In all honesty, lipsticks are a great way to enhance our beauty. No matter which of these is your fix, be it a matte or gloss, a lip balm is your best friend. Here, some popular kind of lipsticks. What kind is your favourite?

Creme Lipsticks

Creme lipsticks give you some intense colour pop with rich moisture for a long-lasting pout. In comparison, Crayon Lipsticks are not as pigmented as a creme lipstick. Basically, you could call the crayon lippie a tinted lip balm.

Matte Lipsticks – For a velvety finish 

Who isn’t obsessed with matte lipsticks? These magic makers deliver bold colour. When playing around with mattes one can go lighter with their make-up, maybe just do brows and cheeks? You’ll be rocking it wherever you go, to the mall or party hopping. Moreover, mattes come super handy when you’re not in the mood to doll up. Throw your hair in a bun, paint your lips with a matte, you’re still a fashion hit!

If you hate matte lipsticks only because they dry your lips out, you’re NOT prepping your lips. Apply a lip balm before your favourite shade, watch how it glides then! FYI, Matte Balms also exist.

Lip Tints and Lip Stains

Lipsticks have a waxy base which is why those are easier to get on your lips. Lip stains on the other hand is mostly water or gel. It’s possible to not be able to find your classic red in a lip stain, lip stains offer fewer colour options.
