In everyday life, I like to wear very little makeup, just to enhance myself. That is how I got to use my lip liner as a lipstick, instead of my beloved matte lipsticks.
So, for today’s review, I chose four lip liners I actually use almost everyday to achieve a more natural and casual makeup look. As you can see, I like pink and berry red shades as it suits well my skintone.
From ” Essence”, which is a drugstore brand that I really like, I got the ” 07 Cute Pink ” and ” 15 Honey Berry “. Those are my go-to pink ones ! They are great because they don’t give me allergy and they are really cheap ! No joke ! I got those for 1.99€ each ! It could not be more on the budget !! 🙂
The next one is actually the first I have bought and I used it for a very long time !! It is the Max Factor “06 Mauve Moment ” and it costs about 8€. It is a bit more expensive but it is a great quality one that lasts long.
The last one is NYX lip liner in “05 Rosey Sunset “. I already made a review of NYX products and this pencil here ! I mostly use it when I go out on a date or to a party !
The thing about using your lip liner as a lipstick instead of your actual lipstick, is that it makes you look very natural, and fresh depending on the color you choose obviously ! I like subtle pink shades for my everyday look, on the weekends or if I am home !
I like using lip liners alone because then I only need one thin pencil that I can carry with me everywhere ! And it does a 2-in-1 job as it contours and color. It is also easier to play with ! I mean you can just quickly brush your lips with it to add very little color, or you can really use it as a pen and get something stronger !
I don’t think it is really difficult to use a lip liner but try and see what works best for you ! At first, I was simply contouring my ”normal” mouth, but now I find that contouring when I ”smile” to the mirror makes my lips looks bigger and fuller so that is how I do it these days !
Feel free to ask me any advice about that subject and I will help you the best I can ! Happy monday everybody !
