Gloss vs matte

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Lip gloss is cer­tainly mak­ing a come­back this sea­son; its re­flec­tive el­e­ment is not only eye-catch­ing, but can also make your lips ap­pear fuller. Plus the gloss it­self pro­vides long-last­ing hy­dra­tion. Ac­cord­ing to Ryuko Lau, se­nior artist at MAC, a dark, glossy shade of­fers a fem­i­nine, el­e­gant fin­ish com­pared to the strong, rock-chic look achieved with a matte lip­stick. How­ever, if you’re go­ing to get glossy, be sure to use a lip liner be­fore­hand to pre­vent feath­er­ing.
