I love bright lipsticks but I'm at that age now where I find they bleed into the fine lines around my mouth so I was thinking of investing in a clear lipliner. Are they worth it & any recommendations please?
YEEESSSS Urban Decay Ozone, totally worth it. I must have six of them, I try to keep one in my handbag, one in my makeup bag, one in my coat pocket etc.
I apply lipstick just short of the lip line first, then run the pencil around the edge of my lip, using it to spread the colour to the edge. It makes the edges nicely tidy and even without being either too sharp or too blurry, and it holds the colour without altering it or drying out my lips.
I'd avoid using it all over your lips, it can be drying and kind of deadens the texture of the lipstick. It does mean refreshing the colour now and again but once you have a nice tidy lip line it's easy to add a bit in the middle. I can do it without a mirror.
I also use a smidge of Ozone in the crease around my nose to keep my makeup from sliding off.
