I've been facing that daily dilemma of what to wear on my lips of late: gloss or lipstick? I've been a strict lipstick girl for quite some time but lately I'm leaning towards gloss. Now though, instead of carting around 1,001 different products with me, I can take just one bargainous, multi-tasking one: BYS Lipstick & Lipgloss Duo ($4.95).
I'm not sure if you've heard of BYS before but you should keep it on your radar as it's one of the best bargain basement brands out there for on-trend colours. Its singular eyeshadows retail for $2.95 and are available in 137 hues. Impressive. Even more impressive is their pigment and the fact that they are easily as long-wearing as other more expensive brands that I've put through their paces. Oh and it's Australian. Booyah.
This newest product, the Lipstick & Lipgloss Duo, comes in 14 shades, but two stand out as being definite must-haves: Sweet Sugar Rush and Chilli Red.
