Hi everyone! Lipliners are one of those love-it-or-hate-it type of makeup products. You either love lipliner or you just never use it. I am in the first category. I love lip liners and MAC lip pencils are my all time favourite. I like to combine different liners and lipsticks to create more customized colours, use lipliners as a base to make my lipstick wear longer, and sometimes I wear liner on its own topped with a bit of lip balm. MAC liners don’t dry out my lips and come in the most beautiful selection of colours. In December, the MAC Canada website had a 25% off sale and I added three more MAC lip pencils to my collection that I thought I’d share with you.I ordered Beet, which had been on my wish list for a while, and Edge-to-Edge and Half-Red.
Beet is described as “vivid reddish-pink”, but I think its much more of a red than a pink. On me, its more of a cool-toned red that is on the berry or burgundy side of red. Beet totally lived up to my expectations. Edge-to-Edge is “midtone dirty blue pink” and its a very wearable neutral pink, the type of shade that works really well with a smokey dramatic eye look. My favourite out of the three and quickly becoming one of my favourite lipliners is Half-Red, which is described as “soft burgundy.” The description just doesn’t seem to match the name right? lol. To me its a brown-red with a hint of burgundy similar to my MAC lipstick favourites, Capricious and Spice it Up! I love it!
I’m really pleased with these lipliners and especially happy that I got them for 25% off. I am thinking of doing a post where I swatch all of my MAC lipliners.
Please feel free to weigh in and leave a comment: when it comes to lipliner do you love it or skip it? I’d love to hear from you. If you have a favourite lipliner I would also love to hear your recommendations 🙂
Thanks so much for reading!
