Review - Antipodes Lipstick


The average woman spends $1,780 in her lifetime on lipsticks. I have heard many false things in my life but after hearing this statistic I can conclude that this is utter bullshit. With that money you could only buy 63 Mac lipsticks in a lifetime which seems dismal in the age of rampant consumerism.

I say if we are going to spend the money why not spend it on Antipodes lipstick instead. So natural you can eat it (no joke) it is pigmented, moisturising and pure.
