As if you needed even more confirmation, the 90s are back. We rock mullets, we scramble to find Clinique’s Black Honey lipstick, and our hair is tied up in hot rollers. Now what, Juicy Couture and Chia Pets? Basically it’s a return to lip liners. But let’s face it, a ’90s revival or not, you’ve probably already checked out a few lip pencils in the store. If you’ve ever wanted to line your lips for some fake injection plumpness, a lip liner is a must-have. Or maybe you just want your lips to look nicely defined when you wear red lipstick. Whatever your lip goals, chances are a lip liner is involved.

But this is also true: lip liners are a little intimidating. First of all, there’s the chaos of finding one that goes with your favorite lipstick color (my trick is, don’t! An ombré lip is cute, guys), making sure the color doesn’t bleed into your mouth lines, and also try the hand -Develop eye coordination needed to get an accurate line. Using lip liners is actually easier than you might think. With the right blendable color, long-lasting pigment, and hopefully a sharpener, you can outline your lips with one hand, mirrorless, on the subway. Plumped, super-defined lips are just a few strokes away. Here’s the 14 best lip liners for your new ’90s go-to pout.

Best Overall

Lip Cheat Lip Liner

If you’re looking for a classic lip liner, with all the pros and no cons, look no further than the Charlotte Tilbury liner. It is creamy, pigmented and long lasting. Plus, the color range includes all nude and berry shades, so you can fake a fuller lip when you’re in the mood.

Best for a budget

Colorstay lip liner

For just $2 you get a lot. Not only is this lip liner incredibly pigmented, but it also comes with a built-in sharpener so you never get that dull line around your mouth. Plus, this pencil comes in a ton of different shades to match your extensive lipstick collection.

Best smooth finish

Slim Lip Pencil

For the makeup novice, it takes some practice to get a perfect lip line. A lip liner like this one that is super creamy makes it easy to correct mistakes. Just grab a Q-Tip and rub your lips to correct any mistakes – it looks like you did it perfectly in one swipe.

Best abrasion resistant liner

Stay 8H Waterproof Lipliner

We all know lipstick can smudge, but when lip liners move, it’s chaos. Bleeding lip liner can seep into the fine lines around your mouth, exacerbating wrinkles. That’s why this lip liner is a great product to have in your back pocket – it lasts up to eight hours without needing to touch it up, and as a bonus, it’s waterproof.

Best matte lip liner

Badass MF Matte Filler Lip Liner

Great matte lip liners can be hard to find because so many of them are chalky or hard to use. This pencil has managed to overcome all those hurdles: it’s incredibly smooth which makes application a breeze, but still has that highly pigmented matte finish we all love.

Best for overlips

Ultra Suede™ Shaping Lip Pencil

Why take fillers when you can use this lip liner instead? If you’re drawn to a lip that’s too outlined, you’ll need a pencil that’s matte, opaque, won’t shift, and comes in a range of nude shades.
