Niki Driss

Personally suits my lip shade perfectly and can wear on it's own or with the matching lipstick. So pretty!

Most Helpful Criticism

Not for me


I purchased Ruby Woo, and while I love the colour I've found it's really bleeding on my skin. I have extremely oily skin and open pores all over my face (not just t-zone), so maybe this is a contributing factor. It's a bummer, I would've stuck with asap's lip liner if there wasn't only one colour in stock!
  1. Amazing!

  2. Love it


    One of my fav lip pencils, works great as a base to make your lipstick last all night long
  3. Whirl - MLBB


    Whirl is surprisingly a my lips but better shade. It's mauve but can go with most shades. I like it, but I've found a similar formula that's much cheaper. Its easy to apply and quite smooth, doesn't have the best staying power though.
  4. Lips best friend


    These lip liners are so creamy and smooth. Glide on effortlessly and really stay put. Great pigmentation.
  5. Everyday staple


    I adore this lip liner. I enjoy wearing it everyday because it's so long lasting and comfortable.
  6. classic


    my go to lip liners! my favourite shade is subculture - a perfect nude
  7. I keep returning


    Lip pencils are one of those things you can find cheap ones that do the same job as ridiculously priced ones. Except MAC pencils, I keep buying them, they just work better than the others. They are creamy, stay put, have an incredible range of colours so you never have to do that horrible 90's look with mismatched lip lines. They last forever and sharpen well, often an overlooked problem with some...

  8. Best!


    This is my second purchase of MAC's Ruby Woo lip pencil, I love it that much! Stays so well and is the perfect red lip pencil, even with other red lipsticks (Such as Russian Red, MAC Red, etc even other brands). I always colour my whole lip, apply lipstick then blot and reapply lipstick, and it always stays for ages!
  9. Smooth and hydrating


    Really smooth and creamy, easy to use. Problem is can be used up quite quick because its so creamy, ends up sharpening this every time. I got a shade that is Asia exclusive so not sure what the best replacement shade would be so still on the hunt for it!
  10. Mac lip liners are THE BEST


    I bought 3 MAC lip liners - because all the colours were so good I couldn’t decide.

    They are a gorgeous creamy consistency, long lasting, and easy to apply.

    Great value!

  11. Ol faithful


    True to MAC form. Cannot love this product enough! I sometimes use this just as a full lip colour.
  12. Love it!


    Great pencil, and Velvet Teddy is the "It" colour of the last few years. This is my go to pencil and I would be hard pressed to use anything else. Also have the matching lipstick which i love.
  13. Love a lipliner


    Just enhances shape of my lips & seems to help lipstick stay put. Love it
  14. Whirl is amazing


    I purchased this when Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk was sold out and I needed a replacement - boy was I impressed by this! This shade is perfect for pale skin with pigmented lips. I love it so much and I'm well on my way to needing a second one. If you're thinking about this give it a go - you won't be disappointed!
  15. Very good


    The colour "Stripdown" is my favourite lip colour ever! I really struggled for a long time to find the perfect
    "nude" for my skintone and hair colour (light-tan with darker hair). Colours I've tried previously are normally too pink, too brown, or just too light/dark. This is perfect, I love it! If you're searching for a red I also love Ruby Woo. You have to pair these with a lipbalm or glos...

  16. Whirl is the perfect lip liner


    I recently purchased this in the shade Whirl and where has it been all my life?! My lips are slightly darker so this colour works really well to outline my lips before basically any shade. I honestly just sometimes use this lip liner and pair it with just a clear lip balm such as Lanolips 101, it looks so good on! Also really goes well with any pinky/nudey gloss. I also pair this with my other Mac...

  17. Best lip liner


    I love Mac lip liners they are seriously good. Great for overlining lips and making them look fuller
  18. Nice and soft


    I bought this lip liner a couple weeks ago as a staple for my basic everyday look that brings more definition to my lips and I love it! Nice and creamy, easy to use
  19. Great Lip Liner


    I really love the colour range in these lip liners. They feel comfortable on the skin and have a good colour payout. I just wished they stayed on a little while longer!
  20. OG of lip liners


    I love these lip liners, they glide on smoothly and the shades are beautiful. The shades I always reach for are stripdown (a soft brown) and whirl (mauve pink).
  21. Goes on so smoothly


    MAC lip liners are worth the hype. Product goes on so smoothly which makes application easy. The range of colours is also out of control so there’s a colour for every skin type.
  22. Amazing lip liner


    I purchased Spice to go with Velvet Teddy: LOVE this lip liner :) super smooth to apply don’t bleed. Just great! Will be buying more
  23. Amazing liners


    Bought Ruby Woo to go with the matching lip stick and it’s kier great. Wash to apply and doesn’t bleed out. I want them all!!
  24. Classic!


