Ordering cosmetics from your neighbour may be a thing of the past, but that doesn’t mean that companies like Mary Kay are left behind.  They have some of the most awesome formulations for products, and their True Dimensions Lipstick is among the best because this stuff is weightless.

High vs. Low: Clinique’s Chubby Stick vs. CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm
