Review for: Stripdown, Whirl, Chicory more...
These are iconic for a reason: they are amazing. These are some of the best lip liners I’ve ever used. I like that they are wooden and sharpen-able, because I personally find the shape of the tip easier to apply than a twist up pencil. MAC lip pencils have the perfect texture: not too creamy, not too dry. Because of this, they stay put all day and if you decide to add a lipstick or gloss over top, it won’t mix together with the lip pencil and get all mucky.

I will say that these opinions apply to the single lip pencils, not ones in the kits that MAC sells where you get a full size lip pencil and lipstick. I’ve tried a few of those and have tossed them since they are so dry that they barely apply. It may seem like a good deal but clearly some corners were cut in order to cut costs.

Macs lip liners are my favorite high end lip liners out there!! My very first lip liner was in the color “strip down.” I bought it because Kim k at the time used it a lot for her signature nude lip and when I tried it, it’s literally all I ever wore with my lipsticks!! Till this day I always reach for that color because it pairs beautifully with every nude lip combo and the longevity is amazing! It lasts all day, doesn’t smear, and the color pay off is the best! My favorite nude lip liners are “whirl, soar, and boldly bare, and strip down.” I’ve used them all and they are holy grail nude lip liners!!! Must have item !

Review for: Hip-N-Happy more...
I've only used one MAC lipstick but it was disappointing enough that I will likely not try others; especially the matte formula. I bought Kinda Sexy which is a gorgeous nude shade. It drags on the lips and is patchy. I can typically layer it up enough to finally get it to look decent but it doesn't last. After an hour, two on a good day, it has almost completely worn off. I know people rave about these so maybe I just got a dud, or maybe it is the matte formula and I would like others, but it doesn't make me want to run out and try more.

First of all this lip liner is a bit expensive for me but , this is how I use the lip liner I over lined my lips a little because I don’t want Kylie lips like girl you tripping so back to what I was saying after I over lined them I fill the inside of my lips 👄 and their it’s done I recommend a lip liner if you want your lips big or small.

Review for: Dervish, Brick more...
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: 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 Cosmetics 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 Cosmetics Lipstick Velvet Teddy because it keeps me from looking ashy.

Review for: Boldly Bare more...
I love MAC lip pencils. These are an oldie but a goodie for me. The pencils are much longer than my other ones, so extra product & these last me a long time. They go on so nicely, & I can get into the corners and other tough areas perfectly with great precision. They come in so many colors. I love pairing Boldly Bare with Velvet Teddy or whatever lipstick. I just love these. Great lip pencil.

Review for: Whirl, In Synch more...
Best lip pencils! They are the perfect combination of creamy and hard. They go on smoothly, but not too smooth. They don’t break off the minute you apply more pressure. Whirl is my perfect shade, I use it with almost all my nude and pink lipsticks. I have back ups because it’s just so perfect. The best formula for a lip pencil and I suggest MAC Lip Pencils to anyone looking for a good one!

These pencils are by far my favorite. Wonderful color payoff and a wide variety of shades. I love to fill in my whole lip with them before applying lipstick for an intense color and long wear. Wish they could be correctly sharpened with any sharpener though. The price is a bit high for me, but worth the money for staple shades and the deep shades you can't find anywhere else.
