I've used this lipliner in the past and wasn't really impressed. It was okay, but it didn't come in the shade of red that I was looking for. Beyond that, it didn't stay on my lips like I had hoped it would. It seemed to wear off throughout the day and color seemed to fade. It also seemed to wipe-off and/or smudge easier than other brands I had tried. Given that downside, I would say that this lipliner isn't necessarily worth the price. There are other lipliners that I have purchased for much cheaper at local drug stores that seem to hold their color a lot longer and come in the shade I want as well. The good part about this lipliner is that it glides on smoothly and it doesn't take a lot of it to stand-out on your lips. It does seem to last awhile, so at least you don't have to run out and buy a new one right after purchasing one, so that's a definite plus. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to a friend.
