If you're going for sophistication and a modern look, then matte lipstick is the way to go. Mattes are smooth and sultry, and offers longer-lasting pigment compared to other finishes. Matte lipsticks also works well for evening looks because of their high-intensity, which is also why it can be a bit overwhelming to use matte in broad daylight.
It is also important to note that mattes can also be very drying on the lips, and since it gives out flat, opaque pigment on the lips, it can have an aging effect on your overall appearance. So make sure to exfoliate, and use lip moisturizing products to avoid having flaky and chapped lips.
Glossy lips are mostly associated with being fun and carefree. Though they have less lasting power than mattes, glosses are quick and easy to apply and give a fresh, natural look to your make-up. It's the best lipstick option if you're looking to pair them with casual, every day looks and wear them on days when you need extra moisture. If you are a lipstick newbie, start with using glosses - you hardly ever need a mirror on this one!
Glosses are more focused on adding shine and texture to the lips rather than altering the lip color. So it isn't recommended for date nights or special events, or you'll be washed out in photos.
