Choosing the Right Lipstick
The most important part of selecting lip products is choosing the right color to complement your skin tone, match the rest of your makeup and suit the occasion. If your lip color is bold, make sure you keep your eye shadow softer or go for a neutral lip to match dramatic eye makeup. While bright and light colors can shift from day to night with ease, very dark colors are typically best left for evening. To get the perfect hue, use the colors of your skin's undertones as a guide. Peach, orange reds, coral, taupe and brown shades will bring out golden, orange and peach undertones while pinks, pink reds and purples will enhance cooler pink, blue and violet undertones.
Lipstick is the classic lip product and the first thing that most women picture when they hear the word "lip makeup." Lipstick provides full-coverage color to the lips and can be glossy, sparkly or matte in finish. Lipstick comes in a tube that makes it very easy to trace over the lip area. Be sure to blot your lipstick with a tissue after use to wipe off any excess. You can also choose to use a lip brush for application.
Lip gloss is used to give the mouth a wet or shimmering look and is glossier and shinier than glossy lipsticks. Gloss can be clear or tinted to add color and shine, but most lip gloss provides only a touch of color. This makes gloss great for creating subtle effects for day or night and also allows them to be layered on over top of lipstick or other lip color products. Lip gloss comes in tubes like lipstick, squeeze tubes, pots and other forms.
If you want only a small touch of color for your lip look without the shine of gloss, lip stain is the perfect choice. These liquid-based formulas enhance the color of your lips and often stay in place for long periods of time without the need for reapplication. You can wear lip stain beneath lipstick or lip gloss to add dimension to a makeup look or simply wear it on its own.
Want to define your mouth and make your lips look fuller? Walgreens Lipstick Products offer lip plumpers which can actually make your lips temporarily lusher. They contain ingredients that increase blood flow to the lips, causing them to temporarily swell. Available in clear and colored forms, lip plumpers can be used alone or above or below another lip color product. Lip liner is used to trace along the outer edge of the lips and define the shape of your mouth. BACK TO TOP ›
