Packaging: 9/10

These lip liners come in pencil form. You will need to sharpen them to reveal more product as you use them up.

Quality: 8.75/10

For being pencils, these lip liners are fairly smooth. The colors are all strong.

In Synch is a pale pink color, good for using as a base for other lipsticks. Naked is a very pale nude color best suited for muting out your lips. Boldly Bare is a reddish color that could be used under clear gloss to give your lips color.

Because they’re pencils, these liners are not moisturizing. You don’t want to wear them alone because they’ll dry up the lips and sit in the lines on your lips.

Ease of Use: 9/10

These are pencils, so they do tug a little on the skin when you’re applying. Otherwise, application is like with any other pencil liner.

Price: 7.75/10

You get 0.05 oz of product for $13.00. This is a lot of money to pay for that amount of lip liner, but you should also keep in mind that you don’t use a lot of product with each use.

Final Grade


Toss if: you have super dry lips
