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
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.
I absolutely love the Vibrant Pink colour but I am really disappointed that it was such a waste of money £6.99. Really need to reassess the packaging, I thought it would twist or sharpen but NO!
