Hello everyone! its been a while since i last did a lippie post and so here i am! I have never invested in lip liners i always thought they were a way makeup brands trick us into buying something we already have i.e lipsticks, but after using one which i borrowed from a friend i have probably been the biggest advocate of lip liners, not only do they make your lipstick last longer but you can actually wear them as a separate lip product, pretty sure half of the world already knew that but i’m just letting my new found fascination sink in.
So quite naturally i went shopping to get me some lip liners, as one would do. I really wanted to get the Rivaj Uk liners because thats the one i used but ended up buying the Christine lip liners, they are SO good and there are so many colors to choose from!
I picked up 3; a nude pink called lilac pink, a cool toned red called flame red,and warm toned red called Burn red.
Lets talk about their packaging, pretty standard nothing too fancy. As for the formula; i won’t call it creamy but its defiantly not dry i don’t know how to explain it so here is me trying; its not creamy but its also not as if you are drawing with a carbon pencil on your lips, its a good in between.
Application wise i find it better if you apply vaseline first and then the liner, or if you have naturally well maintained lips then you can skip the vaseline, for me i think vaseline is a must so thats how i use them.
The color pigmentation is insane, i love all three colors i picked, i love how i can dress them up and down, with dark lipsticks you’re just like ‘bam thats a deep red how do i get this to be work appropriate?!’ but with these you can build up the color however you prefer, also they are very long lasting on the lips. I have to say they are a bit drying but if you use any lip balm then you won’t have that problem.
Sharpening them is also pretty easy, all you need is a big opening sharpener, also i find that you don’t need to sharpen them that much because the tip stays pointy for a while, I’ve been using them since 3 weeks now and i dint have to sharpen them yet, so far so good.
Here is me wearing them:
These are available fairly easily and are very easy on the pocket 🙂
