The most buzzed about beauty product of 2015 has to be lip liner, thanks to Hollywood’s obsession with shape enhancing definition! So the product development buffs at Issada went into the lab and emerged with the ULTIMATE lip liner!
Why so ultimate? Ultimate Lip Liner delivers kiss-proof, precise definition that eliminates feathering, fading and bleeding, AND it treats the lip area with anti-aging botanicals and minerals at the same time!
In the past, industry standard synthetic makeup brushes have come with a compromise on efficacy and quality, but in a two-year development process, Issada has worked tirelessly with the world’s best global manufacturers to develop a new type of synthetic – a ‘Faux-Luxe’ hair.
