As it’s the month of love and we’re celebrating this universal language in all its forms, we want all of you Glossies to feel extra special in February. That’s why we’ll be treating you to not one but two creamy lip pencils by Saint Luxe!

Your Lip Liner Duo

Yes, you did read that right! This month, you’ll receive not one but two lip liners. Both boast creamy and waterproof formulas that are very buildable.

My favourite thing about these lip liners is the intensity of their shades.

If you apply them lightly, each one offers a subtle hue. If you want to go all out though, you can build up some serious colour by applying more layers.

Two Gorgeous Shades For Every Mood

  • A Delicate Pink

Let’s face it, every woman should have a pink lip liner in her makeup bag collection. Perfect for a casual day look, it adds a soft, blush colour to your pout that gives your face a healthy lift.  Alternatively, you can use it to perfectly compliment a smokey eye. Think of it as the delicate finishing touch that brings your whole makeup look together.

  • A Sassy Red

You’ll also receive a red lip liner in a sassy, bright hue that is to die for! If you want to flaunt it during the day, I’d recommend pairing it with a soft eye look (stick to nude eyeshadows, a subtly smoked-out upper lash line and a few coats of mascara). Of course, the best way to wear a red is alongside a bold winged eye and a touch of blush.

How To Apply Lip Liner

If you haven't applied lip liner before, here's how you should apply it.

  1. Draw a cross at the top of your Cupid’s bow.
  2. Apply your pencil along your top lip, working from the outer corner towards the centre.
  3. Draw along your bottom lip, working from the centre towards the outer corners.

Insider Tip: As it has such a soft texture, I like using this lip liner as a lipstick too. I start by lining my lips, then fill in my lips using the same pencil.

A Few Tips When Applying Lip Liner

  • Keep Your Lips Relaxed

When applying lip liner, it can be tempting to hold your lips taut as it makes it easier to see your natural lip line. However, this often creates a tight and unnatural line, which, in turn, makes your lips look unnatural too. Instead, keep your lips relaxed and open your mouth slightly as you draw along your lip line.

  • Use A Sharp Pencil

It’s a lot easier to be precise when you’re using a well-sharpened pencil. Trust me, the finish will be a lot cleaner. Plus, you don’t want to risk hurting your lips or scratching your skin by applying a pencil that has gone stubby. It’s just good practice!
