Cheap Thrills: The $2 Lipstick You Need to Try!

By Trecee Hutchinson - 9:47:00 AM

Am I the only one who kind of misses wearing traditional bullet lipsticks?!

I know Liquid Lipsticks have been everything and every where the past few years, but I have found myself slowly turning back to my old favorites before the liquid lip era and have been obsessed with finding new lipstick favorites.  No matter what the brand or price point is, if its new and looks interesting I have to try it out. 

These NK Makeup lipsticks that I am showing you today have been in non stop rotation on my lips because I was literally shocked at how much I loved them!

The best thing is that these are $1.99!!

The Velveteen Lipsticks have a velvety matte texture that  glides on to your lips luxuriously without the worry of drying out. It has creamy texture that is hydrating while nourishing your lips in delicious berries and nudes. These ultra pigmented hues will not only keep your lips moisturized but give you that flattering creamy, velvety finish as an added bonus.

I picked mine up locally from a beauty supply store, but these can be purchased online here.

What I love


These last all day! Like, ALL Day. They lasted through meals, drinks and everything in between. They stain my lips a bit, but I don't mind because I don't have to touch up my makeup at all during the day. This lipstick is no fuss and perfect for a workday


Another great thing about this affordable lipstick is the pigmentation! It comes in 14 shades of mostly reds and dark nudes and offer full on pigmentation with one swipe! As you can see from the swatches, the colors are simple yet bold and not for the faint of heart


When it comes to lipsticks, comfort is my non negotiable. No matter how gorgeous the color, if it sucks to wear or flakes or peels on my lips I will not wear it. The lipsticks are lightweight and smooth on the lips. They make your lips feel like you have nothing on and that is essential for me personally

The only con for this the lack of color options. All of these shades are either a Berry tone or a nude, and not like a light nude, a vampy nude

  2. My priority for lipsticks is that they HAVE to be longwearing! I definitely need to try this if they last all day and are that cheap! Great post x
