I currently wear glossy lip stains, but can never commit to one color, so I figured I'd try this lip pencil out so I won't have to buy several lip pencils for different shades. I actually started laughing the first time I was putting this on, thinking that this was completely pointless as I couldn't imagine it working with a gloss formula versus a normal lipstick. I was thinking about how stupid I was to waste money on this invisible thing that I couldn't even see on my lips. I was shocked. It worked fantastically! It's basically a clear wax, so it just picks up the color of you lip product and acts as a super-duty normal liner. My life is changed. This is fantastic!
