When it comes to lipliner it really isn't something I purchase all that often really. However of late I have noticed that I have little definition to my top lip and yep I need to fake it a little bit so decided to invest in some!
I spotted this in my local Boots store costing £4.49 a pencil and decided to get it as I do really like Maybelline make up usually and it's a brand I really trust.
The Pencil Itself:
Well mine is slightly different as what is on the top of this review photograph, mine is the same colour as the colour of lipliner I chose and to one end there is a clear plastic see-through cap/lid. Down the side of the pencil in silver writing I'm told it is Maybelline Hydra Extreme 'Contour des levres confort et longue tenue', long wearing precision lip liner and the colour is written discreetly around the bottom of it. Nice long length pencil this is!
This is a really wonderful and easy to use lipliner and I use it all the time now! I bought myself a neutral colour I can blend in with all of my lip-glosses and lipsticks and now I've used it so pleased am I, I will buy more of these in the future!
The colour comes off the pencil not too thickly and if you keep it sharpened (which is easy to do as the wood is light and smooth) precision can be really achieved and what is nice about this is you don't have to sharpen it after every single use because you don't use too much colour at all and it takes a while to blunt it.
I can use this as a lipliner or as a lip colour which is dry and top it off with clear gloss if desired. Once on the lips it stays on for hours, is slightly moisturising but not at all transferable which means you may lose your lipstick before you do the outline!
All round this is a really nice quality and nifty product...well done Maybelline I'm impressed!
Available in all good chemists etc.
