Check Out These Lipsticks That Are Totally Affordable

Holiday season is inching closer each day. It’s already mid-November and we have Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner. I truly love the holidays, but my bank account does not. All my cash flow goes to one thing – gifts. Having a lot family and close friends to buy gifts for leaves me barley any disposable income for myself. I know this is the time of giving, and I should not be buying myself anything, but it’s nice to ‘treat yo self’ in the words of Tom Haverford. I love getting a new lipstick for myself every fall. Instead of dropping hundreds of dollars on a new dress, I can jazz up an old dress with a bold, fierce new lippie. I set aside a budget of about 1,500 rupees to drop on a fresh fab lipstick. Check out my top ten lipsticks that are so affordable you don’t feel guilty buying it.
