Almost all types of decorative lipsticks add extra volume to the lips, and some do not require the use of a pencil for lip contour.

The brand also produces a youth series of lip cosmetics. This kind of product takes care of young skin and has a more saturated palette of colors.

It is used in cosmetology as a stabilizer and has conditioning properties. In the manufacture of lipsticks and lip glosses, a chemical product prevents the formation of air bubbles in their structure. In addition, it has good binding properties.

Paraffin synthetic origin is also completely harmless and approved for use during pregnancy and lactation, not allergenic. In decorative cosmetics plays the role of a thickener.

All Natural Ingredient - mika. The product is a type of natural mica. It is then painted in various shades to give the lipstick one color or another. The structure of cosmetics depends on the degree of grinding of the substance. Fine grinding contributes to satin shine, while coarser grinding creates an overflow effect (for example, mother of pearl effect). Mika fits tightly and gives makeup resistance.

Each manufacturer, when releasing cosmetics, indicates its production time and the period by which it is suitable for use. For lipsticks, this period is about two years but no longer than three. True, no matter how long this period is, you need to properly store the product and monitor its condition.

Very often, with the release of a brand new product, a woman can make a mistake in choosing the right lipstick color. And sometimes, depending on the print quality of the catalog, the correspondence of the swatch in the picture from the reality is violated. In this case, the manufacturer produces special probes. The only thing worth paying attention to is the lipstick codes in the catalog are different from the probe codes.

It is a mistake to assume that sample kits are sold only for consultants, because the cost of several copies is equivalent to the cost of a full set. And this is done solely for the convenience and benefit of the consumer.

How to choose the right shades

To make the right choice of lipstick, you need to correctly determine your color type of appearance and take into account the shape of the lips (chubby or thin). After all, an unfortunate shade or effect will not only visually age the face, but can also make lips full and naturally dull and thin.

First you need to figure out what is type of appearance - cold or warm. The warm type includes women with eye colors such as hazel, hazel, green and blue-blue. Accordingly, the hair should match the wheat, red or honey tint. Skin color should have a warm shade.

To find out the type of skin for sure, just apply a tissue of juicy orange color to your face. If as a result of the experiment the face acquired a fresh and rosy appearance, then the color type is really warm.

For this type of appearance, you should choose warm shades of lipsticks. And the brighter the color of the hair, the softer and brighter lipstick is needed. And more saturated dark tones are relevant for dark-haired and saffron beauties. The main colors of lipsticks for a warm type of appearance are peach, coral, beige, cocoa, nude and rich brown shades (coffee, caramel, chocolate).

Cold color type smoky, ashen and some dark hair colors are characteristic. The eyes also have gray shades or cool undertones of the primary color.

To verify the correct type of appearance will help fabric blue or blue color. If the experiment made the face fresher in contrast to the fabric, then the color type is definitely cold.

For a cold type of appearance, pearl, pearlescent, candy and simply cold tones of lipsticks are relevant. For example, plum, wine shades, lilac, lavender, silver and cold pink. It is worth paying attention to the skin tone - the darker it is, the darker the colors of lipsticks you can choose.

From lip shape also a lot depends. For puffy lips Any matte lipsticks, glossy and pearlescent will do. This form has no restrictions on the use of any makeup products. The only exception may be the mismatch of lipstick color with the type of appearance. In such a situation, it can simply merge with the skin tone, or even completely “eat” the natural volume of the lips.

For thin lips, pearly lipsticks and glosses are good. They will visually increase their volume and draw attention to the elegant luster, and not to the form. Very dark or bright colors visually make thin lips even thinner. It is also better to avoid saturated matte shades.


Two brand lines made a real sensation - "Style icon" and collection "EnergyBloss". These are fairly budget high-quality lipsticks with a delicate aroma. The creamy structure and easy application without the use of a contour pencil allows you to create perfect lip makeup for almost 10 hours.

Convenient and economical packaging relevant for carrying in a purse, as a result of which the integrity of the product is completely not violated. Nourishing and caring formula these funds are achieved due to the presence in the composition natural vegetable oils and quality resins and wax. The skin of the lips visually smoothes, masking imperfections and unwanted pigmentation, as well as age-related changes.

Lipsticks create a protective layer from environmental influences in the form of a thin film. As a result of using the lips reserved from the sun, frost and weathering and gain a healthy moisturized appearance. Huge selection shades for every taste and color conquers with its versatility and the ability to adapt to a particular type of skin of the lips.
