Drugstore lip glosses have come a long way since their early days! There were fewer brands, fewer colors and so many less choices in beauty products overall. Luckily, drugstore brands have really stepped up their game and we have tons of options in makeup! Some of my favorite drugstore makeup finds are lip glosses. Let’s be honest, no woman can have just one and finding a drugstore version of your favorite high-end lippie is like hitting the drugstore makeup jackpot! I picked out nine drugstore lip glosses that get my vote for department store quality minus the department store price tag. Check them out below!
1 Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss in Rosy Dawn 233
You can always count on Burt’s Bees for providing us with quality products, including drugstore lip glosses. If you like natural makeup and want a moisturizing lip gloss with a hint of shimmer, this one is right up your alley! These lippies come in twelve colors ranging from neutrals to reds and go on somewhat more sheer than it appears in the tube, but it’s still looks gorgeous on!
2 Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother with SPF 20 in Shimmer
Here’s another lip gloss with moisturizing properties but with the added bonus of SPF 20! Neutrogena is another trusted brand of drugstore makeup and their lip soother does not disappoint! This lippie is not sticky, super shiny, and lasts a long time. This lippie is also ideal to soothe chapped lips while making them look great!
3 Hard Candy Glossaholic Lip Gloss in Gorgeous
Hard Candy used to be a high end makeup brand and then all of a sudden it showed up in drugstore makeup aisles! Because of this, I kind of expect more from them, and their Glossaholic lip gloss is perfect for ladies who love lots of shimmer and shine. One of the standout features of this product is that it comes with a huge applicator so it’s easy to swipe and go!

Indulge your lips in this sensational lip gloss from Maybelline! Moisturize your pucker while giving your lips lots of shine with a pretty wash of color. Although this lip gloss isn’t the most pigmented of the bunch, it makes up for it by going on smooth and having a long lasting shine! Choose from a variety of fruit flavors and sweets!
6 Covergirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers Lipgloss in Raspberry Splash

7 Physicians Formula PH Matchmaker PH Powered Lip Gloss in Light Pink
Physicians Formula is one of the more innovative drugstore makeup brands and they certainly did an amazing job with their Matchmaker lip gloss! This lip gloss claims to sense the pH level in your skin and adjust in a minute to create your perfect color. It also contains light-adjusting pigments to adapt to your environment so your lip color stays the same no matter where you are!
8 L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lacquer Lipgloss in Endless Red
This lip gloss is unique in that it has pigmentation and is long wearing like a lip stain, but goes on like a gloss with hydration and shine. If you want a long-lasting lip color that is lightweight and won’t feel sticky, you’ve got to give this a try! Whether you prefer reds, pinks or neutrals, they have a color that’ll look great on you!
9 Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Nude Eclipse
Rimmel’s Apocalips has created quite a buzz in the beauty world! Rimmel describes this as bigger than a lip gloss or lipstick with rich color and a satiny shine. This conditioning lip gloss is available in eight different shades with pure color pigments. This lip gloss is available in drugstores in the UK and Ireland currently, but can also be purchased online through Asos.com.
I love lip glosses because they provide color, shine and don’t feel super heavy like a lipstick can. Lip glosses also get a gold star for moisturizing our lips while making them look flirty! Have you ever tried any of these lip glosses before? What’s your must-have lip gloss?
