Bullet lipsticks are still cool

Let's bring back these pigmented lip products

Remember the days where MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks were all the rave? I vividly recall the days where Velvet Teddy was the lipstick shade everyone was purchasing for that Kylie Jenner look. Guilty as charged, I was one of them as well.

Bullet lipsticks should be in every makeup pouch— You can't go wrong with this essential product. A creamy pigmented lipstick delivers intensity and brings your whole look (and outfit) to the next level.
