I bought the product in the colour Designer Blossom. It looks like a nice red colour in the tube, and when you swatch it. BUT! In a couple of hours, as it dries, the colour changes from a nice sheer red to Barbie-pink! The product is great, but I can't really recommend a product that changes this much when worn.
I have no problem sharpening the pen using my sharpener from Sephora. But it leaves a mess in the sharpener, and it takes a bit of cleaning before I can use it for other products.
Also the pen has to be sharpened after 3 or 4 uses, which is quite often in my view.
I like lip pens in general, but this one is a complete waste of money. At almost £7.00 I would expect some kind of propelling motion to get all the colour out of the tube. The word "Giant " should be removed because after using the tip of the stick....that's it! The colour ( Vibrant Pink) is the only goodish thing I can think of positively about my purchase of this product. I won't be buying again.
After struggling with the wrapping on the pencil and as a
result of which managed to break the tip off, now discover
the pencil does not turn up like other lip pencils I,ve used
and trying to use a sharpener which just made a complete
mess therefore wasted £6.99 on a product that's useless.
Extremely disappointing product - I would not recommend.

Does it last?
Ease of Use
I totally agree with all the comments previously posted.
As one reviewer puts it - "once you have used up the existing tip, it is almost impossible to get any more product out of the pencil. Sharpening it just makes makes a huge mess and chips away at the plastic coating. Very disappointing" - Exactly my experience and very messy.
There is no explanation on the product as to how to extract the rest of the lip-stick.
Sadly - I will not be purchasing this product again or recommending to a friend which is a real shame as the colour and texture are very good.
I bought subtle coral and I liked that colour a lot! It was easy to aply and match with my lips. But problem is that I can't sharp it! Do it need a special sharper? Otherwise it would be perfect.
