Marsala Inspired Lipsticks - Drugstore Edition

Happy Monday!  The nerd in me over the weekend rummaged through my lipstick stash for "Marsala" hued lipstick shades that I currently own!  Yes, I took the time and effort to swatch and compare because I am actually excited with this year's Pantone Color of the year!

It must be the 90's blood in me!  Well, I'm really an 80's baby but I definitely started to wear lipstick during the 90's!  Can I just say Late 90's para hindi mukhang matanda?  *Laughs*

Marsala is described as earthy wine red color.  In my eyes, Marsala is a deep brownish reddish shade that works for most women who likes to wear red but do not have the guts to do so!  And can I add how this shade can add "warmth" to most complexion?

Now here are my picks!  And the best part about my picks is how budget-friendly they are!

These shades are not completely "Marsala" to other skin tones but they work for me!  I chose various finishes from glossy, creamy to matte!


Based from swatches above, the closest would probably be Wet N' Wild A Currant Affair!  Maybelline Glam 13 comes in second.  The other shades may look "off" based from my swatches but upon application, the combination with my natural lip color can actually turn the lipstick into a different shade!
