2. Lip Gloss:
Gives Instant Shine and glam to your lips. Basic lip gloss is a liquid formula and has less staying power than lipstick. You will have to keep reapplying the gloss to your lips. Color choices run from clear to black. It’s applied to bare lips or on top of already applied lip makeup (lip liner alone or lip liner plus lipstick combination). Application can be from the tube with its own applicator or a lip brush.
3. Sheer Lipstick:
Gives a very natural , moist result. It’s great choice for every day use. No lip liner is needed. To apply, tap on with a lip concealer brush or your finger.
4. Semi-matte Lipstick:
Gives more coverage as it has more color pigments than sheer lipstick. Lip liner is optional. Apply with a lip brush or concealer brush.
5. Cream Lipstick:
The color pigments are tight and give full coverage but still a beautiful smooth, satiny feel. Lip liner is needed. Apply with a lip brush.
6. Matte Lipstick:
They show no signs of glimmer what so ever. They are colour intensive and last longer than most other lip products. They also gives the most coverage but have a slightly drying effect on your lips as they do not have much of a moisture content. Lip liner is needed. Apply with a lip brush.

Lip satins are the newest in the line of the lip colour range. These are more like markers with a more fluid composition.

With these products of course you will need to moisture and exfoliate more often. Apply with a lip brush.
8. Lip Liner:
Liners are the products that we use to demarcate the the outer line of our lips. Make sure that your liner is as close as possible to the color of your lipstick. Don’t over line lips with dark liners because they look unnatural. Line your lips, fill your lips with lipstick. Applying a gloss on top will make your lips look bigger. The perfect liner is one that glides perfectly onto your lips and is not very rough when using.
