Question: do you line your lips?

There was a time when I was a bigtime lipgloss girl.
At that time, lipstick - along with concealer - was the only item in my make-up bag that didn't get much love.

Over the past year and a half, two things changed my way: a. my boyfriend; b. blogging.
My boyfriend literally hates lipgloss. As he's one of those cuddly and loving man, he kisses me a lot and he can't stand the stickiness of lipglosses. I can sense that, when he tries to kiss me, but detects a gloss, he changes his route and reaches for my cheeks.
Blogging has also changed me, as I have discovered so many new lipsticks, those that do not feel drying on the lips, and so many wonderful shades to play with.

Now that I am a big lipstick lover, I discovered something about myself:
My teeth are not straight (there was a time when they were, but my ex dentist has ruined me, but that's another story), and that results in my lips being completely asymetric.
As I love me a red, plum, or black cherry lipstick, this is a big problem to me.
And this is how I turned to lip liners. Where have they been all of my life?
What was I thinking when I didn't use to line my lips?

Lining your lips does really help in getting the right shape, and also, it helps the lipstick last more.

What is your take on that?


  1. well, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.. I'm not a big fan of lip liner even when I wear a dark lipstick.. also because I like the not-too-defined effect on my lips (even if must admit lip liner are useful to make the lipsticks last more, as you said).

  2. Lipliners are one the best alternatives to lipstick as they're long lasting and they don't smudge ;)

  3. Hmm, I have pretty messed up teeth and it doesn't effect my lipshape at all.
    I prefer liner over lipstick as i somehow feel it is more hygenic. However, I rarely wear liner under lipsticks.
    I normally pair it with glosses that are more on the runny side.
