MAC Lip Liners Review

Over the past year, I have become so obsessed with lip liners and in particular MAC Lip Liners. MAC Lip Liners have always been a favourite of mine and I have been buying and using them for many years, over time I have built up quite the collection with almost every shade that they have in their range. I really started loving lip liners after seeing how much they can enhance your natural lips. I have large lips naturally, but with a little liner you can build up the edge of your lip line and give yourself much plumper and fuller lips.

Also, over the past couple of months thanks to little old Kylie Jenner, the MAC Lip Liners have just soared in popularity. She went on Snapchat and told her millions of followers the shades that she uses from MAC and now they are like gold dust to try and get your hands on. I love that a young woman can be so influential to wipe out a brand of some of their products, it really does show the power of social media, but on the other hand it annoys the hell out of me because I have used these shades for years and now I can’t get my hands on them!

If I am doing my makeup, I will without a shadow of a doubt wear a lip liner. If I am just doing my normal day to day business such as running to work and back I will wear something nice and neutral that matches my natural lip colouring, because it just enhances my lips rather than adds a colour. I will focus on evening out the shape of the lips and then I lightly blend them over the entire lips. Sometimes, I will go in with a lip gloss or a lipstick over the top, but more often than not, I will just wear my MAC Lip Liner.

One of the main things that I love about MAC Lip Liners is the vast colours that they have in their collection. Like I said earlier in this post, over the years I have built up quite a collection of these and that is because I used to work as a freelance makeup artist and I needed to have a vast collection so that I could suit my clients needs. I have countless nude and neutral shades, as well as bright colours that cover every single colour of the spectrum, which for a makeup up artist is just incredible!

One thing that I will say about the MAC Lip Liners is that they are pretty drying on the lips. If you fill in your entire lip with this, throughout the day they will go very dry. Because this is something to line to the lips and stop lipsticks from bleeding, they are thick products that don’t have any moisture to them. I know there are some other lip liners on the market now that are more hydrating and comfortable on the lips such as the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheats, but the MAC Lip Liners are very dry on the lips, but they are perfectly fine if you just use them to outline.

The benefit of these MAC Lip Pencils being quite drying on the lips is that they have incredible staying power. I can put this no my lips in the morning and I know that in the evening, they will look exactly the same and will not have budged in the slightest. This is why they were a favourite of mine when I was working as a freelance makeup artist and working with a lot of brides because their makeup had to last all day long. The way to get around the drying aspect of these lip liners is by going in with a hydrating lipstick or even a slick of lip balm over the top.

If you haven’t tried these out before, I would highly recommend them to anybody. They are amazing quality, so many shades to choose from and incredibly long lasting on the lips. I will leave a link to these down below in case you want to check them out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know if you have tried MAC Lip Liners and tell me what you thought about them or even if you haven’t tried them and you are thinking about treating yourself!
