I'm obsessed with this R.E.M. Beauty lip liner — and it's on sale for Black Friday weekend

"Oh my goodness, this lip liner is a total game changer!"

Black Friday is over — but the Cyber Week deals are still going strong, and one of my favourite lip liners is majorly marked down: R.E.M. Beauty's At the Borderline Lip Liner Pencil.

Why am I such a fan? The story goes like this: My trusted liner got discontinued, so I picked up this pencil in the shade "Lyrics" because it was nearly a perfect colour match. After one swipe, I was hooked.

This highly pigmented lip liner mightily impressed me with its precise tip and "creamy, yumminess of a lipstick" as Ariana Grande (the brand's founder) puts it.

This Lip Liner Pencil isn't the cheapest tool in the beauty box — but it's currently 30% off, bringing its price down to $17 CAD.

Read on for the details and why I think it's worth the buy.

The details

For me, a lip liner has to have a sturdy tip that glides easily and draws defined lines, major staying power, and a creamy texture that can blend seamlessly or pass over the lips to cover them.

IMO, this lip liner s all of those things — plus it has a convenient built-in sharpener.

It also comes in 10 gorgeous colours, ranging from beige-nude to my preferred shade, "Lyrics," a beautiful chestnut rose closest to my natural lip colour.

This pencil also comes in a handful of more vivid colours like red and a violet-burgundy.

What other people are saying

Like me, shoppers seem to be loving this lip liner — it's racked up perfect 5-star reviews.

"Oh my goodness, this lip liner is a total game-changer! It's texture is so creamy and pigmented, it glides right on," said one reviewer. "It's also long-lasting — perfect for all-day wear. Totally in love!"

I couldn't agree more — the colour payoff and smudge proof-ness surprised me, considering how creamy the texture is.

Other shoppers are "so in love with this lip liner pencil" because it perfectly matches their tried-and-true lipstick.

"The colour is just perfect, a gorgeous hue that complements my favourite lipstick. It glides smoothly on my lips," another reviewer said. "Such a game-changer!"

The verdict

If you're looking for a reliable lip liner, Ariana Grande's R.E.M. Beauty's At the Borderline Lip Liner Pencil is the one to add to your beauty routine.

A new constant in my cosmetic bag, it smudges perfectly into clear or tinted gloss— you don't need to layer lipstick over the top.

While many celebrity products don't pass muster — this is one I'll stand behind, especially at its current sale price.
