My Lips But Better with Annabelle Stay Sharp Lip Liner and Twist Up Lipstick Crayon

What's your go-to lip? Nude, red, purple? Mines my natural lip colour. However, it looks weird if my whole face is done up, but I have nothing on my lips. So, I am always on the lookout for products that are slightly pink with brownish undertones. But not too pink or brown, like the perfect mix.
This lip colour gives me that my lips but better look that compliments the simplest of looks to the most extreme. It doesn't make me look washed out like most nude shades do, but it isn't bam in your face. It's simply perfect.
I've recently found two new products to help me achieve this look, together and on their own. They are the Stay Sharp Waterproof Lip Liner in Java and the Twist Up Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Romance. On their own Java brings the brown, and Romance brings the pink. Alone they look great, but together it's magic; a match made in lip product heaven.

Stay Sharp Waterproof Lip Liner

This lip liner comes equipped with the stay sharp twist-on cap which includes a sharpener. Every time the cap is twisted back on the pencil, the blades sharpen the tip to perfection and neatly keep the shavings in the cap. No fuss, no mess.
This product retails for $9.95 and comes in 6 different shades: Nude, Java, Vintage, Glam Rd, Strike a Rose, and Berry.
This lip liner offers a creamy, ultra pigmented formula that lasts up to 6 hours with no transferring. I haven't tested the kiss proof-ness of this product, but it is coffee and food proof. Not gonna lie, this is probably the best lip liner I've ever used.

Annabelle Twist Up Retractable Lipstick Crayon

Dare to be colourful with this easy retractable lipstick and lip liner in one. No sharpener required.
It's not a secret that I love lip crayons. Thy make application a breeze, which is ideal for someone as lazy as me. This crayon is definitely a lipstick, whereas most other pencils, are a gloss or balm. However, it isn't drying as it is enriched with nourishing ingredients like Omega 3 and Shea Butter.
It glides on smooth and is opaque in just one swipe. Although it doesn't last as long as Java before transferring, I still get a few hours of wear before I require re-application.
Overall, I don't go anywhere without these two products, and I wear them 95% of the time. These will definitely be Holy Grail and repurchase products.

  4. I could totally see how these colors would work with your skin tone! Annabelle makes some great lip products. Breeze from the Twist Up line is my MLBB go to.
