    A colloid is a mixture in which finely divided particles are dispersed within a continuous medium so that the mixture can not be filtered easily or settled rapidly.

    A water/oil mixture (milk) is an example of a liquid in liquid colloid. An example of a gas in liquid colloid is a whipped egg white.

    There are some further examples here:

    which also shows how colloids are classified further.