    I have this in Subculture and it is a perfect my-lips-but-better colour (I'm MAC NW15 - pale with yellow undertones). A perfect shade for a long-lasting colour to enhance my natural lip line. I love to pair this with a gloss!
  25. nice colours


    these are pretty awesome, theyre good if you want that perfect lips for going out and want your lipstick to last alot longer, can also use it all over the lip, its kind of drying though but it does last long so its worth it in my opinion


    Mac Lip Liners are such a treat and I love mine. Spice, Soar, Boldy Bare, Subculture, oh the list is endless! I am a sucker for an extremely sharp liner, they are my secret weapon!
  27. the og


    OAK IS THE OG!! This colour is extremely versatile and can be use minimally to give your lips a touch of colour and outline, or you can go heavy for a darker look. Will suit a wide range of skin tones. Generally speaking, MAC have done a great job at creating a pencil that glides on very smoothly. Doesn't dry my lips out either which can sometimes be prone to this after liners.
  28. Okay but bit darker than expected


    I love this lipliner for everyday nude, but I do have to mix it with a lighter nude/pink lipstick because it does look a bit too dark if you fill in quite a bit of your lips. It does stay on all day though ! And doesn’t smudge so that is amazing !
  29. Classic


    Classic lip liner. Soft texture, blends perfectly and the colours are all super pigmented. I love these for creating natural plump and full lip looks!
  30. Intense colour pay off and comfortable to wear


    I have this in spice. I find it a really good every day shade for me and I like like layering it under nude tone lipsticks and lipglosses to increase the staying power. It does it’s job. Comfortable to wear and lasts longer.
  31. Fave liners


    Love mac lip liners, they are my go-to. Wish they had more range in colour, but I love the formula and lasting power.
  32. The best


    The only lip liner you’ll ever need, huge range of colours and makes lips appear larger for a plump look
  33. Not my fave


    For the price this is a very average lip liner. Doesn't stay on for very long and bleeds.
  34. Really nice lip pencil formula


    I love the MAC lip pencil. The shades are so flattering and it feels amazing on the lips. Love that it is a sharpened pencil, it allows for a precise tip.
  35. Absolutely love this liner


    Bought this liner after seeing Chantelle Baker rave about it, absolutely love it! It's an amazing liner and it's also super creamy - love the stay power! Oak and Spice are my favourites for the 90's dusty pink trend
  36. Does the job, would be great if it was retractable though!


    I bought Stripdown, it's a little warmer than I was expecting but still a great nude colour. It's a longer pencil than many other brands so should last me a while (I'm not one to use lip liner every single day). Goes perfectly with the Velvet teddy lipstick. Would recommend :)
  37. You can’t go past Mac lipliner


    These lip liners are great. They are soft so you don’t have to press hard, the colour range is amazing. They are a great price as well. I have Boldly bare, subculture, soar, and spice. These are great colours.
  38. Great liner


    This lip liner is a staple in my makeup drawer. Love the creamy texture, it glides easily on the lip. Easy to smudge out with my lip brush or line the lip for a defined outline. Love love love & will always have this product on hand.
  39. Creamy gorgeous lip pencils!

    Elle H

    I have these in so many colours but recently purchased Dervish and Edge to Edge. Pairs beautifully with Please Me and Faux Mac lipsticks or also as an all over colour under a sheer gloss! Beautiful!
  40. Perfect nude


    I bought so many different nude lip colours before I discovered "Stripdown" by Mac and it has become my absolute favourite. It's not too pink/brown/peachy but just right. It loses a star because it does get a bit dry on my lips, even when I apply lip balm frequently over the top.
  41. LOVE


    Gorgeous creamy nude/brown - goes with so many of my other lipsticks, its definitely my go to shade for most of my lippys.


    In love with MAC lip pencils. I purchased stripdown and now it's my go to shade. Such a creamy and delicious nude/brown - goes with so many of my other MAC lipsticks!
  43. Love


    Creamy, easy to apply and lovely colour.
  44. Love!


