How to choose a good lipstick brand or which lipstick brands to trust since a majority of these lipstick brands are using harmful chemicals? As we know that lipsticks are one of the most important products in the makeup category today. A lot of woman do not apply full blown make up but will rest at mascara and a lipstick; hence a lipstick is one of the high selling make up product.

Well, keep a few things in mind when shopping for lipsticks. Note your natural lip color and complexion. There is a high chance that you may not be able to use nude shades without a lip pencil or foundation if your natural color is dark. If your lips lack color, you may go for dark or bright shades to brighten your face. Understand what a lipstick does for your face. Your lips are the most expressive feature of your face so how to choose best lipstick brands to make it even more expressive without using harmful ingredients often found in cheap lipsticks.

Always use a tester to see the original color. Move out of the showroom light and see the color in natural light. Hold the color next to your face in the mirror to understand the suitability. The look of a color can vary in a big way when seen in yellow light or day light.

Always buy good brands for makeup. Local or cheap brands can harm your lips with ingredients that are not supposed to be there in the first place. Check at the back for what is the lipstick made of. Ignore the salesman and give yourself a thought. Choose your lipsticks carefully when buying from an expensive brand or you will waste your money. Lastly, choose the kind of texture or finish you want. Something for the night, may be you would like glossy. For office wear, may be you want to tone it down with a matte shade or keep it minimal with a satin finish.
