They are among the most asked questions when it comes to this product which, together with mascara, is the cosmetic that immediately makes you feel made up. Whether it's a colored lip balm, a liquid rosette, a creamy lipstick, a matte lipstick or a lip tint, let's discover the different types and how to make it last as long as possible, even under the mask.

- The creamy lipstick, for those who do not like the dry feeling on the mouth
- The matte stick lipstick, for those who love totally opaque but flowing formulations
- Liquid lipstick, the ally of long-lasting and dry touch on the lips

The colored lip balm, for those who have always chapped lips but do not give up color
It must be said: there is no way to make the colored lip balm last longer. Its pro, however, is that it nourishes and moisturizes the lips, leaving them soft and smooth and preventing unsightly skin and cracking. It is essential for those who have extremely dry lips, especially with masks, since the area is subject to always remain moist and to sudden changes in temperature that could break them.
There are various types, with a bland and almost imperceptible but also more intense color, which makes them close to a creamy but more nourishing and moisturizing lipstick. For those with thin lips, you should also try the volumizing colored lip balms, which thanks to the substances contained inside such as pepper or mint help to bring in a greater amount of blood, making the lips naturally more rosy and swollen.

The creamy lipstick, for those who do not like the dry feeling on the mouth
Creamy lipstick is perhaps the most classic lipstick, as well as still the most chosen. Yes, because it guarantees excellent coverage and a full color but on the lips it is, in fact, creamy and not dry. The finish is therefore slightly shiny, which makes sure that even the darkest shades do not shrink the lips as it does for matte lipsticks. The duration depends on the formulation, there are creamy lipsticks that last longer or that last less.
Be careful if you are no longer very young and no longer have a firm lip contour but with some fine lines, because the creamy lipstick could creep into the folds. Just use a pencil to outline the edges and this will ensure that the lipstick does not shift, also ensuring a longer duration. If you are not interested in keeping it shiny, a trick to make it last even longer is to place a tissue on your lips and dab some loose powder on it with a brush. At this point the color will have become dull and drier on the lips, but certainly more lasting. If you want to restore the shiny component, just reapply another layer of lipstick on top.

The matte stick lipstick, for those who love totally opaque but flowing formulations
The matte or opaque lipstick is the favorite of those who love sticky lipsticks but the velvety and not shiny effect. Usually they are more full-bodied and hard formulations that either love or hate each other. In fact, the sensation is a little drier on the lips but the product is perceived, it is not dry as with liquid lipsticks. If light colors are easier to apply, care must be taken from reds to darks, because being a harder type of lipstick it is more difficult to be precise with the stick. The result could be that of a more indented lip contour, so it is better to apply a lip pencil first or proceed to spread the product directly with a brush.
This is in general an excellent tip for lipstick sticks, both creamy and opaque, because it allows the product to work well on the lips, making it adhere better and applying the right amount, without accumulation. However, not everyone loves the matte stick lipstick because it could dry out the lips: in fact, the duration is often given by the fact that there are no emollients or oils. Remember to apply lip balm when you start putting on make-up and remove it before applying lipstick, by doing so you will avoid highlighting cuticles, especially with dark colors and will prevent your lips from drying out.

Liquid lipstick, the ally of long-lasting and dry touch on the lips
Liquid lipstick is perhaps the type of lipstick that has made its way in recent years, earning a great record on social media. Often mistakenly called tint, in reality it is a lipstick in liquid form and that is spread with the applicator, like that of the gloss. It dries on the lips and sets, for a totally dry finish and guarantees excellent hold and durability. There are those who can no longer do without it, because if you touch your lips with your fingers or give yourself a kiss, this type of lipstick leaves no residue.
Liquid lipsticks resist well even during meals but are more difficult to touch up: in fact, by layering too much product, you risk that it comes off into pieces or creates unsightly lumps. Therefore, it is better to pay attention when eating, because the oils in foods tend to dissolve them slightly and the effect could be that of half-made-up lips, faded in the center and with full color on the edges.

The lip tint, a product that dyes the lips without any thickness
Lip tint is a less used and underestimated product category, but perfect in this period when you want maximum durability, without dirtying the mask. It comes in a very liquid and more transparent form than a liquid lipstick and it seems to spread water on the lips. In reality the pigment is fixed on them giving a discreet color, not full as with other types of lipstick, but more delicate. They do not leave any residue because the water evaporates and the pigment is as if it stains the skin, remaining intact until you decide to remove the product.
They are certainly not very moisturizing products and that could dry out the lips, so also in this case it is better to apply lip balm before starting to put on make-up, to be removed before moving on to the color. The only flaw is that they are so long-lasting that it is not very easy to remove make-up, you have to arm yourself with patience and a make-up remover oil or butter to make sure you remove all the product.
