I'm on the lower maintenance side when it comes to makeup. Never wore lip liner until recently when I realized that some of my glosses/lipsticks were feathering a bit at the edges of my lips. The idea of finding matching, unnoticeable lip liners for all of my favorite (but problematic) lipsticks/glosses really had me worrying.
Came across Lipstick Queen's Invisible Liner and now I'm totally happy (and worry free). This liner does a great job (for me) doing exactly what I was hoping it would do. Kept my problematic lipsticks/glosses from running or feathering at the edges of my lips.
Product felt a bit waxy, but it didn't make me break out and did what I was hoping it would do, so I don't see the waxiness as a bad thing. I loved the fact that because it's clear I can just throw it on and not worry about it being perfect. Who cares if its a little outside of the lips or a little inside!
I was pretty disappointed in the amount of product for the price, but I have to say it lasted way longer than I expected. I don't use it everyday, but I do use it pretty regularly. It lasted about a year.
I did have some issues with the twist up part. It seemed like I had to put pressure on it while twisting up to get the product to actually twist up. Weird, but it worked for once I figured out "the trick"

I use this under my glosses, as I use another product under my lipsticks. It works well, but it's very thin and a bit waxy. Maybe if it were more a like a chubby lipstick I'd love it more.

I guess this works on the same principle that those waxy crayons in Easter egg coloring kits do- lay down a layer of wax and color will stay back from the line you drew. Unfortunately this liner works just about as well as those waxy crayons which is to say not very well- it keeps color at bay but leaves little clumps of waxy residue in its path.
I was hoping to get one liner to work with my darker lipsticks. This is clearly not the answer.
The packaging is horrible and cheap looking . I accidentally rolled my liner a bit too much up and could not get it to retract. This was only the second time I used it. And they get $19 for this?
This was my introduction to LQ. I don't think we will meet again.

proximitythe53rd already wrote an excellent review that sums it up quite well; however, I am not quite as in love with this liner as she is.
PRO 1: The tip is ultra thin, so you can draw a very precise invisible line. Ever try to line your lips using DuWop's Reverse Liner? It's like trying to use brute force.
PRO 2: This pencil truly is invisible, unlike CARGO's Reverse Liner, which is flesh/peach colored and then has to be blended into the surrounding skin or you risk looking like a crazed disco queen meets Woodsy the Owl.
CON: Lipstick Queen's invisible liner is too slick for me, too many 'cones. It feels less like the product is forming a very fine berm at the edges of my lips than sort of smearing around. It did a fair job at holding back my sheer lipsticks and gloss (not that I really need liners for those), but it failed with my most deeply-pigmented red lipstick: Julie Hewett Rouge Noir.
I said I would not buy again, and that is true. I really wanted to love this lip pencil, but I have better luck with the drier, firmer, waxier pencils that match my lip tone exactly, like MAC Soar.

The easiest review would just say: "it does what it says on the tin".
This is a clear lip-liner. It's invisible on my lip line, or just outside it. It keeps lipstick or gloss in its place. Application is super-easy, and fool-proof (since it's invisible, who cares if you get it a bit outside the line).
It works with whatever lip color your choose.
It doesn't feel like anything when it's on. You can use it before or after adding lipstick (but if you use it after, you might get a bit of the lip color on the liner).
This is a "mechanical" liner, it twists up, you don't need to sharpen it. This is awesome for me, because I just hate having to sharpen liners (and then clean the gunk off my sharpener).
The packaging is good, but fairly simple. The outside is black plastic, with the Lipstick Queen logo and "Invisible Lip Liner" written on it. The pencil is quite slim, rather than chunky. Though it's small, you do get a good amount of product because it just doesn't get used up very quickly at all. The slimness makes it easy to apply precisely (though that's not really necessary with an invisible product).
