This jumbo pencil is supposed to be an invisible lip liner that you apply before the lipstick in order to smoothen the surface the lips and to prevent "running" of the lipstick outside lip borders. I bought it on a whim (Germany, Aachen) and I forget to use it all the time. It has nice, thick waxy texture (bee wax and cocoa butter) and it simplifies lipstick application. You will need a huge pencil sharpener for this product and the only one that did the job was by p2. I do not remember the prices, but you can rest assured they were both very cheap. Would I repurchase? No, probably not, it is not a must have :-).
