Kmart brand lipstick – say whaaaaat?

You heard me – Kmart has its own brand of lip products! If you’ve been to Kmart in NZ or Australia since they did their cosmetics refurbish earlier this year you will have seen a section call ‘Face Eyes Lips Nails’ – not to be confused with the brand ELF (Eyes Lips Face).
