MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencils Review

What We're Sweet On: Long-Wear Lipliner That Doesn't Budge




Lip pencils are a great way to keep your color around longer, but it's rare to find one that makes you go "Hey, I really don't need to put anything on top of this." MAC's new Pro Longwear Lip Pencils ($18 each), though, may just be that product. Without anything on top, the pencil lasted through a Diet Coke, a cup of green tea, and half a pack of Trident before it even budged, and it was almost all still there by day's end. All of the shades perform well, but two standouts — the gorgeous ruby red Kiss Me Quick and In Anticipation, a soft rose hue — are so pretty that they're wearable on their own. And that, my friends, is no throwaway line.

As a witness to Miriam's daytime snacking habits, I can confirm that she ate a full lunch and snacks during lip liner testing day.

I sure hope that's not all that you ate that day (Diet Coke, a cup of green tea, and half a pack of Trident)! Lol. A bit pricey for $18 though...imho.

Well I like MAC lipsticks (well the ones I have chosen) since they last practically forever on my lips, I guess it is natural I should try their lip pencils. Oddly enough I never wore a lip pencil since my lips are pigmented in a way that it looks like I have a dark lip liner on my lips naturally. I am so East L.A. *lol*.

Make up forever makes the best long wearing lip liner in about 20 shades. My favorite aqua lip liner is 2C. I can wear it alone or my it shine with a clear gloss or give it the WOW factor by choosing a blood red gloss and it will still have the same long wear results.
