Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick in Deep Burgundy
The entire thing is basically a fat traditional lip liner, meaning there’s no twisting mechanism to get the product. Boo! I had to buy a sharpener separately. Tip: Before sharpening this, pop it in the fridge for a few hours to make it harder and make it less susceptible to be squashed in the sharpener.

It’s meant to be a lip liner and lip color in one stick: line your lips and fill them out. It’s actually great at that job. I never had any harsh lines unlike with a traditional liner. But it was one major flaw…
TOO. MUCH. GLITTER.
Yep. On my lips, it looks okay, but as the day wears on, I noticed that I have glitter on my mug, on my hands, on my handkerchief. It’s so easily transferable I can hardly even touch my face without worrying that my hands will get a dose of sparkle. Just, NO.
If they make a version of this that is a little more transfer-proof and has zero glitter, I’ll be more than happy to try it again!
Verdict: Too much glitter that transfers everywhere. Not for me.
