This lightweight liner is the secret to a great bold lip. Since high school I have sworn by MAC's Russian Red matte lipstick. It's smooth, creamy, highly pigmented, and the matte finish lends some serious staying power.
There are two nemeses to the perfect bold lip: 1) dry lips and 2) fine lines. No matter how well you line your lips or how young you are, color can settle into the fine lines around your lips and mouth. This invisible liner keeps color from settling into the lines around your lips and mouth.
It's an extremely soft crayon (don't press too hard!) and glides on with ease. I apply this product to the outside of my lips, line with a colored liner, and fill in with my lipstick and a lip brush. It keeps color in place and prevents smudges and bleeding well. I also use it to keep slippery glosses in their place.
The Make Up Forever Lip Line Perfector is $18 and is available at Sepora, in stores and online.
