Cheap Thrill: Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob

Some people might call me silly for writing a review on a lipliner when it just so happens to be the first one I have ever owned, but I beg to differ. I think I have enough knowledge in this noggin of mine to tell you if a product is good or not. And yes, this is my first lip liner ever *hangs head in shame*, but I really have just never had the interest. When I think of lip liner, I think of the lady in my town who would always show up at the pool with the ugliest plum lip liner imaginable tracing her lips, and a nude gloss to top it all off. DISGUSTING. I give you the Rimmel lip liner in Eastend Snob. This is a pretty rose color that I think is perfectly suitable for the daytime, or the pool....
     Let the awkward up close and personal lip swatches begin. The first picture is just my naked lips. I would appreciate it greatly if you don't stare at them creepily for too long.
     Next, we have my lips with just the lip liner on. I prefer to fill my whole lips in rather than tracing them, as it makes whatever color you use adhere to your kisser with ease. Eastend snob glides over my lips pretty well, although I wouldn't recommend wearing it alone, as it would dry out your lips.This product is much more rosey toned than my natural lips, but I find it still looks natural. I chose three pink toned lip  products to show you how it looks with different shades of pink- a light, medium, and bright/dark.

                              Last but not least, Nars lipstick in Schiap. Please excuse the fact that I was extremely washed out in this picture.

    Lastly, here are my lips after testing out all of those lip products for you. Not in the best of shape, eh?                                

         I hope you all found these awkwardly close up pictures helpful, and please take note that no lips were harmed in the making of this post. I hope you consider picking up this wonderful product, as it only cost me a few pieces of bubble gum! I hope you all are doing well and have a wonderful day.
