With the exception of Mac, lip liners are not something I tend to splash out on. Finding a decent ‘drugstore’ lip liner that will stay all day, won’t make your lipstick bleed and has a good price point is often a challenge with the cheaper brands. I recently discovered these Ultimate Stay lip liners from cosmetics company Catrice. They hold such a special place in my make-up bag that I had to dedicate a post especially to them on my blog!
The lip liners come in ‘twistable’ form – something I’m not too fond of because of how little product you get compared to standard pencils. However, the colour pay-off and quality of these liners are so good that you really don’t need to use too much product anyway. I have nearly all the shades that are available – there are 9 shades in total. Ranging from nude to a vibrant pink or red there is a shade for everyone.
The liner glides on really easy even though the texture isn’t overly creamy. This is a good thing though because it means your liner is guaranteed to stay put all day without the need to re-apply. I would even wear the nude or mauve shades on their own, without the need for anything over the top for that super matte-lip look (just be sure to use a lip balm beforehand). They stay all day, even through eating and drinking and there is even a little sharpener on the end just in-case you need it for those ‘on-the-go’ touch ups! The lip liners retail for only €2.95 and you can get Catrice products from most good pharmacy’s nationwide. Let me know if you’ve tried these out and what you thought?
Lots of Love,
