Love this product!!
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color
I've been reading some of the reviews and realize that the problem users are having is one that I had until I asked a MAC person to help me. The outside of this pencil is a plastic...not wood. It will not sharpen correctly in a regular pencil sharpener. I bought one of the special MAC sharpeners and voila!! It now works perfectly. I'd give this a 5 star if only I'd been told that when I bought it. Really...MAC should advise this whenever the pro pencil is purchased...either online or in person!!!!

Not worth the money
I've been an avid Mac user for nearly five years now, and have never been disappointed by a product until now. I bought this in early May because they were out of Whirl at the store I was at. It crumbles nearly every time I use it and is a pain in the butt to sharpen, and it's nearly gone already. The pencil is way too soft and not worth it at all. I would not recommend the pro longwear lip pencils to anyone, you're better off with the regular lip pencils.

PRO LONG, &Im never going back!
Tags +Bold Color, lip sticks
I will never go back to the normal lip liners. This pro longwear is amazing that i can even wear it to fill in my lips and put on a thin layer of the lip stick on top. But it wont smug or move once its on, the best part is I can eat and drink and not have to reapply over and over again!

AMAZING!!!!
Tags +everyday wear, when you want/need a lip liner to stay for a very, can even be used without lipstick/lipgloss, beautiful colors
I went to my local MAC counter to check these out because I didn't believe that these would work. I bought "Staunchly Stylish" because I wanted one that would match my lip color and be able to be used with most lip colors as my "neutral". I had sampled a bunch on my hand to find the right one before actually applying to my lips and for me this color was PERFECT. It was super creamy compared to others I've tried and was sold when I tried to wipe off off the swatches on my hand and I couldn't! I had to get makeup remover and it still gave me a fight to come off. So as soon as I purchased it I immediately put it on and layered it with some gloss. Even with eating and drinking (the gloss came and went) but this lip liner was there until I took off all my makeup that night. I am going to purchase/stock up on these in case this is a limited edition item--I CANNOT be without this!!! If you are on the fence jump off and BUY THIS!! You won't be sorry!!! :)
To MAC: PLEASE KEEP THESE AS REGULAR ITEMS AND EXPAND COLORS! THESE ARE AMAZING AND ARE DEFINITELY NEEDING TO BE IN A PERMANENT COLLECTION!

Disappointing
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color
I love the old formula pencils, but thought I would try this new version. Although it glides on smoothly, it is so soft that I have to sharpen it after only 2 uses. This is causing the pencil to wear down very quickly. It is already more expensive and shorter than the original pencils, so not a good value at all.

Tags +Non - feathering, Defining, long lasting
I have used M.A.C. lip pencils for many years and have never been disappointed till now. Decided to try the Pro Longwear line. Purchased the color Etcetera...... Love the color, BUT the pencil itself is way too soft. I absolutely hate trying to sharpen it. I have only had it a week and it is almost gone. Every time I go to sharpen it it breaks. Will be returning it.

Creamy and Long Lasting
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color, all over lip colour
The pro-longwear pencils are extremely creamy and very long lasting. I wear them on their own or use them as an all over lip colour. After lipstick wears the liner still stays intact. They don't leave my lips feeling dry pr looking dehydrated. I highly recommend these.

Great color, poor product
I've purchased MAC's regular lip pencils for years and hoped this long wear one would be even better but it's not nearly as good. I'm returning this and ordering the regular ones again. The color is great, but it's softer than the regular pencils, and smaller, and more expensive. Not a good value. It also does not make as crisp of a line on my lips so my lips are less defined than when I use the regular pencils. And it actually doesn't seem to stay on any better than the regular pencils. I'm just disappointed all around with this product. But still a very happy MAC customer otherwise!

Heroine Lip Pencil
Tags +Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color
I love this lip pencil. I was never truly satisfied with the other pencils I bought to use with my Heroine lipstick, so I was excited when MAC made this pencil. Of course, it is perfect with Heroine lipstick. I have also used this pencil with Violetta and Up the Amp. I highly recommend this lip liner pencil for anyone who loves purple lipsticks!

pro longwear lip pencil
Great long-lasting liner just like it says! I have one, but have 2 more ordered because I fell in love with this product!!! I've used many, many different ones over the years & have decided this has to be the best at not feathering/smearing.

Not my favorite
I was excited to try Mac lip liner and I have to say it is not my favorite. The color isn't as vibrant as I thought it would be. I have tried other brands of lip liners (drug store brands) that give me more color and stay on better.

Kiss me Quick
Tags +Non - feathering, Bold Color
I purchased this great liner in Kiss me Quick- a versatile, red that goes with several of my amazing red lipstick shades like Mac Red and Ruby Woo. This liner stayed put, helped my lipstick adhere well, and wasn't all over my glass-or my husband ;)

longwear is the only way to go.
Tags +Bold Color, Non - feathering, Defining, lip color
I really can't see buying anything but longwear lip pencil. I use the longwear pencil along with the prep and prime before and after the pencil; I'm pleased with the result. I wish all the colors were in longwear.

So In Love With Bespoken For!!!
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, lining or filling in of lip
I hope Bespoken For is permanent because I am so in love with it. I was not gonna get it because I was thinking it was too close to NIghtmoth but it is definitely not. I was using Nightmoth with Cyber but this one is sooooo much prettier with Cyber. Its more plummy. Extremely pretty. This is my first ProLongwear pencil and I love how long it lasts on the lips. Today I lined with Bespoken For and patted Cyber along the edge of my lips and mashed together and it was more of a matte look. That look lasted through lunch and was still on after. If you haven't already please make this one a permanent color. Can't wait to try it with my other MAC lipsticks.

Best MAC Liner
Tags +Defining, everyday use as well as special occasions
I purchased this prolong wear in Electrka and it went on very nicely on my lips. i love this liner bc you can wear it alone or with a lipstick or just with some gloss on top. It stayed on for many hours even through me eating drinking, whatever. I would definately tell anyone interested in this product to BUY IT!!!! well worth the money whether you get it at discount price or regular price.

Love!!!
Tags +long lasting lip color
I purchased a couple of these pencils for when I do my bridal clients. I love them! They are so creamy going on and they last really well! Just watch out if you are eating anything that is oily/greasy because then it will come off. Other than that you can eat and drink and it stays put! My favorite color so far is Staunchly Stylish. It is a tiny bit darker than my natural lip color and I feel like I can wear it with anything! Will definitely be purchasing more. I do wish they came in a more variety of shades though. Hint hint :)

I was trying to find a shad that was close enough to my natural lip color, but this wasn't it. Little long wearing, still came off on a cup though.
