A Fast & Affordable Natural Lip

If you follow me on Twitter you might now that I’ve tried being on a spending band make up wise and you might now I’ve lasted about two weeks until I caved in because of some lipliners. I was in one of my favorite drugstores just browsing the make up aisles when I came across the Essence stand and spotted their lipliners for 95 cents. 95 CENTS! That’s incredibly cheap. Then I also remembered that Maria (one of my favorite beauty bloggers. You need to check her out!) recently wrote a really positive review about them.

Since they were 95 cents I grabbed a few of them but in today’s post I’ll only show you my most used ones, which are the shades 011 In The Nude and 07 Cute Pink.

Obviously you can use them as regular lipliners, however, I’ve been applying them all over my lips and use them as lipsticks and they create an almost perfect natural every day lip.

The lipliners are very pigmented and surprisingly soft, which is why they make such great lipsticks. They are completely matte and you can use them to make your lips look a bit more voluminous, which is always a plus.

What surprised me the most is how long lasting they are. Considering the cheap price they last their fair share, which I wasn’t expecting at all. I liked most of the colors I got from this range but these two are by far my favorite as I think they are so perfect for  occasions where you might want to wear some lipstick but then you kind of don’t. I don’t know how to explain this but when I go to attend a lecture or seminar I would feel a bit weird with a bright red lip, especially those 9am lectures, but with these lovely lipliners I can still wear a hint of color.

As always I have some swatches for you.


The nude shade isn’t my favorite nude shade ever but it’s quite a lovely color though and perfect for everyday. Although the swatch of the pink lipliner looks quite intense in this pictures it is not that of a bold color. Once applied on my lips it basically looks like a very natural shade of pink.

I just think these are perfect for days when you just can’t be bothered with putting much effort into your lips make up but still want a bit of volume and maybe a hint of color. You can just smack these on and your done. Plus they fit into every bag, so they’re always quite good for one the go. And another great thing about them is that they’re not drying, which I was a little worried about.
