Wonderful liner, Hardly any color options.
Tags +Bold Color, Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, precision lining with staying power
I absolutely love this liner, it is by far my favorite MAC lipliner formula, it's twist up application makes it convenient, it is creamy and easy to apply, and it NEVER feathers! I mean never! Even though I love the other mac lipliner type called "Lip pencil" , it can sometimes feather along with the lipstick, which is unfortunate. However, I find myself only purchasing the "lip pencil" formula because I can only get the colors that I want in that formula, colors like Boldly Bare, Chicory, Dervish, and Redd are not available in this cremestick formula. And not only are they not available, it seems that unless you want a dark liner with a heavy brown/plum undertone to it, there are no colors for you, except summerfruit, which is pretty, and really the only true peachy option in this liner. When MAC discontinued the cremestick pearl lipliners a few years ago, they never really replaced those shades with anything in this or any other type of lipliner, which is very disappointing. Anyway.. overall, I love this formula, but there REALLY needs to be more color options!

Ideal Lip Pencil
Tags +Bold Color, Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining
Absolutely my favorite lip liner! It is creamy, long-lasting/wearing, and contrary to popular belief it does last long, so it IS worth the money! Another thing that keeps me running back to buy this is also the fact that it counts as a recyclable! The other wooden pencil does not, so keep that in mind... Must-have colors are: Pink Treat & Beurre. I'm going to buy and try Sublime Culture next because I think it'll be a great nude liner. (I'm an NC35-NC40.) Try one and become a fan too!

What an amazing formula!
Tags +Bold Color, Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, lining filling in and base.
This is the best lip liner EVER. It applies smoothly, doesn't skip, feather or crumble on your lips. It lasts all day, as a lipstick. Please MAC use this formula and make it a jumbo lip crayon or lipstick.

My All Time Favorite/Where is it?
Tags +Color true, Long wearing
This is my absolute favorite lip liner! Not only in the MAC brand and colors but of all the other lip liners I have tried. It is creamy but doesn't smear. I find it to be matte like in appearance but not drying. The color is absolutely perfect for using with my MAC lipsticks. I would love to have a matte MAC lipstick in this shade. My only complaint is not actually with the product but the fact that it never seems to be in stock locally or on-line. Maybe that is just a sign of a great product being in high demand. Thank you MAC and please make more of this wonderful shade.

Best lip pencil
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining
I have Pink Treat, a perfect match for my mauvish pigmented lips. Unlike Soar, Pink Treat has no noticeable brown, and it is cool toned. I have no idea how MAC made the formula so it's both bulletproof and moisturizing, but they did, and it's great. If I apply to only the vermilion border, even the goopiest lip gloss stays inside without migrating. If I line and completely fill in my lips with this pencil, whatever I put on top stays on all day with only a little fading. Highly recommended.

Retractable Cremestick Liner
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color
I love that this lip liner is retractable! No wasted product trying to sharpen a pencil, this liner rolls up and back like a dream. And of course, it's MAC, so the product itself is wonderful. The liner goes on very smooth, is absolutely blendable and long-lasting. 5 stars for sure!

Wish they made more colors!
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color
These are my favorite of all lip liners. They go on smooth and the color lasts. Sometimes I just cover my lips with the liner and add a touch of MAC tinted lip balm and I am good to go. I'm not giving the full five rating because the retracting mechanism on two liners that I purchased were broken; the stick of color slid completely out of the casing. But I am a devout MAC girl, so I will not stop buying this product.

great but overpriced
Tags +Bold Color, overpriced
I got this in the color Red Enriched and I think it is a beautiful brick red color that wears very nicely on its own. However you only get 0.25g of product for $16 which I think is ridiculous. If you like to wear it on its own, like I do, you may only get 15 uses out of it before its gone! For the same price you could get a mac lipstick which is 12 times as much product. As much as I love the color, I won't be repurchasing.

GREAT PRODUCT
Tags +Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color
I own a few shades of this and they are amazing! I wear the colors by themselves and they last all day. I can eat and drink and the color will not budge. It has a great matte finish that I can't find in any other product except the lime crime velvetines. Definitely worth the cost.

Creamy, pigmented
Tags +Bold Color, filling lips before application of lipstick
These lip liners are amazing- pigmented, creamy, easy to use (winds up instead of needing a sharpener). Personally, I don't use this product just to line the lips because I find the point isn't fine enough to make a sharp line around lip edges. I use this product to fill in my entire lips before lipstick or gloss.
The liners also break very easily, so I suggest only winding the product up a teeny bit over the applicator pen's top. The consistency of product = thick creamy. I own - buerre, sublime culture and creamola. They are very long lasting and gorgeous pigmentation.

Cremestick liner
Tags +Defining, Lining
The cremestick liner glides on very easily and smoothly. The color I used (cream o'spice) was great and complimented the lipstick perfectly (Velvet Teddy). Unfortunately, the liner lasted less than a month which was very disappointing, not to mention expensive. I expected the liner to last longer (or just as long) as the less expensive, drug store liners I have purchased in the past.

What a shame you got rid of Cremestick Cremola. Thats the only one you had that is closest to a nude color.I love MAC but this was a big mistake.

Shade Not So Bold
Tags +Non - feathering, very good to prevent feathering. if you like buy!
The only reason I was attracted to this pencil was because I was looking for a pencil that didn't feather and I found so convenient that you didn't need to sharpen it. When I saw the variety of colors I was not so impressed because the selection is very limited and the red is not so bold. Especially when I am trying to mat it to ruby woo. As soon as it finishes I will not repurchase. You can sharpen so the definition is not so sharp, so your precision is not so good. Colors are all kind of dark.

Cremestick Liners
Tags +Bold Color, Non - feathering, Defining, longer wearing
Cremestick Liners are the most long lasting lip pencils out there because of their texture which holds down the lipstick and anchors it a lot longer than with a regular pencil. I recommend them.
I have been through about four Beurre Cremestick Liners and two Creamola Cremestick Liners I believe?

Tags +Defining, everyday
I love the cremestick lip liners...They are fabulous....I wish when they discontinue a color they would replace it. There were once 10 to choose from... I have fallen in love with 2 colors - and slowly they discontinue my favorites. Goodbye Creamola and Sultry. You will be missed.

Totally happy
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering
The first MAC cremestick line I purchased was Pink Treat. It was the perfect shade for my lipstick. I love the consistancy and it has lasted FOREVER. I've had it for almost five months now...and while it's still okay, I'm ordering another one because I don't want to run out.

I was never much on lip liners until....
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, everyday, long wear pouty lips
I've never been overly impressed by lip liners I have used in the past. Never enough for a repurchase or even to continue using long after I have by them. However, I really am impressed with this liner, it doesn't bleed into your makeup around your lips and stays put giving a long lasting pouty lip. I will purchase this lip liner again, it is a nude color so it works with all of my various lip colors!
