What It Is: Heavily pigmented matte lip glosses. Because of their matte, velvety texture, liquid lipsticks are a great pick for those with thinner lips, as they can make pouts look fuller. But not so great for those with dry or chapped lips. Depending on the formula, they may have some hydrating properties or might not. If you’re one that often gets dry lips, keep a stick lip balm in your purse on days you’re wearing a liquid lipstick, and dab the smallest amount of the balm on your lips when needed.
