Lipstick is a cosmetic that applies color, texture, and protection to the lips. Many colors and types of lipstick exist. Some lipsticks are also lip balms, to add both color and hydration. Lipstick can protect our lips from the elements, especially the cold and wind, by forming a protective barrier for our lips. If your lips were already in trouble, the right lipstick will also help to repair cracked, dry lips. It's all about choosing the right lipstick.
