Lipstick has been around for about 5,000 years, and women have always loved using it. It is the easiest and quickest way to give your face a focus and an instant splash of colour.

Lipsticks in a bullet form are the most popular way to use lip colour. The more pigment a lipstick has, the longer it will last on your lips. The best way to apply lipstick is with a lip brush. Another way of applying a touch of colour is with a lip gloss. This can be used alone to give your lips an attractive sheen, or applied over the top of lipstick to catch the light. Lip liners are used to provide an outline to your lips before applying lipstick. You can also use them over your entire lip for a dark, matte effect.

It is particularly important because this area of skin is prone to developing fine lines.
