    im loving mac amplified cremes for winter

    Same here, creamy and opaque. Shimmer in a lipstick makes me look older for some reason (I know that makes no sense), but in gloss it’s OK. Go figure!

    I prefer mac lipglass. The staying power is great, moisturizes my lips and gives a great color. <3

    Shimmery lipstick tends to make my lips look more wrinkly.
    The NYX Black Label lipsticks seem to work the best for me.

    I love all textures. What I choose to wear really just depends on my mood or the look I’m going for. However, because my lips have an uneven tone and are quite pigmented, I guess I am drawn more to lipsticks that are opaque e.g. MAC matte, mattene, amplified creme, pro longwear lipcolour and so on.

    i like the colorstay ones applied with a lipbrush, so i can draw my mouth in.

  7. Jane

    I prefer more sheer lipsticks in general, because I think they complement my “everyday” look better. Also because I find that I tend to like the feel of sheer lipsticks on my lips better than really opaque ones.

  8. I like my lipsticks with a wee bit of shimmer.

  9. Marina

    Soft, semi-opaque, glossy.

  10. Sass

    Matte is my favorite.

    In MAC I love amplified.

  11. Helena

    I like matte, opaque lipsticks (and everything else), and sheer ones that add multidimensional shimmer, but don’t greatly affect color. I’m a sucker for iridescence and bold pigmentation :p

  12. Laura

    If i`m going to wear a lipstick I want it to be opaque and matte.

  13. Amy

    I like glitter, shimmer, frost, and shine! The more, the better! I like a fuller coverage but I usually do a very strong eye, so if the lips have less coverage, that’s okay. As long as they sparkle!

  14. Tina

    Lustres!!! I’m such a huge fan!

  15. Pam

    i like satin or lustre

  16. Crissy

    I prefer creamy opaque color with some sheen. Not really into shimmer. Lustre is okay, when the colors are really bright.

  17. Monet

    Anything but Frosts! Very unflattering on my skin tone, but I loving the textures of Cute-ster and Up the Amp. Those feel great!

  18. MAC has a texture called Lustre. It is The Perfect One. Soft, creamy, not dehydrating, soft and smooth and gives a lot of colour.

  19. Liz

    I like creamy and sheer glossy finish… like clinique butter shine lipstick are perfect

  20. Heatherette87

    I absolutely love cremesheens! They are so nice and creamy you don’t even need a lipgloss!

  21. I like both opaque and sheer lipsticks, but I’m not a huge fan of shimmer. I like a soft sheen for a finish as well. Mattes have great staying power but they tend to make my lips look wrinkly and shriveled if I don’t use a gloss.

  22. I like creamy and frosty lipsticks. I don’t really like sheer or glittery lipsticks.

  23. Jadetive

    I generally like smooth, creamy, opaque lipsticks. I generally do not like glittery, overly shimmery, frosty lipsticks.

  24. Ruth

    A creamy opaque with a slight shimmer.

  25. Sara

    I really love lustre finish

  26. Black Q Tee

    Bolder deeper colors- Matte
    Brighter colors-Satin
    Nude colors-Frosted

  27. Lustre or Glaze, most definitely! Lustres are definitely my favorites!

  28. Miss_M

    I love lustre and cremesheen lipsticks since their texture feels like a balm and is not too thick.
