Liners are still a new territory to me. I am yet to master the art of lining one’s lips like a pro. As a newbie lipstick user myself, I have discovered that a liner will make my lips look defined and keep my lipstick from bleeding and will help prolong it. Liners are a godsend gift and if mastered it can help you reshape and re-define your face and give you fuller lips people will be envious of (overdrawn and cheat the Kylie Jenner way). Liners are a new makeup staple of mine. Once a lip liner virgin now a convert thanks to these Rimmel bad boys lol. 

Here are some of the reasons why I am a fully-fledged convert
These liners are not only massively expensive, but they can measure up to big high-end brands. They have lots of shades to suit every skin tone and every lipstick one can think of.
I especially love the formula for the exaggerate lip liners; they tick all the right boxes. Glides on like a dream, soft, creamy and not very drying on the lips. One day I was in a rush, and I applied the exaggerate line without a lip primer and it stayed on for at least three hours, however, it was very drying on my lips; that was to be expected.
I find that they do set into fine lines or imperfection if you do not scrub your lips beforehand and apply a primer. So I will highly recommend you do not skip these steps before applying. The exaggerate liners are very easy to use,  they have a twist-up applicator whereas the Rimmel lasting liners have to be sharpened every time you want to use them which is a pain (but beauty comes at a price).
Both liners come in a variety of shades; I picked up one of each mentioned above except for Obsession, which is the best nude lipstick/lip pencil ever, I picked up two of these…fell in love with the shade so I had to get it. If you are trying to recreate the Kyle Jenner lip for darker skin tone similar to that of the lovely gorgeous, legend Naomi Campbell, then I would advise you to buy this shade. It is very affordable, and you can wear it with your favourite nude lipstick or a brick red lipstick like Wet N Wild’s Spiked With Rum lipstick (here)
Regardless of what shade(s) you decide to go for, these liners are truly a drugstore gem and oh boy oh boy are they gorge! What are you waiting for go ahead with your bad self, you know you want to and I’m sure you’ll need them.

Have you tried Rimmel’s Exaggerate or Lasting Finish Lip Liners yet? Which one(s) is your favourite shade?

Until we meet again,
