A ‘lip liner’ is to ‘lipstick’ just like how a ‘primer’ is to ‘foundation’. A good lip liner helps define the lips and makes your lipstick look and appear better and last longer. Outlining your lips with a good lip liner will make them look instantly fuller and defined and ready for the lipstick application.
LIP CHEAT is a rich, velvety lip liner glides effortlessly over the lips and has the power to completely re-shape, re-size and balance your lips. Always match your lip liner to your lipstick shade to perfect your lip shape and make your lipstick stay in place from desk ‘til dusk.
In today’s post I am reviewing a red lip liner – KISS And Tell from Charlotte Tilbury
• Smoothes over texture for a seamless line
• No feathering or transfer
• Lasts up to 6 hours so your lips keep their shape and don’t smudge
Let me start talking about the packaging – First of all- it’s not retractable. I would have wanted the pencils with a twist-up function, It’s very difficult to sharpen each time!
Shade – The shade ‘ Kiss N Tell’ is a scarlet red shade. I found it hard to apply initially. But, that’s the whole point of lipliners right. A good lip liner should have a creamy consistency and also little hard to glide on the contour of your lips, to have enough pigmentation to be worn under a lipstick without altering its colour but also to be worn easily by itself and to be long lasting for the lipstick to also last longer on the lips.
Within a couple of swipes, it felt soft and silk smooth to apply. With a lipbalm underenath- it didn’t accentuate fine lines on lips/dry out lips much. A good lip liner help extend the wear-time of lipstick.
Here are some of the close-ups of the product.
Pigmentation, Longevity – The shades are really pigmented. Only drawback I’d think of is the packaging. I wish I’ d twist the pencil up. In the lip swatches. I have used So Marilyn lipstick on top of this liner in the last pic. I just love it! It lasted for a really long time which I loved!
Also I find this lipliner works best with matte lip formulas. Once used to fully fill in your lips prior to applying lipstick, The non tacky/waxy consistency hold the color really longer. If you are looking for a good red lipliner to be worn along with your red lipstick family- you can give this a try. The only con I’d think of is the sharpening part.
Name of this lip liner pencil is “Lip Cheat Re-Size & Re-Shape Lip Liner” which means this is a multi tasking product. use this pencil not only to line, but also to “outline” your lips to create an illusion of perfectly shaped (re-shape) and fuller (re-size) lips. Such a classic term to call ‘ Lip Cheat’. Overall, it is easy to apply. has a creamy consistency while applying after initial 3-4 swipes. the non tacky/waxy formula holds the color for a long time without making your lips dry. However, for extremely dry lips- I suggest you to use a good lipbalm. In the lip swatch above, I am wearing Charlotte Tilbury So Marilyn lipstick on top of this gorgeous liner! I am loving it! A must buy if you have more reds in your lipstick collection. Only con I’d think of is the sharpening part.
