  • "Love this product! It is long lasting and Affordable. I would recommend it to anyone." in 89 reviews
  • "Nice amount of Pigmentation. I prefer matte over glossy but I will switch over for this pencil. Feels really nice on my lips. It's not drying at all. Very Moisturizing. Would buy again and highly recommend. Only thing is the moisture wears off for me after about 1-2 hours. For the price I'd expect it to not dry that fast but Overall this is a good product.

I actually received this product for free one time I was ordering  from MAC online. I didn't expect much of it but I've actually have been using this for a while now and it only occurred to me today to write a review about it. I keep this at my work desk and use it basically everyday during the week. I like that it gives color and life to my face. I also like that it feels hydrating as well.

Review for: RUBY, French Kiss more...
I really love these colors and the texture of this product. They are very moisturizing and I think they look flattering on. I do wish the application would last a little longer than it does, however, I do still enjoy it. Since the application does not last too long, I do wish it was a little bit cheaper because I find myself applying more frequently.

Review for: CLEVER more...
I was utilizing MAC's empty return policy where if you return six empty containers you get a free gift. My free gift was the Patentpolish Lip Pencil and WOW, not what I was expecting from a product labeled "pencil." 

I have the shade Clever and it's the perfect pink nude that has some brown in it. It's almost a cross between a gloss and a lipstick. It's really comfortable on the lips and adds a tint of color to dress up your look.

The packaging is typical for MAC - black plastic with metallic lettering. It works like a lipstick and has an applicator that you twist to reveal product - WAY better than the ones you have to sharpen. 

It's pretty, practical, and I want to get more shades.

Review for: SULTANA, REVVED UP, INNOCENT, Other more...
Love this formula. I got a set of 4 for a decent price. Innocent is a very nice light nude color but it would not work for people with darker skin tones. Revved up is very nice pinky color which will work for a lot of skin tones but I’m not sure if it will work on darker skin tones (I’d love to know if it does) those two are my favorite colors. Mojo-maker is a nice cool tone nude will probably work for any skin tone. Sultana is a nice berry tone color but it’s not the most even shade. It would for sure work for any skin tone and will look beautiful on darker skin tones.

Review for: SULTANA more...
This color is beautiful and it’s give out more shine. Patentpolish Lip pencil is cool. Usually when I go to MAC store I always get a lip pencil with my lipstick and I do try the products in the store to decide do I want this color? Or Do I need to get this color without the lip pencil. 🤔🤔🤔🤔 Try it out and see for yourself🙂

I got a crayon from mac one time a couple years ago when I knew no much about makeup and I has a gift card so I wanted to try it out, and let me tell you changed my life. I absolutely love these crayons, they work great and wow the pigmentation is real

I have this in pretty please and let me just say this is the best lip polish! The color is just perfect baby pinkish peachish nude! The formula is slick, and hydrating ! So if your lips are chapped, you could essentially use this as a tinted, colored chapstick. The longevity of wear is not that great, but it is average among the cream lipstick type family.

So instead of spending a lot on a chapstick, invest in this and it will be dual purpose! Color and hydration ! It's reasonably priced for the amount of product you get and it can last months!

Love this lippie by MAC. The color is Clever and it is fabulous on this fair redhead! It gives you just enough shine without being sticky. It's not quite a lipstick but not quite as a gloss. So unique and different. Love it!!!! M.A.C Cosmetics Patentpolish Lip Pencil

Review for: Look Lively more...
Silky and smooth! This lip pencil is very pigmented, and goes on with a very smooth finish. My only con is that it does have a wider tip which makes application a little sloppy if not done with patience.

I have very mixed feelings about this pencil! While I love the sheer, glossy finish, I can say it isn't very lasting. I wore this on a night out and realized it was completely gone after about an hour, even though I put a liner on underneath. I do recommend this shade for someone looking for a "natural with a twist" sort of look as it definitely pops on the lips.
