It comes in various shades and flavours, it has diverse applicators, for instance, doe foot, brush, squeeze tube, etc. The application does not require standing in a mirror…what am I talking about? It’s nothing else but a lip gloss. What’s so special about it? What’s the difference between a lip gloss and a lipstick?
What characterizes a lip gloss?
Lip gloss is a cosmetic that should be found in every cosmetic bag because it works perfectly on a daily basis. It makes lips look constantly moisturized, even wet.
A lip gloss vs a lipstick
Both the lip gloss and the lipstick can be bought in a wide range of colours, flavours, and contain the same properties, for instance, moisturising.
- in contrast to a lipstick, a lip gloss does not require precision in the application; it can be used both with a mirror or, for example, on a walk,
- regardless of the colour, a lipgloss optically enlarges the lips. Therefore, especially women with small or narrow lips should reach for it. In contrast, dark lipsticks optically reduce the lips, so they should be avoided by women who cannot boast with full lips,
- lip gloss is suitable for any occasion, while lipstick is used when we go to a banquet or a wedding; but we can also use a lip gloss for such occasions,
- lip gloss and lipstick also differ in terms of consistency: the lip gloss is in the form of a thick liquid contained in the tube, and the lipstick is sold and as the name indicates, it comes in a stick. Apply lipgloss with a brush or sponge, and apply lipstick either directly with a stick, or tap with your finger, which will keep the colour on your lips longer,
- lip gloss may be coloured or colorless, because its distinguishing feature is the effect of shiny lips, meanwhile a colorless lipstick is nothing more than an ordinary protective lip balm,
- lipstick often adds years, and the lip gloss, regardless of the color, always gives the face a youthful and fresh look.
All over the world, a lip gloss was a true hit. It’s a very universal product used by young girls as well as older women. The cosmetic is easy to apply, it’s suitable for every occasion, and makes the lips appear bigger.
