1. Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes $5.99

Maybelline now makes one of the best matte drugstore lipsticks you can buy, it goes on smooth and creamy and dries to the perfect matte finish. It comes in a beautiful range of shades from the perfect sandy nude to bright fire engine red -- you'll want one in every color.

2. Still Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick $24.00

All you need is a little swipe of this super bold, highly-pigmented lipstick for it to stay all day -- literally -- as the name says. To achieve the best classic red lip, use the shade "Beso."

3. Clinique Almost Lipstick $16.00

Clinique's Almost Lipstick has a beautiful glossy balm-like finish, and only comes in one color "Black Honey" but don't fret; the sheer berry tint looks amazing on all skin tones and has been a cult favorite for years.

4. NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Spice Cake $6.00

NYX Cosmetics has stepped up their game when it comes to lip gloss. This smooth gloss not only gives you a burst of color but it also moisturizes lips. Warning: The bold color will be sure to catch everyone's attention -- perfect for painting the town red.

5. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Color Balm in I Want Candy $5.00

One of the best drugstore bargains you will find! This jumbo pencil not only delivers a power-packed pigment punch, but this nude-tinted shade will flatter any skin color. Easy to apply, this balm provides a long-lasting surge of moisture all day.

What our editors are wearing:

"I don't use actual lipsticks -- I use Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Fig, which looks like lipstick but is more moisturizing."

Jenny: "I own and adore a zillion lipsticks, but one of my absolutely favorites is from Drew Barrymore's Flower Beauty line! It's called Rose Bud and it is literally the perfect shade of red for any complexion -- and I get complimented on it constantly when I have it on. It makes me feel sexy and confident, and the best part is that it is a bargain at $6.98 MSRP."

Marah: "I love Stila Stay All Day liquid Lipstick in Fiery (Deep Red) -- stays on literally ALL day and night. It makes me look put together instantly -- especially when I only have like ten minutes to get ready."
