This thin pencil does everything it's supposed to do (impressive, I know). I was initially suspicious and then read some of the reviews...finally decided to buy it ($14 CAD, not bad at all) and now I am AMAZED. This is the perfect product for me--I have naturally full lips (but alas, with small eyes so I can't pull off an Angelina), with a light, undefined upper lip and a dark, pouty bottom lip. I use this to draw just outside my upper lip, blend with my fingers, and it perfectly defines the shape of my upper lip, looking as natural as it's always been that way. I think this works better than a concealer stick for the lip area, as I've found stick concealers too creamy doesn't last for lip defining. Then I use this to line just the bottom of my bottom lip--right on the lip line--and draw a fine line, evening it out. Blend again, and my lips are balanced and well-proportioned. This looks amazing with a light l/g. <p> I can also line and fill in my lips, making it a blank canvas for a gloss (makes the gloss color show up truer and brighter). This can be used to change your lip's shape dramatically, and would be indispensable if you were to do a silver screen siren look (bright red cupid's bow lips). Also, just as it claims to do, it works perfectly on the inside corner of my eyes--it's just as creamy and easy to blend as BeneFit's EyeBright (I am SO getting a second one of this to replace my EyeBright). <p> That said, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone whose skintone isn't in the same range as the liner--it's really a shame they don't make this in one or two more colors--it'll be useless if you have anything darker than a light/medium skintone. Some reviewers have mentioned it looks white and unnatural, so I'd recommend trying it out first, but I've had no trouble with blending with my fingertips in mere seconds. Of course I moisturize well before applying this or any other makeup. This is a must-have in my makeup bag...what a great buy!
