No matter how matte your lipstick is, sometimes it just bleeds/moves/smudges all over the place! Enter lip liners, tiny colored pencils that let you trace and shape your pout to prevent your chosen color from bleeding.
For today's Cosmo.ph Beauty Wars, we're not just reviewing any lip liner, we're doing shades that will give you that "my lips but better" look so if you're lazy, you can wear it sans lipstick!
The Face Shop Creamy Touch Lipliner in Beige Garden
Where To Buy: SM Megamall, Shangri-La Plaza
What It Is: A soft brush on one end and a creamy and retractable liner on the other for easy lip contouring!
Why We Love It: We loved the color so much that we didn't even want to put a lipstick on top anymore! It was matte, lasted for a few hours, and looked amazing on ALL OF US. And because of its affordable price, we'll be stocking up soon.
Sleek MakeUP Eau La La Liner in Sand Dune
Where To Buy: The SM Store, Zalora
What It Is: An eyeliner and lip liner in one, Eau La La has a soft, long-wearing, and velvety formula which makes it ideal for blending, smudging, and defining.
Why We Love It: This creamy and long-lasting pencil leans on the warmer and rosier side of the nude spectrum, though it still gave us "my lips but better" vibes. But because the pencil was so soft, we accidentally broke it a few times while opening and applying. Oops!
Make Up Factory Color Perfection Lip Liner in Creamy Coffee
Where To Buy: The SM Store
What It Is: Color Perfection's water and smudgeproof formula delivers intense color to define and fill in your lips, ensuring whatever lipstick you put on top won’t budge.
Why We Love It: True to its claims, we were able to get an opaque finish with this liner that didn't smudge. The color, however, was not what we expected—it came off greyish instead of nude on our lips. It looked trendy, but it just wasn't what we were looking for in an MLBB lip pencil.
