Hope your hump day is going well. I have been super obsessed with the Kylie Jenner 90's dark nude lip which has kind of inspired today's post. According to what I have heard everywhere she uses MAC Whirl pencil to fill in her lips & possibly a lipstick over. I love the look she has created and have tried to recreate it myself.
During this hunt I got to thinking about the importance of lip liner. Fro a long time I only owned one lip liner Urban Decay's Ozone... If you haven't heard of this liner it is a clear lip liner that helps prevent lipstick from feathering. As my interest in makeup grew so did my interest in lip liner. I have a decent collection of high end & drugstore lip liners. I'll list them all at the end of this post.
Most women use lip liners to, well, line their lips & this is how they are marketed. Recently I have read beauty articles that have suggested that you should line your lips with a lip liner or lip pencil. Then use that is the same color as your own lips, then use that liner to "fill in" your lips this is gives you a great base for your lipstick or lip gloss. These are my reasons for loving lip liner.
Lip liners make great matte lipsticks! Most lip liners give you a creamy, highly-pigmented, none shiny look. If you feel like the lip pencil alone is to matte I usually tap on a little bit of Vaseline over my lip liner.
Lip liners can be found in many colors. Any brand of makeup usually sell a nice assortment of colors. Usually the rang in the neutrals, reds, corals, pinks & something vampy. One brand's "nude" lip liner may be too pinkish for you, while another brand's "nude" will be more beige. For me my favorite nude lip liners are MAC Whirl & NYX Natural. For Vampy shades MAC Nightmoth & NYX Auburn,
Many lip liners are inexpensive. If you're a person who likes to save money this is a great way to do so. I have brought lip liners as cheap as $.69 to as expensive as $16. My favorites to buy are from NYX they are very creamy, easy to match with most lipsticks, & they have a nice array of colors for $2.99 a pencil.
The only downside,is that it takes a little more time to fill in your lips with a lip liner compared that quick swipe you can do with a lipstick tube.
