MAC lip liner pencils. Are they really worth it?
When I first started to use lipsticks I didn't see the point of using lip liners. I didn't really understand what their purpose was... until I used one.
Lip liners are used to enhance your natural shape of your lips - or exaggerate them if you want. I use my lip liner to enhance my cupids bow and to make my lips look even. I know that may sound strange, but my lips aren't that symmetrical so when I don't use a lip liner it can be quite obvious. Trying to make my lips look even without the use of a lip liner just makes the job difficult.
I rarely rare pale colours and I don't actual own any natural colours. I love bold and bright lipsticks and I use the lip liners to make those colours brighter and the liners almost act as if they are a primer for the lipsticks too.
The four MAC lip liners that I own are, from left to right: What A Blast!, Shock Value, Cherry and Magenta. Here are some of the lipsticks that I match them with.
