Spotlight | Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner.

The past two weeks had been extremely hectic, hence the lack of updates in this blog. I was crazy busy and didn't have time for anything else except studying with Yue and preparing for his Final Exams. But now that the exams are over and done with, I'm pretty much stress-free and have lots of time to work on my pending blog projects and my Korean drama backlog, haha!

Yue and I headed over to the mall as soon as his exams ended, for some much needed R&R. For my little man, that means eating a hearty meal at his favorite Korean restaurant and playing arcade games to his heart's content. For me, that means going through beauty counters, swatching testers, and splurging just a wee bit on makeup.

Ever Bilena had a 2+1 Sale on all its lip products over the weekend, and of course, I took advantage of this promo and got myself some new lip liners. Each liner is priced at Php 120; I paid only Php 240 thanks to the weekend promo.
Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner.
Launched earlier this year, the Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner lines and defines and helps you achieve fuller and soft-shaped lips.
Ingredients + usage instructions. 
The matte lip liners are available in twelve shades, and each shade has a corresponding pair in the Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick and Liquid Lipstick line. You get a bolder, more defined look when you pair the matte lip liner with its matching lipstick/liquid lipstick shade. The shades are indicated on the cardboard packaging, but not on the liner itself. Sure, the caps are colored accordingly, but wouldn't it be nice if you have a name to refer to when you're using them?
They're retractable! No need to sharpen, yay!
Nonetheless, I love that these lip liners are retractable - no need to sharpen or worry about jagged edges or the tip breaking off.
Top to Bottom: Siennas, Sexy Nude, Toast of New York.
They also have a soft and creamy texture which makes outlining (and even filling in) a breeze.

They have amazing color payoff, too! These liners are just as pigmented as their lipstick/liquid lipstick counterparts.
From L-R: Siennas, Sexy Nude, Toast of New York - indoor light.

The best part? The Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liners are so versatile, you can actually use them to color your entire lips! If your favorite Ever Bilena counter always runs out of Toast of New York lippies (which is the case here in my area), use the lip liner instead!

Toast of New York - a crowd-favorite, reddish brown shade.

Siennas, is a lighter version of Toast of New York, but just as lovely.

Sexy Nude, a soft, peachy tan shade.
These liners have decent wear time, with the darker shades staying put longer - about four or five hours with no bleeding or smudging even with a bit of eating and drinking. They're very comfortable to wear, and don't feel dry on the lips. These lip liners are pretty impressive, I might just get every single shade in the collection!

I have never actually bought lipliner before, but have always wanted to because it looks so much better than just lipstick! Love the post!

It's amazing how lip liner can make such a difference. I have a thin upper lip, and using lip liner helps it look more plump. I like these shades.

I've never used a lip liner but I've been meaning to buy one since I've been wearing makeup more!

Unknown said...

I never used a lip liner after a disaster in my childhood (that involved a very dark lip liner for every shade lol), so you can imagine the horror! But this looks so good, I can't help but admire your talents. Your beauty helps too ♥

I like the sexy nude color. I have hyper pigmentation on the edge of my lips so I have made lip color a daily staple.

Wow! you look so fabulous with this Ever Bilena product. I think you already have a nice shape of lips and this lip liner enhances it more. Guess Siennas, the lighter version Toast of New York fits you the most. It compliments your skin and your lips. You're so beautiful!
