For a dose of long-lasting color there is no doubt that liquid lipsticks are the way to go. They’re low maintenance, easy to apply, and are often as close to kiss-proof as you’re going to get — the real challenge is finding one that won’t leave your lips feeling drier than the Sahara desert. Luckily, some of the best formulas can be found right at your nearest drugstore, so you can rack up on the latest shades without spending tons of cash. We’ve put together a list of the best drugstore liquid lipsticks that are just as good if not better than some of their popular high-end counterparts.

One application of this lippie lasted me over eight hours without any need for reapplication, even through lunch! Plus, it comes in a large variety of bold and fun shades, so there’s plenty to choose from. L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lip Paint, Walgreens, $10
