I am pretty sure that Kim Mathers has permanently scarred me in regards to wearing lip liner.
But I received samples of Jordana EasyLiner for Lips Mechanical Lip Liner, and as a beauty blogger, I realized I had to do the right thing and take it for a test drive. I had to overcome my fear of the lip liner, for the sake of BeautyJudy.com and you, the reader! (hehe – I know, I get dramatical).
Don’t they all look pretty? And innocent? (except when used in the wrong, heavy hands…*insert evil laugh*)
They look nice swatched:
From left to right: Sedona Red, Plush Plum, Cabernet, Silver Lilac, Baby Berry, Tawny, Coco Loco, Terra Kiss and Rock N’ Rose.
Check out the tip:
EasyLiner for Lips, made in the USA, has a retractable tip, with no need for sharpening. A couple things I noticed during my “test drive” of these liners is that for one, they don’t pull too much on the skin. Second, they are well pigmented.
Check out the first one I wore, Coco Loco, with Jordana EasyShine Glossy Lip Color in Sugar Cookie:
When I do use lip liner (I’m really not all that scared of it) I tend to color in a bit more than just the outside line, to blend it with the lip product and make it less noticeable as a liner. I also try not to take it too far outside my natural lip line, because that’s as obnoxious as the dark liner/light gloss combo. The two colors here were natural together, and I totally dig how defined my lips look.
Jordana says that EasyLiner for Lips offers all-day wear. This was untrue for me. This lip look lasted from 7:30/ 8 a.m. until I went to lunch between 11:30/noon. Both the gloss and the lip liner faded; the EasyShine gloss was practically all gone. I had varying shades of Coco Lococ lining my lips, and I needed a touch-up. On the positive, I didn’t look as scary as I feared I would. I wasn’t walking around with a ring around my lips.
Here’s another look I did, using lip liner in Tawny, and Jordana LipShine Glaze Brush-On Gloss in Mochaccino:
For this combo, I used the gloss first, and then filled out the outside of my lips with Tawny – it’s a much more subtle look for the liner and the liner kind of mixes with the gloss. The whole lip look wore off together through the morning I wore it.
Lip liner actually makes a lot of sense for me, because my upper lip is thin, and needs a little drawing out. At $1.99, these are a good way to fill out my pucker!
Oh, and just for kicks, and to warn you that you should NEVER wear your lip liner like this:
Horrific lips using EasyLiner for Lips in Cabernet, and Jordana LipShine Glaze Brush-On Gloss in Pina Colada.
Don’t even do this for Halloween, friends. Please. Think of the children.
