From the main data, there were only a few persuasive techniques and linguistic features which appeared in captions of @Jeffreestarcosmetics and @Kylieccosmetics Instagram accounts. Persuasive techniques in the captions of each Instagram accounts are different.

Syntactical features are short sentence, long noun phrase, imperative, present tense, simple and colloquial, ambiguity, and incomplete sentence.
