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 :( !!!!!
I have the Passionate Red and always get compliments when I wear it. I was expecting to be able to twist up the pencil but it works really well if you freeze it for half an hour then use a proper cosmetics sharpener to sharpen it. The colour lasts for ages and ages, even through eating with minimal top up. It lasted a whole hen do with just 2 top ups! It's very moisturising too as my lips tend to really dry out with most lipsticks.
Overall, I'd recommend for staying power and colour but buy a decent sharpener at the same time.
A lovely colour, goes on beautifully, great for old ladies' lips BUT misleading packaging. After struggling for 10 mins to turn the bottom and push it up I Googled it to find it needs sharpening and now it sounds as though that won't be very successful. I expect better from MF
