I have to admit, on a daily basis, I try to use as few products as possible. A light base, dusting of bronzer, a lick of shadow, some lip balm and mascara, and I’m good to go. But sometimes, when I’ve got a bit of time to kill, or I’m going somewhere a bit special, it’s so much fun to put a bit more effort in to achieve something more grown up and glamorous!
Whenever I’m putting that bit of effort it, one of the products I love to use is Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Liar. I’m obsessed with the shade, a rich rosy nude shade, which is just perfect when I’m after a my-lips-but-better shade. On the lips, Liar has a subtle blue undertone which is just perfect for keeping my teeth looking as white as possible, and it is such a pretty neutral to wear with a whole host of my nude toned lipsticks.
If you’re new to lip pencils, I would seriously recommend you start with one of Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencils. The formulas are an absolute dream to use! The colour payoff is incredible, and they apply smoothly and evenly. This makes lining my lips an absolute breeze, and since the formula is so buttery, I can easily blend out lines, giving a softness to the definition. The colour stays vibrant for 4-5 hours on me, even if I’ve been eating and drinking, and it never feels drying on my lips. Happily, the pencil tends to fade away alongside my lipstick, which means I’ve never been left with those awful 90’s-esque dark lines!
