Applying lip liner is an everyday must for me. I can’t ever go a day without wearing it, and it’s one of my makeup wardrobe staples. When it comes to nailing down my favourites, it was surprisingly easy. It was obvious that most would be nude/brown tones, as they are what I reach for over most others. I swear by these lip liners, for their formulas and pigmentation as well as beautiful shades. Want to find out my 5 must have lip liners? Let’s go!
NYX Slide On Waterproof Lip Liner in Nude Suede Shoes
Want the perfect mid toned nude? This is the winner. Not only is it super affordable, the formula of this liner is incredibly creamy and glides on so smoothly. I find this my must have lip liner to travel with as it matches almost any nude lipstick.
MAC Lip Liner in Brick
It took me a very long time to find the perfect red lip liner that I can trust with either true red lipsticks or deep reds – thanks to MAC I’ve found my perfect match! Many of you may already know the formula of MAC liners, but aside from it being a little stiff (as they have a wooden nib applicator) they are super long lasting and hydrating. This is the ultimate lip liner for red lip lovers!
If there was only one lip liner I could use and own, it would be this one. These liners from Urban Decay are the creamiest and smoothest I have ever used. It’s a mauve nude, which is perfect for contouring the lips. I typically pair this with MAC’s Viva Glam II.
MAC Lip Liner in Boldly Bare
Yes, another nude. I just cant help it can I! This one from MAC is a must have for your makeup bag if you wear true nude shades. I usually pair this with Honeylove or Yash from MAC, and it lasts throughout the entire day. I also find it works well with brown lipsticks on top.
Rimmel Lip Liner in Cappuccino
After a bargain lip liner that’s a perfect dupe for the MAC formula? Then Rimmel’s lip liners are it! My favourite shade from the range is Cappucino, a dark brown nude that also works well to contour with. I wear this on days that I want to wear a brown shade instead of typical nude, as it works so well! Definitely pick this one up if you’re looking for drugstore dupes that are affordable.
