There are many different types of lipsticks out there and a lady truly is spoilt for choice when trying to pick one (luckily, I get to have all of them – evil grin). The type of lipstick you use and also the colour can be used according to your mood or simply the shape of your lips. Today the lipstick market contains an assortment of products with many effects and characteristics. Picking the perfect shade of lipstick is only half the job ladies – when it comes to lipstick, texture is just as important.
Check out the various lipstick textures below:

This from news24.com:
Johannesburg – Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Prophet Mboro, has rejected claims that he went to heaven on Easter Sunday and had pictures taken with Jesus Christ.
Motsoeneng said because he had not yet died, there was no reason for him to have visited heaven.
“If I had pictures of heaven, my whole family and church would have seen it. I would never insult Jesus like that,” he said on Tuesday.
Pictures alleging to be of Motsoeneng in heaven reportedly appeared on a Facebook page created under his name. Someone claiming to be his spokesperson also allegedly said the pictures were for sale.
Motsoeneng has since reportedly said he was unaware of the person purporting to be his spokesperson.
On Tuesday, the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) laid criminal charges against Motsoeneng.
It said he had failed to comply with a summons to hand over audited financial statements during their investigation into him and his church, the Incredible Happenings Ministries, for commercialisation of religion.
