10 Best Budget Lipsticks – Best of 2012


 We at Wise She work hard to bring you the reviews of the latest and best quality products. There is lot of thought and effort which goes behind when we review a particular brand.If we don’t think the brand is worthy enough to be reviewed then we don’t do it and refuse company samples too if we think they won’t help the readers in anyway.

I personally get all the shades from the particular new launched to benefit the readers so that they can compare the price and swatches  at one place. Wise She has grown so much that we now every year buy products and reviews worth lacs without compromising in the quality. Below are some of our favourite lipsticks for  in the drugstore brand category with best budget this year. We picked up everything from a launch if we found that readers are going to benefit from it and rest are done by the team members.

Never the less this wouldn’t have been possible without your support, love and trust and we promise you to keep giving you the best in the coming year too.

Below are the top 10 budget lipstick for the year 2012 reviewed on Wise She. You’ll see more of ‘Best of 2012 series’  in the coming days!
