Helloooo Friends !Tongue

Its time for another discussion!

I was wondering what to discuss about when I saw a lipstick on the tableEmbarrassed

Then I thought why not have a discussion about lipsticks or lipglosses?

Before we start discussing about it, here is a bit of information about them.

Lipstick is known to have been used around 5000 years ago in ancient Mesopotamia, when semi-precious jewels were crushed and applied to the lips and occasionally around the eyes. Cleopatra had her lipstick made from crushed carmine beetles, which gave a deep red pigment, and ants for a base. Lipsticks with shimmering effects were initially made using a substance found in fish scales called pearlescence

During the Second World War, lipstick gained popularity as a result of its use in the movie industry, and it became commonplace for women to apply makeup, or "put their face on".

Lip gloss is most frequently used as a cosmetic, it is also used as a moisturiser now. Many lip glosses now contain sunscreen. It was first advertised by actress Lillian Gish. Sometimes it's mistaken for lip balm which is generally used for medicinal purposes.

 

Do you wear lipstick/lipgloss?

Do you wear them according to your :- dress/favourite shades or your skin colour?

Do you have a favourite brand for them?

Do share any tips that you think are useful.Tongue

Thats it for this week guys! Have fun discussing!Big smile

Thanks for such awesome topicBig smileI love this DOTWBig smile

 

Do you wear lipstick/lipgloss? Yup, I wear lipglossesBig smile

Do you wear them according to your :- dress/favourite shades or your skin colour?

all of the above

Do you have a favourite brand for them? Maybelline, Loreal, Revlon, Colorbar, etc

Do share any tips that you think are useful.Tongue

Put lip balm or Vaseline about 10 minutes before putting lipgloss/ lipstick, so that the lips get time to absorb them. After 10 minutes, wipe the excess and apply lipgloss/ lipstick. This method will leave your lips soft and colour of the lipgloss/ lipstick will be retained for a longer timeBig smile

 

Really loved this topicBig smile

lip balm must be applied before applying lipstick to keep your lips moisturized, nourished and naturally rosy. It also prevents the lips from drying and developing of cracksTongue

Do you wear lipstick/lipgloss?
yes i wear lipsticks, dont get why most think lipstick is of the past, well i dont like gloss mostly becoz of the sticky texture, but most have had those sweet smell which i luv, n tend to eat up. so before reaching my distination its gone. i find more beautiful shades in lipstick though.

Do you wear them according to your :- dress/favourite shades or your skin colour?
its my favourite shade, i buy the same colour again n again n dont realise it till i go home n see its the same. its sheer metallic light pink or mauve. i hate those dark browns and maroons n nude stuff.

Do you have a favourite brand for them? yes i luv maybelline, mostly becoz its affordable in my range. while wen i go to the malls that is wen i was in singapore i used to luv the sheer range of oh i dont remember but they used to be real nice.

Do share any tips that you think are useful.
dont use long stay wear often becoz it has a chemical lead oxide or zinc oxide which is toxic but serves the purpose. leading brands like dior, channel etc.
