With an extreme amount of shine and glitter, this finish is suitable for a night’s out! It delivers fuller and sexier lips which brighten up the face. The downside, it has to be retouched frequently and leaves a sticky sensation which may not appeal to many. but it has to be retouched frequently.

For a long-lasting au naturel look, opt for lip stains as it temporarily dyes your lips and fits nicely to the folds of your lips. It's mild at first but the pigment is buildable, so you can paint it to your desired tone. Most are multi-purpose too and can be applied to your cheeks and even eyes.

Now that you know all about the different finishes you can get, here are some quick tips to make your lipstick lasts longer.

1.Prep your lips
Moisten your lips by applying lip balm. Make it a habit as this ensures that the canvas (your lips) is not chapped which result in smooth application.

2.Line it up!
Before applying the lipstick, line your lips with a lip liner that is similar to the lipstick colour. A nude one will do just as good. Lining your lips create a barrier which prevents the colour from bleeding.

3.Fill them in!
Fill in your lips with the same lip liner. It functions as a primer, making your lip colour lasts longer and making the colour pop.

We recommend using a lip brush instead of the wand provided, for an even application. After applying a layer of coat, layer your lips with a 1-ply tissue paper and set the colour by dusting translucent powder at the same time.

5.Colour my life
Apply another layer of lipstick and you’re good to go!
