More to Love lip pencil is a bright blue pink colour that will go very well with my bright pink lipsticks, and Positively Dashing is a medium berry pink (or according to Mac "mid-tone berry blue-red"). They both go on really smooth and they are nicely pigmented. Positively Dashing has a slightly sticky texture, I guess that makes it longer lasting than regular lipstick. It's not unpleasantly sticky, but definitely noticable. I didn't find it drying though, which is often a drawback of longlasting lip products, so that's a plus. As for how longlasting they really are, I have not worn More to Love yet, but I did swatch it on my hand and it took quite a bit of rubbing to get it off. I have worn Positively Dashing and it lasted for about 4 hours with drinking and eating (just snacks though, not a main meal). The lip pencils cost £14 each and the lip cremes cost £15.50, and are available from maccosmetics.co.uk and debenhams.com. I have heard conflicting information on whether the products in this collection are permanent or not, some counters think the eyeshadows are going to be permanent, some think it's the lip products. I think all the products would be a nice addition to the permanent line.
