So, what sort of lipstick kind of girl or guy are you. Do you love the traditional, sophisticated old world Hollywood matte look? Or perhaps you like the playfulness of a shiny, glossy lipstick? How about the futuristic look of a metallic? Or the simple yet chic cream lipstick look?
What’s your favorite lipstick flavor/finish?
I’m all about shiny, glossy lips. Blame it on Japan! I’m absolutely spoiled with Japanese lipstick formulas that almost always have a soft formula with a high shine finish. I feel like we have too few shiny lipsticks here in the US! Lancome introduced Shine Lover Lipsticks a while back ago but they didn’t quite capture the brilliance of Japanese Lipstick. I miss T’estimo Lipsticks that had a dreamy, easy glide formula and a gorgeous shiny finish. Le sigh!
But yes, I typically love glossy lipsticks and if the aren’t glossy I’m making them as such by applying some sort of clear lipgloss on top.
I don’t really love mattes although I admit they have improved over the years and some are super creamy and easy to apply and look fabulous. But they still aren’t something I reach for daily. Creams don’t really do it for me, I miss the shine too much! And metallics, well, they tend to look frosty and odd on my lips.
So, glossy, shiny lips it is.
How about you?
Matte? Cream? Glossy? Or metallic? Which is your favorite lipstick finish?
