I picked up two of the Smart Lip Pencils when I was last in London. The first colour I have is 702 which is a peachy pink nude shade. The other is 703 which is a deep, red toned nude. Both of these are slightly creamy but definitely matte. That can feel a little drying on their own so I tend to use these underneath another lip product.
I haven't tried much from the Primark makeup range but I love these lip liners and i've heard they're one of the stand out products. The first colour I have is 08 which is a peachy nude, this is more warm toned and not as pink as I initially thought it would be. The other shade is 03 which is a classic red colour and definitely my favourite. It's bold and looks really good when worn alone. The formula of these are are creamy, yet matte and are surprisingly comfortable to wear whilst lasting a long time without fading.
I have two types of Essence lip liners. The first is the basic Lip Liner in Wish Me A Rose. This is the perfect cool toned pink and one I reach for a lot. This one is again very comfortable whilst still giving a matte finish. The other type is the Long Lasting Lip Liner which is a lot softer and creamy so a good option if you have dry lips. The shade I have is Yummy Berry which is a lovely pink, berry colour. I love the formula of both these are definitely want to get some more shades.
Ending on the most expensive with the 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in Mrs Mia Wallace. This was a limited edition shade but it's made me love the formula of these pencils. It's very comfortable to wear, doesn't feel drying, is easy to apply and last so well. This shade is a berry red shade which looks great alone or under lipsticks. I'm definitely a budget girl but these are worth the money for me.

So that's my lip liner collection. My favourites are Essence and Urban Decay. Both have great formulas and a good colour selection. Essence are such good value for money so you can pick up lots of different shades for not a lot of money. What are you favourite lip liners?
