Lip liner used to never be a part of my beauty regime. I used to think that it was for people who couldn’t paint within the lines, when applying lipstick. Well, not only did I find that I had a hard time staying within my lip lines, but I also found that I needed lip liner to give my lipstick something to cling to.
Maybe MAKE UP FOR EVER can help in my quest to have a clean lip look. They have released twelve lip liners, that fall into three families: nude, pink, and red.
“Draw the perfect pout and enhance lips naturally using MAKE UP FOR EVER’s new High Precision Lip Pencil. This beautiful collection of pencils come in 12 shades divided into three
natural tone categories – nude, pink and red – all curated by professional makeup artists as the best
natural shades to define and enhance lips with extraordinary precision.”
The High Precision Lip Pencil ensures:
- Optimal color results: A combination of oils with super-emollient properties boosts and
enhances color on application and all day
- Nourishing feel: Olive oil and glycerin complex help keep the lips nourished
- Long-lasting results: Candelilla and Carnauba wax blend help set the colors on the lips
First up is N°23, a brown-toned rosy pink. This one was a tad bit dry during application.
Next up is N°14, which is a beautiful praline mocha. This one was much easier to apply than the previous pencil.
While I do think that all lip pencils should come in a retractable tube, I still enjoy pencil form, because it means that you can sharpen it to a fine tip and get a very precise application, which was the case for these pencils. The product was soft enough to glide on my lips fairly easily, but not so soft that it crumbled when applying with pressure. Even though they felt a bit dry around the centre of my lips, when being worn as a lipstick (most lip liners do, in my experience), they blended nicely, so they’ll be good to wear as a liner that fades into the centre of my lips, underneath lipstick.
You can find that MAKE UP FOR EVER High Precision Lip Pencils for $22 CAD at Sephora.
