    Lip coat might've been used to mean "lipstick" (I found the term on some sites selling lipsticks but I'm not sure how common it is).

    I think the proper term is "combination skin" and it's normally used when you have an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and dry cheeks.

    Balancing might mean different things but say you've got a balancing toner. Its job is to regulate excess oil without leaving your skin bone-dry.

    I'm not sure what you meant by asking if those terms were 'true'. I've seen both used. Manufacturers go for all kinds of names to make you convince what they've got to offer is top-quality, highly specialist, and basically working wonders. So their products cleanse, tone, balance, moisturise, and cook dinner.
