When I received the Youngblood Lip Liner Pencil ($14) I was excited to try it.  I had read in Kristen's makeup article about lip liners that Youngblood made one of her favorites.  I have used lip liners in the past and always stopped because they were so drying.  I am 52 and I have those lines around the lips from years of smoking.  So when I would use lip liners they always seemed to accentuate the area.

I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at the performance of Youngblood.  I received it about 4 weeks ago and I use it all the time.  The color I received was “Sequin” and it was a perfect color for me.  I was waiting for it to fail, but it was wonderful.  It had staying power and was not drying at all.  In fact, it seemed to moisturize my lips.  The ReLuma serum ($135 in the TIA store) has helped with the lines and the liner just seemed to stay most of the day.  It made my lips look amazing.  I would definitely like to try their lipsticks and glosses now.

I took a look at the ingredients and almost every ingredient is good for your skin.  I never used to look at ingredients until I became a TIA follower.  It has proven to be a very important part of my regimen now.  The only ingredient that was even somewhat on the dark side was titanium dioxide.  I don't believe there is enough in the product to be a danger to anyone, though.  There are so many emollients in this lip liner, and I could find nothing else negative, really.

I will definitely keep using it.  I would like it a bit better if it was an automatic pencil, but it is worth the price.  Thanks for really changing my thoughts about lip liner.
