Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner Review and Swatches Because You Need THIS In Your Life!

Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner was something I've seen but didn't think that I need until I've tried one during a makeup class at CAS Makati. I'm not very fond of lip liners in general because I've had so many bad buys from pricey brands. Besides, I already have lots of EB Matte Lipstick in bullet form and EB Matte Liquid Lipstick so I figured I won't need the EB Matte Lip Liner but I was sooooo wrong.

Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner Review and Swatches 

Anway, after I've tried the new Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner at the makeup class, I was so baffled why I'm not seeing the product in stores. I thought that perhaps it is not yet available in the market and that we only got a sneak peek in the makeup class but I found it hiding behind brushes in Watson's Waltermart North Edsa! I was so happy because the product was a mere P125 each but saddened because only 2 shades were available in that store. I scoured nearby malls but can only find 4 shades max. The makeup Gods must have been listening to my makeup wishes because just a day after, blogger mail brought me extras along with several other shades, yassss!

So now I am sharing this Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner Review and Swatches with you guys!

What is the Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner?

The EB Matte Lip Liner is one of the newest lip products in Ever Bilena's ever growing arsenal. The product isn't their first lip liner but is leaps and bounds better than their first lip liner product.

The EB Matte Lip Liner is also the newest incarnation of their famed EB matte line which include the EB Matte Lipstick in bullet form and EB Matte Liquid Lipstick (both are links! see my reviews!). 

This product is a retractable lip liner and is available in 12 shades. I've seen this being sold for P125 each in Lazada, Mercury Drug, Watson's, and even SM and Waltermart Supermarkets.

PACKAGING: The packaging is very compact and the retracting mechanism doesn't break easily. I Like that the caps reflect the lip liner's color because the shade name isn't indicated in the pencil itself. The cap fits nicely and it gives that satisfying 'click' that lets you know when the cap was placed correctly.


How to Use the Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner?

Lip liners are supposed to be used for lining the lips (or outlining the lips) but I find that this lip liner is amazing on its own as a long-wearing creamy lip product.In the second to the last photo in this blog post, I've shared my favorite combinations. 

I'll create a separate blog post for that along with my favorite ways to use this product such as creating ombre lips, correcting asymmetrical lip shape, and making the lips appear fuller.

From the 'top': Sexy nude, mirrored mocha, dusk, toast of new york, siennas, pink flame, glam red, and vivid violet

Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner Swatches 

From the LEFT: Sexy Nude, Mirrored Mocha, Dusk, Toast of New York, Siennas, Pink Flame, Glam Red, and Vivid Violet all swatched as 2 swipes of the product. You can clearly see that lighter shades tend to be creamier. This swatch above was photographed under a mixture of sunlight and daylight artificial lighting. 

I'm missing Fierce Red, Love That Red, Vamp Red, and Vogue Diva. Can't find them anywehere :(

The swatches above are in the same order although the photo was taken under late afternoon sun hence having a golden tinge. Placing them side by side in the photo, you can see the subtle differences in the nude shades. 

Please note that for nude lipsticks, it would be best to swatch them over your own skin as skin tones and undertones are a huge factor in how a lippie will look on you. Example, my favorite shade of lipstick which is a dusty brown pink on me looks a lot pinkier when worn by my morena friend. 

soooo pretty! Look how the product fills up the lines on my skin.

Ever Bilena Matte Lip Liner Review Summary

Packaging: 3.5/5 for me because I really wish they've written the shade names on it. The overall design is great but can't get over this because maarte talaga ako haha!

Value for money: 5/5 You get 0.3 grams for P125 which is not bad value for a lip liner...plus the packaging isn't flimsy.

Texture: 4.75/5 Creamy yet firm pencil. Does not break easily but at the same time not super rigid to the pint of being a challenge to apply. Sakto lang. 

Scent: 4.5/5 No weird crayola scent but smells lightly like typical makeup. Scent does not liner.

Application: 4.75/5 Product is creamy and sets to a powder matte finish that is not easily smudged. Doesn't settle on my lip lines rather sort of filling it up. That's good in my book. With this said of course do not forget to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior. This product is good but it can't perform miracles noh haler. 

Lasting Power: 5/5! This lasts 4-8 hours on me when worn alone with the lighter shades fading faster. Transfer is very minimal when worn alone, not like how bullet lippies transfer. I find that when I wear this under bullet lipstick or liquid lipstick, I get an additional 2-3 hours before I see normal fading. Eating oily foods will of course warrant a reapplication. Still, at par with a lot of expensive lip liners so wala ako masabi. 

Cons: Ayoko na wala syang name sa packaging! Gigil is me! Also, the shade Vivid Violet is not as creamy as the rest. But seriously, this is annoying for me because I have to keep them in their original packaging just so I don't mix them up. I know this is mababaw but haler, honest!

Pros: Everything I said above except the con :)

Overall Score: 4.5/5, in my top lip liners list so ain't bad. 

I have another blog post coming up comparing this to the EB matte bullet form and liquid lippies!
