Revlon Lip Liner Pencil in Plum Wine
Guest Review by Priya (Light Skin tone, dry to normal skin type)
- Clear and precise definition of lips.
- Soft, powder-smooth matte finish.
- Easy to blend with lip color.
I do not use lip pencils everyday but I do prefer to use it when I am going somewhere fancy it really helps in accentuating the lips and defining it properly. For me, with a bold lipstick like red it becomes even more important to use a lip liner or else it could easily bleed after few hours and make you look like a Dracula! I do own a few Bourjois Lip Liners & this is the first time I am using a Lip Liner from the brand Revlon.
Revlon Lip Liner Pencil in Plum Wine is a more of red shade with orange undertones than a plum color as described. It is a classic color which mostly teams up with almost all of my red lipsticks. (Mac Ruby Woo, Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet etc) The texture is slightly more smooth & creamy than Bourjois Lip Pencil but it does not mean you can skip the hydrating & exfoliating the lips part before the lip liner. It’s just that it glides on more easily & effortlessly than the other one. If not moisturized properly the lips can shed the flaky skin especially during winters. It is a long wearing lip liner and I get a wearing time of 8 – 9 hours easily. It does not transfer or feather at all. It keeps the lipstick in place throughout. The shade is pretty on its own and I prefer it without lipstick too sometimes and it look gorgeous. The pencil comes in a simple form and requires frequent sharpening thereby a lot of products ends up in waste.
- Fairly pigmented
- Works well with all red lipsticks
- Decently pigmented
- Gives matte finish & can be worn alone too
- Does not bleed & settle between fine lines
- Long lasting on lips
- Requires pre-moisturization especially in winters
Price: Rs 290/-
Recommendation: Having used both, Bourjois & Revlon lip pencils; I prefer Revlon lip liners more because of the extra creamier texture I get from it. Revlon Lip pencil in plum wine is another must have shade I would recommend if you are not a regular lip liner person. It works well with a lot of bold red lipsticks and is surely a must have!
