Hi guys! ♥

I know that this lip liners have been around for quite some time but I just discovered this and wanted to try for myself! I've heard that this is available in Ebay while I got mine in a local online shop for Php300.00 ($6.29) with 12 lip liners. But if you buy on Shoppee, some sells them for Php250.00.

Claims: Provides exceptional lip make-up results. Gives a steady stroke to develop neatly outlined lips. Waterproof, multi-vitamin and enriched with aloe vera.

The photo above is arranged according to their numbers which is no.46, and then 50 - 60 respectively. 

TOP: 46, 50, 51, 52
MIDDLE : 53, 54, 55, 56
BOTTOM: 57, 58, 59, 60

If you look and compare the first photo with my swatches, the colors on the cap, doesn't necessarily mean that it is what you will get on your lips. For example is number 55, the cap is a very deep maroon color and it comes on like a deep red color while some appear close to the color on the cap and swatch.

TOP: 46, 50, 51, 52
MIDDLE : 53, 54, 55, 56
BOTTOM: 57, 58, 59, 60

Faves: 50, 55, 58, 59 ♥

Here are swatches on my lips. I'm quite disappointed at some of the nude tones because I was expecting more from those color family, example is number 53 (farthest left in the middle) it definitely washes me out but I think I can pull off this shade if I have a heavy eye make-up with a nude lip gloss. 

Application is quite smooth if you don't have dry lips then there's no problem. I on the other hand have dry lips so I had some trouble with the application but the lip liners are quite creamy so my lips, thankfully, survived the swatches. lol.

Staying power is awesome, specially the bolder shades because some of them leaves a stain on your lips which is cool. It does transfer but minimal. I can say that the color stays on the lips for a good 3 to 5 hours and after that, you'll notice that the color fades starting from the inner part of your lips.

♥ Affordable! 12 shades for just Php300.00 ($6.29). I mean, come on, dazzaferdeble!
♥ Lasts longer than expected.
♥ Smooth application.
♥ Plenty of choices of colors that are wearable.

♦ Caps of the lip liner pencils are different from the actual color pay off.
♦ Not transfer proof


I highly recommend this guys better try this out, definitely worth the purchase! Have you tried this yet? What are your faves? Let me know in the comments!
