~The Lip Liner ~
This lip liner comes in several pink/red shades, Rose, Nude and Red Wine being a few of them. It is retractable and you use like a normal retractable pencil.
No hefty boxes or unnecessary packaging for Ruby & Millie. The Lip liner is, as is in the Ruby & Millie stands. It is completely silver in colour with Ruby & Millie in faint brushed Silver writing on the side of the pencil and at the bottom of the pencil is a clear sticker with the item name and colour. Their packaging is not over the top, there are no 'labels' everywhere. It is understated, yet cool.
~Tried & Tested~
I have used this product for sometime and always pick it up when Boots have a £5 off voucher going on (when you spend £10 in Boots get £5 off Ruby & Millie products) as this product usually cost £9.50. This lip liner helps keep my lipstick in shape and makes it last longer. Make up professionals usually say to match your liner to the colour of your lips. I match my liner to the lipstick.
My lipstick is not Ruby & Millie, however I have a colour that is similar. I put the liner over almost all of my lips then go over with lip stick , then blot (and check the teeth of course). This will last me a good few hours that just lipstick on its own. Because the lipliner is more like lipstick in a pencil form than a pencil it doesn't drag the skin and also keeps your lips fairly moist until you need to reapply.
A great product I will continue buying (as long as I have some sort of discount - we are credit crunching after all !
