Both of mine here are comfort matte. I also wish to point out the lipstick bullets, here photographed standing upside down. The top is flat so you can place them upside down without troubles important for me as I always store my lipsticks like this, so I can read the labels! And the labels also match the lipstick color, making it even easier to find the color you want. Unlike the previous lipstick line, the Vice are more traditionally lipstick shaped. Swatch time 2! This time taken in direct sunlight and with additional lip liners. Urban Decay offers their own matching lip liners for some lippies not sure if for all of them but when I ordered the lipsticks, the liners were sold out!

It wears well with or without lip liner, I use it either way depending on the look I want to achieve. The pretty much best thing about this lipstick is that it wears off so evenly! I can go out for dinner and not have to worry about looking weird. The comfort matte formula glides on effortlessly and does not feel drying at all. Both lipsticks only manage about three to four hours max on me. In comparison to other brands, these are less matte and dry than MAC mattes. The matte by Estee Lauder feel similar, but last longer. Sadly, it wears off visibly on the inside when eating and also sort of… rubs off a little.

So overall I think the colors are very pretty and I wear a lot, the dark one not so much. XD I want to try out the other finishes also, especially cream and mega matte. So you could call Nightmoth a brownish dark red or plum color. Nothing violet though. As always I apply the liner all over my lips first, make the outline work and then pat on the lipstick. Some liners can be worn completely on their own, but Nightmoth looks patchy alone. With lipstick though the colors look strong and the staying time is enhanced.

I can eat and drink and most of it stays on. As it is with such strong colors, a bit of touch ups in the middle is required, but I got about five hours of wear out of it and longer with touch ups. Sorry for the bad quality this was a spontaneous selfie, not a planned pic. Anyway, on the outline I wear only Nightmoth. I am a big fan of MAC lip liners and this one is no exception. I experience no feathering the uneven line is due to the bad pic quality no smearing.

Nightmoth is a must have for goth lyfe. MAC Flamingo Park includes lots of pretty pinks and corals, some of which are permanent or repromotes. My original post for the liners can be read here. Chick Trick is bright pink with yellow undertones. The mine is a bit less creamy than my other MAC lip liners, but workable. I apply it all over the lip, then it makes lipsticks last longer. An exact lipstick color match would be Miley Cyrus I , but that one was limited.

Other than that I mainly use Chick Trick to change the color of my lipstick: it pulls pink colors into coral and corally ones into pink. When paired with Morange it creates a lovely coral, when paired with Pink Pidgeon , that one looks less blueish. The MAC lipstick Silly matte , here shown on top, is a light pink with some white in. A post comparing the two can be found here. Swatch: Candy Yum Yum top , underneath Silly. Note that Flamingo Park includes another lipstick called Be Silly, that one is a different color but still pink, haha.

So be careful when ordering so you get the right color. Silly is a lovely pink. I wear it more often than Candy Yum Yum. Being matte, it does not need a lip liner, but when I use one, I like Rosy Rim , which softens the color a little. For a brighter look I would use the liner Candy Yum Yum , but then the color difference to the Candy Yum Yum lipstick gets even smaller it would still be a little less blue. It is a very pretty brownish burgundy color.

Swatch made in the shade. Apart from being a beautiful shade, what makes this lip liner so interesting? They match perfectly. So if anyone has been looking for a lip liner to Viva Glam I, this is it! I so love the color. I have been wearing this combo a lot more than I expected to, to be honest. While my preferred lip liners are the regular ones because I find them easier to sharpen , the Pro Longwear do last forever and they do not creep into fine lines or bleed out.

I am currently going for a Mo-Wed-Fri schedule, how do you like it? Should I keep it? Hello everybody! Heroine matte is a straight up purple, but maybe a tad less blue than it looks here.

It used to be LE, then it was added to the regular line. Then it was included in the Matte Lip Collection, but all lipsticks in that one are now permanent, too. Swatch of Heroine lipstick and underneath Heroine lip liner. They are not identical, to my surprise. The liner pulls more reddish. They are close enough for my taste. However, if you wish to get Heroine more blue-toned, you should get a liner with more blue in. Then I put on the purple Astor lip color butter , and the sheer Kiko lipstick. I still think Kiko has the same color as the Heroine lipstick, but as you can see, sheer and shiny.

I could also layer it on top of Heroine if I wanted to change the matte finish. The true beauty of Heroine , apart from the color, is the wear. Purple is farther from a natural lip color than a pink lippie. So when it wears off, it can look patchy. I get five hours of almost spotless wear time, including a meal. And then it wears off, and this is when the magic happens for me. When it wears off, it looks even better?

