My favourite drugstore lip liners

Hi ladies,

I haven't stayed in on a Friday for ages! It feels strange but I'm absolutely exhausted.
It's been a long and busy day...so what better than staying in, blog a little bit, watch something good on TV or Youtube cuddle the dog and then the husband when he decides to come home....that's my plan this evening anyway.

On to the subject of make up...
I'm not a massive lip stick person so let alone lip liner person.
However, I do own a few drugstore lip liners which I enjoy and like very much.

These are my favourites:

1-Kohl pencil in number 25 by Barry M (Orange red)
2-Vinyl Jelly Gloss lip liner in 004 Sorbet by Rimmel (Pinkish with a glossy finish)
3-Vinyl Jelly Gloss lip liner in 003 Starlet by Rimmel (Nude with a glossy finish) 
4-Lip lines in Almond by Collection 2000 (Matte tan colour)


Some swatches:

Swatches and the liners together:

How do I use them?


1-Kohl pencil in number 25 by Barry M (Orange red)
This is my go-to lip liner when doing a pin up look. I actually line my entire lip so I use it as a base. On occasions this is the only product I will use on my lips and it lasts hours and hours!


2-Vinyl Jelly Gloss lip liner in 004 Sorbet by Rimmel (Pinkish with a glossy finish) And 3-Vinyl Jelly Gloss lip liner in 003Starlet by Rimmel (Nude with a glossy finish) 
These are brilliant for when in a hurry. They honestly look like glossy lip stick once on.

4-Lip lines in Almond by Collection 2000 (Matte tan colour)
I use this one normally as a  lip liner and on occasions as a base when I need to tone down the pink on my lips especially when I'm using "nude" lipsticks like Darling by Gosh (think a very pale nude).

I don't think you need to spend a lot of money on expensive lip liners...there are fabulous ones out there for half the price. Go and visit your local drugstore..I'm sure you will find something that suits you.
