I love popping into the KIKO store in westfield to see what products they have on sale. They usually have a table down the middle where they've got discounted lip liners, lip sticks, nail polishes etc and I've picked up a number of lip liners for the bargain sum of £1. These glossy lip pencils usually retail for £5.80 so that's a 80% discount. You can currently grab them for £1 on the website too, which could be a sign that they are being discontinued.

I'd compare the texture of this to a MAC lustre but instead of a vanilla scent it has a fruity scent. It takes a while to build up the colour and then leaves the lips feeling moisturised, slightly sticky and somewhat wet looking. I sharpened 614 and as I tried to apply it again, the tip fell off. I find you have to press quite hard to get enough pigment so I see this being a common occurrence and if I wear it enough, it'll be half the size in no time. If you're looking for a lip liner to just line the lips or under a lipstick, I definitely wouldn't recommend this. I feel these are designed to be used alone and anything on top would feel weird.
If you're looking for a cheap lip liner (when it's on sale of course) and want to stay away from the usual drying/matte lip liners you can find, then KIKO is an option. They usually have lots of shades so I'm sure you can find something to suit you.
Till next time...Toodles! :)
