A few days ago I showed you guys what came inside my LF Beauty Box of October. One of those products was this Laura Geller Pout Perfection Waterproof Lip Liner. I’ve never really been that into lip liner, but when I saw this little one I did get quite excited about it. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out more about this product, make sure you continue reading!
The design of the pencil is pretty basic. It’s entirely black, has some white text on it and the bottom part has the same colour as the pencil itself so you can identify which colour you’re dealing with without having to open up the product. I do really like the packaging. Mainly because it’s so simple but also because of the little lips in the middle. I just think that looks adorable.
This lip liner comes in many shades. Since I got it in my beauty box I actually didn’t really have a choice, but luckily for me I received the prettiest one out of the three options.
The colour I got is called Cabernet. Cabernet is a dusty pink colour. It’s not super nude but it’s wearable. It’s one of those colours you could wear to any occasion without looking either too flashy or too boring. I really like it. I also really like the name of it. I don’t really know what it means but it feels like the perfect name for a colour like this.
Enough about the colour, onto the quality of the product. The first thing about this pencil that caught my attention was the fact that it claims to be waterproof. Nowadays quite a lot of products claim to be waterproof, but I’m never really sure whether or not I should believe that. Generally I just don’t.
This pencil is, as I expected, not fully waterproof. Yes it’s definitely long lasting and it’s not a product that requires you to worry about smearing onto everything your lips touch, but it’s not waterproof. If you kiss somebody while wearing it, it won’t leave a mark. However, when you rub your lips it will fade pretty easily. Especially when it’s wet. In my opinion this doesn’t mean that this lip pencil is a bad product, I do really like it actually, but it’s just not waterproof.
Pigmentation wise this is a great, great product. It has lots of colour pay off, it’s easy to apply, you don’t have to work too hard in order to get the product onto your lips and its intensity is buildable. It’s also very longlasting and has a semi-matte finish. It does have some shine to it, which I like because it makes it look more natural, but it’s not a product I’d call shiny.
Because it’s a pencil and not a lip crayon or lipstick or whatever it is rather dry. However it’s not as dry as I expected. My MAC Ruby Woo Retro Matte lipstick is way drier and basically unbearable. This one is dry but it won’t make you feel like your lips are going to crack open and fall off.
Overall I think this Laura Geller Pout Perfection Waterproof Lip Liner is quite a great product. The colour is stunning, it has lots of colour pay off, it’s not too dry and it stays in place for a long time. Okay it’s not waterproof, but aside from that it’s basically the perfect lip pencil!
The Laura Geller Pout Perfection Waterproof Lip Liner is available at Lookfantastic for €17,45.
