‘Okay, this year is going to be a good year’ we croon as we slide right into 2018. Bigger goals, wiser decisions, and oh, an even better beauty  regime. But then again, that super dope New Year’s party you attended totally narrowed those zeroes down and your bank balance is perilously low.
But hey, why fret over all that jazz when you’ve got the perfect lipstick to brandish, right? We hear you! So to make things a little easy, we have selected the best drugstore lipsticks that are sure to satisfy your tastes (and your budget).These brilliant finds are worth every penny. Some of them, seriously underrated. Oh, and they’re all under Rs. 200. Yeah, you can thank us later. Now let's go lippie dipping….

Miss Scarlet

Famously known as one of the most affordable lipstick brands in India, Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lip Color is pretty insane for what it promises. Once you swipe on this super-matte (but comfortable) lipstick, it's not going anywhere for hours. And the shade Selfie Red is to die for! If you slant towards a fairer skin tone, pop on a crisp color like Prom Pink and try not to drool.

Bali Blotch

Presenting twelve killer fall shades, the Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick is literally gold for the beauty (broke) soul. And if you think this is a crazy bargain, this super lippie also comes with a rich dose of Macadamia Nut oil that contains antioxidants to hydrate your lips. Hell yeah, we call that a steal! Oh, and if you had to pick a shade, we recommend you go for Blushing Bali. Startling on all skin tones!

Splash Orange

If you haven't had a chance to grace your lips with the glory of the Organistick Organic Lipstick, we strongly recommended you start off with this fabulous tint called Rusty Orange. Born from a lush harmony of Shea Butter, Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil, this all-natural lipstick leaves a hydrating and lustrous smear of orange on your lips.

Return Of The Nude

All hail the NELF USA The Miami Matte Lipstick- Shy. There isn't necessarily anything revolutionary about nude lipsticks for fall, but this particular stick surely packs a punch. The formula goes on glossy and then turns matte, and it absolutely refuses to budge. Less is more, and we all know it. But this beauty blessing summons the power of nude so well, it’s only going to get smackalicious from here on.

Teen Queen

Remember when Rihanna wore that violet lipstick and everyone freaked out? Well, yeah. Imitate Ri Ri’s super fierce statement with something that costs way less that you’d imagine. Enter Teen Beauty Lipstick - Boyfriend Stealer. This shade is a dead ringer for those bold, vibrant and totally badass shades flooding our insta feeds every other minute. Warning: this shade is very, very sexy. Oh, and you might just steal someone’s boyfriend after smearing this on. Just saying.

Peach Please

Prefer a more low-key lipstick this fall? The Iba Halal Care Pure Lips Moisturizing Lipstick- Neon Peach is your best bet.This lipstick almost feels just like a hydrating balm, but it gives your lips a hint of color and whole lot of shine. Some might even mistake it for a gloss when you're wearing it. This under-the-radar beauty brand might just be your new fave. We are in LOVE!

Planet Coral

Hello Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon - Candid Coral! This brilliant release combines a gorgeous, rich pigment with natural oils to heal and protect lips while making you look like a dream. It's no wonder this Lakme beaut is such a hit. Kickstarting your year with some coral love sounds just right to us.

Berry Brain

If you're looking for a lipstick that delivers pigment, moisture and staying power, stock up on the Coloressence Mesmerising Lip Color- Light Plum. This fresh fall color is super hydrating (thanks to Coriander and Basil extracts), and gives lips the perfect subtle shine. To enhance your look, pair this up with a bare face and oodles of mascara. And you thought you were too broke to pucker good this year? Well, think again.
