Have you ever wondered what sets lip lacquers apart from other lipsticks? We all have our favorite lipsticks, but with the advancements in lip color, it can be challenging to distinguish between different products. In this guide, we will dive into the world of lip color and explore four distinct forms of lipstick: liquid lipstick, lip lacquer, lip gloss, and lip stain.

What is a Lip Lacquer?

Lip lacquers are currently one of the biggest trends in the beauty industry. These non-sticky, highly pigmented lip glosses have a noticeably thicker, creamier texture that resembles liquid lipsticks. The term "lacquer" refers to the high-shine, smooth finish that gives your lips an extra sparkle.

Lacquers provide a glossy, thick, and creamy texture that adds a radiant sheen to your lips. They come in various hues and can be used alone or as a top coat over matte lipstick. High-quality lacquers also contain moisturizers and vitamins to nourish your lips, ensuring long-lasting wear.

Lip Stains: A Delicate Veil of Color

Lip stains are a brilliant invention in the world of lip color. These thin liquid lipsticks act as delicate color veils on your lips, giving them a unique off-color sheen. Achieve the trendy lollipop lip appearance with lip stains like the Weightless Longwear Lip Stain (Leopard Limited), which combines pearl and polarized light to create a gilded shine effect. These stains offer high shine and an instantly eye-catching look.

The beauty of lip stains is that they stay on the lips for hours, typically over 8 hours, without regular reapplication. However, they dry quickly, so precise application requires a steady hand. Additionally, lip stains may lack moisturizing properties, so it's a good idea to use lip balm occasionally.

The Magic of Lip Gloss

As the name implies, lip gloss is designed to give your lips a glossy appearance. Though some lip glosses contain minor pigmentation for a hint of color, their primary purpose is to make your lips shine. True lip glosses have a softer, translucent tone compared to thick and heavily pigmented lacquers. Some glosses even offer additional SPF protection, perfect for shielding your sensitive lips from sun damage. Try our Floating Light Lip Gloss for a hydrating, refreshing formula that delivers a long-lasting dewy shine and the illusion of plumper lips without any stickiness.

The Classic Lipstick

Lipstick is a staple in any makeup collection. It comes in a waxy, solid form and is applied to color the lips. Lipsticks have a matte or velvety texture and can be moisturizing or non-moisturizing. These oil-based beauty products contain a combination of oils, pigments, and waxes. Lipsticks are designed to last long, eliminating the need for frequent reapplication.

How to Apply Lip Lacquer?

The formula of lip lacquers is intense and creamy, yet non-sticky. When applying, start with the plush side of the applicator and glide it onto your lips. The plush side ensures the perfect amount of product in a single swipe. Use the round edge of the applicator to define the lips and intensify the shine effect. The edges provide more precision during application. Finally, flip the applicator to the smooth side and glide it over your lips to achieve a mirror-like finish.
