Different Types of Lipsticks
Lipstick online shopping can be a daunting experience - there are so many textures, shades, formats that it can be overwhelming. It is however important that you buy lipstick that is just right for you.
These are the different kinds of lipsticks -
Ultra matte transfer proof lipstick -
This Halal lipstick comes in a bullet form and is 100% transfer-proof. The lipstick is creamy when applied, then settles down & gives a matte, 100% smudge-proof, transfer-proof lip color.
Long stay matte lipstick
The online lipstick sale for this variant is the highest at Iba. These are creamy matte lipsticks with great color payoff, hydrate the lips & stay all day long since it is a long stay lipstick.
Moisture rich glossy lipstick
If you wish to buy lipstick for the first time, these super glossy lipsticks are the best bet. Intensely hydrating, these lipsticks give a moist, shiny finish to the lips.
Matte Liquid Lipstick
This lipstick set online is in the form of liquid lipstick & gives a matte, non-transfer finish to the lips. Liquid lipsticks glide onto the lips very smoothly, giving gorgeous deep color without drying out the lips.
Lip & cheek tint
This is another type of Halal lipstick - which can multitask as a cheek tint or blush and also eye shadow & lipstick. These are creamy and can be blended very easily using a blender sponge, brush or even fingertips.
This category has liquid gloss - perfect for giving a luster to your underlying lip color. It also helps plump the lips slightly to give a fuller pout.
It is important to note ingredients of lipsticks when you buy lipstick online. Lipsticks containing pig fat (collagen, elastin, stearic acid, cholesterol, tallow, waxes, glycerin, royal jelly) are a no-no. So are lipsticks which contain carmine - a form of beetle crushed to give that perfect red color to your lipstick.
Avoid all animal ingredients in your lipsticks as you end up licking off your lipstick many times and would not want to ingest toxic materials. Halal lipstick is the best because it contains none of these nasties. Opt for vegan, Halal non transfer lipstick for the best results.
Useful Lipstick Hacks
You can create an ombre look by outlining your lips with a dark shade and filling them in with a lighter one. This type of lipstick set online looks very impressive.
To instantly dress up your matte non transfer lipstick, swipe a layer of lip plumping gloss over it. This makes the lipstick last long while oozing shine.
You can use brown shade lipsticks as contour & pink to red shades as a blush as well as eyeshadow. When you buy lipstick online, make sure to keep this in mind.
You can use a thin brush and a liquid lipstick to create cool eyeliner looks! This makes lipstick online shopping truly fun.
What are Halal lipsticks?
A Halal lipstick contains no pig fat or alcohol. Most brands in the market have some form of pig fat in them to make them creamy and easy to glide. When you buy lipstick, make sure to check that the lipstick you buy does not contain any animal derivatives whatsoever, hence it will be vegan too. Such lipstick online is safe for use, non-toxic & pure.
Which lipsticks suit darker skin tones?
Dusky skin tone does very well with both nude glossy lipstick as well as long stay lipstick in bold shades. Do not hesitate to experiment with shades that really bring out your beautiful glowing skin. Some great lipstick shades are mentioned in the list below and they are also on online lipstick sale.
Why do some shades of lipstick look different when I see them online vs when I apply them?
When shopping lipstick online, we see often that the Halal lipstick we buy sometimes looks different on us compared to when someone else chooses to buy lipstick of the same shade & applies on themselves. This is because of color theory. Our lips are already naturally pigmented & the shade of skin, warm or cool undertones, etc. also impact how a lipstick shade would look on different people.
For example, if someone very fair applies a nude glossy lipstick, then that would look darker on them compared to a more muted color on a wheatish skin tone. Similarly, if someone with dusky skin tone with warm undertones applies a red toned non transfer lipstick, it looks deeper on them and too bright on a fairer, cooler tone of skin.
Which lipsticks can I use everyday?
One can buy literally any Iba lipstick for everyday use. The best range when you want to buy lipstick online is the transfer proof lipstick because it is light, lasts all day and keeps the lips nourished.
Liquid lipsticks have 12 gorgeous shades that are perfect for work wear & for evenings out. For regular use, running errands, going out or just looking & feeling great, the long stay matte lipsticks & moisture rich lipsticks are the way to go.
