People have been using lip makeup for a very long time. For example, people from Mesopotamia used a sort of paste made of clay to put over the lips. In Egypt both male and female used paints based on metals as lip makeup. Other cultures as well used different pigments to give colour to their lips.
It was in the 20th century when the lip makeup industry appeared and developed a huge variety of lipsticks. Nowadays we can find lip makeup in different textures, with different finishes and effects and in an unimaginable variety of colours.

Different finishes of lipsticks
Most of the lip products come in different finishes. Nowadays, the number of finishes is increasing constantly and brands are developing different fantasy finishes as metallic, iridescent, holographic, duo-chrome, and more. The main and most common type of finishes are:
That is one of the most popular and most comfortable finishes. Satin lip products are normally hydrating but they don’t last long on the lips and transfer a lot.
