Do you wear lipliner?

Well, do you?

(And not like Kim Mathers, I hope!)

nope. never..i have a ton of lipsticks and glosses and i keep buying but i realise i never use them.. i only use my lipcolors as an afterthought to my make-up routine. i am more of a face and eyes girl.

no, I have never used it. Maybe, because I actually don't know how to do it. :D The only thing i use is lip balm. I don't know the right way how to do make-up. :D You can only get smarter, by playing a smarter opponent..

We intend to loose our natural lip contour with age and other effect of nature. Therefore this is the reason a lip liner (as close as possible to your own lip pigment) should be used to define your lips, and then apply your lipstick. But don’t go above your natural line to create pout lips. The trick is to turn your head a bit to side, almost trying to see your own profile and take a close look to your lips... Even the pigment is missing you can still see your lips 3-d image. Liner should be sharpened freshly. Best thing is to start from the bow, find the middle and bring a line down, then from top of that line do the upper line of the bow, and peek shouldn’t be so sharp. When you come to the corner of your mouth make sure you fill it in with your liner. Blending is the key. Best liners for natural lips are: Laura Mercier- Chestnut, MAC- spice or Wet & Wild 666. Other reason using a liner (with reds and brighter colors) is , stopping your lipstick from bleeding out. Liners contain wax so it could stay in place. If you don’t want to look like you are a messy jell donut eater... So don’t skip this step.

Yes I do. Another reason why I don't like to wear lipgloss, because it eats away my lipstick and then I'm left with a visible line. Hates that! _________________________ We are shaped and fashioned by what we love. - Goethe

I don't wear it to line my lips but I use it. I use chapstick, then use my favorite lip liner to fill in and color my lips. *Thank you. My real name... is plain... Jane Jones. (Alice - Closer)

no, i feel like it makes me look a bit old fashioned! I recently recived MAC lipliner in Spice as a present though so I may try it as it's supposed to be one of the best nude ones!

Once in a blue moon. There's this lip liner I have and I love the color. I lightly fill in my lips with it and put lip balm so it turns into lipstick. But I don't use it to outline my lips. I remember back in high school, the fad was the black lip liner (like Kim Mathers) and I use to do that :OOPS: God I'm so embarrassed.

I only have one lipliner (Prestige Lip Liner in Darling), sadly. Though it's not part of my "everyday-wear", it matches my Bloom lip color in Tint (a nude color which I really love) so I can never forget that a single lip liner exists in my make-up bag! haha :p

No, not usually.

I wear it occasionally but I stick to Wet and Wild #666. It's fleshy colored but I put it on all over so I don't have "lines". That girl looks nasty!

No I usually don't wear lip liner. I remember being told that if you wear lip liner it cause your natural lip line to fade, so i have stayed away from it. Don't know if it is true, but better safe than sorry. LOL

Nope, I don't wear eye liner either.

i do line my lips but with a thick lip pencil in a color i really love for my lips. then i run my chapstick over it and blend it all in so my lips are the color of my lip pencil. when i am done there is no longer a lip line.

I think that lipliner, in a shade that's just a TINY bit darker than the lipstick, can look nice and help give lips definition - but the two shades really need to be fairly close so that you don't have a visible line of dark around the mouth. Stuff like the girl in the picture above, ugh! I just don't understand why some people find that attractive. I mean, obviously some do, or they wouldn't wear it - and if they're comfortable with it, more power to them, but I just don't get it at all...

That picture kills me. I remember seeing that for the first time- yikes! I wear it sometimes, just the same color as my lips with balm over.

My lips are so weird and uneven lipliner looks horrible. Even though I am lining my actual lips, it looks like a 5 year-old put it on. I just stick to gloss. It masks the uneven-ness of my lips so they don't look so weird. With Love, MaRy!

I've been using Cargo's Reverse Lip Liner! But that's the closest I've ever come to wearing it.

I wear it about 5 times a year. My problem with any lip product is that it stays on for an hour max and I don't have the time to reapply constantly. So, mostly, my lips are bare.

I use lip liner every once in a while. But I put it on after I've put on my gloss. I lightly line the cupid's bow and bottom lip to perfect the over all shape and blend the color. You can't even tell it's liner. I don't draw "outside the line", which looks so sad unless everyone who meet stays 5 feet away from you and "can't tell" that it's not your real lip line. I also do not understand the dark liner - light gloss thing. Do people really think this is attractive?

I don't even own a lipliner... I think my lips are plump & well-defined enough that I can go without, and as I grew up in the 90s, I have lived in perpetual fear of lipliner thanks to such beauty role models as Kim Mathers or the Spice Girls (version 1.0). It's just too scary to contemplate.

:rotfl: @ red being a glittery pocahontas! I do wear lipliner, but I'm like Whip - it's basically the same color as my lips. I usually wear some type of gloss, and if I don't have the liner, it bleeds.

no, because it always looks very obvious on me when i do it. the eperts do it and it looks great. i do it and it looks clown like.

I wear it but only if it almost the same color as my lips, I actually use a liner for all over color because it lasts longer and then I put gloss over it. But it is very subtle.

I never wear it. I think of it as an extra step, and I usually avoid those.
