Depending on what you’re looking for, you may be able to buy just one tube or double it up with a couple different brands to get the lashes you like best. READ MORE

Drugstore red lipstick is nothing to shake a stick at. Drugstore reds can deliver with beautiful, highly pigmented color and smooth texture pay off comparable to or exceeding what some department store brands offer.
