Best. Lip Liner. EVER!: Tip-of-the-Day #259

Liner has been an important part of my life since I was first given permission to accent my lips in high school. Out of the gate I went bold and was known to fill in my entire lips with strong matte coverage. The effect? Devilish!

Over the years I got more and more comfortable with subtlety and found that I could achieve a far more sophisticated look with a liner complemented by a more neutral lipstick. I dabbled with Clinique, MAC, Bobbi Brown and Lancome (all expensive and not great when it came to feathering and bleeding).

I realized quickly that I hated having to sharpen my pencil to achieve a fine line with each use. And so, one day I went out on a limb and decided to try something I'd never tried before. A retractable, no sharpening required, all-day-wear liner that stays put - even after eating. Dying to know the maker? Drum roll....Jordana! You can find it at Walgreens, Duane Reade, Kmart, and Save Mart. And the best part is that you can get it for just $1.99! My fav colors are Coco Loco and Terra Kiss and I pair both with a nude lipstick by Revlon (which was recently discontinued - argh). Best $1.99 I've ever spent. And, if you're lazy you can order it online at Shipping is $5. Four liners, shipping and tax = sub $14. Treat yourself to your best lips ever.
