My Take on Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Real Red:

This is my first ever lip product from Sephora. I walked into the newly opened Sephora store in Delhi last week and, of course, I headed straight for the lip section. The Sephora here doesn’t seem to house many of the brands that it does in its outlets abroad. Anyway, while looking through the lip section of the Sephora brand, I chanced upon this lip liner. I had been on the hunt of a true blue red lip liner to go with my MAC Red lipstick. However, I also wanted a red lip liner that I could wear as a creamy matte red lip colour by itself. Sephora’s Real Red Nano Lip Liner totally fits the bill.

The Nano Lip Liners are available in twenty beautiful colours. This particular lip liner is extremely soft and very pigmented. It is very easy to apply on the lips (it pretty much glides on) and stays put for a long, long time. It does not feather or bleed. It holds the lipstick in place, but it also works very well as a lip colour by itself. It is the ideal creamy matte bright blue red!

Although this lip pencil seems to be quite decently priced for a Sephora lip product, you must keep in mind the quantity offered. It is a ‘nano’ pencil, after all! The quantity is really not much (they seem to be half the size of a regular lip pencil), which is much less than what MAC lip pencils give you. As a quick comparison with MAC lip pencils, I would say that the Sephora lip pencil is a lot softer and creamier (I would say that this particular one is remarkably pigmented as well), but the staying power of this lip pencil is a little less than its MAC counterpart.

Pros of Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Real Red:

- Very smooth and very pigmented lip liner.

- Excellent staying power.

- Does not bleed, feather or transfer.

- Lines the lips perfectly and increases the staying power of the lipstick.

- Can be used as a bright, blue-based red lip colour in a creamy matte finish.

- Can be used to complement a wide range of red lipsticks.

Cons of Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Real Red:

- Since this is a ‘nano’ lip liner, the product size is not very large and hence, if used regularly, this won’t last you a very long time.

- In comparison with MAC lip pencils, the staying power of this particular lip pencil (perhaps owning to its creaminess) is a little less.

Verdict on Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Real Red:

Since I don’t wear bright red lipsticks all too frequently, I decided to give this lip liner a try despite its ‘nano’ size. As far as texture, pigmentation and staying power are concerned, I am quite satisfied with this product.

IMBB rating: 4.5/5.

I have become a lip liner addict. I feel they add so much to the lip shape as opposed to applying just lipstick. Loved the shade. I am checking out more of these shades at the store. Thanks for the review. :)
