There are several types of lip liners out on the market, but it comes down to two basic types. The traditional pencil liner and the creamer based twist up liners. It is up to you or which one you prefer. I like both types of liner and alternate them depending on the current condition of my lips. My everyday use is the luxury lip liner by AVON. It's a traditional lip lining pencil that is inexpensive and I can usually catch it on sale for about $1.89. If my lips are irritated or dry, I go with the creamier liners like AVON's Glimmersticks lip liner. It goes on smooth and helps keep my lips moisturized longer. The Glimmersticks do run at a higher price of $7.00 but its still a deal compared to other major brands. I usually stock up when they go on sale every few campaigns as well. The great thing about AVON products is that they are affordable at their regular prices. However, AVON cycles their products every few campaigns for even better deals on their product lines. I rarely purchase anything from AVON at regular price unless its a limited item that is in high demand, especially during the Holiday shopping season.
Lip liner does have some great benefits. The color of lip liner should be slightly lighter than your lipstick or a neutral tone. I usually have at least three basic colors. A nuetral, a rose/burgandy and a red. Those cover about every color of lipstick and gloss that I have. I usually apply the lip liner after applying a lip balm. I let the lip balm set by doing the rest of my make-up and then return to complete my lips. I take a loose makeup brush and matte the lips with some Avon's Ideal Flawless powder. This will help as a base to hold the lip liner and the lipstick to your lips. I love to outline the entire lip and fill in the lips with the liner. It helps lipstick last longer as a foundation for your lips as well. Plus, you won't have that outline look if your lipstick wears off for whatever reason. I will complete the look with either a lip gloss or a lipstick. Of course that is AVON too! Why would I choose anything else when they have such great quality products at an affordable price?
