2-Lipstick and Lip Pencils

Some women just can’t survive without lipstick. They have all the signatures shades and keep on updating their collection. Most of the shades lipsticks don’t even last for a few months if not kept with care. However, if you keep them organized and clean, your lipsticks can make up to 365 days.
