Lip liner is a new love. Until recently, I owned very few. A couple of reds. A dark berry shade, to keep a vampy lip in check. But nothing in a pink or nude. Didn’t see the point.
But lip liner is having a moment. Forget lining your lips, the new way to wear it is as a lipstick itself. Liner all over the lips with a slick of balm on top. A long-wearing alternative to a liquid lipstick.
It was a liquid liptick that led me to the Barry M Lip pencils. I bought the Barry M Lip Kit in Pose, £6.99, for the lipstick, but the liner was the standout.
So I bought 3 of them: 14 Coral, 2 Dark Pink and 17 Blush (swatched above). And they are fantastic. Just the right texture, not too soft, not too stiff. Creamy, long-wearing, highly pigmented. £2.99.
Get them here.
Til next time,
