We love saving money almost as much as we love our fave beauty products, so when we can find top-notch beauty dupes that will save us some serious mula, we get super excited. And just like every other pricey pro product on the market, there is a drugstore brand doing it just as good if not better. We've tackled mascara in the past, finding the best of the best when it comes to inexpensive but effective products, and now we're finding the best lipsticks. The items that made our list are not only intensely pigmented, they last throughout everything your lips will endure.

Yeah, we're feeling some serious lipstick love here.

Here are the four best drugstore lipsticks on the market.

1. For Intense Color

When it comes to drugstore brands, you can rely on Revlon for just about all of your beauty needs and lipstick is absolutely no exception. Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick ($8.99, Ulta) is intensely pigmented for a rich color that doesn't fade. And with a wax-free, gel formula, this lipstick offers you a seriously long wear for the amount of money you pay. We love it in the shade Poinsettia.

2. The Best of Matte

If we ever need an inexpensive beauty product sure to wow, we look no further than NYX. Just like its glorious liners and shadows, NYX's lipsticks are bomb and we particularly love NYX Matte Lipstick ($6, NYX Cosmetics). With a rich, non-drying formula, this lipstick is sure to go on smooth and last for hours on end. We want every shade, especially the color Siren.

3. A Color Sensation
Maybelline Color Sensational The Mattes Lip Color

Rarely do we ever find a matte lipstick so creamy and smooth, but also bulletproof, yet the Makeup Goddesses smiled when they gave us Maybelline Color Sensational The Mattes Lip Color ($5.49, Target). Made from three different oils and coming in many bold colors, this lipstick is a must for a long day. Our personal fave shade is Touch of Spice.

4. The Luxe Lip Look
Beauty product

Sonia Kashuk is one of our most loved brands for affordable eye shadow, so when we tried its lipstick, we were pleasantly surprised! Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color SPF 16 ($9.99, Sonia Kasuk) is not only made with Brown Seaweed Extract and marine botanicals to improve your lips elasticity and keep them youthful, it has SPF to protect your vulnerable pout from the sun's harmful rays. Adorable and super functional!
