counting). They're currently available in two finishes (matte and crème) and both look and feel much more expensive than they actually are (plus, we love the little stars embossed into each bullet).
Vivid Creamy Tint, $12 at Innisfree
These are pretty much everything you could ask for in a lip product — bright, shiny, long-wearing and non-drying. Who knew all those positive attributes could coexist in one budget-friendly tube?
Kiss The Frog Lipstick, $3.49 at Ulta
Who among us isn't a sucker for color-changing lip products? This adorable green-to-pink tinted balm adds just the right amount of sheer color to lips to add a little brightness to your look.
Truly Kissable Demi-Matte Lip Crayon, $12.99 at Target
We can never pass up a good lip crayon and this one definitely fits the bill. Though it has a soft matte finish, it's creamy and hydrating, thanks to ingredients like shea and muru muru butters. So pretty and easy to use!
Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick, $7.99 at Ulta
Sometimes, it doesn't get much simpler than a swipe of glossy lipstick — sheer enough to let your natural lip color shine through but still pigmented enough for a little extra oomph. Add in the fact that these happen to be very comfy to wear and you've got yourself a real winner.
Exhibitionist Demi-Matte Lipstick, $7.99 at Ulta
Between its lightweight, comfortable feel and a very editorial shade range (it includes everything from a steel blue to a Schiaparelli-worthy hot pink), you pretty much can't go wrong with this lipstick collection.
Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick, $7.99 at Target
With rich nudes with names like "70% Yum" and "Dose of Cocoa" coupled with a mouthwatering chocolate scent, you'll want to eat these gorgeous liquid lipsticks for dessert.
Prisma Chrome Lipstick, $7.99 at Ulta
Seeking something a little more out of the box? Allow us to introduce you to Catrice's chrome lippie collection. Each shade is packed with metallic pigments, so they're perfect for pulling off that futuristic robot glam.
Intense Semi-Matte Lipstick, $16 at Amazon
OK, so this one isn't under $15 — but it's still a pretty good deal, especially given the fact that it's vegan. Plus, the formula is great with a comfy non-drying feel and a retro-fabulous soft matte finish.
Lip Vibes, $7.99 at Ulta
How cute is the packaging on these? Each tube is different, with its own spin on a fun, tropical vibe. The line includes both matte and cream lipsticks, as well as two lip topper shades in brilliant gold and iridescent blue.
Melting Lip Clicks, $14 at Sephora
Looking for something a little more low key? These glossy lipsticks have a decadently hydrating feel as well as a forgiving, high-shine finish that leave your lips looking their best.
I'm Your Jelly Bae Matte Gel Lipstick, $5.99 at CVS
With a somewhat unique gel texture, this matte lippie is so easy to apply (and wear). It's non-drying and we love the K-beauty-inspired cutesy packaging.
Sure, it’s nice to indulge in a fancy-pants $40-plus lipstick from the department store every now and then, but let’s be real: We all love a bargain. And luckily, there are tons of new affordable lipsticks on the market at the moment, available in every color of the rainbow (and every finish too, of course).
