5 amazing lipliners

Giving yourself the perfect pout with a lip defining liner pencil sounds like it should be an easy enough business. And yet, time and time again, we see our Mumsnetters bemoaning the lack of longevity in their lip liners.

I want one, that’s soft enough, so you don’t have to press really hard and also one that lasts...

I find the NYX ones really good. Go on well, don't bleed and last most of the day.

3. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner, £21

4. Urban Decay Lip Pencil, £16

Urban Decay Lip Liner

I quite like the Urban Decay colourless one (Ozone). i apply a rough smear of lipstick and work it around the edges of my mouth with the liner so it helps me get a nice slightly blurry edge, which I prefer to a sharp line.
