Gwen Stefani lipstick alternatives

.

Oooo, yes.  Some of the biggest beauty guru vloggers have been pushing the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collection for quite some time now.  This is a post focusing on the lipsticks in particular $18.

The colors offered by UD are nice.  But, are the colors that phenomenal and life changing?  My answer would be no.  So, lets take a look at some other possibilities of some drugstore brands that can give us the same feel at a fraction of the price.

Remember, it’s a sheer lipstick.  My pick is Wet N Wild Silk Finish lipstick called a short affair $1.49.  Not only is this a great lipstick line but this is also one of my favorite lipsticks that I wear all the time.

The Revlon lustrous lipstick in cherries in the snow is a deep pink red creme lipstick and a fantastic lipstick in its own right $7.99.  I truly feel Revlon the lustrous lipstick line is some of the best lipsticks on the market.

NYX EXTRA CREAMY ROUND LIPSTICK in hestia $4.  I didn’t see this color offered on the Ulta website.  But, I do feel it would probably be available in Ulta stores.

It has been said the Urban Decay 714 lipstick is a bright red matte.  As we all know there are no less than 10,000 shades of red lipsticks at the drugstore.  So, my choice for an alternative is the NYX matte lipstick in pure red which is actually a bright orange red $6.  Although this color does not seem to be offered on the Ulta website I do feel it would be available in store where there are more options.

For the record I don’t feel you can ever go wrong with NYX matte lipsticks.  NYX matte lipsticks are pigmented, easy to find and a great price.  That said we should not forget about the Wet N Wild megalast lipsticks sold just about everywhere that come in several shades of red for $1.99.

REVLON Super Lustrous Lipstick in the color Fushsia Fushion $7.99.  I feel this is a great choice for an alternative not only because I love REVLON drugstore lipsticks but because this particular Fushsia lipstick has finely milled blue glitter in it which makes it have a blue hue.  Such a great fun color!

This is also sheer lipstick by Urban Decay.  My pick is Wet N Wild Silk Finish lipstick called a nouveau pink $1.49.  Nouveau pink is a sheer hot pink shade and a great alternative to the $18 dollar Urban Decay lipstick.
