Which lipstick or lip liner is ever called semi permanent? I haven’t heard of it and could have never imagined that such thing could exist. Provoc semi permanent gel lip liners are available at Beautiful.After I swatched all the shades for the first time, I knew I could not buy just one.
This intense vibrant pencil is beyond amazing, think contour and lipstick combined! It enhances you lips creating full, matte look, you can now control the coloring and the effect you want. Once applied and waited upon for a minute, it won’t smudge at all! To add a shine or shimmery touch, tab some Vaseline on or a nude gloss for a polished finish.
Price: INR 699
The lip liner comes in a plastic pencil with the creamiest formula within. Packaging is my biggest pet peeve and I cannot ignore it any more. Sharpening the pencil means a lot of wastage. I am not sure if there is a sharpener made especially for the lip liner. With a regular sharpener, it’s a nightmare.
The lip pencil has a good side to it, which makes me want them all. Good side is nothing, but the formula. The gel like texture glides smoothly on the lips with a bang on pigmentation in a single stroke. Once applied it takes just a minute to dry down to a sticky formula, which will not budge. This also makes the lip liner and product like lipstick/lipgloss stay on for very long.
The available color range is awesome. Swatches of all four colors I own are shown below:
34 Scene Stealer: A perfect peachy shimmery color which does not require gloss on top.
18 Irresistable: Neutral matte pink which will go with any light to deep pink lipstick shade.
38 Barely There: Perfect brown nude for medium skin tones.
32 Naughty by Nice: Blend of pink and mauve. It reminds me of 90’s lip color that everyone is mad about these days.

Overall Rating: 3.8/5
Provoc Semi Permanent Gel Lip Liner is one of the best lip liners I have ever used. The only reason for me to rate them low is because of the packaging. I wish the pencils were in retractable format. If they could change the packaging, I can buy them all. It’s a perfect lip liner that provides the best formula, pigmentation, matte finish and is smudge proof.
