It may not feel like spring weather will be here soon, especially those of us on the east coast. But with the spring season kicking off next week, I have to share one of my top favorite lip products. Lip products can be difficult to nail down, and often when you do find the right shade, the product has zero staying power.
This lip pencil is perfect for those of you who, like me, do not want to be reapplying something to their lips every 10 minutes. It’s Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner. This lip pencil in the 14C Light Rosewood shade is so pretty and perfect for spring. I have a fair complexion so I’m sure it looks darker on me than it would on most, but this is a shade that will compliment a lot of different skin tones.
This product on this pencil is soft, so it goes on really smooth. As you can see below, I start by filling in the line around my lips. Then I fill in my lips from that line. Before you apply lip liner, or any lip product really, it is important your lips are moisturized and have been exfoliated recently. This will allow the product to look its best on you and stay longer.
One thing that makes this product by Make Up For Ever stand out is its lip staying power, which is due to the waterproof formula. You can put this stuff on before dinner and drinks and still have it on your lips afterward. The product also allows you to build it up easily, if you are looking for a darker line around your lips. Of course, you can use this lip liner the traditional way (just lining your lip line, and filling it in with lipstick). However, I love the way this product looks when I use it to fill in my whole lip.
Do any of you use this technique? I’d love to hear if you have used this lip pencil and what your favorite lip product is.
