This is a lip liner, but I like to use lip liners all over for long-lasting color. Even though most lip liners are quite dry, this one was just like lipstick in pencil-form, which seemed great. However, I found that it lasted on my lips about as long as regular lipstick, too--it wore off after about five minutes. Literally FIVE MINUTES! Also, the color was lovely on the outside of the pencil, but on my lips it seemed to be browner, and since I'm blonde with blue eyes, it doesn't look good. Very disappointing.
