First the great points: this is a lovely lip liner, smooth and creamy, never tugs, applies easily. The luxe packaging is a bonus: no need to sharpen ever, nice thickness of the line, not too pointy, not too dull.. BONUS: came with a refill stored in a transparent capped case (this could be used as the liner if you are packing very light eg up Mount Everest :)) and could not bring the pen itself).My only tiny reservation is that on my moderately deeply pigmented lips, and beside my medium olive skin, this color actually turned out more of a slightly lighter pink with clay overtones. The plus side is that I can color outside the lip line because there will be no dreaded outline "ghost" a la Kim Kardashian when the lipstick fades. So I can "cheat" a little in outlining my lips and it still looks natural.I can see why it would be perfect for someone with lighter, pinker skin, and with less pigmented lips. For me it is very good, but not perfect, hence the 4 stars. Something in between the La Prairie lip liner (see my review, it is great for evenings) and this Fig would be perfect for daytime - that would be 5 stars for me.

These automatic lip liners are great. They swivel up and also retract. You can buy refills if you don't want to replace the entire pen. The formula itself is creamy and stays well. Fig reminds me of MAC Spice which I used for years but had to sharpen. Fig looks best with nudes, browns, and pink-browns. For corals and bright pinks I use the Rose Coral color which seems to be discontinued. There is Cafe Rose, but that is a cooler shade than Rose Coral. I am always hoping the company will add more shades in this automatic lip liner. The choices are limited and as of this posting they don't have a beige or red. They do have red in the regular old-fashioned pencil that you sharpen, but this swiveling pen is so much more convenient for toting around. It has a brush for blending on one end, and comes with one refill, and you can always buy more refills separately for $15 instead of replacing the whole kit and caboodle. $27 for an automatic pencil may seem high but they do last a long time and you don't have to clean up wooden shavings. I wish a cruelty free brand would develop an automatic liner as good as this.

Beautiful!!! So natural and pretty....has become one of my favorites. I read this is jennifer aniston's favorite lip liner and now I know why...it's just a gorgeous color. Wear it alone or with gloss on top or with your favorite nudish pink lippie and wow!!! A+++++++

I was using MAC Whirl and thought for 2 years that nothing can get to more natural lip liner color as this. Then I have read that Jenifer Aniston has been using Estee Lauder Fig for 10 years so I decieded to try! Well those two are almost similar. Estee Lauder is just little little more intense. so I am thinking to get those two to give the most natural lip look! And yeah, you can use this with any lipliner and any lip color! It is a MUST have product to have in your cosmetic bag!

This is my go to shade for lip lining and I love that it lasts. I can usethis alone with lip gloss and it looks great.Fig may be too dark for NC15 or NW15. I am NC20 in winter andNC25 in summer and this matches my skin tone perfectly.Being a warm tone it matches me beautifully. My daughter is cool toned NW10/15 and this does not work for her.She needs something more pink. Fig is almost brown. A warm soft brown color.The lasting power is pretty good. It outlasts the lipstick which canlook silly if you are not aware. The pencil or actual crayon typetexture goes on smooth, no tugging and is easy to use. I am inmy 40s so wrinkly around my lips a bit but this product helpsmake a smooth line that does not run. Thank heavens it staysput!I love that EL does not cheap out. My liner has lasted easily 6months and I use this one color three times a week. Does notdry out and still feels brand new. I have used Rev, L'Oreal and Sephora lipliners but these dry out orthe tips break or even worse the companies only provide a tiny miniscule amount and it is used up before a month haspassed. Such a large package for a small amount. EL doesnot do this, you get a full 4 months or longers worth. The other part that EL does, and I love this, is that you can justget refills. A great way to save a little but trust me for the moneyit is worth it.I would rather buy one EL lip liner than 10 ds brands that don'tlast, run or break.

This is the perfect, natural reddish brown shade I have found in a lip liner. I use this liner with light and dark shades. It is so versatile because it is a perfect match to my natural lip shade...just a tad darker to give some definition. I can't tell you how many times I have repurchased this one. The refills are only 12 bucks...not outrageous. No sharpening either. My HG liner...

I have used this liner for several years. It is refillable and the case is very sturdy. The color is neutral, so it goes with every color of lipstick, gloss, you name it. It does have a pink touch to it, but my lips are naturally pigmented, so it is a winner! Perfect for traveling because this one is really all you need. Have refilled it plenty of times and will continue to do so.

This liner is so creamy! It's an automatic pencil, so it never needs sharpening. The color is the perfect neutral, IMO. I have other neutral liners, but this one has a little more pink in it. Most of my other neutral liners are too brown. This liner is a little expensive, if I remember correctly. However, I bought it a long time ago and I haven't had to replace it yet. It's definitely worth the price. I love how the automatic pencil is refillable, and it's so high end looking. The pencil itself looks high end, and the product does not disappoint!! So creamy, and I love the Fig color.

The consistency is creamy and non-drying. Very easy to wear, good quality product and stays put (this colour anyway). However, I found the colour, though again easy to wear, not the best, but that is hugely subjective obviously. It didn't give me any oomph, any anything really.I put a gloss on top just to see, and no one thought it stood out - more of an "ok". So, while not for me, the consistency and quality is excellent.

There's a reason that I have been using this for over 10 years-it's really that good. Great neutral shade that goes on super smooth. Not cheap, but worth every penny and it lasts for forever.
