A liar is a person who changes the facts of an event or situation by giving details to the story that are untrue. The change of facts are not a misinterpretation or a unsubstantial lapse of memory; the altered information is intentional and, more often than not, benefit the liar or make him/her seem more appealing.

And a hypocrite is someone who portrays a certain lifestyle, or a deep set value, often preaching against a particular behavior or act, but secretly (or occasionally openly) partaking in what it is he/she publicly scorns.
