This is a great product and a great idea!
The lip line fixer was recommended to me by a friend and we ended up buying the product together and we have both loved using it.
I vary what lipsticks I use depending on what I wear and I can't afford to buy the matching lip liner to every lipstick I own so this has worked out perfectly for me.
The liner itself is VERY waxy to hold your lipstick in place and even though it is meant to be translucent, it can be a bit whitening so when I apply it I do all my other make-up bar lipstick. Then I rub in lip conditioner and heavily line my lips until there is enough wax to stop my lipstick from bleeding everywhere. I pat the foundation I am already wearing over the liner just to take off the whitening effect, but the liner is still serving its purpose, then finish off with the lipstick off your choice! Keep in your bag for touch-ups later in the day and it's only £8 or something...
This is a great product. It's a colourless waxy lip liner that is completely invisible on the skin, but really does define your lip line and prevent smudges and bleeding. I've only tried it with neutrals so far, but I really like the subtle definition is gives, rather than the harder line of a coloured lip line. Will definitely repurchase!
I am impressed by this product. It does the job, great as Im not normally a lippy girl so when I do use a lipstick it stays in place. pleased I purchased this.
This is a good solution to trying to match multiple lipliners for different lip colours - a clear, waxy pencil that can be used for every colour. I also use this with my tinted lipbalms and the better defined edges makes for a more polished finished look. Because it's clear, I don't need to worry about mistakes, and even if I draw a dodgy line, it's easily removed without leaving stains.
I prefer TBS's version of clear/reverse lipliners to others because it's cheaper and it's retractable so there's no wastage with sharpening. But I wish the tip was thicker as I'd feel better knowing there was a big enough line keeping my gloss/lipstick in place.
I am not over the top in love with this product, still it gets a 4. The reason is twofold. First of all it does everything it is supposed to do. It lines the lips invisibly, creating nice, sharp lines and keeping the lipstick in place. Secondly, it is one of those staples you cannot afford to be without even if it is not a "I love this!" product. You know the ones, always looking for a nicer (and frankly cheaper) alternative but you keep returning to it over and over again since nothing else really works as well. And that, in my opinion, is a good product.
I bought this on Paula Begoun's reccomendation, and I've been really pleased. I line outside my lip line, and do find that lipstick or gloss stays where it's supposed to. My general lip routine is a light application of Carmex clickstick, blot after a minute or two, apply this product, then lipstick or gloss. Works for me!
Wow! Every girl should have this in her make up bag. It does really what it says it does: it prevends your lips from bleeding. The good thing about is that is clear and that it is so gentle to use (other lipliners tend to scratch my lips). I love the fact that is so tiny and that you can screw the lipliner it in and out!!! I use this product everyday. Price is nice too! You should get it :)
Oh my dog-I am in love with this stuff.I love it more than puppies.I love it more than MAC prep + prime lip.My lipstick stays on! It doesn't bleed!I have found the answer to my lipstick woes-for now.I find tracing the outside of the lip line and filling in with color over it works best,and makes the lip color go on very smoothly and STAYS there.
A great find :)
This is a makeup bag staple, a colorless lip liner that really does what it's supposed to - keeps your lipstick on your lips (and not your chin) and your lipgloss from sliding off in unwanted directions. If only... it didn't smell toxic. Despite this minor shortcoming, I'm never going to need a lipliner again. Excellent product, I don't leave home without it, and will repurchase.
