Honeybee Gardens Lip Liner Fantasy -- 0.04 oz
More plum-red than red, as I had expected from
... what others had written. But still a great product. You can get away with wearing it with a blue-red lipstick. The formula is great as with the other color I have.

Beautiful color & safe alternative
The color & wearability will depend upon one's skin type. My skin is light (type II) w/ yellow undertones & is combination (oily/normal). This is the darkest red by Honeybee and I love the way it looks against my skin. I've received many compliments.
I find the color stays for most of the day, even after eating & drinking.
One reviewer mentioned how the pencil sharpens unevenly, with one jagged edge. That has also been the case for me, but I have never found a wood pencil that didn't. Perhaps soaking the wood first would help? The uneven sharpening doesn't bother me. I've never injured myself with it, and I have never had the "lead" fall out of the pencil. Other brands, yes.
I find the ingredients to be more innocuous than any department store brand & some "natural" brands.

Complete waste of money
Based on the other couple of reviews and the price I thought I'd give this pencil a try. The first time I used it, the lead broke right off so I attempted to sharpen it. The wood disintegrates unevenly as you sharpen leaving jagged splinters surrounding the colored lead part that bit by bit breaks away as you continue to sharpen, and it breaks...so you sharpen more as it breaks, and breaks and breaks. If you finally get something resembling a "point" you will also stab yourself since the wood breaks into little daggers. And then the lead breaks off again anyway.

Healthiest lip liner out there
I really like this color as it is the darkest shade. I contacted HG and requested that they consider making more dark reds, and was told that there is not a demand for it, and until that happens, I'll have to stick to this particular product.
