CWP Beauty: Different Kinds of Lipsticks

I'm sorry this post is coming somewhat late, its been a busy day for me + my network has been acting up today. I use to think that lipstick application is the simplest makeup application until someone criticized my lipstick some months back **straight face**, the criticism made me want to better my lipstick and makeup application more (I have learnt to take criticisms lightly, no matter how harsh the criticizer only motivates me to do better). Last time on CWP Beauty, I shared 5 Smudge-Proof Lipstick Tricks You Need Today!, lets looks at the different kinds of lipsticks like....sheer, glossy, satin , matte lipstick. Makeup lovers know that these terms help them identify the right kind of lipstick suitable for their lips. So here is a little research...

This lipstick leaves the lips sexy and seductive with gloss and shine.  It will make your lips shiny, glossy and keep it moisturized.Satin and sheer lipsticks have a high oil component so they appear darker in the tube than they are on your mouth. However, These lustrous and moisture intense lipsticks need to be touched up frequently.. this lipstick is not Long Lasting and Offers a little coverage.


Matte lipstick does not make the lips look shiny. It has deep, opaque colors and has a natural look. It can also make the lips look thinner. This usually includes the most powerful and pitch-dark colors of lipstick. Matte lipstick usually lasts more than shiny and other kinds of lipstick. There’s no moisture put into matte lipstick


Shimmer lipstick has an opalescent finish and is a good choice for evening. It looks great under artificial light. It can make your lips appear fuller.


Gloss, a favorite lipstick of women with thin and small lips, is a lip enhancer which add a look of shine and lush to your mouths and enhance the dimension of depth. Gloss can be worn alone or with the traditional lipstick.


Lip stain provides a natural look. It is long-lasting and comes mostly in a matte finish. It is perfect when you are in a hurry and you just have a few minutes to do your makeup.
