The best lip liner ever!! What more can I say??
Amazing texture, fnish, color. Applies like a dream , so creamy, long lasting and the blue undertones make your teeth whiter... Moreover, the color is not another boring red, but cherry. To my way of thinking, this lip pencil is the best of the lot and would definitely repurchase it :)
Just a really great lip pencil. Great as a base for red lipsticks of all shades and tints. Love to pair it with a high shine red gloss for super juicy, sexy lips or a matte lipstick for an old hollywood vibe.
It is very vibrant and has a lot of pigment. You can even use this as a lip color alone. It sharpens easy and is not streaky or overly drying (like some lip pencils). It last for years. I have had mine for so long I am embarrassed to even say how long I think it has been in my collection, but it seriously works like the day I bought it.
Wonderful little item to have in your arsenal. :)
Glides on smoothly, the only downside is that it smudges quite easily- You can wear this liner on its own blended in with a bit of lipgloss/lipbalm, or you can wear it underneath your lippie (which is what I usually do) I am very happy with this lip pencil.
This is my favourite lipliner to use underneath red lipstick. It's creamy and glides on smoothly and has a great staying power.
It really intensifies the colour of the lipstick as well and makes it last longer.
This review is for Cherry not as a lip liner but as a EYEBROW PENCIL!
I have had bright red/pink (cherry) hair for years. The colour I use on my hair is Cherry Bomb by Special Effects, and this liner matches that colour perfectly.
Let's say I put this on my eyebrows at 11 am, went to my central station to take a train to my neighbour country, walked around, then walked 3 miles to a concert where it was very hot and a lot of sweating for 3 hours, walked 3 miles in heavy rain and wind, took the train home, walked 1 mile in heavy rain, came home at 2 am and then looked myself in the mirror. No fading, no smudging. Good stuff.
You only need a one stroke to achieve a strong colour, "true to pan" or what to say about a liner :) This is not even close to dry but not too creamy so it won't smudge or anything like that.
I will continue to buy this as long as MAC continues to make it.
It glides so smoothly on the lips but when you put the cap back on it gets so dry . Next time I want to use it not comes out unless i put pressure to it, so I have to sharpen it every time I need it , the color it beautiful
I pair this with Ruby Woo, perfect red-blue toned lip! That's all I have to say! Stays on for such a long time. :) Will keep repurchasing!
MAC lip liners are overall, some of the best out there. I wanted to love this, as I agree with most of the positive reviews. However, on me, I think it is too bright! I got the satin MAC Red lipstick to go with it & on me, it is just too bright! I am trying to decide if it is the pencil or the lipstick-or both. So, right now, I am on the fence. I agree that it can be worn on its own and look fabulous. It is excellent in texture & pigmentation. It is expensive for my taste, but it would last me forever, if I were to keep it because I would not be using red lips everyday. So, I shall update. But overall, for many persons, it will be a winner! Update-I think NYX lip liners are better than MAC, & less $$. I picked up plum by NYX, which is not plum at al,l but a burgundy red-with pink-& it is better, imo, than this or Half Red. The automatic no sharpen one is the NYX lip pencil that will now be a staple for me!!
Cherry is a true blue red lip liner that goes well with medium toned red lipsticks and lipglosses. Russian Red and Ruby woo look great with this color. To me it has a true vintage red hue and it acts as a great base to strong colors to make them go on consistently and stay on longer.
I dont wear a red lip very often but when I do I will always reach for my cherry lip liner. I have uneven shaped lips and without this liner I couldn't actually wear red lipstick. I use it all over my lips rather than an outline. I then apply my lipstick on top. I have paired this lip liner with Russian Red, Ruby Woo and Hot Tahiti and it looks good under all three. It's the perfect colour. My only tip would be to make sure it's very sharp to get the crisp lip line you're after. The perfect lip liner. X
