As a fan of matte lipsticks I know it’s all about the formula, get that right you’re onto a winner. When I saw the Bobbi Brown Art Stick I knew that if that formula was the same it could be even better.
When I enter any shop that sells make-up I always leave with foundation on the back of my hand. Expensive or not whatever budget I’m on I like to test them & compare shades.
