Buxom Power Line™ Plumping Lip Liner are known for their creamy texture, long-lasting formula, and wide range of shades. These lip liners are designed to glide on smoothly, providing precise definition and preventing feathering or bleeding and add additional plumping to your pout. These favorite lip liners are also waterproof!

Exploring the shades

The Buxom Power Line Plumping Lip Liner collection features a variety of shades to suit different preferences and skin tones. From classic nude shades to bold reds and pinks, there is a shade for every occasion. Top shades include HUSH HUSH HENNA - the ultimate nude and DANGEROUS DOLLY - a beautiful mauve. 

Dark lip liners are trending. Want to join the trend? Try shade CREAMY CHOCOLATE. Brown lip liners are also popular - especially when paired with a nude lip gloss. Try shade HI-DEF HONEY. More into a classic Pink Lip Liner? Opt for shade RICH ROSE

Pairing lip liners with lipsticks or lip glosses

When it comes to pairing lip liners with lipsticks or lip glosses, you either want the liner and gloss or lipstick to match and melt together seamlessly, or you want there to be a stark contrast. For example, the 90's Nostalgia Look that is very trendy pairs a brown lip liner with a softer shade in the middle. Or you could pair a pink lip liner with a pink lipstick for a cohesive and polished look.

Overlined Lips

A very trendy look right now is overlined lips? The technique involves using lip liner to draw outside the lines of your lips, thereby making your lips look bigger. Overline the top lip and create a cupids bow above your actual cupids bow. Then overline your bottom lips to create a poutier effect. 

Lip Flip 

Don't have full lips? No problem. The Lip Flip Technique is achieved using lip liner and makes lips appear poutier. 

Use Power Line Plumping Lip Liner in a shade close to your skin tone and to over line the center of the bottom lip. Use the same shade to over line the cupids bow and then extend the line tightly to your lip line. Flip the pencil over and use the brush side to blend inwards and soften the line. We recommend shade SMOOTH SPICE or HI-DEF HONEY.

If you used SMOOTH SPICE for step 1, use HI-DEF HONEY, a brown shade 3 shades darker than SMOOTH SPICE and make a line tight inside of the previously drawn outline. If you previously used HI-DEF HONEY, we recommend you use CREAMY CHOCOLATE for this step. This will create depth and definition. Make sure to shade in the corners of the lips with the pencil and once again using the brush side to soften things up. The center of the lips should be a natural, pink shade - Try Power-Full Plump Lip Balm in shade BIG O.  

Final thoughts

Experimenting with different lip liner and lipstick pairings can help you discover new looks and enhance your overall makeup routine. Whether you prefer a subtle nude lip or a statement red lip, the Buxom Power Line™ Plumping Lip Liner collection has a shade for every style.
