Matte, gloss, stain, balm: learn your lip color formulas!

Being the beauty lovers that we are, lip color always has a place on our vanity. However, the wide variety of colors and textures available can make it really hard to choose among them! Knowing how difficult the world of glosses, stains, matte and hydrating formulas can be to navigate, we created this easy guide to get you glammed up in no time!

Matte

The latest obsession of women all over, this intense and velvety finish is highly sophisticated. Matte textures are often highly pigmented and favor those moments when you want a very precise, well-defined pout. We especially love this formula for bold colors like orange and fuchsia, but beware: this formula has a tendency to dry out the lips, so make sure to always apply a layer of hydration first!

Hydrating

Hydrating formulas can provide many different effects, from ultra-pigmented to pearlescent. This lipstick is guaranteed to glide over the skin, providing comfortable color all day long! We love the voluptuous texture and instant results.

Gloss/Balm

No, it's not just for teens! Glosses and balms have officially earned their stripes by livening up our lips. These formulas are especially great for Spring/Summer, when we're wanting something lightweight, high-shine, and available in fresh, semi-sheer colors.

Stains

Normally available in a brush or crayon format, lip stains are accurate and long-lasting. The "stained" effect means that if you love the "no makeup" makeup look, then this formula is your new best friend- it's almost as if your lips are naturally that vibrant shade of pink!

So which formula will you fall for? We'll take a few of each, please!
