Revlon ColorStay LipLiner

LipLiner is an absolute must have for me, I can very rarely wear lipstick without it. Recently, I placed a fairly big order on after hearing on the #bbloggers chat that it sold good quality make up brands at bargain prices (usually because the shade or packaging has been discontinued).  I threw in a few cheap lipliners for good measure and luckily one of the ones I chose was Revlon’s ColorStay in Wine.

I also picked up Jemma Kid Neutral Lip Liner and Rouge Couture in Bois De Rose all for around £1.99 each, but this one rose fair above the rest. Firstly, it’s an automatic lip-liner meaning that I never have to locate a sharpener, something that despite owning several never seems to be available when I need it. Secondly, the consistency and colouring of the product is so strong that they easily outlast any other lipliners I’ve tried.

I was so impressed that I ordered another of the discontinued bargain pens (Raisin) and then went out and bought a full price - £6.29 – current version (Pink).

You get about an inch and a half (oo-er) of product - 0.28g in real terms - which I’m not convinced is the greatest of value compared to a pencil liner, however, application is smooth and only needs one application so they probably have quite a good shelf life (oddly they don’t appear to have an actual shelf life printed on them).

The only downside to this product is that I can see how some people may find the darker shades slightly drying. Personally I favour matte lips and moisturise heavily before applying lip products instead of after so it blends with my lipstick no problem.

The current range of these lipliners, which consists of Nude, Pink, Rose and Red, are available in both Boots and Superdrug stores. The discontinued products are still available on fragrancedirect, or theres a couple of sellers floating around on eBay.
