The right lipstick could be the cherry on top of your Valentine’s Day celebration. Whether you’re getting ready for a dinner date or looking for the perfect gift for your partner, lipstick may be the finishing touch that adds just a little pop and pizazz.
American consumers spent almost $200 on average for Valentine's Day last year, and if trends continue, that number could grow.
Not everyone is looking to spend that much.
To help you track down the perfect lipstick for your special day – without hurting your wallet – we’ve put together a list of lipsticks that cost $20 or less. Most are available on Amazon or from big box stores like Target, CVS, Walgreens and Walmart.
We’ve found some great Valentine’s Day recommendations using our Skin Deep®, which rates personal care products based on hazard and ingredient data availability. All products on this list have a green rating, meaning they’re low hazard. Or, they bear the EWG VERIFIED® mark, which means they’ve been reviewed by our scientists and have met our rigorous standards for health and transparency.