    So buttery and beautiful! The best lip pencil
  45. Perfect nude


    perfect nude, lasts so long, the nude matches so well for olive skin tones as it is soo hard to find the right nude with tanner skin usually too light or too pink, but stripdown pencil is the perfect one been using it for years
  46. So great!


    i love the MAC lip liners! They are great and very pigmented. The shades are also beautiful. This is a bit of a dry formula but it gives you more control. I have so many of them.
  47. classics


    Classic lip liners, i have almost all the colours. They have the best colours and the best formulas. Ill be sticking to this brand of liners forever!
  48. Beautiful lip liners

    Emma Loves Makeup

    These are excellent - the quality is very high and I find they make such a precise line. I love them :)
  49. The perfect peachy nude


    I love this shade it is perfect for everyday look and for special event make ups. It is creamy and glides onto the lip.
  50. Very nice!


    I really like the MAC lip pencil, they aren't my favourite but they are very nice. I have a few shades and I find them to be beautiful. The formula is quite dry so it is good to get a nice and precise line on your lips but sometimes I wish it was more of a creamier formula.
  51. perfecto


    Ruby woo and mid pinkish brown is my fav! so good.
  52. Pinky Mauve


    Very creamy and doesn't come off easily.
  53. OG lip liners


    Amazing lip liners, pair perfectly with the lipsticks
    Great range to suit all skin tones
  54. Great quality liner


    This Mac lip pencil is great for lining the lips. It works really well with a complimentary Mac lipstick shade. It creates a lovely lip look. Such great quality liner.
  55. great lipliners


    Ive got to say the lip pencil whirl and the Mac lipstick velvet teddy are amazing combination. I love those two together. These pencil last forever even tho I almost use it everyday
  56. Lasting


    This lasts a long time even when the lipstick is kind of wearing of. Glides well on lips too.
  57. Amazing


    Amazing lip liner my favourite shade is soar love it
  58. cool product


    very good for filling in lips before applying Mac lipsticks, helps lipstick to stay longer
  59. Best lip liners


    I have multiple shades of these liners, and absolutely love them. They stop my lipstick from moving and feathering, are lovely and creamy, and easy to apply. Great range of shades too. Easy to use to create a neat line.
  60. Love love love


    I absolutely love mac lip pencils, they work so well with ensuring your lipstick doesn't crack & can even be worn alone with just lip balm on top of them due to they're strength in colour!
  61. Not for me


    I purchased Ruby Woo, and while I love the colour I've found it's really bleeding on my skin. I have extremely oily skin and open pores all over my face (not just t-zone), so maybe this is a contributing factor. It's a bummer, I would've stuck with asap's lip liner if there wasn't only one colour in stock!
  62. Holy grail!


    This lip liner is the holy grail of all lip liners. Super smooth and creamy application, lasts hours and colours are pigmented and stunning!
  63. Boldly Bare


    It glides on so easily, and the colour is a reddish brown that’s not too dark or harsh for my skin tone. I think Boldly Bare is a colour that would look good on everyone.
  64. nice


    I think lip liners are very important makeup products. It makes the lipstick last a little longer. I really like the mac ones. I really love whirl
  65. Essential


    Essential step on the makeup routine for defined lips
  66. Fully functional lip pencil


    Package was crushed on arrival but pencil was not damaged and as it is for myself I was not bothered by this.
    Brand new the pencil was crazy sharp and I had to blunt it down a bit less it slice my lips off. Texture was soft and did not have to be warmed prior to use. The colour was a poor choice on my part and I should have chosen a warmer-pinker colour.
    I bought it as a colour match...

  67. great lipliners


    They feel so buttery and creamy. It makes my lips look more fuller and more defined! I probably have most shades in the lip liner .
  68. Not pigmented enough


    I really need a good pigmented lip pencil and Mac usually does the job but the shade subculture is far too light and hardly pigmented at all . maybe on brighter younger more supple lips it would be ok , but I prefer the shade Spice or some of the deeper nudes .
  69. Perfect Nude


    Boldly Bare is the perfect pinky nude, great with a matte or gloss, easy to apply and doesn't transfer off easily.
  70. Great colour range!


    I own this lip liner in multiple colours as I find the staying power to be wonderful. I love how buttery and easy to apply these are, and it really helps make your lips fuller and more defined! There are also so many options to pick from which is amazing!
  71. Good lipliner


    I like to use MAC lip liner before using my lipstick. It does help with the longevity of my lipstick, and my lipstick does not smudge as much during the day. It is not too drying and does not tug on skin when applying. I love the wide range of colours as well.
  72. Perfect colour


    The consistency and colour is perfect to use with so many lipsticks and so easy to blend
  73. Love this lip pencil


    I love Mac lip pencils, I have them in a range of colours. They're easy to apply, great colours and they stay on. I use a little bit of lip balm then use them all over my lips (not just as a liner) and will sometimes add a lipstick over the top to give a deeper colour.
  74. Pretty colour but slightly dry - #boldly bare


    Looks like a more orangey- fall shade swatched but on the lips becomes a nice MLBB nude colour. Needs a bit of warming up on the hands then applies very smoothly on the lips. Colour is versatile however formula is more on the drier side so overall it was okay.

