Babor is an international brand that has both a full skincare and makeup line. This review is for their lip liner pencil in shade 02 Nude Berry–a mix of brick and nude pink colors.
This is a double-ended pencil with a lip brush on one end and the lip liner on the other end. Each end comes with a slip-on cap.
This lip liner has medium creaminess to its formula. It doesn’t bring moisture to the lips but glides on decently, much like NYX’s and MAC’s standard lip pencils do. The pencil isn’t as creamy as MAC’s Cremestick Liners.
The lip pencil adheres very well to the lips and is smudge- and water-resistant.
The lip brush is very high quality. It is pointed to a fine tip and is also semi-stiff, which is great for precise application.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
Because the formula is a little dry, application takes a bit of blending and layering to get an even finish if you want color all over the lips. If you only want the liner for outlining the lips, application will be much quicker.
For $15.00 you get 1 gram of product. For comparison, MAC’s Lip Pencils cost $14.00 and contain 1.45 grams of product. Babor’s lip liner also comes with a fully-functioning, high-quality brush, which MAC’s does not have.
