Lipsticks vs. Lip Tints vs. Lip Stains
Every season, I feel like my skin goes through shock therapy and I must re-coordinate my routine to reflect the temperature, humidity, sun, office climate, food, and much more. If you are the same, then read on because summer is around the corner, and at Wonderskin, we’ve curated a selection of our skincare favorites that will help keep your skin healthy and happy!
With the summer heat and humidity, coupled with drying, cold AC air indoors - it’s not uncommon to experience hot, dry and puffy skin. That’s where two of our products come in. The first one - helps to tighten and tone your skin, while the second one - provides the hydration your skin needs without feeling heavy or greasy. The combination of these two products will leave your skin feeling cool, refreshed, and glowing.
First up, our Liquid Gym Serum, a powerful serum that contains our proprietary IsoSculpt Complex. This serum is a game-changer, with its ability to tighten and tone your skin. The IsoSculpt Complex contains purified seaweed extract that helps to stimulate lipolysis, the breakdown of fat into glycerol and fatty acids which the body can then use for energy. This process helps to shrink skin cells, resulting in a tighter, more toned appearance.
The serum also contains HexaPeptide 17, which helps to drain fluid from the extracellular spaces between cells, resulting in a more defined, contoured appearance.
The IsoSculpt Complex also includes Gotu Kola extract, which stimulates collagen production, creating a tighter “net” to hold everything together, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Lastly, the in-built massager will add prolonged cooling sensation from stainless steel circumspheres and relax those tense facial muscles.
Did you know that the first recorded use of lip color dates all the way back to ancient Sumeria, where both men and women used crushed gemstones to add pigment to their lips and cheeks? In ancient Egypt, lip color was seen as a sign of wealth and status, and both men and women used a variety of ingredients, including crushed insects and plant dyes, to create vibrant lip colors.
Fast forward to the early 20th century, and lipsticks were all the rage. In 1915, Maurice Levy invented the first swivel-up tube of lipstick, making it easier for women to apply their lip color on the go. And in the 1930s, Hollywood glamour queen Mae West popularized the bold, red lip, solidifying it as a classic look that is still beloved today.
Of course, all this goes to show how important lip colors have been and continue to be. (Didn't think you'd get a history lesson while reading about lipsticks - did you?)
Luckily, we don't have to crush insects or gemstones for a pop of color. If anything, we are spoilt for choice!
So which is the ultimate better product –lip stain,lip tint, or lipstick? While it ultimately comes down to personal preference,lip stains may be the best choice for those looking for a long-lasting, hydrating lip color. Lip stains provide a natural, sheer color that is buildable, making them a versatile choice for any occasion. Plus, with their ability to last for hours on end without smudging or fading, lip stains are the perfect choice for those with busy lifestyles. In conclusion, lip stains, lip tints, and lipsticks are all great choices for adding color and moisture to the lips.
