Lip Gloss

Thursday, 07 January 2010

lip glossWomen have used various lip glossing products for centuries. Although, traditionally, it was the privilege of the courtesans, not the ordinary women, as glossy lustrous lips have a special appeal, which made it easier for prostitutes to seduce men. The first commercially available lip gloss was Max Factor's X-Rated, launched in 1932. Today, there is hardly a cosmetics brand whose makeup range does not include a lip gloss.

Technically, lip gloss is a cosmetic product used primarily to give lips a mildly glossy lustre and sometimes subtle color. It is distributed as a liquid or a soft solid (not to be confused with lip balm, which generally has medicinal purposes). It can be completely clear, translucent, or various shades of opacity, including frosted, glittered, and metallic looks.

Like lipstick, lip gloss comes in a variety of forms and may be applied in different ways. It can be contained in a small cylindrical bottle and applied with a rounded or sloped applicator wand (known as a doefoot applicator), be applied with a built in lip brush, or a small tube designed for application with the fingertip. Solid glosses come in boxes and tubes, sometimes blurring the distinction between lip gloss and lip balm.

Lip gloss is an essential lip makeup product used by women of all ages, at any time of the day, at any season of the year. Its smooth texture makes it perfect for a quick make-up, whereas you may need significant time to properly apply lipstick. In summer, with lip gloss you young and fresh, as it is perfect for the trendy light, «naked face» make-up, while in winter lip gloss protects your lips, covering them with a sort of liquid film and keeping soft and moist. If your lips are dry, then you only need a lip gloss to fix the problem, and not a lipstick, which simply would not evenly cover the cracked skin on the lips. Besides, lip gloss can be used to moisturize lips and cover their defects, such as cracked and peeled skin.

Young girls prefer to use lip gloss instead of lipstick, and they're right. The main difference between the lip gloss and lipstick is in the texture. Traditional lipsticks are contained in a tube, and must be applied to the lips using a brush, which requires some skill.  When buying a lipstick, there is always a risk not to find the matching color, as the lipstick tend to slightly change its color when applied on the lips (the color usually looks deeper). No such problems are possible with lip gloss, as frequently the opposite happens: very light liquid texture makes the medium in the tube look much darker than it looks on your lips, so the makeup with lip gloss always looks natural.

Lip gloss generally contains ingredients such as glycerin, aloe vera, vitamin E, vitamin A, oil ingredients and UV-filters, as the delicate skin on your lips needs particular UV-protection. If you are unhappy with your thin lips, you can use lip plumpers. Lip plumper is used to plump lip temporarily that last for a few hours. It will reduce wrinkled lines on lip and increase blood flow to the lips. Lip plumpers are usually made of cinnamon, wintergreen, and ginger oils. They are available in cream, gel and liquid forms. Cream-based limp plumpers are best to use. Always choose lip plumper with moisturizing ingredients.

Since lip gloss is used by most modern women, many cosmetic brands produce 2-in-1 lip makeup products, where one side is lipstick, while the other is lip gloss. It is very convenient because you can add color and volume to your lips at the same time. However, it is important to know when to stop. Very often such «color volume» can make you look unattractive, no matter if your lips are thin or plump. In both cases, the natural lips shape is lost, and you get either a thin strip of shine or a blurred spot of color.

Sometimes you need only a touch of lip gloss in the middle of the lower lip. If the color is neutral, you may apply the gloss on both lower and upper lips. High-quality gloss should smoothly cover your lips: it should not form lumps and be sticky. The average storage term for lip gloss is about 18 months, then it should be immediately replaced by a new one. You can get beautiful, shining, and smooth lips with the application of lip gloss. Many companies are advertising natural lip gloss where the components are organic and cruelty free. While these products are great for your lips, they are costlier on the other hand.
