Hope you all are enjoying the first days of the year. My year started on a low note, but I am hopeful that things will definitely turn out to be fine. Today, I will be reviewing a lovely lip liner from L’Oreal. Read on to know more about the product.
L’Oreal #652 comes in a wooden pencil form. The body is the same color as that of the liner. It is a sharpenable pencil with a muted golden cap. The cap does not shut with a click, but it never loses the cap, hence it is travel friendly. I have traveled with this in my makeup pouch and it never opened up to cause any trouble.
This pencil is neither too creamy nor too hard which ensures that it does its job well. The texture lets the pencil stay in place. There is no scope of lip glosses bleeding with this as base. The only problem with this is that it cannot be worn alone; a lip balm or clear lip gloss is must as it will make the lips dry. I really do not mind that because lip liners cannot be as creamy as the lipsticks; overall quite impressed with the texture and the pigmentation it provides with its texture.
My Experience with L’Oreal Contour Parfait Lip Liner – 652 Toffee:
I have an absolute love for nude lip colors and I am always hunting for such shades. I have been using it for a while, but I have no idea why I missed reviewing this beauty. This is a wooden pencil which has to be sharpened, but not before every use. On sharpening the pencil, it gets a very pointed tip which is excellent to draw the arches of the lips. It is very well pigmented but being wooden, it does not exactly glide on the lips, but being slightly dry, it stays on for long and keeps lipsticks and lip glosses in place.
The lip liner cannot be worn on its own, it makes the lips too dry. With a clear balm on it is as good as a creamy lipstick and stays on for quite a long time. I have paired it with so many shades and for the versatile nature of the color, it is a must have. Though it might seem a little expensive for a lip liner, but it serves the purpose of both a liner and a lipstick. Quite impressed with the shade and will have to repurchase very soon.
Pros of L’Oreal Contour Parfait Lip Liner – 652 Toffee:
- Stays on for very long time.
- Right texture, not too dry not too creamy.
- Goes well with so many shades of lipstick.
Cons of L’Oreal Contour Parfait Lip Liner – 652 Toffee:
- Expensive for a lip liner.
