***** Introduction *****
I have recently revamped my make up collection, as the saying goes out with the old and in with the new. So that is exactly what I have done.
I am sorry to say but you will all have to put up with make up reviews as I have many that I would like to share with you some are hot and some are not, so here goes with another of my newer buys.
Here I am going to review a Body shop lip liner, this is something that was given to me as a freebie at a party as is not usually something I would buy on my own merit, but thank heavens as it is truly fantastic.
***** The Lip Liner *****
The lip liner its self does not look like anything special, it is very similar to a child's colouring pencil in appearance and is basically used in much the same way. It has a wooden outer casing and silver cap to protect the nib when it is not in use, the actual liner is incased within the wooden casing and is emitted when it is drawn on to the lips.
It is a very simple design that is very easy to use and maintain, when you have used the liner and the product tip runs down you simply sharpen it with a pencil sharpener. So as you can imagine it will last a long while.
If you don't know much about lip liners then I will tell you that it is used to define and line your lips, many just apply it to their natural lip outlines but personally like to cover my entire lip area as I find it helps to maintain the lipstick or lip gloss that is applied to the lips afterwards.
Choosing the perfect shade can be difficult, so if you are wearing it with a lip stick I would recommend you get the shade that is closest to the lip stick shade, but if you choose to wear it alone you buy the shade you think will suit you best.
As this is a body shop product you can get it in various shades, starting from pale pinks and browns to darkest of dark colours, so you will get something to suit your needs.
Using the liner could not be easier, you just apply it directly to your lips with the handy pencil design this is very easy to do. I found it to be very smooth in consistency which is hard to believe as it was hard to touch when it was in the pencil, but once is was on my lips they felt smooth and conditioned.
The only thing I hated about this was the face that if my lips were a little dry of cracked it showed everything up, but I soon learned that a little bit of Vaseline rubbed into them before applying it helped hydrate them and stopped them from appearing cracked.
As I have mentioned this was a freebie, so I didn't pay for it but while browsing the body shop catalogue recently I found they are on sale for £6.50 each, which sounds very dear but it really is a good product that will last a long time, so in my opinion it is worth the price.
***** My Views *****
I have certainly been converted into a lip liner lover, which I thought would be impossible a few months ago. I loved this as it was unlike any other I have tried before, as it was so simple to use and it felt smooth and not at all thick of bitty like many other cheaper brands.
It just goes to show that the more you spend the better the quality, as I have spent out on them in the past and always hated the out come, but with this I can certainly say it is here to stay.
I recommend all you ladies to try this you will not be disappointed, as you will get smooth, soft and thicker fuller looking lips.
