Top Tuesday | Lip Liners | + A Dupe!

Top 5 Lip Liners | Review + Swatches |NYX Slim Pencil in Pale Pink IT Cosmetics YLBB Lip Liner Stain in Buff Nude MAC Lip Pencil in Subculture Colourpop Pencil in Aquarius Marc Jacobs Beauty Poutliner in Primrose

For today's post I am sharing my Top 5 Lip liners. Last week I shared my Top 5 Concealers, so I wanted to continue this week with the "Top Tuesday" series. Over the past few months, I've really been trying to use lip liners. I love using them under my liquid lipstick to prevent my lipstick from smudging, or I love using them as a matte lipstick.

The five lip liners I have been loving are:
NYX Slim Pencil in Pale Pink- This is a beautiful light pink with a light purple undertone. These NYX lip liners are $3 and they are so creamy and great quality for the price.

IT Cosmetics YLBB Lip Liner Stain in Buff Nude- I love idea behind these lip liners because they are supposed to be YLBB (Your Lips But Better). This shade is a warm nude that is perfect for my lip color. It really is my lip but better which makes it a great base for other lip products.

MAC Lip Pencil in Subculture- The MAC lip liners are definitely the driest I have ever tried. I have to warm this up in my hand before I apply it on my lips. But I really like the shade of this because it neutralizes my lip color, and it lasts forever on the lips.

Colourpop Pencil in Aquarius- I have to say that the Colourpop lip pencil is definitely my favorite out of all of these. It's the perfect soft pink nude. I love wearing this alone as a matte lipstick. Much like my other favorites, it works so well to even out my lip color, and to use as a base for other lip products.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Poutliner in Primrose- Lastly, the Marc Jacobs lip pencil is described as a cocoa spice.

If you look at the swatches below you'll see that the bottom two look very similar- I didn't even realize this until now! The Colourpop Pencil in Aquarius and the Marc Jacobs Beauty Poutliner in Primrose are basically identical. They look the same, and as for the formula they are both really creamy and pigmented. So you're welcome, the Colourpop Pencil is $5 and the Marc Jacobs Poutliner is $24.

I have to admit that most of these lip liners look very similar, what can I say, I love nude pink liners! These all work great alone, or under other lip products. These are the top five I reach for when I feel like I need a lip liner.

  3. Lip liners are one of the few products that don't bother me. I have a few for very dark or very bright colours, but I don't tend to notice my lipsticks bleeding (especially since I wear very matte lips). The NYX liners sounds like a dream though, so I may have to invest in a few!

  5. I've recently got some of the Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks and adore them so I really want to try the normal lipsticks. Love the look of the Too Faced Liquid Lipstick and the shade you have is gorgeous!
