Top tips for how to apply
  • 1

    Apply Giant Pen Stick directly onto the lips – there’s no need to use a lip liner first – you get it all-in-one.
  • 2

    The pigment is really strong, and it glides on, so there is no need to go over the lips repeatedly – just sweep the colour across.
  • 3

    When the end is slightly softer, blend it on for a dewy look, or create total definition by sharpening the end to a fine point.

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.

Why can't they make it a 'twist and push'?

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 :( !!!!!
