Must-Have Types of Lipsticks for Women and Girls in 2022


Shopping for makeup products, including different types of lipsticks, has become super easy. With the click of a button, you can get your hands on a wide array of lipstick formulas, brands, and application techniques to achieve the perfect pout.

Lipstick is a magical makeup essential that plays a major role in making or breaking your look. It not only adds colour to the lips but also adds tremendously to the wearer’s personality. Whether it’s a lipstick brand offering a glossy finish in a bullet form or a matte finish in a crayon, the product serves as one of the best women’s accessories.

If the world of makeup seems intimidating to you, we bring you the perfect guide to different types of lipsticks. We will be sharing our two cents on the variety of textures, formulas, and finishes offered by some of the best lipstick brands in India and abroad to best suit your needs and likings.

Types of lipsticks Based on Product Formula

Pretty much everyone remembers their mother applying lipstick out of a retractable tube. The formulation often referred to as a bullet lipstick, is an age-old product that allows easy and even application. However, as the makeup industry has progressed over time, it’s no surprise that other lipstick formulations have become more mainstream. Listed below are some of the best long lasting lipstick formulas that you can grab for yourself.

1. Bullet

These lipsticks feature a pointed tip that allows the product to glide seamlessly on the lips without leaving any smears that can result in an uneven application. What makes these types of lipsticks truly worth the investment is their travel-friendly packaging and retractable tube formulation.

2. Crayon

If you are looking for a formula that blends flawlessly, the crayon formulation is certainly for you.  A crayon lipstick serves the purpose of giving your lips a flush of colour that can be achieved by applying the product with just the fingers. A simple dabbing motion can result in a tint-like application that appears almost natural. What makes this moisturising lipstick even better is the fact that it doubles up as a blush and allows you to feel comfortable all day long without drying out your lips.

3. Liquid

Thanks to Kylie Cosmetics, liquid lipstick is now amongst the most popular lip products of the 21st century. The package features a tube filled with product, accompanied by a doe-shaped applicator. The best liquid lipsticks are designed to dry out entirely and show next to no signs of smudging throughout the day. 

Types of Lipsticks Based on Product Finish

Another way to characterise lipsticks is on the basis of the product finish. Whether you are a fan of the matte lip trend or love a glossy finish, we can help you make the right choice with the following product list.

1. Satin

A satin finish lipstick is particularly designed to keep your lips moisturised without compromising on the colour intensity. A satin lipstick has a super soft texture and offers a cream-like finish upon application. The moisturising lipstick formula usually lasts a good 8 hours, so you do not need to worry about the colour fading easily.

2. Matte

I did not know there were so many different types of lipstick available! I hate applying liquid lipsticks as well as bullet ones. Now I am going to switch to crayon type which is much more convenient.
