You know when you ignore an entire makeup item, suddenly have a moment of madness and try it, then utterly fall in love? Well that happened to me. For whatever reason lip liner just wasn't on my makeup radar at all, maybe I just thought it was a old school type of item that my only a lady in her 60's wears, and often too heavy, too dark and just too scary for my unadventurous side.
I did dabble with a Barry M liner for a bit, and I have no idea what happened next, but the next thing I knew I was sitting at the Chanel counter with new lips. And a hole in my purse. Thanks to the very talented makeup artist, I picked up the Chanel Le Crayon Levres, the Precision Lip Definer in 34 (£17.50)
Coming with a lip brush and sharpener, number 34 is beige, pinky-nude, and apparently their best seller (or a clever selling tactic to make me buy it). This is one of those liners for a subtle fuller lip look as its practically the colour of most lips, mine at least. It applies without dragging and feels considerably softer than the Barry M one I've been used to.
Even if you aren’t very talented with lip pencils (I’m not), this applies so evenly, and I would imagine it would be hard to go wrong with this. Admittedly you can't see the colour well in the photo, but then if you could see the lines I would be doing wrong, and Mrs Pamela Anderson would have to hang up her dodgy lip liner crown....
