Amazing! I absolutely love this lip liner!! It is gorgeous. A perfect mauve nude-ish brown-ish color. It is perfect and I actually picked this up because of the Kylie Jenner lip trend happening. I thought her lip color looked gorgeous and supposedly she uses this and I had to have it. I tried it on in store and I knew I had to walk out of there with one. It was actually sold out so I picked it up "backordered" on nordstrom. I will definitely be buying this again and it will be aused daily.

It's definitley a mauve color, looks more brown than rosy on me. It's a matte, buildable and longlasting color. Will not repurchase since it's easy to find cheaper dupes. It goes with many lipstick colors like pink, coral, mauve, brown and even some purples.

Gorgeous!!! I wanted the Kylie Jenner pout so I went into MAC just to try it out, but after I tried it on I was sold! I'm a thrifty shopper so usually I would hunt down a cheaper dupe but I became so obsessed with it I had to get it right then and there, haven't left the house without wearing it!! It really does help make lips more pouty. I think this color looks better on people with yellow/warm undertones, since that adds warmth to the color, if your skin has a pink/cool undertones then this will drain the color from your face and make you look dead.
I'd have to compare it to a dupe before I decide whether its worth repurchasing... my wallet says ouch.

Classy & versatile! This goes great w MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick. The reported l/l that Kylie Jenner uses was the reason I heard about it (but not primary reason for buying it although it gives it more notoriety), but I am a little late if I am going to jump onto the Kylie Jenner lip bandwagon, but this is a beautiful nude, less rust than Spice, darker than STRIPDOWN, & more rose than Boldly Bare (on me). Those are my 4 fave lipliners & they all happen to be MAC even though I prefer auto pencils for being out and about, those 4 colors are all so beautiful esp Whirl, & they are about as high priced as I will spend on a lipliner. The good thing about wooden pencils is that you can sharpen them to a really fine point, but when I sharpen my beloved Whirl I feel like I am throwing little bits of shavings made out of pennies, dimes, & nickels straight into the garbage can :/

I bought this because it's the "Kylie Jenner lip liner" and I have very similar coloring as her, so narurally I thought this would look nice on me. My thoughts wete correct because this kind of brightens up my whole face while still looking natural. I can't wait to pair this with a lot of the nudes I have that previously washed me out. I think layering them over this liner will make them fit my face more. I think I will be looking for a dupe of this next time though, as I don't really find any need to spend this much on a lip liner.

I kinda really regret purchasing this liner. First of all, its a nude-ish shade in which I could get a comparable product/color from a lot of lower end brands. Secondly, it leans slightly grayish on me for some reason? Last but not least: I forgot how much I loathe MAC liners in that they are really hard in comparison to say Milani, NYX, and other more affordable "creamy" formulas.

I think this would be a lovely color for someone with pale (and paler) skin than mine. For me, it just doesn't work.

MAC calls this a "dirty rose" This has more of a tawny hue on me just bordering on rusty. My lips are naturally on the mauve tone. I've used this on it's own and also with the Moody blooms sheen supreme lippy Moody bloom and it is a perfect match. It does not come out nude on me as others have done which is fine I have lippys that will work with it as well as a great way to use it on it's own. I've not found a NYX pencil that can dupe this one so it will be a definite repurchase for me. Oh and you may have a time trying to find this one in stores it is rumored to be the pencil that Kylie Jenner uses.

A great basic nude lip liner that goes well with all lip colors. I keep multiples of these in my car, makeup bag and at home.

I have a ton of makeup, but this liner is a staple that I always wind up coming back to. This pretty much matches my natural lip color, perhaps a bit deeper. Im an NC25 with mauvey pigmented lips for reference. It's great to give depth to paler nude lip color or to match with a mlbb shade. I would definitely recommend this to people with pigmented lips looking for a natural liner. I apply it lightly and blend. It also looks great all over the lip with some gloss on top. I like the texture of MAC lip liners - they are smooth and apply evenly. I also like how they are a standard pencil. I prefer this to the automatic twist-up pencils that always seem thick and dry.
