MAC Lip Liners 

I’m not surprised that the pros' favorite lip pencils are from MAC Cosmetics. Why? Because they make a damn good product. MAC offers two lip liners: their Patentpolish Lip Pencil and their Lip Pencil. Let’s start with the Patentpolish. 

It’s available in 14 shades and provides the comfort of a balm, the color and sheen of a gloss, and the precision of a lip pencil. No sharpening required either--it uses a twist-up applicator. Patentpolish is a must-have multitasking tool for your kit.

MAC’s Lip Pencil is no slouch either. It’s smooth, it’s creamy, and it was designed to shape, line, and fill the lips. Whether you’re outlining the lips or coloring in, MAC’s Lip Pencils get the job done beautifully.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat 

Finishing a close second was Charlotte Tilbury’s amazing Lip Cheat liners. Her velvety liners are great because they go on smooth, they’re barely visible, and they last most of the day. And they do a fabulous job of reshaping and resizing lips. 

Plus, they come in a wide range of shades and are a very affordable addition to your makeup bag.
