Like most of the other people who have written reviews on this product, I love the colour. However, 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.
Great product but please can it be made as a twist up lipstick

Does it last?
Ease of Use
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.
