I have very pigmented lips and the edges are uneven/mottled because of a burn when I was young. I wanted to try this because I need something to even the edges of my lips, but due to their naturally dark color, I usually try to subdue them with gloss, etc. I'm just not a liner and lipstick girl--no matter how "nude" the lipstick is, it always draws attention to my lips and that's what I'm trying to avoid. ANYWAY. I love that the liner is opaque but actually nude--for my coloring, it actually evens up the edges of my lips without making an obvious line (I smudge/blend it inward after applied) and somehow gives a kind of pretty highlight. I use a nude or shimmery gloss on top and my lips look great! I love how the pencil gives a natural but defined look to my lips and allows me to achieve that nude lip look that was impossible before! ALSO--before this I was using the Maybelline Pure concealer (looks like an eyeliner pencil but with concealer) which works fine, but has less staying power around the mouth. For those of you whose coloring won't match this pencil, the Pure concealer might be worth a try.
