LR is great. I use it for all my photos. It is my catalog and basic adjustment tool.

But there are things that LR doesn't that PS does.

Adjustment of odd-shaped areas or specific features of an image


Focus stacking


Swapping heads

Placing labels on portions of a photo or annotating an image

Making signs, logos.

About 90% of my images don't see PS. The other 10% that need PS are sent to PS directly from LR. When the work is finished in PS, saving it sends it back to LR automatically. I then have the original and the PS-edited image both in the LR catalog.

LR and PS are complementary, not exclusive.
