So, finally I took a long , thin handled spoon and scooped out the lipstick and put it into a little pot. I love the colour and moisturising quality, hate the pen stick . I shall use a lipstick brush to apply it. Would I buy it again? Not sure at present.
I haven't had mine long but I was super impressed at how easy it was to apply and also how long the colour lasted, my first test survived, tea soup and a cup of tea and still looked fresh! I read all of the reviews about sharpening and I think a lot of people are not being fair and expecting an ordinary pencil to sharpen itself.....think people..... However, one review suggested freezing the pencil for half an hour before sharpening with a cosmetics sharpener (which we should all have to be fair) I can see this being really useful as the pencil is very soft which just helps it go on better.
Great long lasting colour, but 'sharpening' is ridiculously awkward, messy and doesn't really work. I don't have time to freeze it for half an hour beforehand to make sharpening easier - why can't they just make it a 'twist and push' slender lipstick - which, like me, is probably what most people think it is when they buy it?
I disagree with other reviews I have been able to sharpen my lipstick pencil you just need to buy a particular sharpener for it that just cost £3. It's easy to use and the colour lasts well. I have just ordered another one.
I purchased the coral colour which is a lovely colour on but the pencil broke with first use, I wasn't impressed will not buy again!!
Disappointing as a life time user of Max factor products its not what I expect.
I bought this lip pencil as the colour looked really nice, but when I tried it out the lipstick just collapsed so I sharpened it and the same happened again, just a load of gunge so not worth wasting money on it or your boots points which I did :( !!!!!
The colour is thin and frustrated to,find it is not a twist up design for further use.
