Your Guide To The Best Lipstick Makeup

Your Guide To The Best Lipstick Makeup

Lipstick is a makeup staple, and is a pillar of any look from the frosty tones of a go-go girl to the everyday chic of the French red lip. The pop of colour highlights a very expressive part of your face, and is an important way in which people express their personality and style. At Novela, we believe in the importance of self-expression, and we want to help everyone look and feel their best - whether it be a simple swipe of subtle tint for the day, or a stand-out X factor to complement your look for your night about town. There's many places to start with lipstick, and in this guide we will go through some of the best lipsticks for you, from the mattes to the metallics. Perfect your best makeup looks by reading this guide to make your online shopping for lipsticks a breeze!

1. Matte Lipstick

The lasting power and intense pigmentation of matte lipsticks make them the perfect focal point for some of the best makeup looks - whether you are trying a nude lip or a splash of plum, the matte lipsticks give you a velvety finish, a versatile style that can be used in the office or on a night out. At Novela, shopping for these beauty products in Singapore could never be easier, whether it is on our online makeup shop or in our physical storefronts. We've curated some super hydrating lipsticks for your ease and comfort! Check out the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Amplified Matte Lipstick, with its Japanese tsubaki oil for smooth application and moisture through your whole day of wear. The dramatic matte from Lancôme also provides flawless colour and a powdery matte, with the added hyaluronic acid to keep those lips hydrated.

2. Gloss Lipstick

An icon of the 2000s, lip gloss has come back into fashion in the recent years,  with Fenty Beauty's Gloss Bomb heading the movement. Far from the sticky mess of middle school, modern lip glosses give you a glass-like finish, with light to medium opacity. This luxurious product can be layered with your mattes to give your lipstick an added dimension of shine, a staple in the dewy and glowy looks of K-beauty styles.  One of the best beauty products to channel that look in Singapore, By Terry's glossy liquid lipstick is highly pigmented while still giving you that irresistible shine. 

3. Metallic Lipstick

The reflective, sparkling lipsticks of the 90s have also made a comeback. These shimmery statement lips fit right into the experimental and artistic makeup looks of the 20s, fully flaunting the frosted and metallic qualities of these lipsticks. The shimmer also can be used as highlighter for your lips - layered on top of matte lips for dimension, or concentrated in the centre of your lips for a pouty look.  Available with two other finishes, the Dior Travel Trio Rouge Dior Set is one of the best options for metallic lipsticks when you buy makeup online.

4. Creamy

The creamy lip is a middle point between the satiny and matte finishes. These formulas provide more intense hydration than a matte stick, but with more coverage and pigment than the sheerer lip glosses. Usually liquid based, these beauty products are versatile in their use for not only your lips but also adds a pop of colour on your cheeks or as an eyeliner when you head out in Singapore.  The Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Coffret Set offers three different shades, a neutral nude, statement red and a subtle pink -  for use on their own or blended, providing you with high quality, long lasting pigment with a matte finish and creamy, non-stick texture. 

5. Tinted Lip Balm

Tinted lip balm is both makeup and skincare, and is an important step in any routine. With its multifunctional appeal, this is one beauty trend expanding across numerous beauty product categories in Singapore and all over the world. If you are prone to chapped and dry lips, try a tinted lip balm, which will help soothe and hydrate your lips, while still adding a flush of colour. Perfect for an everyday swift swipe of subtle pigment, these products can be your daily go-to, or feature as a more toned-down look for occasions. The tints can give you a my-lips-but-better vibe, while still playing around with many different tones from burgundy to coral. The Dior Addict Lip Glow is a sheer, glowy balm that provides 24-hour hydration, supplemented by cherry oil, and can be used on its own or as a primer under other lip makeup, making it one of the most sought after products in our online shop in Singapore.
