When it comes to lip gloss, you can definitely save yourself some money and go with your favorite drugstore brands. But you don’t have to compromise on performance, my favorite is the IMAN Luxury Lip Shine Gloss in a glittery bronze called “Edgy” that has great coverage and lasts for hours. The color is intense without it feeling gunky and thick. You can wear this by itself for a real gold tone or use it as a top coat over your favorite reddish hue for depth and glamour. Give your evening look the impact, not your wallet. At Drugstore.com for $9.99.
