this post on Nars lipsticks I got a lot of questions about more accessible & inexpensive options. A few weeks ago, after doing extensive research online, I visited the Walgreens Beauty Shop and started testing a plethora of drugstore lipsticks. I chose a few brands then wore each shade for a day adding more after I found a few lines that I liked. I started each the same. I put on Burt's Bees Original let it soak in a while, applied the lipstick, then blotted it with tissue. Some wore off in hours and a few stayed put all day long. I didn't have high expectations, and none beat the Nars. However, a few wore off evenly and were a great texture for as long as they lasted.
