This season, powder lipstick rightfully becomes the new trend in achieving a more velvety effect on your lips. In appearance, such a lipstick may not differ from the usual one, but its texture is drier than matte, and at the same time it does not dry or tighten the lips. Powder lipsticks have a delicate powder texture, pigmented shades and a natural finish. Their finish is velvety, slightly shimmery or creamy, depending on how many moisturizing ingredients it contains. The feature of powder textures starts with the formula — they do not contain any beeswax or water.
The main advantage of powder lipstick is that lips with such lipstick do not dry out, while classic matte formulas can not always boast of the same. Even a layer of primer or balm applied before this does not guarantee that cracks on the lips will not appear after the lipstick has completely dried. But with powder lipsticks, lips always stay hydrated while maintaining a matte, velvety effect.
Literally a couple of minutes after applying powder lipstick, the coating looks like something in between a matte and satin finish. It looks quite natural, as if you just covered your lips with a moisturizing color balm. The powdery texture does not last all day, but it also does not make the lips dry. Powder lipsticks last a couple of hours and then fade smoothly.
