It takes a lot for me to like a lip pencil, I'm old enough without having to worry that a pencil is going to give me prune lips and make them peel! I love this pencil, I bought several of these in various colors and they are so smooth and creamy! They are almost like a firm lip gloss, they are so smooth. Love them! This one is a pink/tan, looks great on my pasty whiteness and doesn't enhance the redness!
Finally, a sheer lip pencil that actually works! Every single sheer lip liner I've tried so far has been too wimpy and by that I mean they were creamier than regular lip liners and so did nothing to keep gloss/lipstick from migrating. Staying power is lousy at best. Smashing Glossy is a mauvey plum color with excellent staying power. Much as I love this, I just can't swallow paying $14 for a lip pencil.
