MAKE UP FOR EVER Lip Line Perfector

I'm not a huge lip liner wearer, possibly because I'm just too lazy to be honest. I also don't have the right shade of lip liner to go with all of my favourite lipsticks, and that can get expensive. However, I've been trying out MAKE UP FOR EVER's Lip Line Perfector* ($23 CAD/0.04 oz), which is a clear lip liner that you can use with any lip stick shade! I absolutely love the idea behind this product, so read on to hear my full thoughts...

"What it is: A colorless lip liner that prevents lipstick from bleeding over the lip line.

What it does: Lip Line Perfector creates an invisible barrier that keeps lip color from feathering. Its creamy texture glides on effortlessly while its unique formula fills in fine lines and hydrates the skin. Perfect for all lipstick shades, Lip Line Perfector's long-lasting result ensures your favorite lip look will last all day and won't smudge." - Sephora

MAKE UP FOR EVER's Lip Line Perfector comes packaged in a black pencil that you sharpen. The product itself is a clear balm-like texture with no scent or taste. This formula is creamy, but I like that it isn't too soft, since then you'd have to constantly be sharpening this pencil. I've been applying this along my lip line to prevent my lipstick from travelling all over my face. You can also apply this pencil all over your lips to help the lip colour stay on longer, and to prevent feathering. I was a bit skeptical of this product, but I have to admit that it really does work! One of my biggest pet peeves is looking in a mirror and seeing lipstick outside of my lip line, and this product from MUFE is my new best friend! This clear lip liner makes me feel so much more confident while wearing vampy or red lipsticks, but I also love it for nudes and pinks as well. I find that this lip liner increases the wear time of my lipstick by about an hour. 

If you find yourself never reaching for dark lipstick because you're afraid that they'll travel off of your lips, you need to check out MAKE UP FOR EVER's Lip Line Perfector. As with all pencils, I would have preferred for this one to be in a retractable package, but that's my single complaint for this product. I'll put up with having to sharpen it, because it's just that good! Have you tried MAKE UP FOR EVER's Lip Line Perfector, or any other clear lip liners before? What are your best tips and tricks to getting your lipstick to last?