In a cyber punk sort of way? It wears off evenly for me win! What do you mean I wear a weird lipstick color? I was born this way! Took a while, but here are the makeup items I used the most in the two previous months. It looks innocent here, but it really ends up being mostly coral, not bronzy.

Guerlain magic. Fruit Cocktail is for orange and coral lips. Then I had a massive orange phase. Perfect for subtle definition of my naturally blonde lashes. Maybelline the Nudes : I succumbed and bought a nude palette. Review upcoming. But like any nude palette it is also very useful for a quick and subtle eye look, so I wore it to work pretty much every day.

Gives a lovely subtle golden shimmer, not sparkly at all. I had a bit of a lip liner craze this spring… these are the last two I bought a couple weeks ago. Usually I take the pics right after the purchase, then test things out and then I write about them. Swatches, I apologize for switching the order around. On top you see Fruit Cocktail, on bottom Chick Trick. In this swatch it looks a tad darker than it is. It is creamy and strongly pigmented. It helps creamy lipsticks to stay on better. It goes with pretty much every lipstick that has orange tones. Chick Trick is a yellow toned strong pink.

Chick Trick is the liner I use when I want something without any blue undertones. It goes perfectly with Viva Glam Miley Cyrus , although the color gets almost scarily intense that way. It can also be used with corals to pull them more pink. I have also used it with Morange, it ends up a lovely coral that way. MAC lip liners are so far my absolute favs because no matter how long I wear them they do not crawl into fine lines.

Generally I apply lip liner all over the lips. It helps me find the right outline and it helps the lipstick to stick on. Lip liners are drying though, so a base is important. They have recently expanded their range with new liners, including matching liners to Candy Yum Yum and Heroine , which I already showed you here. But I figured the liner would be a good investition regardless. Then I also picked up Rosy Rim , a soft nude-ish pink. I use it alone or with lipsticks of all sorts of colors.

Rosy Rim can calm down a crazy color like Morange or be paired with a nude. Since Rosy Rim has peachy undertones it goes best with lipsticks that also have a peachy side. Ruby Woo is a slightly blue-toned red. It has less blue tones than my other red liners; I bought it to pair it with the more neutral reds. So, sadly Liya is not a dupe for the Ruby Woo lipstick! Ruby Woo having more blue than Liya, which seems to be a true red. Left is Rosy Rim again, however the swatch above is much more true to color. The reds must have influenced the contrast. They do help the lipstick stay and I have found that application of a strong color is simply less messy if I color in with a liner first.

I always use liner on the whole lip. Honestly I could just take the whole lineup. Candy Yum Yum leans more into blue than Silly. Both are bright neon pinks. The MAC is Beauty seemed pretty okay in that regard, except right when I placed my order Silly seemed to have sold out. So I got Candy Yum Yum as consolation, except then both orders went through.

Faces Lip Pencil Auburn Review

XD So I am glad they are different enough. Candy Yum Yum is a permanent item now, in theory you can buy it anytime. Except it is a well liked color and frequently sold out. But they always get it in stock again, so no worries. So preparation is key. I have found the MAC lip primer works well with matte lipsticks. Freshly applied, both are very neon and sorta scary. The absolute beauty, I have found, lies in the wear.

I so love the two I have , creamy to apply and super long lasting. The two lip pencils are Candy Yum Yum and Heroine. These pencils and some others were added to the regular lineup a while ago, these are new, but not limited. Squiggly liner swatches. You can see the Chromagraphic is a lot creamier and goes on thicker. Perfect for the waterline. The darker liner is the purple Heroine, the lighter one is the pink Candy Yum Yum.

But I always find it easier to apply lipsticks when I did liner first; I have more control of the look. In comparison you can see how matte the others are, but you can also see the color is not that far off from Silly. First, the freebies. Although Alcohol is very far up in the list, which is not so good. Man, I love perfume minis. Reviews and pics will come later. I also ordered another Urban Decay eye primer, Sin. I love the Original so much and I like the current packaging so I ordered Sin before they replace the packaging.

Tube packaging with nozzle and no applicator. The new packaging will come with doe foot applicator again. And this is it, the great and slightly confused MAC haul. Product pics and swatches will be up with the reviews, hopefully tomorrow or the day after. Can't complain for almost 30 bucks it's pretty much a steal! By JeremyMichaels. By J, CAT. Thank u!


By Nima Lovely Variety Comes with a nice variety of colors. Very well made. I matched it up with my Kay Von D liquid lipsticks. It's enough color options in here to match with almost any color u already have or plan to get. Rolls on smoothly and beautifully. Quite surprised actually. By DeeDee. Based on the swatches on my hand, I'm in love. Highly pigmented, beautiful shades including black , and perfect for a matte lip look. Perfect for my kit, I'll definitely purchase a new set soon.

