We all still have this awful memory of our auntie. The one with the dark lined lips – ready to press her wrinkly pout onto our cheeks to show her love. Oh, how we hated it.
But since then a lot has changed, maybe not your auntie, but lipliners! Their aim is now to keep your lipstick from bleeding and making it last from dusk ’til dawn, while looking effortless, chic and unnoticeable.
