Hi lovely ladies!!!
Lip liners – this is one product in India where we have a very limited color range available. So my hunt for a good and affordable lip liner is always going on. Apart from Colorbar and Mac, I did not find any other brand that has bright, peppy colored lip liners. On one of my visit to the Diana of London counter at the store, the SA showed me this lip liner when I asked her to show me any orange colored lip product. Initially, I was skeptical to get this product because through its packaging it didn’t look like an orange colored lip product what I had asked for, but once I tried it on my lips – I was sold. So today I will be reviewing this gorgeous lip liner that I came across just by chance- Diana Of London Absolute Moisture lip liner in the shade Warm Orchid.

My Experience with Diana of London Warm Orchid Absolute Moisture Lip Liner :
Diana of London Absolute Moisture lip liner comes in a slim color coded wooden pencil form with a transparent cap to it. The color coded outer body of the pencil allows easy identification of the shade in your makeup stash. The ingredients and shade name is mentioned on the pencil itself. The wooden pencil is easy to sharp but no additional sharpener is provided with it.
Warm orchid is a gorgeous orange lip pencil with a reddish undertone to it with absolute no shimmer in it. Indoors under the tube light the shade looks more warm and rusty-reddish which might lead to some confusion when you try the color in the store. It is a lovely shade that will suit all skin toned beauties.
It is a lovely lip color to be worn by itself or can provide as a great base for other lipsticks. I personally like to wear it alone or top it up with a pink lipstick. I know you have to top up lipsticks belonging to the same color family of the liner but trust me- a pink lipstick over this lip liner gives an awesome coral color that lasts really long.
The texture of this liner is superb; smooth and creamy that glides easily on the lips. If you are someone like me who hated lip liners thinking they are hard and pull and tug on the lips, then you might be happy to know that this lip liner doesn’t do that. It is the creamiest lip liner I have ever come across. However a thin coat of lip balm makes the lip liner glide even more effortlessly. It gives a matte finish to the lips but doesn’t make them look parched by drying them out. As this liner gives a matte outcome- you need to prep your lips well, otherwise it can emphasize dry flaky areas of the lips.
This is a highly pigmented lip liner. One swipe delivers opaque color to the lips. You can actually wear this lip liner on your entire lips like a lipstick as it delivers rich color like how a lipstick does. The excellent color pay off provides full coverage for pigmented lips.
Warm orchid lip liner lasts for a good 6-7 hours on the lips and even survives meals. It fades gradually leaving a stain behind that lasts even longer. The color settles into the fine lines of the lips through the course of the day if it is applied directly on the lips. But with a bit of lip balm underneath the lip liner you can avoid this. If worn as a base under lipsticks then this lip liner extends the life of the lip color and makes the color look more alive.
