Hello lovelies!! I hope you have had a great week so far. It’s gotten so hot here in Georgia that I have had to cut out my runs outdoors, and find workouts to do inside in the air conditioning! The dog days of summer are upon us! The hot weather also means a change in makeup. Everything wants to run and smear. I want to share my review of the Make Up For Ever Lip Line Perfector, which will keep your lip products in line, no matter what the temperatures are! Even for those of you that are in the winter season!
Yep. It is a colorless, anti-feathering lip pencil.
I have had a love/hate relationship with lip liners. It was “de rigueur” back in the ’90s. If you bought a lipstick, you got a matching liner.
As trends came and went, I thought lip liner was left in the past, much like French manicures. But wait! People still get French manicures (why?). And still use lip liners.
Maybe I’ve gotten too lazy to line my lips? Or think to purchase a liner when I get a new lipstick? Let me defend myself by saying the liners in the ’90s were hard, dry, and harsh to apply. And way less forgiving than if you had just applied your lipstick directly to your lips. But we would have never done that back then!!!
So after the ’90s, I stopped using liners. And y’all know I love my dark/vampy/deep lipsticks. I never missed liner. But certain lip products bled, and I thought maybe I need to rethink lip liners.
So, when I discovered MUFE had a clear liner, I was totally on board to give it a try! Clear meant I could use it with every color without having to be matchy-matchy with a liner.
And boy, am I glad I did!
This is a miracle worker! You just line the outside of your lips (since it’s clear, you don’t have to be an artist to apply it “just so”). Whatever lip product you’re using, it will not cross the demarcation line of this baby. I have used this with all the lip products I’ve posted about in the past that had issues with bleeding. Problem solved.
This is not a wood pencil – it’s the plastic-y kind. I didn’t take a photo before I used it, and I tested it a lot for different products. Here’s how it looks all sharpened up.
If you don’t use darker lipsticks, you probably won’t need this. However, if you have more mature skin/lip lines, this will help keep your lipstick in place.
I am extremely happy with this purchase!
Do you use lip liners?
As always, thanks for reading! kxoxo
