Advantages: Easy enough to apply, very long lasting and none caking
Disadvantages: Limited amount of colours available, it does need sharpening from time to time
Lip liners are not something I have had a lot of experience with as a makeup user. However as soon I hit my mid 30's they are something that I have accumulated rather a few of! The reason for this is that as we get older our lips seem to lose definition and little lines appear around the mouth. When I bought one it was my intention to stop the bleeding of the colour of my lipsticks and this is one I bought, well actually I own 2 shades of this one as I got it on offer at the time.
This comes in 6 shades, mostly pinks but with a couple of browny shades and a rather neutral one too. The colours I own are called Rose Blush and Mocha. Both come in thin pencil form and down the sides of both we are clearly told what they are and the colour is stated and contact details for Boots are given. They are made of wood with the lip colour running through them and they come with clear lids. The outside of the pencils are the colour of the actual lip colour. they look nice enough these and not one bit cheap.
All you do with these of course is use them as a lip liner.When first bought the pencil nib/colour is sharp and pointy and it gives definition, it goes on smoothly and not too thickly and is easy to use with no drag at all. Once on it stays put and stops lipsticks/glosses running beyond it and it stays there for hours and hours and with no transfer at all, in fact this stays put usually when eve the lipstick/gloss has long since vanished from between the liner!
It does need sharpening from time to time but not too often and being a good long length you get alot of product for your money and it really is great a product this one!
It gets a big thumbs up from me this one and I do think this is a great buy!
Available from Boots and from Boots.com costing just £2.59 each but at the time of writing this review this is on offer at buy one get one half price which is an even better deal!
Summary: A great budget beauty buy once again from this range!
