Lipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture, and protection to the lips.
Many colors and types of lipstick exist. As with most other types of makeup, lipstick is typically, but not exclusively, worn by women. Some lipsticks are also lip balms, to add color and hydration.
Trying and buying makeup in general, is a very personal experience. We are faced with the challenge of one shade rarely fitting all. Although we are yet to crack the code on a foolproof foundation, we are very close with our lipstick choices. Thus, here are five universally flattering lipstick shades to swipe now;
1- PERFECT RED (REVLON LOVE IS ON):
Despite being deep enough not to look garish, this everyday red lipstick is one of the lipstick shades that is bold enough to brighten up your face. It has been the only lipstick that most of our women of varying skin tones and styles agree on.
- PERFECT PINK (NARS SCHIAP):
It may seem alarmingly bright at first glance, but this power pink adds a transformative pop of colour to all who wear it. Press this on with your fingertip to diffuse the pigment and look beautiful.
- PERFECT NEUTRAL (LIPSTICK QUEEN SAINT NATURAL):
This shade amplifies your natural lip colour. There’s no room for error with this sheer finish and equal parts pink and brown.
- PERFECT OXBLOOD (TOM FORD BLACK DAHLIA):
The key is to finding something that’s slightly more berry-toned than black to keep it from looking too severe is this hue. Well, if that sounds a little confusing, this elegant berry from Mr. Tom Ford is ideal for you at all times.
- THE PERFECT CORAL: ELIZABETH ARDEN NEOCLASSICAL CORAL:
While not everyone will look good or feel comfortable in a bold red or orange lip, coral offers a beautiful blend of both. By their very nature, corals are more forgiving than most shades.
