Like lip gloss, even the best lip liners get a bad rap. Blame it on ’90s supermodels and pretty much anyone else who wore them in the ’90s—that chalky, two-toned, overdone look most certainly didn’t do any favors. But just as Brenda Walsh and the rest of the 90210 gang suddenly came back into our lives this year, lip liner has made a triumphant return. KKW Beauty, Haus Laboratories, and Victoria Beckham are only some of the latest brand to release new lip pencils that’ll make you rethink your opinion of them.
Gone are the waxy, overdrying formulas you remember, and in their place is a new class of lip liners that glide on like butter. Not only do they have the ability to double the wear time of your favorite lipstick, but they also easily make your lips look fuller. If you’re not entirely sold, our editors tried out everything from the celebrity-loved Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk to the just launched Patrick Ta Lip Crayon.
