Regular readers will know by now that I love Urban Decay and I love Gwen Stefani. I've recently been sharing the limited edition collection which features everything you need to cover eyes, lips and cheeks, and today I'll be delving into the Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils. I decided to share these separately to my Gwen Stefani Lipsticks review, because it's my first time trying lip liners from Urban Decay, and I really think they deserve the spotlight all to themselves!
I'm no stranger to the 24-7 formula, having been a huge fan of the eye pencils of the same name, but I had never had the urge to try a lip liner from Urban Decay; I'm usually a MAC girl when it comes to lining my lips. Now? I think there might be a new contender in my favourites stash.
Available in 6 shades, each lip liner corresponds to a shade in the lipstick range. Although the lipstick range itself features 8 shades, there's a couple of shades in the liner range which would easily work well alongside more than one of the lipstick shades in the collection.
The formula is creamy yet firm enough to apply precisely. They're incredibly long-lasting due to their waterproof formula, the first waterproof liners I have come across, and can add a real oomph to some of the more sheer shades in the lipstick range. There's also some lovely conditioning ingredients in there, such as Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Cottonseed Oil, which helps to stop lips drying and becoming uncomfortable throughout the day.
Of course you don't have to use these exclusively with the Gwen Stefani lipsticks; team them with any lipstick with a matching shade and you're sure to have a winning duo.
The first time I tried the liner range I wore Firebird, teamed with Firebird lipstick. The impact the two together gave, the intensity of the colour pay-off and the sheer longevity the two teamed together provide, left me in awe by the end of the day. It has been a long time since I have come across lip liners which are so incredible, which have impressed me with formula, wearability and long-lasting staying power.
If you need to update your lip liner stash, have been on the hunt for that perfect formula to keep your lipsticks in place all day without budging, smudging or feathering, then this range is definitely one to check out. Just remember to snap them up quick, as these limited edition beauties are sure to sell out soon!
Available at Urban Decay counters nationwide and online at www.urbandecay.co.uk, £14.
