My Experience with Make Up For Ever 10C Matte Raspberry Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil:
Comes in a standard pencil format with a cap that reflects the color of the lip liner. It does need sharpening which I am not a fan of as I feel that it leads to product wastage. The tip has never broken when I have sharpened it.
Texture & Application:
This lip liner is smooth and creamy, but it does not glide on my lips as smoothly as some of the other lip liners I have used in the past. It is easy to line my lips with this, but when it comes to filling them in, it tugs and drags; especially on dry parts. I have a very difficult time using this when my lips are dry, and exfoliation and moisturization hold utmost importance when using this product.
I find this line liner accentuated the dry patches on my lips, hence I cannot use it on its own. I usually wear this under a lipstick or a gloss and the hydrating nature of those seem to counteract the dryness this lip liner causes.
I love this shade, especially for the fall season. It is deep berry plum. It is very wearable and not too vampy and this color will suit all skin tones.
As per the claim, I did find this lip liner to be long wearing and waterproof. It does not transfer and only oil will break it down. You have to just be careful if you eating oily food, but other than that, this is an ‘apply and forget’ kind of a lip product. It also provides a nice base for lipsticks.
This is a good product, but it is not my favorite lip liner. I find this line of lip liners very drying even more than others I have tried. I prefer the formula of Too Faced Perfect Lips Lip Liner over this. The Too Faced ones feel creamier and have retractable pencil and cost a couple of bucks less, but the only con is that they do not come in a vast array of colors. I have no complaints about this color and this it is a must-have for fall and winter.
