One of my most favourite beauty items definitely has to be lipsticks. I haven't worn eye shadow in quite some time, so I always depend on my lipstick choice to really make a pop. I love how put together you look the minute you swipe some on! If I had my way, I would wear bright lipstick every day. Hot pinks, oranges, deep reds.. I don't discriminate! With that being said, one of the worst things about wearing bright lipsticks is that once it smudges, it smudges.
Imagine my excitement when Loose Button sent an email saying they were sending No Bleeding Lips' Secret Lip Liner to test out. They were also kind enough to include one for a reader, so stay tuned for the giveaway at the end of this post!
What this product is is a lip liner that is 'colourless, creating an invisible line around you lips. It stops lipstick and lip gloss bleed and feathering plus creates a sheer defined lip shape. It's waterproof and long-lasting (5 hours or more) so you can wear your lipstick and lip gloss with confidence.'
The packaging is slim and sleek, very similar to a pen-style liquid liner. One note of warning though: once you wind the lip liner up, you cannot wind it back down. I suggest twisting the liner slowly, because the amount it winds up is pretty minuscule, so before you may know it, it could be an inch long!
Another interesting is that unlike a regular lip liner, you actually line the outside of your lip. This means you can be as messy as you want and colour outside the lines without fear! Definitely a plus for those with shaky hands.
The lipstick that I'm wearing in these series of of photos is MAC's amplified lipstick in 'Coral Polyp,' which was a limited edition product from their Dame Edna collection. On the far left is just after application. The colour is a vibrant coral pink and glossy. The middle photo is after two hours in which I had a few snacks. You can see that while the colour is still vibrant, the gloss has definitely worn off. Despite drinking and blotting my mouth, the lipstick is still within the lines of my lips. So far so good! The right photo was taken at the end of the night after two (sauce-y!) meals. You can see that the colour has faded almost entirely off my top lip from constantly wiping and licking my lips, but no smudging!
Verdict? A definite winner! I'm a huge fan of red lipsticks, but I find myself constantly checking in a mirror to see if any of the pigment had wandered across my face. With this product in my arsenal, I no longer have to worry about that.
