What Are Your Top 5 Favorite Lipsticks?

We have been wanting to do this for a long time- collect data about what our readers REALLY like or dislike. Yes, we could have written the posts on “Top 5 blah blah” ourselves but then we wouldn’t have known the voice of the junta. So today we are going to start a new trend on IMBB- The IMBB Surveys. We are going to find out what top products are working and what aren’t. And we think it would be fun to see whether expensive products are really worth it or there some less expensive diamonds which are in demand but which companies are not really paying attention to.

Well, we are starting with our first question- What Are Your Top 5 Favorite Lipsticks? Please mention the brand + shade. If you do not have top 5, you can even mention one or two. Just go ahead and fill the form. Make your voice heard!

Lipstick contains a variety of wax, oils, and emollients. Wax helps the lipstick take a solid form and aids in ease of application. Lipsticks may be made from several waxes such as beeswax, carnauba wax, and candelilla wax. Different types of oils and fats are also used in lipsticks, such as olive oil, mineral oil, cocoa butter, lanolin, and petrolatum. More than 50% of lipsticks made in the United States contain pig fat, castor oil, which gives them a shiny appearance. Lipstick gets its colors from a variety of dyes including, but not limited to bromo acid, D&C Red No. 21, Calcium Lake such as D&C Red 7 and D&C Red 34, and D&C Orange No. 17. Pink lipsticks are made by mixing titanium dioxide and several red shades.

Matte lipsticks contain heavy waxes, but do not have many emollients. Sheer and long lasting lipstick contain a lot of oil, while long lasting lipsticks also contain silicone oil, which seals the colors to the wearer’s lips. Creme lipsticks contain more waxes than oils. Glossy lipstick contain more oil to give a shiny finish to the lips. Shimmery lipstick may contain mica, silica, fish scales, and synthetic pearl particles to give them a glittery or shimmering shine.[3]

Lipstick is made from grinding and heating ingredients. Then heated waxes are added to the mix for texture. Oils and lanolin are added for specific formula requirements. Afterwards, the hot liquid is poured onto a metal mold. The mixture is chilled and kept cool so that the lipsticks harden. Once they have hardened, they are heated in flame for half a second to create a shiny finish and to remove imperfections

    1. Hi Jazz, juts apply a concealer on your lips or a nude lip pencil. this will erase the original colour from your lips and then you’d be able to wear any lip colour. πŸ™‚

      Also go for more matte or pigmented lipsticks.