By Jasmyne Griffith. By L'Oreal Paris. I made a few mistakes at no fault I need to work on my own lip liner skills, however this stuff was wonderful! I made a few mistakes at no fault of the product as it was my first time applying lip liner. I applied it and covered with Lime Crime Red Velvet, which I have had a problem with feathering after extended wear, but not anymore with this wonderful lip liner!

I would say it went on extremely smoothly and was extremely soft. I have also hear that many people get chalky dry lips after using lip liner and I did not. It didn't soften my lips, but it didn't make them any more dry than they normally are. By Jadah. Make up artist recommended I saw a beauty tutorial where the make up artist recommended this brand and color because it goes so well with multiple colors- she was right!

I have 3 favorite lipstick colors and this nude color enables me to use liner to add definition and it blends well no matter what color lipstick I use. For some, that might be great, but for these older lips it looks awful. If you're interested in that coloring then the texture is great! It's buttery and moist! I gave it 3 stars because the quality is good and they gave me a refund with no hassle at all!!!! By Jen. By Proteove. Fabulous color selection! I loved these lip liners.

I used it as an all over color and layered gloss over the top. They look great with nothing over it all and actually lasted a few hours before I needed to reapply. I always end up looking like a raccoon so I prefer liquid. By blair edwards. Convention lip liner and eyeliner set! I'm not a make up expert so I'm looking for affordable lip liner that can be use for occasion event and saw this Proteove brand and decide to try. And amazingly for the price it works good! It came it many color so can be match with my lipstick PLUS each has a eyeliner and the sharpener in the other side so I can just bring on my bag to use whenever I need.

I said it's not a waterproof but in the other hand it's easily to clean with my micellar water. It doesn't give me a allergic reaction and it's not itch in my lips so it's great for me. By Dhii. Love it! This lip liner does the job! After reading the reviews on perhaps this color being too brown, I took a chance and purchased it anyway.

Lip liner goes on lighter and definitely makes lips look fuller and keeps lipstick in place. This color works well with mauves, rose and coral color lipsticks and softly defines your lips. By stelzee. I have looked for the perfect "nude" lip pencil for practically 2 years and I am thrilled I have found it. This color is nude but yet has a little color to it in brown. Most nude colors are too nude or lean toward a terracotta orange. This does not. It's really is the perfect one. It goes with every lip shade I've used it with and looks absolutely beautiful.

I will be stocking up on this one!!! By NGlass. Good pencil at a great price. Nice color and no bleeding. You can buy these at Walmart, but not always in the color that you want. Having it delivered to your door in the selected color is great. By Elizabeth. Addiction is the perfect shade. Even though I have extremely expensive taste in lipstick brands, this is still always my go to lip liner. It can even be worn alone with a lip gloss on top. It is matte, but doesn't make my lips crack or dry. I hope they keep this shade forever.

It is almost impossible to find at any drugstore or big box store where I live, because it is that popular! I am so glad to find it on Amazon and you know it has not been tampered with since it is sealed in its original clear plastic packaging. By BellaNV. Best neutral lip liner ever! This is a lip liner I usually buy in bulk. It's a nice neutral fleshy pink and it seems to blend well with different shades of pink to nude tone lip colors. It pretty much matches my natural lip color.

But this is my favorite lip liner of all time. I use it with almost every shade of lip color. There is no funky taste, and it doesn't look cakey. And if my lip color wears off while eating, I don't have to worry about having a drawn on lip outline left on my lips. I can go just a touch outside the lip line for a fuller appearance without looking clown-like.

The slanted tip can give a little more precision--but it's also prone to breaking off even when being careful to use a light hand in applying it. I'm in my 70's and my lips have lost some of their natural color Isn't getting old fun? This color does the trick, fooling the eye to think the lip is still defined in a natural way.

I fill in the line I've created with my lipcolor of choice, and my lips appear fuller, and much more youthful. By Compassionata. By goddess. Most Natural for Whom? I based my choice of color on the rave reviews I read here. I got the Most Natural, thinking the color would be as described, natural. It is actually a brownish-mauve color. I think this would work well for women of color, but I have a pale complexion, and I do not use brown lipstick. Besides that, I like the application and that it is in an "automatic" pencil which requires no sharpening.

I recently returned a lip liner from a popular TV shopping channel, also claiming to be "natural". It was also brownish, but much darker, like a light oxblood color. Why can't I find a good, medium pink to light fuschia color? I would recommend this to women who prefer medium to darker lipstick shades. By Vallen. My brows love these pencils! By Shanayah Renois.

