A Lip Liner for Every Occasion

Lip liners are something which I have never been fussed about, however recently I have started to use them much more, and appreciate the advantages of using them. Although I still haven't mastered the skill of using a darker lip liner, and making a kind of ombre lip effect. I have three MAC Lipsticks, one for every occasion and although all very different, I get a lot of use from all of these.
Naked Liner | The lightest of the lot, perfect for any nude lip. Although very pale, it works amazingly as an all over base for any lipstick and really makes bright colours pop. Of course you can't use it for an ombre lip, as it really is very light and worn alone its almost concealer lips like, but it is a very useful colour to have seeing as it works with most shades of lipstick, almost like an invisible lip liner keeping your lipstick looking sharp, and preventing any feathering.

Soar | The perfect nude, and a very hyped about product. I love this for day to day, going with just about any pink toned nude although it can work with Velvet Teddy from MAC but I prefer to pair it with things like Whirl (although that does have its own matching lip liner). Very day to day and wearable, I also love wearing this alone.

Currant | By far the darkest shade I own, this works amazingly alone but I mainly use this to create an ombre effect, with a slightly lighter shade in the center of my lips and this lining the outside, being blended in slightly in the outer corners.

Although I probably need to add a red to my collection, MAC Cherry is what I have my eye on. I feel like I have most bases covered, although that doesn't mean I won't be adding more to my collection.



  1. I've wanted 'Naked Liner' for ages and now I am defo going to get it!xx

  2. My friend loves her 'Soar' lip liner to death and keeps raving about it so I've been eyeing it up for some time, but now that I've read your post, 'Naked' looks really intriguing to me as well!

  5. I've tried to resist the MAC 'Soar' hype, as it's such a popular shade that everyone seems to have, but that colour is just gorgeous and I think I may just have to cave in and buy it! I love 'Currant' too!
