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!

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 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.

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

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!

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

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

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.

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