Different Lipstick Tip Shapes
One thing to note is that the tips of the lipsticks are differently shaped; the mattes have a sharp diagonal tip, while the balm-like ones have a flat top that is slightly cut diagonal. In the matter of higher precision, the mattes have the upper hand. Sharper tips are ideal for carving out your perfect lip shape and to really get into the sharp edges, like your cupid’s bow.
For the Shine series, the lipsticks have a very creamy texture when applied and is definitely of medium coverage, giving you a translucent finish. Think of it as a balm, just pigmented with colour. The product glides on very well and is extremely buildable. Again, don’t expect it to have a full coverage though.
On the other hand, the matte series have a soft, velvety finish. Having tried out several matte lipsticks myself, it has been quite a journey to find one that doesn’t necessarily dry out my lips to the point where they look chapped. I quite like the texture it gives my lips.
Although these shades are the lighter shades in both series, I find that they have potential to complement people with both fairer and darker skin tones.
Although not all of the lipstick colours suit me completely, I think that all the lipstick shades, as a whole, are pretty inclusive and gorgeous. If all else fails, I can always use them as my blush.
