What is a UV Lipstick?
A UV lipsticks or glow in the dark lipsticks are neon pigmented lipsticks that glow under the black light or in the dark giving the wearer a vivid colour. They work under the principle of radium for the sake of generalisation and shine bright when subjected to low light or no light at all.
During the daytime, the lipstick shines normally like any other pigmented lip colour but in the dark or under the introduction of a black light, it will get its fluorescence on and shine bright typically in a neon-ish shade.

Popularity of the UV Lipstick
Contrary to popular belief, the UV lipsticks are a hit among a lot of people not just the concert goers and the party mongers. As these lipsticks come in bright happy colours, they can be used on a daily basis when you are out and about in the day. The formulae of these lipsticks are often very rich and creamy. The reason behind the formula of these lipsticks being such is that if it is creamier than the regular lipstick, it will provide easy application and fuller coverage. The only downside to these lipsticks are that they tend to get very dry after application and they may need to re-applied properly if you want to avoid chapped and dry lips. The one solution to this problem can be to moisturise your lips to the full with a nice hydrating lip balm a half hour before application after which you can wear the lipstick to its full consistency.
