Lipstick is one of the essential products that complete our makeup look. Different shades of lipsticks bring out different feeling at different occasions as well. So, how is it possible to have just 1 lipstick??!!
Expensive lipsticks sure have amazing quality, but, for those with budget, it is impossible to purchase all those pricey lipsticks. With the recent rave of k-beauty, many Korean brands offer budget lipsticks with good quality that are friendlier to our wallet!
