Different Types Of Lipsticks And Textures

It’s not uncommon to be fixed on a lipstick shade whenever you shop. However, picking the right type of lipsticks, no matter what the shade, is the wisest decision you will make for your makeup’s best interest. With evolving makeup trends, we need to realize how important it is to include lipstick types  in our makeup routines to stay on top of the trend game. With time, the beauty community has also realized that picking a lipstick texture for your look also decides if you’re achieving your desired look. If you’re wondering how that works, read below for an in-depth look at lipstick types.

Matte Lipsticks


We start with the lipstick type that is the most popular of all - matte lipsticks. The easiest to carry through the day, matte lipsticks deliver deep pigment and have a long-lasting formula that gives you comfortable wear. Matte lipsticks are also non-transferable, which frees you from your otherwise frequent duty of touch-ups. These types of lipsticks are also great at defining your lips as they rarely smudge. Exfoliate and moisturize your lips always before using a matte lipstick. They are perfect for long parties, or occasions, where you do not have the luxury to constantly touch your lipstick up.
