Who came up with the term "beauty secrets" anyway? If there's a technique or product that really works, shout it from the rooftops and let everyone know what's up. Don't keep those insights to yourself. Thankfully, there are plenty of celebrities who don't abide by the concept of keeping beauty secrets private.

Specifically, Olivia shared, "What I like about this liquid lip liner is that it doesn't drop and it doesn't smudge. It also has a really great applicator.
