Choosing the best Shine Lipstick depends on the type of gloss or sparkle you want as well as the best color for your skin tone.
Also keep in mind when choosing shiny lipstick that it may be more suitable for causal days or evenings out rather than workdays. You could go to makeup counters and try the testers on the back of your hand to give you an idea of how sheer the color is and how shiny the lipstick is, as well as whether or not it suits your skin tone.
Choosing Shine Lipstick
The type of lip product in a mascara-shaped container with a sponge-tipped applicator included is often the glossiest kind of shine lipstick. This ultra-glossy lipstick may not be best for conservative or traditional offices, as it may just be too slick, sparkly or bright in its shine. Again, it may be a good idea to try a tester version of the product on the back of your hand to give you an idea of how the lipstick is likely to look before you buy it. Unlike traditional tube-shaped lipsticks that are turned up to apply directly on the mouth, the glossy sponge-applied products may not be easy to blot to create a more subtle look.
Shine lipstick sold in traditional tubes may have a thicker, richer color to it if the product is matte with a moisturizer added, but an almost transparent frosty look if it’s sheer. Matte moisturizing lipsticks usually only have a subtle shine to them. If you like the natural color of your lips, you may just want to use a sheer, tube-style lipstick to create a natural-looking shine. Sometimes, the names on the different shiny lipstick types are helpful. For instance, one labeled “shimmer” is likely to be subtler and frostier than one marked as “high gloss,” which will be super-shiny.
If you’re looking for a shiny look is a moisturizing lipstick, then you should read the ingredients of the products to look for added moisturizers. It’s also a good idea to look for shine lipstick labels that say the color is long-lasting. Matching lip liner to any type of shiny lipstick is crucial; it can help keep the color within the lines. A small mirror kept with the lipstick is convenient and will help ensure that you can get a closeup view when you apply the product. Shine lipsticks can be difficult to apply properly; if even a little goes past the lip liner to end up outside your mouth, it can catch the light and look unattractive.