I have an olive complexion thus prefer to wear dark brown lipstick oppose to red lipsticks so trying to find a true dark brown lip liner became a chore and a difficult task. Nonetheless, what I love about this lip liner is that it is soft enough to also use it as a lipstick if you prefer to do so. As stated before, I will continue to reorder this product for as long as it is available.

I highly recommend this product. By Yorima. Very soft, smudges way too easily, oily skin beware. It feels like more of a crayon style eyeliner, not a typical brow pencil.

The dark brown was much darker than expected; pretty much black actually. This is okay for me as I have darker spots in my hair that match the pencil, but if you have lighter hair I would not recommend the dark brown shade. By Kennedi Grace. By NYX. However, I agree with the other reviewer here that this is creamy enough to use as an all over lip color. Its a very opaque black. The tip arrives in a very fine point but the formula is so creamy, so it applies nicely as a lip liner. It is so creamy, you don't really need to use a smudge brush to get rid of any harsh lines before applying your lipstick.

Best Rated in Lip Liners

Was thrilled to find this here on Amazon. I usually buy Christian Dior when I can afford it but NYX is my go to, dime store brand, when I'm on a budget or I just want to fool around with trendy colors I won't use that often. Very black Black berry Endlessly i searched for black lipliner, for i find it is much better than lipstick. It does not smudge like lipstick does. And now i have found it. This is the best black lipliner i have ever found. Its so dark And bold, just as i like it. Its soft and not to dry.

And it does not have a funny taste like most black lipstick i have. I highly recommend this to any of the gothic subculture who long for black lips. By The Ginger Snapped. Love this product for the price Love this product for the price. I had a hard time finding black lip liner and was very happy when I found this. I used it for a masquerade party and only had to re-apply once after I had a few drinks.

I am totally sold on NYX brand cosmetics after this purchase and would be sure to order another lip liner like this in the future. By McKenna. By jane iredale. I had never had a lip liner pencil in the color NUDE before but the Amazon review were so positive and thought - why not give it a try? Well, I have been missing out!! Nude lip liner is the WAY to go! It lines your lips so naturally and any lipstick color you add to your lips looks so much better and contained with nude outlining your lips. I will be a repeat buyer to this Nude Lip liner again.

Read the reviews, including this one. I rarely write reviews but felt I had to write this one. By Deb Wood. Perfect Lip Pencil I absolutely love this lip pencil. It is smooth, easy to apply, pigmented and wears beautifully throughout the day. I bought this is the shade nude and it is an extremely versatile color.

You can use it with a wide variety of lip colors and it blends with almost anything. I have sensitive skin and this did not irritate me at all. I highly recommend this product and will definitely be purchasing more colors in the future.

Mac Lip Liners + Lip Swatches - Favorite Combos with Mac Lipsticks

By Stephanie. My favorite nude lip liner and I think I've bought and tried them all I really like Jane Iredale beauty products, especially her pressed powders which are superior to anything else I've tried. I've given her eye shadows and lipsticks a try as well and most of them are okay, but not exceptional. Well, this lip pencil is, and is simply the best true "nude" lip liner I've ever used and just ordered 3 of them to make sure I have one wherever I go. It's not just the texture which is great - it goes on smooth and it sharpens to an exceptional point and really helps prevent that upper lip "bleed" line that you can get when your lips age.

But to me what's best is the color itself. It's a great nude color with just that little bit of color that's not too pink or beige or brown. Instead it looks so natural and makes your lips look fuller and natural. By sb-lynn. Mac Lip Pencil Spice The color is in the brown family and for me it blends in with my regular lipstick. I use this product to outline lips and to prevent my lipstick from "running" into the few lines above my lips It does the trick!!

By Dolores C. It is very easy to match and goes with many of my lipsticks and glosses. It is a little scratchy when applying, but as you used it, that smooths out the further you get into the pencil. By Bryana A. If you like an orangey undertone If you like an orangey undertone, this color may work for you.

It was horrid on me and of course there was no return option. Drug stores let you return and makeup counters and consultants let you try before buying, so I highly recommend that. I mistakenly listened to the makeup artist in the video say this color works on just about everyone.

Not me. By Karen Avers. I purchased to replace Whirl and was not disappointed. This pencil sharpens well and lasts well. By Clairebell. Great color - loses chunks when sharpened. By Nancyjean in Charleston. Loved it! Loved it!! Added a warmth to my lips, created the perfect "your lip color only better" when combined with NYX B Only issue, both are a bit drying, so load up on the Zum lip balm first. By Lola Pantone.
