Remember when Kylie Cosmetics basically took over the beauty industry in 2015, and you couldn’t go on the makeup side of YouTube without seeing influencers use Kylie Lip Kits? Well, this era basically raised a whole generation to overline their lips for that bee-stung look (it’s not lip fillers guys, it’s just lip liner!). Well, while we no longer overline our lips that much, there’s no denying that lip liners really can accentuate your lips and help you get that polished look.

Lip liners are actually super useful. They can help create a more defined lip border, make your lips look fuller, change the shape of your lips, and they can even serve as a sort of primer to help your lipstick stay on for longer. Or if you want to, you could apply it like regular lipstick and call it a day. So, whether you’re a diehard lip liner fan, or if you’re just delving into incorporating lip liners into your makeup routine, let’s take a look at some of the best lip liners in Malaysia!
