Maintaining appearances has become much easier with the wide range of makeup products available in the market today. If we talk about lip products alone, they range from lip balms, lip stains, glosses, to velvet and matte lipsticks.
New products launch every other day but it always comes down to lipsticks vs. lip glosses. So which one wins? Keep reading to find out.
- Long lasting
When it comes to a long wear lip product it has to a lipstick. As it is creamier and packed with pigment, it tends to stay on for longer. If you have too many drinks it will come off pretty easily. Glosses on the other hand start off shiny and fresh but fade with time. However, some brands are now claiming to launch lip glosses that stay for longer.
Lip Glosses are usually shinier and don’t really have pigment packed in them, they are lightly tinted and give a softer look. Lipsticks on the other hand are extremely pigmented and opaque. Lip glosses are considered as a product used by teenagers while lipsticks are used by grownups.
- Price Range
Both lipsticks and lip glosses come in high end brands as well as drug store brands. We can’t really put a price tag on them as it varies from brand to brand.
Basically it comes down to your preferences. Some people like their lip products to be sheer others like them bold and dark. We couldn’t really pick one, any product that comes under natural mineral makeup we are up for it. You can always mix and match, wear your lip gloss over your lipstick or vice versa.
