We’re all aware of lipsticks being an integral part of our makeup–so much so that even while doing a no-makeup makeup look, we use day nudes. And no matter how many lipsticks we own, we always want more!
Besides having a shade for every mood and occasion, lipsticks are also available in a variety of textures that appeal to us. There’s more to them than just mattes and glosses–scroll down to read about them all!
Thanks to Kylie Jenner, matte lipsticks have gained immense popularity over the past few years. Everyone loves a statement-making matte pout that can be worn for a casual, everyday look and also an evening glam look. Matte lipsticks make a great option for work wear as well, especially nudes, browns and nude pinks.
Within mattes, there are liquid lipsticks that dry out after application. Although we love their texture, there’s certain amount to prep that you need to do before application to avoid over-creasing or chapping.
Creamy matte lipsticks lend a matte texture but aren’t as drying as liquid lipsticks. These are perfect for people whose lips tend to dry out quickly. We love the Lakmé Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Colour With Argan Oil Range that nourishes your lips while keeping them hydrated.
Satin or sheer finish lipsticks
This lipstick texture is considered to be one of the most common textures. They offer a balmy sort of a finish that need not be extremely pigmented. Use these to add a hint of colour to your lips–almost like a tinted balm!
PS: These require regular touch-ups as they can’t stay put for long hours.
This texture comes with a shimmer pigment and has a crème finish that glides on easily onto your lip. It makes your lips appear fuller, plumper and is a great choice to sport for an evening glam look. The plus is that it won’t even make your lips crease! Try the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer that delivers a shimmery, reflective finish on your lips.
If you thought that high-shine glossy lips were only a thing of the ‘90s and 2000s… you’re wrong. Glossy textures have always been a preferred option for women (especially with thin lips) who wish to make their lips look plump and big. These are highly reflective and are available in clear, nude and pink shades to top your usual lipstick. They’re also available in various colours that can either be worn as it is or on top of any other lipstick.
