Hello lovelies, I have to say I've never been that particularly fussed about lip liners. They never seem to match closely enough to the lip colour that I want to wear or they dry out leaving you with a different coloured ring around your lips, which is never going to be the look anyone's going for.
However, my opinion may have changed, thanks to the ModelCo. Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner, the name's a bit of a mouthful!
The texture of this lip liner is lovely, it's not comparable to the ones I've tried before. It just glides on, you don't want to feel like you're pulling at your lips, this is so soft and smooth. I've found previously that the vast majority of lip liners tend to bleed into whatever lip colour you're wearing, this stays put and actually looks natural.
The lip liner comes in one shade: a nude. You might think no way is a nude lip liner going to suit me, but ModelCo claim that one shade suits all. Most of us will have pink lips and regardless of the lip colour that we wear, it eventually wears off and our lips turn pink. Because this lip liner has such good staying power and pigmentation, the lip liner maintains its colour and means that lighter coral shades are easy to wear without turning pink.
Lip Enhancer Illusion is the perfect size to fit into any makeup bag and contains an inbuilt sharpener in the lid for convenience. To sharpen, all you do is leave the lip on and twist the pencil.
I think this could possibly become my holy grail of lip liners, the colour is perfect, the texture and staying power are great. It's an essential in any girl's holiday makeup bag.
ModelCo Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner is available from Boots for £14.00 or in the current August edition of Glamour magazine for the grand old sum of £2.00
