NOT sure why i Waited to $pend on this!
SHADE NAMEBespoken For
Tags +Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
I waitied a while to spend on this pencil b/c the price to me is just a bit much, ($20)especially since it's NOT retractable. However I had a little extra cash and bought it Finally!! I have to say I am very satistifed with it b/c when used with a lipstick I already own it makes it POP!! Makes it exactly how I had wanted the lip color to look. It is a little tricky when putting on if hand is not steady. I don't know why I waited so long to buy. But still feel it should be RETRACTABLE for the price as I have other lip pencils less expensive that are. I will buy one more. Don't like that a sharpener is then $10! That is CRAZY!!

I bought this color as a brown liner I could use until the shade I actually wanted was restocked at my local MAC shop. Wasn't expecting to love it as much as I do! I find it works well with all types of shades, and looks nice on my skin tone (tan). It looks amazing if applied lightly and smudged under the Huggable Lipstick in color Touche. Definitely will be using for years!

Breaking Perfection
Tags +Long wearing
The first day I brought the lip pencil, the tip Broke off the first time I used it. I came to realization that it is nearly impossible for me to sharpen it. I feel as though it is a waste of money.

Need a MAC Small pencil sharpener
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
After reading many of the reviews for this pencil I realized that many people think this is a twist up pencil. It isn't, you need to sharpen this pencil with a small pencil sharpener. It works well with the Mac small sharpener but I have sharpened it with a Chanel sharpener as well. You can get a really nice point once sharpened. I have many colors from Nice N' Spicy to Kiss Me Quick, these are very creamy and amazing to fill in your lips with. Long wearing and true to color. Great with gloss or lipstick.
So girls who threw this in a drawer because you thought it was a twist up. Sharpen that baby and use it. Guarantee you will love it!

For those complaining about sharpening issue and twist not working....
SHADE NAMEMorning Coffee
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color, pigmented
Ok,this is not a mechanical pencil. You need to sharpen it. And yes, you need a special sharpener from Mac for $10. There is a way To sharpen it without the special sharpener, just search on YouTube. This is an amazing product that is so creamy. I like to over line since my lips are like Kylie jenner's pre plastic surgery version. This product enables me to over line so easy and so fast. I was using regular lip pencil from Mac before this and while regular pencil is still creamy, it doesn't compare to pro long. I turned down the the idea of the pro long pencil for so long as it is hard to sharpen without the special sharpener, it is more expensive and it gets you less product compared to the regular pencil.I am glad I finally decided to invest in this. It used to take me 5 min to overdraw, and now it takes 1 min. Super long wearing, and waterproof! I wish there were more color selection though

Not up to par with quality
Tags +Bold Color
I love the color of Mz. Diva but the quality of this product isn't there. The twister does not work so I'm not sure how I'm going to get full use from the pencil. Also, the liner seems to bleed past my lips and makes me look like I have a pink shadow around my mouth. Very disappointed with this product for what we have to pay.

Great Color Poor Material
SHADE NAMETrust in Red
Tags +Long wearing
I love how this color looks on me! I am light-medium skin color and the color looks great with my complexion. The twister on this pencil DOES NOT WORK! I used it maybe 3 times after the tip wore off i was not able to twist it anymore. I thought maybe it only had a short pencil inside and was frustrated with it so i broke it in half! The pencil is as long from the inside as it is from the outside. The twister does not work is poor material and i use the bottom of an eye brush to push the color up. I love the color so much I use it even if its broken in half. I wish they had this color in a lipstick instead.

Lip pencil cannot be adjusted by twisting device. This makes it hard to use once the point has been worn down. I had to take a q-tip to push more of the product forward. I was told by the chat center that this product has been discontinued.

SHADE NAMEAbsolutely It
If I could review this and give zero stars I would. The color was good, however, how can I use it more than once if you cannot sharpen the pencil. I have tried 4 different sharpeners with no luck.
Alas, this pencil is going into the trash. Total waste of money!!!

How does it work
Tags +Color true
I used it 4 times and can't seem to sharpen it or use it anyhow. Total waste of a beautiful lip liner. Now it sits comfortably in my makeup drawer gaining a lot of dust. I wish it came with instructions on how to use it

BRING BACK CREMESTICK LINER
I am so disappointed in this product compared to your Cremestick Liner that was discontinued. Why, oh why did you discontinue such a wonderful product? Cremestick was the best lipliner I have ever used - great creamy smooth colors that stayed in place, easy to operate and self-sharpening. Pro Longwear is such a letdown! I don't like that it doesn't sharpen properly. I don't like the colors. I don't like that it bleeds when Cremestick never did. Is there any chance you will bring back Cremestick? In the meantime I'll be looking for a new lip liner from another company.

Tags +Long wearing, Bold Color
I don't see the big deal, you sharpen it with a good cosmetic sharpener! It's an amazing product best long wear around and the color saturation very nice. Excited and glad they extended the nude shades. Just wish they would be stocked In Macys
stores all the time.

I own these lip pencils in lots of different colors and I absolutely love them. They are smooth, non-drying, long-lasting, and overall fantastic. I wear these sometimes alone, as an outline for a lipstick, or as a base to slightly tweak another color. I love these so much!

Don't. Just don't.
SHADE NAMEStaunchly Stylish
Ive LOVED MAC lip pencils for years!!! Since the duty free shop at the airport was out of SOAR I was talked into this PRO LONGWEAR pencil. Well, after using it a few times I tried to sharpen it. I tried 3 sharpeners and none work. Then I spun the bottom and that didn't work. Then I read online I need a special sharpener? What? I am not going to buy a special sharpener when I've already spent $20 on a pencil. Sure would have been nice if the MAC rep had mentioned this when I bought it. Because I would NOT have bothered to spend the extra money on the PRO. Stick with the regular lip pencils.

HOW TO SHARPEN!
SHADE NAMEMore to Love
Tags +Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
I LOVE this color but at first I was very upset that it wasn't sharpening. As it turns out, the bottom doesn't twist to sharpen. I have noticed many people complaining about it and decided to help out. I used a regular cosmetic sharpener and the plastic peeled right off and I am back to using it and loving it. This shade goes perfectly with "girl about town" and I wear it every day! Smooth application and long lasting. Definitely recommend.
