There are some makeup products I wear almost every day — like concealer and mascara. Lip liner, however, has never fallen into my can’t-live-without-it camp.
I will go through liner phases in which I’m infatuated with it for a time and layering it beneath all of my glosses and lipsticks. And sometimes — like a mad makeup scientist! — I’ll even mix and match tinted liners to create a completely unique and original shade.
My current favorite liners are the MAC Cremesticks ($15) in Pink Treat (a creamy pink), Summerfruit (a creamy coral) and Honey B. (a creamy, brownish pink).

They feel like they’re gliding on my lips, never skipping or tugging at the skin, and deliver top-notch hydration, too.
I’m in the middle of one of my pro-lip liner phases at the moment, which I probably owe to the Cremesticks, and I’ve been wearing liner way more often than usual (most days).
