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

I love this color for a super dark brown lip!! I use it as a base for dark liquid lipsticks and it's a super long wearing combo.

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.

You just sharpen it! Amazing wear!
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.

Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
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!

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.

How do I sharpen this thing?
Tags +Long wearing
I would have good things to say about this lip pencil if it wasn't for the fact that the tip broke off after the second application and then I realized that it is plastic so I'm guessing sharpening is out of the question. Then I discovered that the bottom spins so I tried to twist it to raise the product, no use... the bottom popped off revealing that it literally does nothing, just spins. If I'm missing something then I'm sorry, but this is a waste of money if all you get is the product you can see...

Bespoken For , Love This Color!
SHADE NAMEBespoken For
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
I am a little surprised by the negative reviews on this one. I see some are saying it doesn't apply well, the color is too dark, and it's hard to sharpen.
Wow, my take on it is completely opposite. I love Nightmoth but I needed something less red,deeper, darker berry for my darker lip colors and this is it. I think I haven't had problems with applying maybe because I always use the Mac Prep and Prime for lips as my base. It glides on easy, smooth and stays put. The times I have used it without Prep and Prime I have found it drag and be a bit patchier but still not a deal breaker for me. I pair Bespoken For with Cyber, but my favorite is Instigator. Those two together are like peanut butter and jelly. It's a perfect liner for the darkest MAC shades or even deepening a lighter shade. I am always being asked what I am wearing on my lips. Maybe it the matte formula of Instigator that helps the pencil stay put, but it lasts for me. Whatever it is , I'm all in MAC so keep them coming.

SHADE NAMEBespoken For
Tags +Long wearing
I like it because it does last for a while on your lips. I guess it depends on what your eating. You do have to sharpen it with a sharpener that is for this type of pencil. It is part wood and metal and a regular pencil sharpener will not sharpen it. I believe MAC sell it.

I did not like the color, it runs off the feeling of it is not good. The color does not match the pencil. Too dark of a pigment.

CONFUSED HELP ME
Tags +Creamy
This is my first time purchasing a lip liner and I went to my local MAC store and they suggested the shade "oh, Honey!" which is a pink warm nude color. (was not even an option for me to select in the shades when i was about to write the review. I don't know why...) and i am so confused with it! The one I have, idk if its supposed to be like this..I cant get it to go any more up than what it is at when i first got it. Like does it only come with the tip part? someone help me im so confused! because if it only comes with the tip part, it is NOT worth $20.I tried twisting the bottom and that didn't work so if anyone can help me please do..

Doesnt wear well
Tags +Long wearing
Got this for my wedding and i don't like it at all. the color starts to crumble off your lips and it looks gross. The people at MAC recommended is with Pro longwear lip colour but it doesn't make it better. I did learn that pairing it with burt's bees chapstick keeps it from crumbling.

Tags +Long wearing
Love the color and the long-wear qualities of this product. However it seems that I have to "sharpen" it pretty much every other time I use it. I love MAC products and am willing to pay a higher price because of the quality, therefore it should also mean that the products should last longer than something I would buy at Walmart.
