Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner

I’ve been wanting to try out one of those clear lip liners for a while now but I’m not currently buying any new beauty products (well apart from essentials and the MAC lippie I treated myself to for my birthday).  So when I saw that the current issue of Company Magazine included various Model Co products and that one was something called an illusion lip liner, I decided to give it a try.


This comes with a built in sharpener in the lid, which at first appears like a really good idea, but then I’m not so sure.  To sharpen the pencil you just twist it while it’s still inside the lid and then pull the pencil out.  Obviously this is a soft pencil so although the wood part of the pencil just falls away easily the actual liner part kind of sticks to the sharpener and then this can get messy.  As the sharpener has to stay with the pencil you’d need to clean this up straight away.


I have to be honest and say I just don’t understand this product.  The box claims that this is ‘one shade suits all’ and that it’s flesh-coloured, but I personally find the colour really strange.  I can understand a lip liner that matches the colour of your lipstick, or a clear one that just works as a barrier, but this shade doesn’t match any lip colours I own, my skin colour or my lip colour.  So I’m not quite sure what to do with it.  Surely once I apply it you’ll be able to see it as it won’t match my lipstick or skin?
Maybe I’m missing something?  I’ve never actually used lip liner before so I have no experience of them.

Did anyone else get one of these with Company Magazine?
