One of today’s biggest fashion icons is Kylie Jenner. She may only be 18, but she is definitely beautiful and stylish. One of her signature makeup looks involves lipstick and liner. Jenner recently launched her own makeup line, which just includes lip kits as of now. The line was so popular it completely sold out, but should be restocked fairly soon. If you try to buy it from a reseller, it’s going to cost you big bucks. So while we wait for the restock and rest of the line to come out, here are some other great lipstick brand options.

MAC lipstick is a popular brand name. They have over 200 shades, so you can find the perfect color for every mood. The regular lipsticks sell at 17 dollars each, which is not to bad, but if you’re looking for a lower price, there are some awesome drug store brands that work pretty well.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick was an Allure winner in 2014 and 2015. It’s “Certainly Red” was a winner in 2014 and “Black Cherry” was a winner in 2015. The “Black Cherry” is in style right now and gives a bit of a Kylie vibe. The other colors in the collection tend to be more on the lighter side. On the plus side, it only costs around $5 at Wal-Mart.

If you’re looking for a color that doesn’t fade, you could try CoverGirl Outlast Lipstick. It lasts all day and has gotten good reviews. It comes in a variety of pinks, reds, and darker colors, so it’s a good mix. It can be found at pretty much any CVS for under 10 dollars. I really like the darker “Plum Fury” color, and for the reds I like “Red Siren”.

Ulta also has their own brand of lipstick that is affordable and has good reviews. It only cost 8 dollars and there are a variety of shades. Most are light pinks and reds.
