Lipstick So Many Choices

Lipstick is a fashion accessory that some women just can’t do without. Lipstick has been the one cosmetic staple that most women have relied on. It’s not uncommon for a woman to put on lipstick before anything else and in the case of being in a hurry many women forego mascara or blush and reach for their lipstick. Although the term “lipstick” clearly means a cosmetic that is applied to the lips, there are several different types of lipsticks available for purchase. Each woman has her own unique preference when it comes to the different types of lipsticks and which one suits her best. One common ingredient found in many different types of lipsticks is a moisturizer. This is important because lips can often become dried out because of the weather or the lack of humidity in a building. Incorporating a moistening agent into lipstick allows the woman to wear it all day without worry that her lips will become dry or chapped. Another important ingredient in many different types of lipsticks is sunscreen. As much damage as the sun’s rays can cause to skin they can cause just as much damage to lips.

Choosing The Perfect Gloss For Your Lips

Choosing The Perfect Gloss For Your Lips

One should remember that perfection is ten percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. So searching for the lip gloss that best suits the lip color and lip tone one has is an endeavor that requires patience, perseverance and a little (just a little) bit of luck.

There are numerous brands of lip gloss and the prices of each vary. A $7 lip gloss bought at a neighborhood drugstore is not necessarily inferior in quality compared to an $18 Poole lip gloss compact. Lips could only appreciate the texture, smoothness, silkiness of the gloss or feel its heaviness, stickiness, or icky-ness. Little do lips care about how much the lip gloss cost or where it was bought. Though high-end lip glosses at times do offer a super-glossy feel that it almost glides delightfully on the lips, there are also not too expensive lip glosses like Bonne Bell which could give the high-end brands a run for their money. A label is not everything. Sometimes, a great find could be found in dollar stores. Try your luck, win or lose, its all worth a dollar. But, if buying in a drugstore or at Wal-mart, make sure that extensive research has been done on the lip gloss product you are considering of buying since drugstores offer no testers.
