If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen me tagging the Australian cruelty-free beauty brand Mirenesse quite often. Each time I use products from this brand, I fall more in love with them because of the amazing quality and pigmentation. There are several products from Mirenesse that I have been using, and loving, and it is high time that I reviewed those. So today I am showing you the Mirenesse Auto Lip Liner Duets in the shades Racy Reds, Playful Pinks and Coral Crush which I have been wearing quite often….

The Mirenesse Auto Lip Liner Duets come in sleek, black duel ended pencils with the shade shown as a diamond. The lip liner is dual-ended with two shades from the same colour family on either end; one for the day and one for night. There isn’t really much difference in the shades when applied on my pigmented lips, as you will see in the swatches below. The side nearer the “diamond” has slightly lighter shades as compared to the other side. I am really glad that these are twist up pencils and don’t need sharpening.
The pigmentation of these lip liners is simply INCREDIBLE as is the texture and the longevity. Though they are totally matte, they don’t feel dry on the lips and are far easier to apply than many other lip liners. The also feel weightless on the lips and you even forget that you are wearing an intensely pigmented shade. I have worn these for as long as 10 hours and they have stayed INTACT without any fading or feathering. In fact, Bhumika of New Love Makeup even asked me which lipstick I was wearing since it barely got transferred onto my coffee cup! The raspberry oil, shea fruit butter and cocoa seed butter in these lip liners make these feel so soft and comfortable on the lips even if you wear them all day.
I have these lip liners in 3 colours; Racy Reds, Playful Pinks and Coral Crush. The Playful Pinks are my absolute favourite of the lot though, now in the festive season I can see myself wearing more of the Reds. Here are the swatches of all the 3 pencils – six shades totally – and you will see that there is just a slight difference in the two shades of the pencil.
For the lip swatches, I wore the lighter shade on the upper lip and the darker one on the lower lip but you can’t really make out the difference. Perhaps that is because of my pigmented lips…
The normal price of the Mirenesse Auto Lip Liner Duets is AUD 39.95 each (approximately ₹1950 but for the Mirenesse VIP members, the price is AUD 19.98 (approx ₹965). The VIP membership comes at AUD 25 per month but it gets you huge discounts on the products. Even if you don’t take the membership, subscribe to their newsletter because they have special promos and discounts almost every day so you can definitely get fabulous deals on the products like I mentioned when I reviewed the Mattfinity Lip Rouge.
The Mirenesse Auto Lip Liner Duets are simply fabulous in every way – pigmentation, shades, longevity and textures – and I highly recommend them. When I wear these lip liners, I don’t even layer another lipstick on top because these are very opaque and pigmented. They are really good value for money too because you don’t need to touch up the entire day. Which shade did you like the most? Do let me know in the comments.
