I went into a location to buy this lip pencil. I was looking for a color that matched the natural shade of my lips. The color itself is perfect. I can fill in any imperfections on my lips and no one can really tell. My complaint is the "long wear" aspect of the product. It simply is not long lasting. I expect my liner to outlive my cup of coffee or ice tea. This product did not and literally rubbed off onto my cup. Let's just say that by the time I finished my coffee, it had ample liner and I had zero left. I simply don't have time to reapply constantly and I simply do not want too. I am not drinking hot coffee through a straw either.

Review for: Hover more...
These are really good higher end lip liners.
They are a pencil so they need to be sharpened.
I find this formula to be a bit more drying than I prefer which is why I gave it four stars.
It is a little bit tricky to apply because of it’s darker formula so I either wear a lip balm under or just warm it up a bit on the back of my hand before applying.
They last very long on the lips.
And they have a wide range of colors to choose from. Anything from nudes to pinks to reds to bolder colors.
It’s also a pretty long pencil so it lasts a bit longer than the standard drug store liners.

Review for: Stripdown more...
The color of this lip liner is perfect, it’s a beautiful cool toned brown nude that pairs perfectly with a lighter lipstick for an ombré lip. The only thing is with this formula it’s almost too stiff, when lip liners are too creamy they move around too much and you go through them really fast but this one is almost too stiff. You have to really push down to get it to work and it can leave flakes if the lip liner. It’s a bit hard to use but I love the color so much I’ll use it anyway and it’s not the worst lip liner.

Mac lip liners are great and I have used them for years. I think they offer a wide selection of colors that ar very everyday wearable for your everyday woman. While these are rest and priced fairly, I do think that there are many drugstore options that preform just as well and sometimes better for a cheaper price. These are wooden lip liners so they are a little dryer than other options. Some women enjoy this and some don't, all personal preference.

Review for: Cherry more...
I have a few red lipsticks but I did not want to invest in a separate liner for each, so I chose this cherry one and honestly it works so well for all three colors. It’s a little too light for one, a little too blue for another, but honestly in the end it matches well enough that it’s worth not having to buy three lip liners. It goes on super creamy but I wish it was a little more opaque, I feel like I have to pass over the area two or three times. But once I do, the color achieved is what I’m looking for.

Review for: Ruby Woo, Cork more...
Most MAC lip pencils have a creamy consistency and matte finish that makes them perfect to pair with the classic lipsticks.  A lot of the pencils have a corresponding lipstick shade but there are so many shades to choose from that you can mix and match to your heart's content.  Compared to the  M.A.C Cosmetic Lip Pencil , these have the more traditional pencil format which can easily be sharpened.  

If you don't have Cork, you are seriously missing out.  This color is perfect for EVERY nude, especially on dark skin.  It's my go to color for  M.A.C Cosmetic Lipstick Velvet Teddy because it keeps me from looking ashy.

Review for: Heroine, Currant, Chestnut more...
I have been using my Mac lip pencils for about a year now. I love them. They are easy application. The product is very smooth and soft. Only thing is that you have to sharpen this product, so if you don’t like sharpening you lip liners then this isn’t the product for you. I recommend this to all the lip liner fanatics and lipstick lovers. This is by far the best lip liners I have ever used.

Review for: Whirl more...
I got the lip liner and lipstick for Christmas! I LOVE this pencil. It’s not a rough pencil so it doesn’t snag your lips. The color is amazing. I nice brown/nude. It’s kind of what I have been gravitating toward lately as I am in school and can’t be bothered to get fulll glam. I don’t know how much the kit cost, but I know that NYX Slim Lip Liner Pencil are a good alternative with a great selection of colors.

Review for: Vino more...
I bought this liner with a similar shade lip for NYE. it’s very intense and I suck at applying so I ended up just wiping it off. it’s so dense so I would recommend true skill in application if you use it because it does not allow room for mess-ups. it’s pricier so unless I get skilled at application I don’t love that I spent so much money on it for one night that I didn’t even utilize it.

I have this pencil in Ruby woo, cherry mahogany strip down,brick, cork and well I can't remember more, so needless to say I like the pencil and have repurchased in the past and will repurchase again!!! I love Mac lip products and have a huge collection. I highly recommend anyone to try these. One tip is that try to pick dull colors, they can avoid any lipstick from looking pale /ashy !
