Types Of Lip Gloss

Lip glosses are back and if you want to look glam without having too much on your lips, then lip gloss is perfect for you. Let’s start with the basics of how to choose lip gloss:

Deciding The Shade

Unfortunately not all lip gloss shades look great with every skin tone. When you are out to buy a lip gloss, first do some field work and get to know lip gloss shades for fair skin or dark skin. Decide where exactly you are on the spectrum and then buy the colour. There is no use buying a colour which looks great as a lip gloss but you wouldn’t dare wearing it on your lips. For those of you who are not that adventurous with your lip gloss colours, there is Lipstick Service which is a very nifty in-store a skin tone reader. With that it will pair you with colours that are complementary to your skin tone.

Since this tool is only available in the stores, here is a ready reckoner to understand what colours might suit you. If you are a little fair, stick to pink hues. If your complexion is on the olive spectrum, try warmer and earthier tones. For those of you who are a little dark, caramel, berry and chocolatey colours are perfect.


In short, collar tones work better for fairer skin while warmer colours look the best with darker skin. Choose with care!

Deciding The Type Of Application

The world of lip glosses is intense, shimmery and vast. If you are planning to invest money in a lip gloss, don’t just think about the colour. Also, decide on the kind of applicator you want your lip gloss to have. For instance there are lip glosses which come with a wand, a brush or a pot. Try the different kinds of glosses available and see which applicator suits you the best. This is a very important point which many people miss out on and then regret buying that kind of lip gloss.
