I love love this dusky rose colour of this smooth creamy pencil from Mac. I use this pencil underneath any lipstick and it doesnt change the colour of the lipstick. It also prevents lipstick from bleeding and if worn alone it looks like pinkish brown flush on your lips, perfect for everyday wear. You can build the colour as it is very pigmented and it does not settle into lines and fades away easily! Staying power is quite decent! I know this lip pencil is on the expensive side but the pencil is long which will last you quite longer! I will give this 3 stars as i have used more smooth pencil lines.

This lip pencil from MAC I said very warm toned brick red coloured lip pencil .It is a beautiful colour which will work across many skin tones and just brightens up my face. The texture of this pencil is very smooth and creamy and just glides onto my lips unlike the other lip pencil so I have tried from this line.It feels very moisturising too which I find quite surprising for a lip pencil and does not accentuate the fine lines or dry patches on my lips .It does fade after 2-3 hours from the center of the lips and fades away evenly .It can be used alone or under a lipstick or a gloss. Makes for a great lipstick too !
The lip pencil comes in a matte black packaging. The pencil itself is wooden and has a black plastic cap. It is not a retractable pencil so it needs to be sharpened. I personally have no issue with that because it means that you can get a sharp tip everytime. But that also means that some of the product is wasted each time which might be a problem for some. The thickness of the pencil is pretty average and you can use any good eye/lip pencil sharpener available in the market for this purpose. I use a Colorbar one. The length, however, is on the longer side of an average lip pencil.
Coming onto the texture, it is quite soft in the sense that it goes pretty smoothly on your lips and does not tug on them at all. However it isn’t crumbly soft either. When worn by itself, it feels quite comfortable on the lips and does not dry the lips any further. Because of this, it can be layered underneath a lipstick or worn alone by itself too. As a lip pencil, you can pair it with your nude and light pink lipsticks to create a gradient effect. I get an average wear time of about 4-5 hours with mild drinks in between. If you have a full meal with this on, it is going to wear off
They are really nice and glides on very smooth but i feel they are a bit expensive....1800 for a lip pencil...i feel its too much.I bought the shade Whirl, So dupe for this is colorbar lip pencil or NYX lip pencil. this mac one is very creamy not at all dry on the lips and its your wish to apply a lipstick on top or not, I personally apply lipstick on top to make it last all day long. you can apply any liquid lipstick or normal lipstick. I apply mac or any other liquid lipstick.

This is great warm brown shade of lip pencil .It can be used on its own or under a lipstick.Either ways it is very pigmented ,long lasting and very creamy.
I have loads of these pencils, to layer underneath my lipstick.The pigmentation etc they provide is very good .Only problem is that you have to keep sharpening the tip and also it breaks easily(the tip),and you end up wasting a lot of products
