Invisible Lip Liner

Upon receipt of this product I admit that I was at a slight loss of what to use it for.  After all, doesn’t invisible lip liner sort of defeat the whole purpose?  I habitually use liner as an all over matte lip color, and many of my lighter lipstick shades would wash me out if it weren’t for a slightly darker liner layered underneath.  Still, though, I gave it a try for a week and found that I actually had more use for invisible lip liner than I initially realized.  Enter: the liquified lipstick dilemma.

According to the Luv2Kiss brand, this Invisible Lip Liner promises to be,

A silky-smooth primer pencil that keeps lip color from feathering and bleeding, especially into the fine lines around the lipline. Keeps your lipstick application perfect. Apply MD Invisible Lip Liner to entire lip area to keep lip color in place, even when eating, drinking, kissing!

Well I haven’t tried kissing with it, but the anti-feathering claims hold true.  With OCC Lip Tar, Too Faced Melted, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, and various other liquid lip stains being released it’s undeniable that liquified lipsticks are on the rise.  These lipsticks with gloss applications are always highly pigmented and so easy to blend, but prior to using invisible lip liner I had the hardest time getting them to stay put.  The trick with the invisible lip liner is to line right outside of your lips, that is to say draw a barrier right outside of where you want the color to stop.

And just like that, I can finally put my liquified lipstick collection to proper use.  I drew a barrier around my lips with the invisible lip pencil then blended three shades of OCC Lip Tar with my NARS lip brush to achieve a high gloss, peachy color.

The only issue I found with the product was the cheap packaging.  This isn’t a product you could throw in your purse and bring around with you because the cap seems too large for the pencil and won’t snap on.  Spare this detail, it seems to be a useful addition to anyones beauty arsenal.

Have you had your eye on any liquified lipsticks?
