answer 2
You use it around the edges of your lips - as in, you don't put it so it's on the color of where your lips are defined from the skin of your face. Your put it around where you will apply your lip color to your mouth. It's invisible on, so no worries of it showing.

You use this white, invisible pencil on the outside of your lip line. It really holds the gloss or lipstick in place.

To seal in lip color where it won't move outside your lip lines, use this pencil to line the outside of your lips. Then you can apply lip color and it will stay "sealed."

I was told to use any sharpener I had and I used my makeup sharpener but the pencil keeps breaking off. Could be I just need to buy a new sharpener since I have had it for a very long time. The pencil sure does work great though.

It needs to be sharpened (sadly) and the product is waxy so it gets a tad bit messier on the shapener than regular lip liners.

I can use a regular sharpener for the lip line protector. I have learned recently to always ask the lady at the counter if i need a special sharpener or not. Ruined a $18 stick of eye liner from Urban Decay because it requires a special sharpener.

I haven't tried the Urban Decay liner yet, but I have ordered it to compare. However, I have used the Make Up Forever liner for a long time now and have always been satisfied with it. It is invisible when applied and my lipstick never bleeds, no matter how dark the colour or what product I use. I always carry this liner with me and I hope you will be very happy with it!

Paraben free?
I'm highly allergic to parabens (among other things) and as far as I can tell the ingredients look clean, but I'm so wary of anything that doesn't say "paraben free" so I wondered if anyone could elaborate?
