Elf lip lock pencil

I got the Elf lip lock pencil last year on a massive order when they had 50% off sale on studio products. This is the only "lip lock" product I've tried so far, so I don't have anything to compare against.


Elf's description:
   Keep your lipstick, lip gloss and lip liner from feathering, traveling or budging with the smooth glide  Lip Lock Pencil. Your lip color stays locked in place for continuous wear. The colorless formula is perfect for any skin tone and fills in fine lines around the lip.

Directions: 
   Twist up pencil (no sharpening required) and trace the area outside your natural lip line prior to lip color application to create an invisible barrier for your lip products.


Pros:
- price, only $3
- size & amount: its something that will easily fit in your purse or makeup baggie. the pencil is tick, so there is plenty of product to use.
- I have used it when wearing red or vibrant shades of pink and it does help to keep lipstick, gloss & lip liners in place.  
-when using it with vibrant or dark shades of lip products it makes your lip shape more defined and gives a crisp / sharpen look without looking harsh.
- formula is very resistant. I've had it for a long time and considering how hot & humid weather get in Puerto Rico it haven't melt or get hard
- its shape makes applying it almost dummy proof! LoL its like using a crayon.
- haven't notice any weird scent.
- no flakiness or dryness on my lips or the lip product I applied on top.


Cons:
- packaging resistance: sometimes the cap fells off and the pencil itself is loose on the tube.


other things to consider: when applying if you press it too hard, it might leave a white line on your lips. not visible on pictures but it does look weird in person. It has a waxy consistency so it will slide just fine with gentle pressure. If you did applied it heavily just blend it with your ring finger. Its supposed to be clear but I don't know if it would be noticeable on darker skin tones.
