According to Burberry their Lip Definer lip pencils boast,
A delicate texture with a high concentration of natural waxes and vegetal oils to give suppleness to the lips. An ultimate soft and smooth gliding liner that effortlessly defines the lip line. Extremely adherent, soft and moisturizing, it wraps the lips in naturally even color. An Amino acidic derivative with hydrating power improves firmness around the lip contour.
Being a Burberry enthusiast I had to pick up a couple of these lip liners to try them out. I had read some mixed reviews, but wasn't dissuaded because I really have a great degree of brand confidence. Furthermore, when I swatched them in store I was sold. One of the chief criticisms I read asserted that the lip pencils were hard and tugged on their lips (I wonder if those were old uncapped testers, or from a bad lot?). That has not been my experience, at all. I purchased Nude Beige and Rosewood, and both are creamy and smooth as they effortlessly slide across my lips, (there is no tugging whatsoever). They are richly pigmented, comfortable to wear, lightweight on the lips, and non-drying. In fact, I have found them to be moisturizing, but they are not so emollient that they have the tendency to slide off of my lips. Once applied they really stay put for many hours. Each Lip Definer includes a sharpener, and it should be noted that the shape of the pencil itself is square (a novel design detail that prevents it from rolling away). I think that these are quite lovely, and I want more of them!
Nude Beige is a stunning nude honey beige with gorgeous pearl.
Rosewood is a beautiful rosy brown nude.
