MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Ruby


MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils are back and are now part of MAC's permanent line! I consider this good news since I've previously owned & reviewed the color 'Patentpink' and I quite liked it. So when I first received 'Ruby' I recognized it right away thinking 'wow, I'll probably use this one'. What is more, the color seems like a lot of fun too.


So, the story is pretty much the same - they don't stay on as long as a lipstick, but they are less sticky than a lipgloss. I like them because their creamy texture is easy to apply. Plus I find them to be really hydrating and lightweight, not too tacky or shiny.

The colors are fairly subtle, but can be layered. You can either wear them alone or get creative and use them on another lip product - a lip pencil or a lipstick.

I also like that these are twist up pencils, because I find sharpening my cosmetic pencils very annoying. It's good to know that I don't have to do that with these.

Lastly, the pencils have the same familiar vanilla scent that all MAC lipsticks have. :)


This is how 'Ruby' looks on me. The color is slightly transparent, so it looks lighter on lips than in the tube. However, it's still a nice color, right?

In conclusion, whether you like these lip pencils or not is probably a matter of preference, but I recommend giving them a try! 


MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils are now available at MAC counters and sold online at maccosmetics.com and Nordstrom.


As always, I would love to hear your thoughts! What do you think of these? Have you tried any of them yet?  :)

  1. Ma just näppisin seda sarja poes, mõtlesin, et milline see peal jääb...

    Mulle isiklikult ei meeldi see läbipaistvus ja, et tulemus huuleläike moodi...

    1. No nüüd vähemalt tead! :D Minu meelest meenutab see kõige rohkem poolläbipaistvaid geel-huulepulki :)

  3. Oh, that's such a gorgeous color and I love how it looks on! I love pencils but my only issue is that I always have to sharpen them and I always lose my sharpener!

    1. I think it could, since you can use any lipstick on cheeks if you want to. :) I haven't tried it myself, though, because I'm not that into cream blushers myself. :D
