Do I Really Need to Use a Lip Liner?
You don't have to use a lip liner, but as someone that went almost 30 years without using one, I can tell you it's a total game-changer.
A lip liner will define and shape your lips to make them look fuller
Lip liners act as a primer to boost colour and the longevity of your lipstick
Liners help your lipstick adhere to your lips better without bleeding or feathering
You can fill out those hard to reach places like the corners of your mouth
I suggest also using a lip primer like M.A.C's Prep + Prime Lip to smooth and prep your lips
The hardest part for me has been choosing the right lip liner shade to match my lipstick colour. So I reached out to the team at M.A.C Cosmetics to get the perfect liner to match three of their bestselling shades.
M.A.C's Most Popular Lipstick Shades
Seven of our top 10 bestselling lipsticks at Adore Beauty are M.A.C lipsticks. Their Matte Lipstick is our #1 bestseller. Why? Matte lipstick is notorious for being uncomfortable, drying and cracking, even crumbling on lips. But M.A.C has created an uber-comfortable, matte formula with anti-feathering technology that gives you bold, lasting colour with a creamy, rich texture. And the best news about M.A.C lipsticks is that they recently had a price drop to $30.
1. Velvet Teddy Lipstick with Boldly Bare Lip Pencil
Velvet Teddy is definitely the most popular shade around Adore HQ. We recently asked everyone in our office what their holy grail lipstick was and 90% of Adore Beauty staffers chose Velvet Teddy. It's a deep-tone beige and a great neutral colour for any occasion. The lip liner we've used with this lipstick is Boldly Bare, which is a nude, rosey brown.
