Light As A Feather: Why You Need To Add Powder Lipsticks To Your Beauty Arsenal

many lipsticks, lipstick flatllay

When it comes to choosing a lipstick, it's all about the texture and how comfortable it feels on the lips. Whether it is a metallic lipstick or a creamy matte, we are spoilt for choice. Gone are the days when the 'bullet' lipsticks were the only type of lipstick we knew existed because now, we can get our hands on so many varieties that it is crazy. And if you are someone who is not a fan of super staying lipsticks and prefers lightweight lipsticks, then you gotta try powder lipsticks today!

But first, let us understand what a powder lipstick is exactly.

What Are Powder Lipsticks?

Powder lipsticks are awesome. Introduced to us by the Koreans brands like Etude House, it has everything the Koreans want from their beauty products...

- It is easy to use, feels super light, faint but nice colour payoff and doesn't look too loud.

- The lipstick comes across as a new form of a liquid lipstick but instead of the sticky texture, it feels exactly like powder and the consistency of the lipstick feels like whipped cream. 

- It gives a subtle matte finish to the lips, without drying them out. No, they are not long-lasting like a traditional liquid lipstick and also doesn't set in the cracks of our lips.

- Their formula is usually hydrating and is a perfect pick for everyone who has dry lips. Just squeeze it out from the tube and apply!

- The lipstick usually also has a tiny cushion puff that you can use to spread colour evenly on your lips.

And if you are someone who wears nothing but the brightest shades in the room, thankfully, there are a lot of variations available in the market for us to try that offer much more pigmented colours than the Koreans versions.
