So… Are Lipsticks, Lip Glosses, and Lip Balms The Same Thing?

Are you new to the makeup world? Confused as hell as why the lips has so much makeup? Aren’t lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms the same thing? Well, we’re dedicated to help you and well, answer all your lip mysteries. Don’t worry, we won’t just be coming up with theories. We’re satisfying you with the answers themselves as we take you on the journey into the world of makeup, especially as a newbie. After all, every new person is welcome and before you know it, by the end of this post, you’ll have more knowledge about makeup already.

OK. So. First thing’s first. What are lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms and are they the same thing? OK, well we’re going to give it to you straight. As much as you thought they sounded like synonyms all this time, lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms are completely different things. Weird, right? But hey, the world of makeup will continue to surprise us everyday and this is not the end.

So, what exactly makes them different? Now that’s an interesting inquisitive question to which we have incredibly simple answers to, because we really don’t want you to get even more confused. You’re searching for answers — not more questions.

To start off the differentiating, we put lipsticks first — one of the most known makeup tools in the world. Literally everybody knows this and that even includes one year old babies on their strollers (we might be exaggerating a bit there, but hey it could be true). Lipsticks apparently stay more rather than any other lip product and they have more color and coverage on your lip.

Lip glosses are more of a liquid type compared to lipsticks and unlike lipsticks, they don’t stay as long as expected, but it does make sure your lips looks shinier and plumper than before.

Lastly, lip balms on the other hand are dedicated to keep your lips puffy, kissable looking, and moisturized.

Now you know all the details, at least if anyone ever asks you about it, you can finally answer them with a confident look on your face instead of a couple shrugs here and there.
