writing things i’d like to read

In its creation, The LipLiner served as the creative oasis for two twenty-somethings, looking for somewhere to make permanent their thoughts as they navigate post-grad life, job hunting and this next step  that colloquially has been dubbed “adulting.” Our mission statement once read: Have you ever tried putting on a beautiful, brand-new, half-off Urban Decay lipstick and gotten it smudged all over the place, regardless of how hard you tried to keep it neat? That’s kind of like life.

In the two years since, we aren’t claiming to have a better handle on anything life throws our way, but we keep writing in hopes that one day it makes sense.

Trust us, LipLiner is a good investment.
