Lipsticks have taken a back seat since 2020, all thanks to the coronavirus lockdown and face masks. And even though we'll be wearing masks for the unforeseeable future, lipsticks are making their way back in the beauty game.
Ladies are opting to go matte so that lipstick stays in place for a long period of time, even after removing the mask.
