These are my favorites when it comes to affordable lip liners that last and could stand up to more high end brands. Also, the highest priced lippie on the list below is only $5!
1. Essence Lip Liners-
Smooth formula, lasts for a few hours and you can use it alone without lipstick/gloss. Cons: A little difficult to locate, only at Ulta and now Target- but the selection at Target is quite limited.
2. Jordana Easyliner Retractable Pencils -
No sharpener needed, smooth application, great color selection! I love 'Tawny' for the perfect nude lip that matches your lip color.
3. ColourPop Lippie Pencils -
Amazing formula and selection. Very smooth application and I love the color, Bound. Can be worn alone and they are not drying. Con: Can only purchase online but sign up and you'll receive $5 off!
4. NYX Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencils -
This is a classic favorite, I have purchased NYX for a very long time. They have the selection, quality and overall just amazing. You can wear these alone too but they are not as smooth as ColourPop. Still worth a try if you have never tried them or are just started out with cosmetics. They also have retractable pencils.
Have you tried them?
