Author: Danielle Cauchi Date Posted: 10 January 2023
As the day progresses, our makeup is challenged by a bunch of external factors that cause it to fade such as sweat, oil build-up and the weather conditions. Without fail, the makeup product that almost always wears off first is our lipstick, especially if we have gone out for a meal. Of course, we can remedy this by packing our lipstick into our makeup bag for touch-ups throughout the day, but it is certainly annoying having to constantly check ourselves and reapply.
In 2023, there are countless lipsticks on the market that promise long lasting wear from a couple of hours up to a full day and the best part about this is that some of these lipsticks are drugstore lipsticks made by budget-friendly brands who aim to deliver quality results at affordable prices.
