Lip Gloss vs Lipstick
Should you be wearing lipstick or lip gloss? Much of it depends on the look you want to achieve. Lip gloss has a more sheer and shinier look and, in some cases, can be more moisturizing. You are always going to have a shiny look with your lip gloss, but you can choose clear or opaque. Some glosses can also have a glittery finish. Glosses are great to use if you’re looking for a tint rather than full coverage on your lips.
Lipsticks can have a similar look, but usually aren't as natural looking. Lipsticks can come in more varieties than glosses do. Lipsticks can come in matte, suede, and glossy finishes; Lip glosses only come in a “glossy” finish. Also, Lipsticks usually need a bit more attention throughout the day to make sure it stays on and, is at its full potential.
As an everyday makeup user, I like to wear lip gloss in everyday, on the go, situations, but I wear lipsticks on special occasions. If I’m looking for a color impact, I select lipstick. If you’re looking for both you can always go for a lipstick and gloss combo.
