Packaging: 9/10

These are straight-forward pencil liners that need sharpening as you use up the product.

Quality: 8.75/10

All of the colors have great payoff and pigmentation. This collection provides a range from light-to-dark but mostly cool-toned colors.

Entertain Me and Lasting Sensation are probably too similar in orange color to justify buying both. And Just My Type is too dark and too brown to be wearable for most people. I think the most exciting color is Just Wonderful, which is a rich berry color with subtle shimmers.

The formula for these pencils is long-wearing, but they are stiff. They do catch on the skin and take a good amount of dragging to transfer. They also dry out the lips.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

Because they aren’t creamy, the pencils with skip and pull on the skin while applying. Because of the lack of moisture, you’ll also want to apply an emollient lip balm, gloss, or lipstick on top.

Price: 9/10

For $13.00, you get 1.45 grams of product.

    Hm…I don’t usually use lipliner unless it’s clear, and these seem pretty standard. Entertain Me and Lasting Sensation ARE really similar; the only time you’d need them both is if you normally wear a few shades of orangey lipcolor, which I don’t think many people do. Just Wonderful would be the color I’d try, too.

    I prefer creamier pencils but I am still trying these out beacause I feel that these kind wear longer and feather out less. thanks for the honest review!
