6 Life Changing Lip Liners

Do you wear lip liner? I don't know many who do but I have to with some lip formulas so the color doesn't seep into my lip lines. Don’t you hate that?

This post the other day got me thinking about one of the products I always keep at the ready. It's a clear lip liner. I can't believe I haven't covered this fully before as I discovered these quite a few years ago and I can't even remember the brand that introduced me!

What I like about them is that I don't have to match my lip color to it since they have no color. I really only use colored liner, it’s only for when I'm wearing a red as that shade is not as forgiving and you want a perfect outline of the lips when wearing it, like with any of these.


Since I'm using these colorless ones as a barrier against bleeding, instead of lining lips around the very edge of the lip, I'm lining where my lip line ends and skin starts, so just around the lips themselves. 

So what are these made of? Housed as a pencil, most are mainly a soft wax with some silicones/mineral oil for slip. 

Here are some I recommend that span the price points:

MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Clear ($7.99 @,

URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone ($20 @,

MAKE UP FOR EVER Lip Line Perfector ($20 @

SEPHORA COLLECTION Beauty Amplifier Universal Lip Liner ($12 @

ELF COSMETICS Lip Lock Pencil ($3 @

MIRABELLA Perfecting Lip Definer ($20 @

6 Favorite Red Lipsticks

Every woman should have at least 1 great red lipstick they turn to when they really want to turn it up. And right now is such a great time to find your perfect red as there are so many choices – tints, mattes, creams, liquids, metallics. So what’s your go-to?

Here are some of mine:

FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Unsensored - $24 @ – the newest one to be added to my heavily-trafficked reds. This is a long-wearing liquid lipstick. It does transfer so be wicked careful you don’t transfer it unknowingly, which is always my problem! It’s worth it for the shade and pigment this one

SEPHORA COLLECTION #Lipstories Lipstick in #26 All Washed Up, matte, $8 @ - this is one of their mattes from the new #Lipstories collection. I thought this would be a faint red but wow, was I wrong! The intensity is about 2 steps down from a liquid lipstick. Nice job SC!

MAYBELLINE Super Stay Matte Ink in #20 Pioneer - $7.99 @ - one of my favorite all-time liquid lipstick products! If you're going to wear red, it's got to be precise and stay on through eating and drinking and this one does!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in #403 Deep Red - $20 @ - another liquid lipstick that is bold in pigment. This one is more on the orange side of the red family. 

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red - $27 @, - this is a good red if you're not up for the time commitment of a liquid lipstick and it works as a two-in-one lip liner and lip color. 

RIMMEL Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Fire Starter - $5.49 @ - these liquid lipsticks from Rimmel are becoming a top pick from me. All the factors are covered - the color intensity, the way they wear, and the length of time I get out of them and of course, how comfortable they are. Big recommendation!

Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallic Lipsticks


Metallics are all the rage and why shouldn’t they be? Metallic colors are just plain cool looking! And fall seems to be the best season for them. MAYBELLINE just came out with Color Sensational Matte Metallic Lipsticks ($7.49 @, and while I’m not much of a blue lipstick wearer, theirs makes me want to rock it!


As much as I like the shades in this collection, they are just your basic lipsticks that don’t last a super long time like liquid lipsticks, however, they are comfortable to wear and don’t require the commitment. So there is a trade-off. Which do you prefer?


From L to R by number: 950 White Gold, 954 Pure Gold, 958 Copper Spark, 962 Hot Lava, 966 Copper Rose

From L to R by number: 970 Molten Bronze, 974 Silk Stone, 978 Smoked Silver, 982 Gunmetal, 986 Serpentine

One question regarding the numbers of these shades and all Maybelline lipstick shades – does the brand go in some kind of order and started at 1 and they are at almost 1,000 different shades of lipstick since their creation? Let me know if you have the answer!

Maybelline Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliners

just came out with the Metallics Collection and today I’m looking at the 7 shades of Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliners ($8.99 @,,

Fall is officially upon us so feel free to intensify your look or just add a bold shade. These waterproof liquid liners have a super pointy tip that’s not a bristled brush (yeah) so you will get a clear-cut line of color.

Inside each tube is a metal weight so you can mix the color inside if it’s been sitting for a few.


While some of the shades were bolder than the others, these for sure have a place on my face! And after drawing a line, don’t wait too long if you need to do some cleaning up because once it dries down, it won’t move. What I like about using a liner for this metallic trend is that it adds just a dash of flavor to your look without overdoing it. 

As far as wear-time, these are worth the price tag and then some. The colors are rich, even the light ones, and I got an average of 9 hours with the three different shades I tried. That’s a pretty good track record. I do have one question though, why no blue??


From L to R: Galactic Metal, Stellar Sand, Teal Galaxy, Violet Nova, Solar Gold, Black Comet, Cosmo Purple.

Is this the Best Drugstore Liquid Lipstick?

I’m in lippie heaven right now. Seriously! There have been a bunch of new releases to hit my desk in the past week plus some I bought that just came out so if you love lipsticks as much as I do, be sure to check back.


First up, MAYBELLINE SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ($9.49 @,, What It Is: SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick gives you a flawless matte finish in a range of super saturated shades.

My take: Wow, just wow. I think I may have found my favorite drugstore liquid lipstick! The colors are simply fab (favorites right now have to be the dark pink of Lover and the bright orange/red of Heroine) and I really like the vanilla-cupcake-scented formula. Here’s the breakdown - These dry down matte but not dessert dry. They have some tact to them but the color is totally non-transferable. I just got the new NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments the other day and immediately tried one and that one has a slight tact to them but these seem to have more, which I kind of like. The super dessert dry ones have become like nails down a chalkboard for me and I just can’t wear them anymore.

Is this the Strobing Product of the Summer?


Highlighters are the hottest products in makeup these days, which is funny since they've been around forever. Everyone just wants that glow so I can see why but you've seen one highlighter, you've seen them all, right? That's what I thought. Enter MAYBELLINE FaceStudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter ($9.99 @ It’s available in three shades: Light/Iridescent, Medium/Gold, Dark/Nude Glow, and these really caught me off guard.

I’m used to using a powder highlighter these days so it took me a beat to get used to using these that are creams. But wow, so worth it! I’ve pushed the powders aside and these three have taken center stage! I love the different options when it comes to the colors and These. Stay. Put! I don’t think they are waterproof but they are close enough.


A dab and blend on the tops of my cheeks, a dab and blend in my cupids bow, really anywhere and wow, do these perk up my parts, and probably the only ones you need to get you through summer ... seriously.
