What is the difference between lipstick and lipgloss? 💄⁠

The main difference between lipstick and lipgloss is that lipstick contains wax with antioxidants, oils, and emollients, and lip gloss is a soft or liquid gel, which does not contain wax.⁠ ⁠

What is wax? ⁠ ⁠

All waxes are primarily hydrocarbons, whether the wax is of animal (think beeswax), vegetable, or petroleum origin. The chemical composition of all waxes used for candle-making is similar, and all candle waxes burn in the same manner.⁠ ⁠

Varieties of Lipsticks are:⁠ ⁠

1. Matt: It provides a flat color and is great if you are after a long-lasting look. It can make lips a little dry, but it is a good choice for those with big lips who want to showcase and flatter their pout.⁠
2. Creamy: Creamy lipsticks give a shiny look. They come in very true colors and are the best formulations for those prone to dry lips.⁠
3. Frosted: Frosted lipsticks usually come packed with shimmer. They are perfect for creating a fuller pout when used with a dab of clear gloss in the center of your lips.⁠ ⁠
What do you prefer? Lipgloss or lipstick? :)⁠ ⁠
