Revlon Lip Liner Pencil in Blackberry Review, Swatch
A few weeks back, I reviewed Revlon lip liner pencil in Plumwine shade (check its review here). It has smooth and creamy texture. The shade is perfect to wear individually or under a lipstick/lip-gloss, that too in pretty reasonable price. I got so drawn to this lip liner that this weekend I shopped for Blackberry shade of the same range.
I am not a frequent user of lip liners as they need couple of minutes in cautiously outlining lips. During my weekday’s routine I am already swamped with so many other things that I could not spare even a single extra minute for doing makeup-shakeup. But after I started applying (of course not that frequently) the plumwine one, the lip-liner application seem hassle free. It glides on to lips so smoothly and perfectly that the job gets over in no time, does not even take 60 seconds.
Revlon lip liner Blackberry shade mingles well with dark shades of red such as burgundy, maroon, carmine, etc. I have a couple of red tone lipsticks lying around so I thought this lip liner would be the best boundary definer for them. Texture wise, blackberry follows the plumwine traits. I mean it has a soft and creamy texture that makes the pencil effortlessly work while filling lips. Other than that it confines the lipstick/lip-gloss within in the boundary without feathering. Overall, the texture has most of the things I would look for in a lip liner.
As I have said earlier, Blackberry shade is kind of maroonish or dark red shade. It has high pigmentation, which looks somewhat uneven if I wear it alone. Every time I mustered all the courage to wear it alone, just as I do with plumwine shade, I had to top up a lipstick eventually. Wearing this lip-liner alone gives an irregular impression of the application.
Being a dark shade, even if I wear it underneath a lipstick, I find it difficult to carry with casual wear. A couple of times when I wore it to office, I was embarrassed from the attention I got (deadly stares ). It felt as if it was making me stand out (in an embarrassed way) from rest of the crowd. So I went to the restroom and wiped it off completely, feeling relieved after becoming a part of the crowd again .
But this shade is a perfect wear for parties or other occasions where you need to go all decked up. For those occasions it makes you feel a part of the crowd, yet stand out (in a positive manner ).
