Reverse lip liners are a great makeup secret. Artists have known about this little trick for years, since very light lip liners help prevent your lipstick from running or bleeding outside of your lip line without adding extra color. For that reason, this cool tool is especially applicable to this season's hot red lips trend. So far, I've come across two different products on the market. Here they are.
Cargo The Reverse Lip Liner is a neutral lip pencil that acts as insurance for your lipstick or lip gloss. It adds a little bit of definition to your lips and will help make your color stand out. You can also get creative and use this as an inner eyeliner. Buy it here for $14.
DuWop Reverse Lip Liner is a clear, matte lip pencil. This chunkier stick helps to fill in fine lines around your mouth area, since it's super moisturizing and smooth. It acts as a blockade to help fence in lip color. Buy it here for $19.
