Isadora Perfect Lip Liner "Subtle Nude" Review


Hello everyone,

     Today I will be reviewing a lip pencil from a Swedish brand called Isadora in the shade ”Subtle Nude”.  Isadora is new to Indian readers as I think it is not yet available in India.  I love the products from this brand, they have good collections and also some lovely colors especially I love their nail polishes.


Price: € 7.5 for 1.2 g (≈₹ 585)

I brought it in Turku, Finland where I live and they have variety of shades and you can check out their products here .

About the Product: Lip contour pencil, lip-fix and matte lipstick – three products in one!

– Soft formula
– Richly pigmented
– Prevents lipstick from bleeding
– Water-resistant
– Sharpen with IsaDora Pencil Sharpener Slim

Contains: Jojoba oil, Cottonseed oil, Vitamin C and E. Fragrance free. Clinically tested.



     Isadora lipliners comes in wooden pencil packaging which also sharpens smoothly without breaking. The pencil comes in black color with the color of the shade at the bottom, hence it is easy to identify if you have many lip pencils.  They have around 18 different wide range of shades in this range which are named and also numbered, they also have a transparent lipliner in this range, which I will try out soon.   The lip pencils does not contain any shimmers, are well pigmented and glides fairly smooth without tugging the lips.  Once applied, they settle to a matte finish hence, the lips feel dry after couple of hours which can be taken care of applying a lip balm.   People who have dry lips like me can use a lip balm underneath so that it applies smoothly and does not make your lips feel dry.  I either apply them on top of a lip balm or apply them directly on my lips and then top it with a lip gloss, hence they do not feel dry even after few hours of wear time.  They lasts long for around 4-5 h, but if you only apply the lip pencil without lip balm or lip gloss, then it lasts for 6-7 h. The shade Subtle Nude looks dark on the pencil, but on the lips it comes out as a beautiful nude brown shade with slight pink undertones that will make a good work wear lip color and also can be a MLBB for many people who have slightly pigmented lips.  It can also be worn under various shades of lipsticks and lip glosses and it does not alter the color of the lipsticks, but increases their staying power.
