What makes lipstick matte or glossy?
The opposition of matte and glossy lipsticks in the arena of beauty-trends continues for which year. And each of the parties does not give positions: matte lipsticks are becoming better in composition, providing lips maximum comfort, and glossy happy with unusual shades and record resistance.

Choosing between matte and glossy lipstick, have recently needed to choose between expressive deaf mattiness and comfortable for lip coating with caring properties.
Manufacturers had to sacrifice the useful components for the sake of a beautiful external effect. Because if they leave the oil, thanks to which the skin of the lips is softened, lipstick will not be so matte as I would like.
In addition, the coating perseverance will suffer. The texture will literally slide on the lips when applied, but quickly "eaten" or "sliding" to the contour. This is a problem, like the fact that a flawlessly matte result turns into a feeling of dryness and skinny skin throughout the day. Beauty brands try to find a way out of this situation. Many matte innovations are attempts to find a compromise.
For example, Lip Maestro gel from Giorgio Armani is distinguished by a pleasant elastic texture. The basis of the formula – translucent velvet spheres, which, on the one hand, absorb the light, and on the other, still slightly dissipate it throughout the coating.

With glossy lipsticks in terms of production, everything is much easier. If the formula is saturated with oils, the brilliant finish is accurately secured. But questions cause persistence of the resulting formula. And again you need to look for ways to solve the problem, search for compromises required to create a reliable and comfortable tool with the necessary visual effect.
The desired color of beauty brands is achieved by the saturation of brilliance with pigments. Next, work begins on facilitating the texture: the tool must lie on the lips by weightless, barely with a tangible layer, not leaving the effect of stickiness.
