The ultimate lip liner & tutorial

Golden Rose Dream Lip Liner
Set 3
Ok, I'll be honest, I've never been enthusiastic about lip liners. In fact, I've never really understood their purpose. I have always been interested in them, but haven't taken the necessary steps to give them a try. So, I took a leap of faith, and did some experimenting. The verdict: Due to my insecurities, I have really been missing out all of these years! 

Lip liner is to lipstick, what frames are to paintings. When done correctly, they make your lips look more dramatic, fuller, and totally enhance their natural shape. Those chicks with the dark line around their lips... They're doing it all wrong...

If you've never experimented with lip liner, or want to learn the correct way to apply it, check out this TUTORIAL.

They key to the perfect pout, is quality products & a little know-how. Golden Rose; Dream Lips - Lip Liners are high quality, and come in the most beautiful colors. Plus, they're sold in sets with 5 colors, so you have a variety of shades to use. The colors are rich and luscious, and they go on flawlessly. If you're looking for a smooth, professional look, this is definitely the best lip liner to use. Paired with comparable shades of the Golden Rose; Matte Lipstick Crayon, these liners are a force to be reckoned with!

These lip liner pencils are creamy, unlike the usual hard pencils that are sold in mass retailers. This ensures that the colors blend well, and compliment each other. When using similar colors, there's just enough of a difference to make my lips look much fuller than they actually are. I love the look that these products create! It's like magic, but easier. Plus, they're long lasting! Compared to similar products, I've found that the Dream Lips- Lip Liners actually lasted twice as long. This was determined when I tested a leading department store brand, and compared results.
