Lipstick Types: How To Tell The Difference

Updated on August 9, 2016

Not sure what everyone’s talking about when they bring up the words matte, satin, and sheer? We’ve got you covered. Here’s a brief description of each type of lipstick.

  • Lip gloss - This is slightly different from lipstick, but still falls into the same category. Its shine and subtle color make it a favorite among those who want to enhance the depth factor of their lips. It can also be layered on top of lipstick for a unique look.
  • Cream lipstick - It’s just like it sounds. Cream lipstick has a smooth formula that glides onto lips easily. It usually has a great color payoff as well.
  • Matte lipstick - Matte lipstick provides intense color without any shine. Although it can be drying and difficult to apply, a perfect matte lip pulls a look together. It also tends to be long-lasting, so you don’t have to reapply it throughout the day.
  • Liquid matte lipstick - This product is applied as a liquid and then dries down to a hydrating matte finish. It’s long-lasting and has great color payoff.
  • Pearl/frosted lipstick - Popular in the ‘90s, pearl or frosted lipstick reflects light and gives off a sparkling, glistening look.
  • Lip stain - Lip stains often come in vivid, long-lasting colors. They’re gel-like and dry quickly, and they literally do stain your lips--at least, until you use some makeup remover.
  • Sheer lipstick - This is a great choice for low-maintenance makeup wearers. These lipsticks provide a bit of color while also adding a little shine and a lot of moisture.

Now that you’ve learned a little more about each type of lipstick, you’ll be able to decide which is the best for you or for your next big social event!
