This is simply the best lip liner I have ever used! As most women of a certain age know, as the years progress, lipstick doesn't just stay on your lips but tends to bleed into the tiny little lines around your mouth. Well, fear not, I'm here to tell you that Rimmel have the answer to your problem and at a very reasonable price too.
This versatile little piece of essential make up looks like a pencil and behaves like a pencil but without the necessity to sharpen every so often (something I never seem to have mastered the art of doing) because this is a propelling pencil. The applicator and cap are plastic and roughly colour matched to the product inside. The item is sturdy enough to protect the product and although it may not be the most beautiful piece of equipment in your make up bag, you're paying for what's inside rather than a lot of packaging. The lip liner design has recently been altered and now has a diagonal tip which helps to get a good shape when applying.
I tend to use a neutral pinky brown shade of lipstick, which goes with everything, so my preferred choice of the Exaggerate lip liner range is number 018 Addiction, but the range consists of six colours which suit all skin tones from the lightest to the darkest.
The product is creamy without being sticky and goes on smoothly. A word of caution here: don't have too much of the liner turned up or it will break if you apply too much pressure.
I find lip liners work best if you apply it all over your lips and then powder down before applying your lipstick. That way the colour lasts much longer. In fact, sometimes I don't even bother with the lipstick at all because the coverage is good and it looks as good as lipstick. So I just add a slick of clear lip gloss and the job's done.
I bought my last lip liner from Superdrug at £3.49. The Rimmel range is widely available in both chemists and supermarkets and the price seems to be pretty similar wherever you buy it. The actual lip liner product is 0.25 grams which may not seem much but a little bit goes a very long way. As I said, I cover all my lips so I'm applying generously every day and find that it lasts me for approximately eight to ten weeks. Obviously, if you are only applying around the outside of the lips, it would last much longer.
I hope I've managed to enthuse you enough to try this lip liner. I know you won't be disappointed.
I bought this product as I had recently purchased a bright red lipstick and wanted a lip liner to define my lips and prevent the lip colour from bleeding. I was initially attracted to this lip liner due to the bright colour of the packaging, which made it stand out above its competitors.
Each of the different shades of this product (I believe there are between 6 and 9 different ones out there, depending on where you choose to purchase it) are represented in the colour of the packaging, making it easy to see which one is the perfect shade for your needs. As I had opted for "024 Red Diva", I was now the proud owner of a bright red packaged lip liner. This product comes with a plastic lid in matching colour, which you can hear 'click' into place when replaced onto the lip liner - making it very hard to fall off in your make-up bag.
Upon pulling the lid off, you are greeted by a long thin plastic tube, which protects the stick of lip liner from snapping. Holding this tube, you can rotate the bottom of the product to make the lip liner visible - however, be sure only to expose a small amount of the product as it may snap off whilst applying if you extend it outwards too much. This handy feature also means that no sharpening is needed, you can simply extend more the product outwards if desired.
The liner itself is very soft, gliding on smoothly without the need to press down hard. It is easy to achieve a precise line with even product distribution - so there are no frustrating lumps of the product to smooth out. This lip liner is a great combination of being both long lasting and yet also easily removed at the end of the day.
At around £4, if you're looking for something new then I believe that this product is a worthwhile option to consider.
I've always wore lipliner, ever since I left school. I have quite a thin lips and lipstick alone, I thought, used to make my lips look really tiny, however when I where lipliner, even though I go around my natural lip, it enhances them and makes them look a lot fuller than what they actually are. It also gives more definition to the lips and looks quite acttractive when I pout.
I am not too fussy with what lip liner I use, however there are some bad products on the market which are really harsh and you have to press on really hard to do the outline, so I do prefer a soft pencil and I am fussy when it comes to the shade, as I only tend to go for brownish lip liners.
After using Avon Glimmerstick for a long while in Rich Ginger, when I ran out, its the end of the world, especially when I haven't got that back up plan, I have to go out quickly and find that alternative product. Tesco is normally my first point of call, because its only down the road from me, and if I am looking for a back up plan, Rimmel is normally the first brand that I will consider.
The Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner comes in a colour coded plastic pencil, which is great when you are initially looking at the product as the actual outer casing is the same colour as the shade inside of as near as it can be. It makes it easier when you are looking for a particular shade.
When you take the lid of the product, the bottom rotates around and the lip liner moves up as you rotate it and displays a very delicate, soft looking crayon.
To apply the product it is very easy, I find you need a steady hand with lip liner because one slip and it can make you lips look a strange shape and also make a mess if applied wrong or trying to make your lips bigger. I have no problem in applying lip liner, I could close my eyes and do, I have been doing for that long. The product goes on very smoothly, although the crayon is soft, it never coms off in clumps like some product do and you get a fine even line rounf your lip. It is essential that you don't push it up to far as it is very delicate and could snap very easily.
The product is available in 6 shades, however majority of them are all very similar and ar brownish colours so when I went to purchase one, I actually purchased three because they were all very similar. The shades are: Addiction, Epic, Eastern Snob, Ultimate, Red Diva and Obsession.
Rimmel is available at all supermarkets and toiletry store, and the lip liners are around £3.99 each to buy, which do alst quite a while, even when re-applied a couple of times a day and I would consider them a really good buy.
