Think about texture and color when choosing lipstick. A single shade can look very different in different textures. Matte means dense color, no shine, little if any moisture. Cream delivers strong color with moisture. Gloss is translucent color, moist and shiny. Stain looks very dark in the tube but goes on sheer. Frosted colors contain sparkly white and are generally more suited to youthful complexions.
