Tired of the same old makeup look? Set your usual go-to lipstick aside for a bit and give the new lip pencil and lipliner trend a try! The new ‘in’ thing is to use a luxurious, long-lasting lipliner as lipstick, coating your full pout in the product.
Well, if it’s bold colour and a matte finish that you’re after, some lipliners give regular lipsticks a real run for their money! Lipliners are usually extremely pigment-rich and, more often than not, substantially cheaper than many of the lipsticks currently available on the market.
Intrigued and wondering which lipliner is best? Here are our top picks for good liners that you simply cannot go wrong with.
Lancôme Le Lipstique Lip Colouring Stick with Brush
Soft, creamy and waterproof – this lipliner is an all-in-one. It is also smudge-resistant and comes with a brush for easy blending. Vamp up your look with the Mauvelle shade.
Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner
This lip liner has been created with the sole purpose of defining and emphasising your pout. It is available in a wide range of muted shades, so it’s incredibly versatile and looks great on all skin tones. For a rock-chick look, give the Rich Chocolate hue a go.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
This waterproof lip pencil comes in 46 lip-smacking shades. It is as moisturising as it is long-lasting and boasts ingredients like cottonseed oil and Vitamin E. Go bold with hot pink when you choose the Bittersweet variant.
There you have it. It’s time to fall in line with the popular lip trend and do some makeup shopping!
