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?

I have used Mac pencils for years after trying many brands. Lots of color choices and long lasting.

I'm all about a low end dupe but with lip liners, Mac lip liners are so different in consistency and quality! I will splurge for these and just tip them with my lower end dupes lol
I have olive skin, light berry colored lips. This particular color is a little too light.
Favorite Neutral Lip Liner
Sooner Gal from Tulsa, OK
It's just creamy enough and long lasting. This is my second one to purchase...
Really like this color!
Jimminicrkt from McKinney, TC
Bought this lip liner in both Plum and Soar. I've only tried out Plum so far, but it's easily going to become my new fave! I really like how smoothly it goes on, no tugging (even on super dry lips), and the staying power was great!
Nice nurse from Dallas
Bought this along with a c-thru lip glass. Unable to handle in store , salesperson rang purchase and bagged. Got home to find a squeeze tube of clear lip gloss. Purchased the correct item online from another retailer. Lip liner was fine as always.
I won't buy this product again, will be returning.
Teri from KY
The pencil is dry and color doesn't go on as it appears in pencil. The first one was too red and the second was orange. I was trying to buy a pinkish brown or pinkish nude.
M from Tx
I got this because I'm pretty sure I saw Alexa Demi use it in a video, anyways, the shade is so gorgeous but it just rubs off easily especially if you are making out. This man barely had lips but it still rubbed off ugh. The lip liner wasn't the only disappointment I guess.
Perfect pair with Red Scare
K from Austin
A longtime lover of all thinks MAC and this liner is a great quality product to wear alone or with a lipstick. I don't do liquid lippies and instead, use the MAC prep and prime for lips with a liner for the perfect lip. I purchased the Cherry lip line to pair with Trixie Cosmetics Red Scare lipstick and it a fab match. Pulls very red-blue.
Yogawoman from Hopedale, MA
Whirl is a great color that goes with a lot of lip colors
I would buy this product again

All time favorite lip liner
Viktoreyah from Portland
This is my all time favorite liner : so smooth, plumps my lips . The color is perfect it matches a lot of different shades of lipsticks
delila from Ohio
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
Scarlet from Riverside, CA
It so easy to use to line lips or fill your whole lips and color is long lasting.
Ginormica M. from Ga.
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
Saltwatergirlie from York, Pa
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

This color is great to pair with nude colored lipsticks

Very light . NC43

It is very light and can't b seen on my lips . NC43
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!!
