I have used this lip liner for years. Even though the color is a little flat on its own, it works great under glosses and works with almost any lipstick. It is a great neutral for my very pigmented lips and flatters my PPP skin tone.
This unfortunately named but wonderfully priced liner is a nice surprise. It's not the same formula I remember from years ago - now, it's creamier, easier to use, and longer lasting. The brownish-brandy is perfect for under my plum and brown-toned lipsticks. An added plus is the length of this liner - it's longer than any other liner I own, and at a very, very small fraction of the price of my other liners - a mere dollar.
This makes me look like a vampire cadaver. Sign me up for an X-Files episode.
Everyone says this is supposed to be a YLBB shade, but not for me. It was way, way too brown. The only thing I can wear it with is nudish-brown lipcolour, which I don't have much of despite having a warm complexion (berries & wines work on me too and I like them better anyway). My lips can't handle this colour on its own (I use Rimmel's 1000 Kisses lipliner in Wild Clover, which people usually say is too pink for them).
Other than that, it did tug a little, but it wasn't painful, just a little more difficult than what I'm used to to get on. When I used it all over my lips, it was a somewhat frightening copper shade (in fact, I'd describe the liner as bronze/copper in colour), but as someone said below, it would definitely help darken too-light lipsticks. It has a lovely, rich shimmer to it, as well.
I said I wouldn't buy it again because it didn't do much for me. At the price, it's good to have for my one or two nude lipsticks, though.
I read a lot of articles raving about this certain color so I was very excited when I finally bought it. However, I was dissapointed to find that compared to the other lipliner colors that I've used from this brand, it definitely tugged at the lips. Also, the color is not as visible against my medium skin tone. It's more of a sparkly pinkish shade and not matte-like as I was expecting it would be.
I've worn this shade off and on for years. I've fallen in love all over again since trying it with my new HG lipstick (MAC "O"). Wow, they're perfect together!
After reading all the reviews for both #712 and #666, I decided to go with the #666 since I heard only great things about it. When I went to the store, the #712 looked more like a natural color for the lips while the #666 looked like a browner-than-your-lips color. I figured I didn't need another natural color since I have Natural from Jordana, plus the #666 is suppose to look lighter than what it seems.
Well, I have to say I am pleased with #666, but it's not my holy grail. It's more of a lipliner that you would use to darken up lipstick a tad. I put it on by itself and it came out a nice subtle shimmery brown (just the color it looks like). I then put on NYC's Sheer Red on top and it that darkened the red a little to make it a more glamorous night time shade.
By the way, I am a medium tan (in the winter), and tan (in the summer) Asian. I'm definitely a warm toned gal, BUT strangely enough, berry and wine colors look good on me as well. I would say 90% of pinks look bad on me.
For the price, it is hard to beat! The color is wonderful . Along with some others here, i did find that it went on rather rough and was hard.But all in all, a gereat deal *making a note to self to try the warmin it up trick.*
This is an amazing lipliner! I usually don't use lipliners as my lips are already pretty full and defined, and I hate matching shades. This color is Your Lips But Better, a shade that will flatter many lip shades and any color you want to wear. It goes under every lipstick, makes the lipstick last longer and enhances the color, and looks great under gloss (pigmented OR clear!) Sometimes I just wear this with balm for a nudey lip look, and I get compliments all the live long day.
This is all I've worn for years. I've tried more expensive lipliners off and on, just because, but keep going back to this. I couldn't find it for awhile, but then found it at Walgreens! Yay! I bought 3 just to make sure I always had one. It lasts a long time, looks great under all my lipsticks or alone with gloss over it. I guess I don't mind the texture, and I fill in my whole lip. The only thing is that I do have to sharpen every other day or so, but for $.99, who's complaining???
