Over the last few months I seem to have gone crazy for lip liners. I’ve gone from only ever using my beloved No7 Plum lip liner to heading straight to the lip liner display every time I approach a makeup counter!

I love wearing it alone over my Nuxe lip balm for that natural matte lip look.

I tend to gravitate towards the more nude shades which allow me to slightly over line my lips without looking like a clown. I haven’t quite mastered that skill yet… I’ll move on to more adventurous colours once I have.



I have been loving my MAC lip liners. I have ‘Dervish’, ‘Hover’ and the oh so sought after ‘Soar’ and ‘Whirl’ (thanks for that Kylie Jenner…).


DSC00407‘Dervish’ is a pinky mauve shade with a slight shimmer running through it. It’s a colour that works with all looks as it’s so natural. It’s a good one to have in the collection for those days when you don’t want to think about what lip colour to wear.

‘Whirl’ is described as a ‘dirty rose’ shade. I would say that it’s a deep pink plum colour, with a brown undertone. This is a great colour to over line your lips with.

‘Hover’ is a rich caramel brown shade. It’s definitely the darkest of the shades that I own, perfect for that ’90s lip look. It looks great paired with ‘Modesty’ lipstick.

‘Soar’ is a mid-tone pinkish brown shade. I’ve got to say that this is by far my favourite shade. It’s similar to my natural lip colour and therefore perfect for that ‘your lips but better’ look. Apparently this is the shade that Kylie Jenner uses to create those infamously big lips. This means that this shade is hard to come by so if you find it, buy it! I have two extras just so that I don’t run out!

What lip liners do you like?
