So what do they do?
- It creates a barrier between your lips in the colour - which anyone who has ever used a darker OCC Lip Tar can tell you is important otherwise you end up with green lips for a few days. I may know this from experience.
- They help stop the lipstick from spreading into those fine lines around your lips, also known as bleeding. They also can change the shade of a lipstick slightly so it's more flattering.
- But the biggest plus to liners is that you can be at an event or even work for hours without the chance to touch up your lips so eventually your lipstick will wear off but by having liner underneath, you are ensuring that there is always, always colour on your lips. It also makes the fact that your lipstick has worn off much less noticeable.
I like the texture on all of these but the reds. The reds were horrendous to work with. Let's take a close look at how they work on the lips shall we?
So there you go. Mostly a good bunch, crappy reds = lots of rage. Want to see how they look with the Essence Lipsticks over the top? Of course you do.
I'm going to attempt to back this up tomorrow with my favourite tips and tricks for luscious lips. Do you have anything you want to ask me about lipsticks or liners? Lip care in general? What are your thoughts on the Essence lip range? Favourites and not so much? Have you tried them yourself?
That's it from me today, be awesome to each other.
