I can't believe this product doesn't get more attention. It's by far the best lip pencil I've used. It's kind of a nude/rose color that is neutral and blends with pretty much all of my lipsticks. I am NC15 and I use this almost every day. It is very smooth, easy to sharpen and applies very evenly. It holds a point well and has never broken. I have very little lip definition, so this gives me a lip line to define my lips. I agree with everything the previous reviewer said, and I do find it is like a less orangey, more rosy version of MAC Spice, which was my HG before this one. This one lasts a long time on me and requires very little touch-up. At the same time, it's not really noticeable that I have lip liner on. It just kind of melts into and blends into the lipstick I apply. I highly recommend this one.

I'd give Papua 6 lippies if I could. It's my HG pink/nude liner. Most colors with "nude" or "natural" in the name are far too warm for me; they apply looking tan, peach, or caramel. On the other hand, cool-toned light-to-medium pinks tend to look Lindsay-Lohan artificial. Papua is a truly neutral nude-pink, with enough earthiness in it to lend real definition to the lips while still pairing well with light pinks, nudes, mauves, beiges, caramels, et al., or just by itself. Lately I've been into creamy mauves, and this liner is perfect with them. It's also a match made in heaven with NARS Dolce Vita lipstick; I'm surprised they don't sell them together. Imagine a lighter, less orangey version of MAC Spice. Love the opacity and lasting power of NARS lipliners.
