Bobbi Brown Art Stick - Bare, £22.50

WHY WE LOVE IT

We are in love with this multi tasking pencil!  Not only is it a lip liner and lip pencil, you can also use this on your cheeks as a blush.  It has a creamy texture and is non drying and the pigment lasts for hours.

“I’m not brilliant with a fine lip-liner pencil – I sometimes get the wobbles – but I can easily get to grips with this chunky version, which gives good definition and makes light work of filling in your lips. A lovely natural but not too natural shade of pink.”

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner Pencil, Pillow Talk, £17

WHY WE LOVE IT

This pencil comes with a fine tip which glides easily round the lips.  It has a creamy, pigmented texture which lasts well and doesn’t feel drying on your lips.  It’s neutral tone means that it can be used with a variety of lipstick colours.

“I finished my usual beauty pie one in Vanilla and bought this Charlotte Tilbury version. I’d been resisting it as thought it was a bit blingy and it was EVERYWHERE on social media but I gave in and I’m glad I did!  Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk – not too pink not too brown it’s really smooth and it goes on beautifully.”

Mac Lip Pencil - Cork, £15

WHY WE LOVE IT

We have always loved MAC for their vast array of colours in every product area and they haven’t diverged from this with their lip liners.  Not only is this lip liner smooth and creamy to apply, it is also highly pigmented and this particular colour is a great match for darker skin tones who are looking for a nude lip liner.

” Slightly darker than my lip colour but works well with nude and pink lipsticks on brown or darker skin tones”

Rimmel 1000 kisses lipliner - Tiramisu, £2.99

WHY WE LOVE IT

Although technically a budget buy, this lip liner does not feel cheap in the slightest.  A lovely creamy texture that applies smoothly and lasts well.  A rich darker nude colour that works well with olive and asian skin tones.

“For everyday wear this sits perfectly under my favourite lipstick (MAC Velvet Teddy) and is just the right blend of pink and brown for my skin tone.  And it’s so affordable!”

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Loner Pencile - Iconic Nude, £17

WHY WE LOVE IT

A super soft formula which is creamy in texture and highly pigmented.  Glides effortlessly around the lips.  It has brilliant staying power and is excellent to fill in the entire lip to give lipstick extra staying power.

“More of a natural lip colour liner erring on the side of pink rather than a classic nude.  There are definitely more ‘nude’ nude lip liners but this one gives depth if you fill it in with a paler pink: Bitch Perfect or Penelope Pink also from CT are nice with it.  It sharpens well too – I have found a few lip pencils that break/split on sharpening which is really frustrating. It’s probably worth investing in a CT sharpener or other decent make up brand sharpener if you don’t have one.”
