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.

Love the "subtle coral" shade but what a pain having to keep sharpening it all the time and the gunk it leaves behind in the sharpener! Plus had to buy a new sharpener as the holes in existing sharpener too small.

I wish I'd read the reviews for this product before parting with any money. I loved the Passionate Red shade and how well it lasted throughout a day, BUT once you have worn down the lip pencil there is absolutely no way to sharpen it, and believe me, I've tried lots of ways without success. Had I have known this product would have had such a limited use I would never have brought it.

This lipstick was my first disappointment with Max Factor. I paid almost £7.00 for a product I can only use for a very limited time. Colour was great Designer Blossom. In this day and age, we are looking for nice products with value for money...this is not one of them...

Couldn't believe that once I had used up the point that was on view that there was no easy way of getting more lipstick - so very unhappy that I had paid for a lipstick that only lasted a couple of weeks. Thought it would be propellant but it was only when I actually had used the tip that was showing did I realise that it wasn;t!! Bad design

I really love this lip pen, the colour is amazing and it really does last all day. BUT it's impossible to sharpen being made of plastic !!! I bought a large pencil sharpener as this was recommended to me but all it does is hack away at the pen and gloss, this makes it very difficult to apply as the rough edges scratch your lips. I would highly recommend having a compartment at the end that you can twist and more lip stick comes up, like the revlon lipstick this would be so much more convenient. I feel very let down by max factor as I expected a lot more.

Like many of the other reviews, I found this product messy to use, sticky and definitely not long lasting. Not good value for money, the tip fell off straight away and trying to sharpen it was a disaster. £7 for one application - total waste of money.

What a disappointment. Lovely colour and consistency but the fact that this needs to be sharpened is a major design flaw. Clinique do a similar product that propels and is far better.
