Perfect for anyone who has dry lips or struggles with skin flakiness, a cream lipstick typically is more moisturising than some other finishes like matte or velvet and should sit comfortably on your lips during the day.
What is a cream lipstick?
A cream lipstick describes the finish or texture of the lipstick itself. A creamy lipstick usually has a higher wax component and, as a result, provides a smooth, buttery finish to the lips.
What is the best creamy lipstick?
There are various kinds of creamy lip products that can be used in different ways to achieve specific looks. Depending on your personal makeup style and lip condition, certain options may work better for you than others. For someone who wants a bold, long wearing lip colour, a cream liquid lipstick might be the one for you. With a smooth, moisturising texture that is non-sticky, liquid lipsticks tend to stay put on the lips more effectively without smudging or coming off during the day. For a glossier option, go with a classic creamy lipstick and top it off with a shiny gloss.
What is the difference between a cream lipstick finish and a matte finish?
A cream lipstick generally sits between a glossy and a matte finish. A cream finish isn’t as high shine as a glossy lipstick but not as powdery as a matte lipstick. Similar to a matte finish, creamy lipsticks also have a high pigmentation and significant colour payoff when applied. The main difference between a cream and a matte is the level of hydration. Matte lipsticks are well known for being slightly more drying, whereas creme lipsticks provide more hydration. If you are someone who has dry lips, definitely opt for a creamy lipstick and maybe top it off with a gloss to seal in the moisture.
