Stone is back?!?!?! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, makes lips appear fuller and more natural
I came on the site today to reorder a lipstick that had run low, and decided to check my "Favorites" list to see if there was anything there that I needed. And lo and behold an old friend reappeared - Stone lip pencil. I thought I must be seeing things. But no, it's there. And it's not marked as a limited edition.
Since it was discontinued several years ago, I've searched high and low for a replacement. But nothing was ever quite right. For the last year I had to use an EYE LINER to try and copy the color. Yes, an eye liner. I became desperate.
This was the perfect color for me to line my lips. It magically seemed to make my lips seem fuller (probably since it seems to almost mimics a very light shadow - thus giving the allusion of fuller lips). It also tones down brighter shades and turns pinks and nudes into colors that seem natural, healthy and beautiful. Some people may be turned off because it is described as grey muted taupe. But it is a truly natural looking color. Just not as yellow or orange as most "natural" or "beige" liners tend to be.
I ordered the maximum number that I was allowed with the largest smile on my face. PLEASE, PLEASE NEVER DISCONTINUE THIS AGAIN.

MAC has the best color selection of most things, especially lip pencils.
I LOVE Soar and Whirl even before Kylie Jenner, SO DONT DISCONTINUE IT! Keep em coming!!
I also love Oak, Stripdown, and Cork! The staying power for all of these is pretty great, and they are all so beautiful!

Best liner ever
Tags +Non - feathering, Defining
Vino is my favorite lip liner of all time! I initially used it to tone down my mac red lipstick for my NW45 skin tone. Now I use it to add dimension to various matte lipsticks and to help my lip color last longer. I also own it in cork, chestnut, & currant but vino is always my go-to. I've tried to find cheaper dupes but none of them can compare in color payoff, consistency, & longevity. Awesome lip pencil!

Excellent lip pencil !
Tags +Bold Color, Defining
I bought this lip pencil in Whirl and Spice. I have never tried mac lip pencils before and was a bit skeptical at first. But I decided to purchase them the other day and these pencils are seriously amazing. They glide on smoothly and last quite long. They need to be reapplied every five hours if used without primers. They fade away evenly and do not leave off streaky. Keep in mind that they are matte finish and are drying- but nothing a good lip balm cannot fix. I am very impressed with these lip pencils. For anyone who's interested, Spice is more of a dark brownish pink color while whirl is a medium brown. Love them!

Obsessed with Dervish
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, everyday use special occasions
Apparently the nude lip thing is very in right now, thanks to Kylie Jenner, so many of the standard rosy-nude shades were sold out. I got some help from the sales associate looking for an alternative to Spice, which is too brown for my lips (they're naturally a bit more rosy-colored). She showed me Dervish and it's perfect! Almost exactly matches the color of my lips. I could wear it plain but I needed it to layer under stronger colors to act as a base. I did just that with Ruby Woo lipstick for NYE and it lasted all night! Dervish is not part of my daily makeup rotation. Great consistency and color, easy to apply, love it.

I Love It!
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, Bold Color, lining and shading the lips
There are many MAC lip pencils that deserve recognition on this site, but I have to speak on the Cherry lip liner. Cherry is a very versatile red pencil that can be used with just about all the MAC red colored lipsticks. Being a red lipstick hound, I have tried just about every red lipstick and red lip liner pencil combination there is. I always come back to Cherry. I forgot my lipstick in another purse one time and used my Cherry lip pencil to cover my entire lip area and almost every woman in the room wanted to know what brand/shade of red lipstick was I wearing. They were shocked to know that a lip liner pencil packed that much of a punch in color payoff. If you love the classic red lips like I do, get a Cherry lip pencil to help make your lips pop!

Tags +Non - feathering, Defining
I got the half red, and it goes on easily and the color is great for me since I have darker lips. It blends well with whatever shade of lipstick I use and does well defining my lips. I also have Mahogany which is a deeper red, makes any color more intense.

My one and Only Lip Pencil

Love it!! There is no other lip pencil in the market for me like my Vino. It is simply beautiful and long lasting. I even use it all over my lips with a lip gloss on top.

I've used these lip liners for years! WAY before Kylie Jenner. I bought Soar because my all time favorite Whirl is sold out. It's a nice color...BUT please get whirl back in stock.

I usually don't put anything on my lips. I love the lip pencils, I can just apply and wear them without applying anything on top!

Lovely, Long Lasting, The Perfect Liner
This is my favorite lip pencil, I have whirl, soar, and will soon have boldly bare when it is delivered today. The liner is very easy to apply, and glides on smooth. These colors are so versatile, and you can play them up or down. With pressure you can achieve a bold line or soft focus. Each pencil matches multiple MAC lipsticks and glosses, it just depends on how you feel about color each day! If you are thinking about purchasing one of these pencils, DEFINITELY do so, you will be pleased!
Beautiful Day-

Lip Pencil in "Stone"
Tags +Precision Tip, Non - feathering, Defining, making lips appear larger, contouring and shading of lips, neutralizing certain shades of lipstick, all over lip color
Stone color is exactly as described, a muted grayish taupe brown with a tiny hint of purple to neutralize reds, it mimics the exact shade of the shadow my lips cast so it's very easy to make them appear larger if lined properly and subtly (I have a light beige complexion)
This color can be dark and intense or subtle and light depending on the intensity of application and whether you apply it on very dry lips or slightly moisturized by a lip conditioner.
Stone is a perfect liner shade for the lipgloss color Spite.
One of my favorite ways to use it is by carefully contouring and shading the corners of my lips after I've applied Mac lip conditioner.. a super quick and natural looking trick that will make your lips look plump and sexy.
This is the first time I find a perfectly muted neutral shade for my lips that doesn't scream redish or orangy tones! it even looks great all over the lip as a matte lipstick, what more can you ask from a lip liner?
Please never discontinue this multitasking beautiful shade! such a shame is not sold in stores.

Not bad, but...
SHADE NAME: Chestnut
Tags +Color true, Long wearing
I ordered this product because a MAC specialist recommended it as the comparable item to my favorite Cremestick retractable liner color which was discontinued. I don't mind this product, but now I have to deal with carrying an extra item in my makeup back (a sharpener) and the constant mess of pencil shavings. The texture is also a little drier so it doesn't apply as smoothly as the Cremestick retractible liner which was creamier and so much easier to use.

Love the lip pencil. I think it is a perfect nude look and a matte finished. I love it because it blends with my natural lip color and it defines my lips.
