Petite, gradient lips are a thing of the past—we are now in the reign of the plump, over-lined lip look.

As important as your plumping lip gloss is in achieving the trendy pout, a good lip liner might be the key to getting down that lip look you saw on TikTok.

If you don’t already own a reliable lip liner you can always count on, or if you’d like to expand your makeup collection and bring home one or two (how about 15?) more lip liners to experiment on different looks with, you’re in right place.

In this article, we’ve gathered 15 of best lip liners. Read on for more!

MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil

Lip Liner MAC

Your bold lippie goes hand-in-hand with MAC Cosmetics’ creamy Lip Pencil.

It might not glide on the smoothest, but there’s good reason for its stiffer texture. Compared to other lip liners out there, MAC’s lip pencils have a drier formulation, which prevents the lipstick from bleeding out of your lip lines.

While newer formulas of this lip pencil come with softer textures, offering more comfortable wear, MAC’s lip pencil remains unrivalled in its longevity.
