  10. Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner – (Rs. 295/5 gms) – Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liners are available in 5 shades and comes in a sharepnable pencil form with colored packaging to make it easily identifiable. I got 4 of these lip liners and they do apply smoothly without drying out lips but the formula doesn’t adhere well and starts to smudge soon. Hence, they are not effective as lip liner to prevent the lipstick from bleeding. The lip liner can be worn underneath a lipstick but the staying powder isn’t enhanced much as the formula is creamy which starts loosing itself with the lipstick.Best Lip Liner India -Maybelline color sensational lip liner

Apart from these affordable and drugstore Lip liners, there is more brand that should be mentioned here..!! yes thats “MAC”.

MAC Lip Pencils (Rs.1450/1.45gms) – MAC lip pencils are surely one of the luxuriest lip liners in India. The Mac lip pencils are available in a wide selection of colours and have a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for lining the lips or filling them in. They have a beautiful pigmentation that can give an opaque coverage in single stroke. The formula however can be little drying based on the shade so one need to  do proper moisturizing before application. The pencil comes in a standard ,matte black sharpenable packaging with a colored band at the bottom.Best Lip Liner India - MAC Lip Pencil

    Another great list Poonam :)..I absolutely love the Lakme absolute forever silk and 9 to 5 ones. Prefer the silk lipliners though as they are retractable. I hate using sharpners cos product wastage 🙁

    Btw I think Oriflame wonder color lip liner deserve a mention too here!!!
    they are in super cute shades..Colorpay off is decent and pricing is affordable. love them to the core.

    Great list but I’m surprised that Oriflame is not listed here. I’ve got a few lip liners from this brand and they were really amazing. My current favorite is Oriflame wonder colors lip liners. These cute lip liners are great comfort to line the lips in terms of color coded packaging which is a blessing when i am in a huryy.
