So, just how important is lip liner? Is it a must? Can it be skipped?

This can go either way. I don't always wear lip liner, you may wear lip liner daily, but does it really make a difference? I think so.

Lip liner is a good foundation for you lip color, and I'll give you a few reasons why.

  • It makes your lip color last longer.
  • It keeps your lip color from sliding and feathering.
  • If you have a lipstick that applies sheerly or unevenly, you can grab a lip liner in the same shade and even it out and make the color more opaque.
  • It's a lifesaver when working with bold colors. It really helps to even out your lip line and keep it smooth.
  • You can also use lip liner to slightly overdraw your lips, helping them to appear larger. This can also be done to even out your lips if the shape isn't even on both sides.

In addition to using lip liner with a lipstick, lip gloss or lipstain, you can wear it on its own. I do this pretty often. It's long wearing, matte and doesn't transfer. 

Some of my favorite lip liners are the Ulta Brand, Nyx Cosmetics and MAC. Don't rush to MAC though, the Nyx lip liners seem to be just as good. 

Here are the Nyx Lip liners I have, with swatches of course.

I'm definitely going to grab more of these! They're long lasting and very pigmented. They apply easily and I just really love them.
Also, they're super inexpensive and Nyx is almost always buy 1 get 1 50% off at Ulta.

I don't always wear lip liner. If I'm in a rush, I'll either only wear lip liner or I'll only wear lipstick. The only time I absolutely wear lip liner is if I'm wearing a bold color or need it to last a long time without touch ups.

Do you wear lip liner?

Thanks for reading!
