Hope all of you are enjoying winters with festive events and holiday shopping. I am also enjoying pre-Christmas gift gestures from our friends and colleagues here. I am one lucky soul to enjoy these beauty & chocolate gifts with my gal because my hubby has no such interests. 😛 So today I will share one mini treat with you all from Sephora Collection which seems too good to ignore, especially for the price and its creamy-matte texture.
I am not a lip liner gal as I believe in last minute grooming. But recently one of my friends advised me to start using lip liners on regular basis to achieve more flawless finish. When I received this lip liner, I knew it was the time to try my hands on lip makeup. Moreover I immediately fell in love with this shade – Classic Pink. So let’s know more about it.

My Experience with Sephora Collection Classic Pink Lip Liner To Go Mini Lip Liner:
The mini lip liner comes in a sharpenable and color-coded pencil packaging. Overall it seems quite user friendly and travel friendly. The shade “classic pink” is classic in every sense with its bright pink hue which tends to appear purple pink at times. I find it perfect for my pale skin tone as it does not look or make me look washed out. It pairs well with all of my pink toned lip colors and glosses. The texture of this teeny beauty is absolutely impressive as it glides softly on my normal dry lips with no flakiness or feathering, just soft and smooth pigmentation.
It gives a creamy semi-matte finish on my lips which looks perfect on its own while it gives me medium coverage if used beneath any clear gloss or sheer pink lip color. Honestly this cute lip liner has changed my perception about skipping lip liners in regular makeup as I never thought a lip liner can transform our lips to perfection. I mean it so smartly conceals my minor lip flaws such as fine lines, pigmentations that I can easily wear any pale, clear or sheer lip product.
Moreover the Sephora lip liner does not sit on dry patches or my lip lines; it just goes on smoothly imparting soft yet bright pink creamy matte color which looks good on its own. When I use it beneath my creamy lipsticks, it helps me a lot with staying power as well as with bleeding issues. Yes gals, wearing this lip liner beneath creamy-matte lipsticks not only increases the wear time and intensity of the shade, but it helps a lot with feathering and bleeding issues. I see no creepy lines whatsoever. Even my lipsticks stay for longer no matter how many meals I take or how endlessly I talk. 😀 Even if my lip color fades, it does not look patchy or odd as the lip liner conceals all flaws.
However I do feel that despite this creamy formula, a good scrubbing & hydrating session is must for lips as it might not help with parched and dry lips. I mean it only works for normal dry lips, but it may look uneven and flaky on very dry lips. This also means that dry skinned beauties might need a lip balm beneath this shade as it does not provide any hydration, though it won’t dry out lips. I would definitely recommend this liner to everyone and personally I am planning to get all the possible shades of this budget friendly liner.
