Here is another addition to my list of favorite lipsticks – e.l.f. Mineral lipstick in Royal Red. I have been using this over a month now and I am thoroughly loving it. Definitely zero burning feeling, unlike what Revlon Colorstay lipsticks give me. Although it does not stay as long as my usual brands, it is just love that I can practically sleep with the lipstick still on lips. What is sweeter is it only costs P399.75 (approx. $9).
