My Experience with L.A. Girl Cabaret Lip Liner Pencil:

This lip liner comes in a sharpenable pencil form. It’s a color-coded pencil that’s sleek and lightweight. The lip liner pencil is black in colour and it has a black cap that closes tightly and ensures that it will not make your purse messy. Though sharpening the pencil repeatedly seems messy and leads to product wastage, I don’t really mind.

Packaging lip liner

Cabaret is a tomato red colored lip liner. The shade looks pretty when worn alone; as if you have worn a nice matte lipstick. The shade is pretty and it will flatter most of the Indian skin tones. This liner is smudge proof, but the texture is not so good because it feels so drying on the lips. You will have to apply a lip balm underneath, otherwise you will end up hurting your lips. It does not glide on to the lips easily.  I find Essence Ready for Red lip liner works better than this.


It tugs and pulls the lips badly; the formula feels drying. The color clings to the dry patches of the lips and looks tacky. The pigmentation of the lip liner is great. A single swipe is good enough to impart the full color on to the lips, too much layering is not required. The staying power of this lip liner is around 4-6 hours without having any meals (when used as a lip color).  Summing up, it’s not a good lip liner, I hate it’s drying texture 🙁
