I have already mentioned so many new lipstick launches here, here and here, but today let’s take a look  at even more new and  awesome releases.

And even if you do not need anything, theses days the brands create such beautiful images, videos and the stories behind each product that you feel like you have to indulge. Very clever strategy.