  76. Great


    I bought the Ruby Woo shade to go with my MAC red satin lipstick. I have always loved MAC products and this one did not disappoint. The colours go together perfectly and the quality is great.
  77. Gods gift


    Whirl is the best colour in the world, period. And it lasts.
  78. Amazing


    One of the best lip pencils I have ever used! So smooth and buttery!
  79. Subculture


    A really nice nudey pink lip liner, almost identical to my lip colour so good for over lining the lips and I can put any lipstick on top of it to extend it's staying power. Really good quality and pigmented. This one has a very very slight shimmer and is a beautiful colour.
  80. Great product


    Easy to apply lipliner, last ages and can generally find a shade to match multiple lipsticks
  81. Love love love!


    I have a few of these pencils, my favourite is Spice - such a lovely shade especially on tanned skin. I love how easy these are to apply and the lasting power. I sometimes use these as the lipstick shade and find that it last well on the lips. I am not a massive lip liner fan but these definitely make a difference to the lips.
  82. Suits most pinkisg nude shades


    Not sure why I bought this as I never wear lip liner. Good colour that suits most nudes and pinks. I would suggest trying before you buy.
  83. Don't buy anything else


    I've purchased other lip pencils in the past and still never reach for them as much as I reach for my MAC ones. I've got about 12 different MAC liners now (some in duplicate colours) and they seem to be my most used time and time again.
  84. Amazing


    They match the lipsticks so well and last an incredibly long time! My go to lip liners
  85. My go to


    Couldn’t recommend this product enough! I’m pretty lazy so having this guy on hand allows me to line my lips for any shade of lipstick. It’s smooth and creamy and looks great on its own too.
  86. Go to nude lip liner


    Love this lip liner, it blends so nicely with different kinds of nude shades so its really versatile wether you go for a pinky nude or more beigey nude!
  87. Perfect pencil


    These are fantastic lip pencils! Such a great range of colours and they glide on so smoothly and last for hours
  88. So smooth


    These glide onto the lips like butter. Amazing!
  89. lip love


    must have & must use prior to any lipstick application. my fav colour is dirty rose. Sometime i just use pencil and then apply my lip balm over the top. Last a long time
  90. Love it


    I love Mac lip liners there long lasting, whirl is my everyday go to
  91. Good quality


    I have this in Spice, which is slightly darker than Velvet Teddy lipstick. Slightly darker than I was expecting, I like to wear this on its own all over the lip with a balm over the top. It lasts surprisingly well! The pencil is longer than I'd expected and it's a great texture to line the lips. I'm hesitant to spend this much on a lipliner and have usually used chemist brands but I think I've bee...

  92. Fave


    Love Mac lip pencils. These are the perfect texture, they don't need sharpening every time you use them
  93. great for long wear make up


    Last for a very long time! its a bit rough when you apply it, its hard but other than that its perfect.
  94. Love this!


    Mac lip liners go on so smoothly and are long lasting! I got the shade soar to go with Mehr lipstick and it’s perfect!
  95. Whirl


    Love this lip liner in the shade whirl, this is the second time I have purchased this. It gives a nice natural defined shape to the lips and wears well. I use this to line the outside of the lips and i use a lip balm in the middle for a fuller pout.
  96. Love it


    Really love this, easy to apply and easy to sharpen. I find a lot of pencils break when sharpened which frustrates me as I feel like its wasted.
  97. Exactly what I wanted.


    I’ve wanted to try lining my lips for a plumper and fuller look for a while now. This lip liner went on so so smoothly it did not bleed and colour matched to your lip or lipstick gives you that “bigger lip” look. I love mine!
  98. The best lip liners!!


    Soar and whirl are my favourite to create a natural, plump and full lip!! Can make my lips look 10x bigger naturally. Perfection!
  99. Soar is my holy grail


    I use the lip pencil in soar and it is the perfect pinky nude colour. It goes on so smooth and is very long-lasting. Love it.
  100. Perfect Nude Lip


    I love this lip liner it applies really easily and is the perfect nude. I have fair skin and struggle to find nudes that suit however this colour suits me perfectly!
