The lipstick brand that Exudes confidence has finally made its way into a storefront. Previously, Exude Lipstick was only available on the company's website, but now it will be available at Manhasset, New York's Beauty Bar (as well as on BeautyBar.com).
Exude was chosen by InStyle Magazine as the top lipstick of 2012, has been featured on the Today Show, and comes in nine beautiful colors (lip gloss available in 5 colors). The brand has done what no other lipstick out there has ever thought of: created a precise crystal applicator (shaped like a traditional lipstick) which dispenses the perfect amount of pigment onto your lips. The permanency of the applicator ensures the lipstick never loses its shape! So there's no need to drag along lipstick brushes like when a typical lipstick goes wonky. Genius!
