Most Helpful Positive Review Stone is back?!?!?! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
I came on the site today to reorder a lipstick that had run low, and decided to check my "Favorites" list to see if there was anything there that I needed. And lo and behold an old friend reappeared - Stone lip pencil. I thought I must be seeing things. But no, it's there. And it's not marked as a limited edition.
Since it was discontinued several years ago, I've searched high and low for a replacement. But nothing was ever quite right. For the last year I had to use an EYE LINER to try and copy the color. Yes, an eye liner. I became desperate.
This was the perfect color for me to line my lips. It magically seemed to make my lips seem fuller (probably since it seems to almost mimics a very light shadow - thus giving the allusion of fuller lips). It also tones down brighter shades and turns pinks and nudes into colors that seem natural, healthy and beautiful. Some people may be turned off because it is described as grey muted taupe. But it is a truly natural looking color. Just not as yellow or orange as most "natural" or "beige" liners tend to be.
I ordered the maximum number that I was allowed with the largest smile on my face. PLEASE, PLEASE NEVER DISCONTINUE THIS AGAIN.
Most Helpful Critical Review PRODUCT HAS CHANGED
I've been buying the MAC lip pencil in Stripdown for over ten years. It's the only product I use to line and fill in my lips. The color closely matches my natural lip color and every pencil I've purchased through the years has never varied in color or consistency, its always been exactly the same. I just received an order of two Stripdown lip pencils and something has definitely changed. The color is different. It's more of a matte light brown and the consistency is awful. It's soft not firm. It's more like a lipstick consistency. I can't use it to line my lips because it smudges, is messy and the tip breaks off with very minimal pressure. Both lip pencils I received are this same new product.
Did I just get a bad batch or has my favorite color lip pencil really changed? I'm so disappointed.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

They go on perfectly! They also last all day, definitely going to buy more colors
Meesh from Va
Spice is the best liner shade ever for light warm skin tones. It is so pigmented and matches any neutral lipstick. With other liners I worry about my lips losing definition after eating but this always stays on.
Great lip pencils
KY Girl from Lexington, KY
I bought Whirl and Soar during 21 Days of Beauty. They're both great lip pencils! Soar is creamier and goes on a little easier, but Whirl goes on easily after warmed up a little. Both are great Fall colors! Neither color bleeds and both stay on all day. I like to line my lips, then fill in my entire lip and throw on some clear gloss. I can use both as an everyday lip pencil. Excited to try other colors.
Love this lipliner

It so easy to use to line lips or fill your whole lips and color is long lasting.

Very pretty, year round, color. Not my first MAC lip pencil so I can say with certainty it will last a very long time. Got it on sale. Great buy.
My go to liner

This is my go to liner! Glides on smooth, blends well. Love these lip liners...and the fact that they were on sale!
I Will Buy This Over and Over Again
Lisaz1 from Redding, CA
I've tried so many lipliners and none were ever quite right in the color I was looking for. I've found the perfect shade in this lip liner. It's perfect for my light-medium warm undertone. If you're looking for the perfect lipliner and are of similar skin tone/undertone just buy it!
Perfect liner color for nude lipsticks

Pleasantly surprised by Soar
I love sales from Arizona
I'm a POC and I tend to stray away from pink nudes because what might be perfect for some does not mean perfect for others. A lot of popular lip products are marketed towards fairer skin tones and often times do not feature a variety of skin tones modeling those shades. I was curious and excited by the sale so I took a chance and got it! It's my perfect pink nude. My only complaint is that it can enhance the wrinkles of your lips if your lips aren't fully hydrated prior to wear. A nice and smooth formula though.
Love Cork lip liner
René from the South from Alabama
Long lasting liner color. Deep and rich color but blends well with lighter lip shades to give a well defined lip shape. Waiting for FRENZY lip color to come back. This was a great look together!!
A great color for your nude lipsticks!
Lyn from Texas
This pencil glides on well over the lip and goes with many different nude colored lipsticks and glosses. I love it!
Most Versatile Color
Ampworks from Oregon Coast
I ALWAYS use lip liner and I Only use MAC. WHIRL is my favorite shade because it goes with anything and looks amazing by itself with some clear lip glass. I've been using MAC for over 20 years. The first thing I tried was their lip pencil. From that first time I haven't used anything else. Mac's so much better than all the rest that anything else just annoys me.
E. C from Tx
It is a great product for lip contouring. If you are wanting to lip contour chose the color of your shadow beneath your lip line. Glides on smoothly.
AmberG.field from Orange to
Literally my lip color. Makes filling in the corners of my lips really easy and natural looking. It is dry though I really wish it was a little creamy.
Just as expected

Perfect with Yash color!
JChoy from Cypress, TX
I love the color, very neutral. I use it as a lipstick. I first apply a lip primer and then the lip pencil.
Loved from Texas
I love this color I've gone through 4 lip pencils in the last year. It suits my skin tone perfectly! Buying another one now

If Lancome's Le Lipstique in Sheer Raspberry and Kevin Aucoin's The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Minimal had a beautiful baby and named it MAC Lip Pencil in Whirl.
