Oh I do love the look of a full voluptuous pout and a great lip liner can really help to achieve that look.
My usual go to is the Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillow Talk by Charlotte Tilbury as many of you will already know from my LIVES on the WhatLauraLoves Instagram but in August I was given the paraben free CODE SSL Soft Smooth Lip Liner from CODE Beautiful and loved it straight away. I have found myself reaching for it more and more, especially as we’re now in autumn as the universal shade of the lip liner, which is designed for all skin tones, is the perfect nude for this time of the year.
Unlike regular lip liners, this one is a 3 in 1 lip liner, lipstick & lip plumper and even has plumping ingredients within the formula that help to stimulate collagen when you use it to fill in your lips.
I like to use it to outline my lips and fill them in and I do overdraw them slightly for an even plumper pout, which this lip liner does with ease. I have a slight bump on one side of my lips and find that this liner helps me to be able to shape them slightly to even them out. It is so simple to use, soft and blendable.
It looks gorgeous on its own as it has the coverage of a lipstick but can be worn underneath a lipstick too to make it last longer and to prevent feathering of the lipstick or gloss. I would love to see CODE Beautiful bring this lip liner out in more shades. This one is stunning but theres so much potential for them to expand the line further to create a whole range of stunning shades!
Aside from how gorgeous the lip liner is, it is the packaging that really makes it stand out against others on the market. I LOVE the packaging as each time you put the lid on, twist and click it to close, it sharpens the tip so that EVERY time you go to use it, it’s ready to go, perfectly pointed and I get the same gorgeous result every time.
