When it comes to choosing the right lipstick to complete THE LOOK, you should keep in mind different criteria and preferences that will enable you to feel ultra-comfortable while it stays looking great on your lips for a fair amount of time:  

First of all, opt for the right shade that matches your skin tone (light, medium, deeper), the preferred texture (matte or shimmering), check out whether the formula is drying/ greasy or not, see it’s the same as picking your today’s outfit, you want to look fresh and fashionable yet ultra-comfortable in your shoes, the same goes to choosing the right lipstick, it’s not all about the color, we want to feel comfortable in wearing it. Another thing that we respect the lipstick industry for is the ingredients, nowadays, a lot of brands deliver high-quality formulas with the most nourishing, moisturizing, and lip-color-enhancing key ingredients that will help with so many lip-skin concerns, so it’s no longer just a makeup product, it feels more like a lip treatment which is a brilliant idea, last but not least, the price should never break your bank account, and even if it does, it should be worth it right!
