Budget Beauty: The Best Drugstore Red Lipsticks

Red lipstick has earned its place in the makeup ‘haul’ of fame, and rightfully so. With roots dating back to Ancient Egypt — Cleopatra herself was known to flaunt a red lip — the crimson shade has literally withstood the test of time. And while other lipstick shades have managed to capture our fleeting interest — nude, purple, pink — red will always have our hearts.

Now, this isn’t to say we think you need to spend an arm and a leg to get your glam on. The truth is, our love for scarlet lips doesn’t need to break the bank. To prove it to you, we compiled a list of our five favorite drugstore red lipsticks. Now you can take all that money you saved and spend it on something else equally important … like shoes.
