Happy Sunday Gals!!!. :)
Today i am going to talk about the water proof lip liner from BH cosmetics.
Price: Regular price $ 2.95. Sale price $ 1.92 (currently that is )
Available: on the official website HERE.
Product Description: Lips have never looked so sweet! Enjoy the flirty,yummy light pinks of cotton candy and bubblegum- all spun together in one fantastically fun lip crayon.
There are 9 shades available in the website and i am going to talk about the nude pinkish brown shade "Earth".
The packaging is like any other regular lip pencil but looks classy and expensive in itself. The colored band at one end definitely helps when you are looking for it in your stash.
The only thing in the packaging that i don't like is the plastic casing.It makes sharpening such a task.Not that you are going to sharpen it very often, as the crayon is not as creamy as i would want it to. :/ Being waterproof it actually is a bit hard and gives that plastic feel to the lips. 8|
Now coming to the color.it is a nude pinkish brown that'll go with most lip colors.You can use it alone too for that MLBB feel and top it up with lip gloss for that added shine.
As it claims, It actually is water proof and smudge proof.but that also has some of the obvious drawbacks.It is very drying alone.You have to have a lip balm under or a gloss on top.Also it sets very quickly.So you have to be fast enough to blend it properly on your lips if you are filling your lips with this, or it looks very streaky. :/ But on the other hand if you consider the staying power then it is awesome. Stays on and on unless you remove it with an oil based remover. (maybelline zindabad :P )
Now you can see how i scrapped my skin wanting to smudge it just after seconds of applying. So its a winner in terms of non-smudging claims. :b
Now let me just summarise the good and not so good points about this lip liner.
1.Long stay,non smudging, waterproof. all in one.
2.Shade will go with most lipsticks.
3.You can wear it as a nude lipstick on its own.
4.Sets very fast.
5.As it is not very creamy,'ll last a long time and also no frequent sharpening required.
6.The color indicator band is a good functional thing i like in all my pencils.Be it lip liner or eye liner.
1.Dries out my lips on its own.So lip balm is a must.
2.Gives a plastic feel on the lips if used without a balm.
3.The plastic case makes it difficult to sharpen smoothly.
4. Availability only through the website.
My Rating: 3.4 out of 5 ( points deducted only for dryness it causes)
Will i repurchase: Hmmm...don't know. Its not that easily available. I got this from a fellow blogger friend in the first place.
Recommendation: If your concern is that your lipsticks don't last long.then definitely this is for you. But for people with already dry lips....stay away will be my suggestion.
Hope it helped.
