You apply this product to bare lips, immediately after you can apply lipstick,lip liner, etc. The plastic looking thing next to it is a sharpener , the product is a twist up and does not need to be sharpened , however with use the pointed tip may wear down, so you can always use the sharpener if you want the precision. It's a great product, I've been using it for a few months now, I wouldn't be able to live without it. Hopefully this helps :)

The item is a sharpener but its on the inside of the product, it's self sharpening. This product is to go on before lipstick, as a primer, or used as a lip liner ( thats how I use it).

I do not use a lip liner, put this on your lips then apply lip stick, it will hold the darkest colors in place. No more lip color leaving the lip area into facial lines. The small object is a small brush, I have bought 2 of the lip primers and did not get this brush. It is not needed. The stick is angled and applies easily. I love it.

The item next to the primer is a sharpener. You can use it to regain the "tip". The tip is used for lining the lips and the sides for priming the entire lip. I out this on before applying my lipstick for the day.

You use the tip to line the lips and the sides of the point for the lips themselves. It's really simpler than it sounds.
The small item that's shown is actually a built in sharpener for the lip pencil! It's super handy since it's a part of the packaging - so you will never be without. I line my lips with this product, than fill them in. I've found that this liner is sufficient enough for myself, but the sales associate at Sephora recommended using a liner post-application.

That "attachment" is sharpener and is built into the pencil, it clicks in or out of the end.
I use this BEFORE my liner or lipstick. I had never used liner before using this product due to the creeping or feathering. I try to "line" my lips with this FIRST (either just inside or just outside my natural lip line) then sometimes I fill in my lips a little) I then line my lips with color liner OVER the clear pencil. It magically keeps my liner from creeping out. The girls at Sephora suggested that I fill in my lips and it should help lock in the color. Its a bit too soon to comment on that part. But the creeping has stopped.

I was instructed (by a sales associate at Sephora) that you line your lips with the primer to prevent your lipstick from smearing, and then fill your lips in with the primer to hydrate your lips while you're wearing the lipstick and so your lipstick will last longer.

I'm over 62 & adore this product--no creeping whatsoever. Apply it using the edge of your lips as a guide, leaving product outside the hipline, and on the lips too. With Bite lipstick I no longer need a lipliner (which I've used since my teens!). BTW, that's the cap for the lipliner.
