What are good lipsticks formula wise? I hate loving a shade only to find out it looks ugly on the lips :( Any price range, thanks.
I know what you mean, I used to hate lipstick because it always just looked either cakey or unnatural on the lips. I mean red lipstick won’t ever look natural… but you can wear the lipstick without letting it wear you.
Some of my favorite formulas are creamy with a light weight semi matte finish. I want lipsticks to feel weightless on the lips and be almost invisible. I want my lips to still look soft and feminine with lipstick on. I like to dab lipstick on instead of swiping it on because I feel like i can control the color more and it won’t just create a thick layer of product. So if you want that look in a lipstick, these formulas will be the ones for you.
Tom Ford Lip Color. I like all of TF’s formulas besides the Lip Foils but I just don’t like the foil look on myself. His lipsticks are creamy while still being lightweight, pigmented and come in modern, trendy shades. Late i’ve been getting more Lip & Boys shades because they’re smaller and more affordable.
Glossier Generation G Lipsticks. These are just so, so light weight. I forget they’re on when I wear them. Very matte, semi sheer but the deeper shades really go full pigment.
