Despite our deep affection for all things beauty, there are some products we rarely justify splurging on. More often than not, you can find exactly what you're looking for at the drugstore — in color, quality, and finish — but at half the price of what you'd discover at a prestige retailer. That goes for things like mascara and blush, but especially lipsticks.
There are a lot of beautiful lipsticks out there that make you feel rich — even though you just had to justify that takeaway coffee — for the pure reason of just how high the price tag is. For some people, that's enough, but for us, it's not. Luckily, you don't have to chose between affordability and luxury.
