Lip Liners & Eyebrow Care

Hello lovely humans. Today I am writing a little review type thing on some lip pencils I purchased, and an eyebrow definer I'm using at the mo. In my last post you will have seen me getting excited over some new lipsticks I bought recently. However, since I have been expanding my lipstick collection, I noticed I was missing something quite important. Lip liners! I only had one red one, which is great when I wear my red lipstick, but what about the other shades I have? I had to make another trip to Boots. Sorry not sorry.



Okay so let's just stop and appreciate how amazingly gorgeous these colours are. I am in love! I went for the Maybelline Colour Sensational lip liners because unless I've been blind while in Boots, I found that they had the widest range of colours, and actually had the colours I felt I needed. I also trust the brand as I have a couple of lipsticks from this range too, and I really like them, so it kinda felt like an obvious purchase.

I picked these colours because, as already mentioned, they're beauts, and also because I feel like now I can pretty much match them up to all the colours I have/will buy. I've already got a red one, so that's got bright reds sorted. Sweet Pink 132 will be perfect for pale pinks and nude shades. I think it's such a cute colour and it's actually made me think I need to invest in some more paler shades.

Intense Pink, 140 is perfect for slightly darker pinks, and I've actually mixed it with Kate Moss's matte lipstick in shade 107, to create a deep pinky red. I knew I liked the colour when I bought it, but it wasn't until I got home that I realised just how much I like it. Seriously. The first time I used it I didn't even bother with lipstick as this turned out to be basically the perfect and most flattering colour ever. I just popped on some Lip Cote and job done. This lip liner is already getting a lot of use and I'm so happy I bought it.

Finally, Midnight Plum 338 is what I was looking for when I decided I need some lip liners. A lot of my darker lip colours have a plum undertone, and honestly this complements them so well, and is nice and dark but not over the top. I now feel like my lips look a lot more complete when I wear darker shades, and ahh I'm so happy! I'm sorry I'm getting so excited over a few lip liners but as a newbie to the lip world, I'm excited okay? :D

The texture of all of these lip liners is great. They're all quite soft, but not so much you have to sharpen them every five minutes. They're also super pigmented which is fab, I hate liners where you have to go back and fourth over the same area, only for a minuscule amount of colour to come out. These are so easy to use and effortless in that sense. I also quite like the packaging. I mean, to be honest, you can't really package lip liners differently can you, but still, they're nice.

Next up, brows:

We all know eyebrows frame the face, so it's important that they look right. I recently invested in a simple brow pencil from Collection, which is good, but I had a few problems with it. The texture is super soft, and it requires sharpening all the time, which isn't a huge issue, just more annoying more than anything. The main problem though was the colour, I just felt it was a little too dark. Now, this could be because when I got it my hair was freshly dyed, and therefore super dark, so it looked fine. But now my hair has faded to my natural brown shade, which is not dramatically different, by my brows were looking a little odd. So I picked up this little thang.


I was a bit worried about buying it, because as you can see, it's blonde. However I have read around and it's apparently better to go lighter rather than darker, and after using it, I can see why. This isn't a pencil, but a definer, ooh fancy word ;) I really like the fact it's not a pencil, as that means no sharpening! Just twist and boom you can use it. The colour is more of a light brown than blonde, and when on my brows it just blends in and looks right, rather than odd. I can only really say good about this product, the only thing I'm a little peeved about it how little of the product there actually is. I twisted it up all the way out of curiousty, and was kinda disappointed to see there isn't that much product, however, it was really cheap so I suppose I can't complain. Despite this, I'll probably be buying again as I know it works. 

Well, that just about rounds up this post, hopefully I've given you some options if you're thinking of buying any lip liners or brow products, and I hope you enjoyed reading. 

Toodles
