I love the brand Lipstick Queen and have at least 7 of their lipsticks. I was looking for a lipliner to go with all of them to stop bleeding and help the mattes last longer. This seemed to be ideal as I wouldn't have buy different lipliners to match each color. So it does work for bleeding, and the color does stay on longer, but it is very dry, and almost seems to crumble when I put it on. It is also a very fine tip that drags and is hard to fill in your whole lip if you are using it for the purpose of helping lipstick hold longer. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect clear lipliner!
