I thought it might be on a roll with DuWop after trying out and liking DoubleGlow 7. Alas, it is not to be. DuWop's Reverse Time lip and eyeliner pencils are utterly pointless. The idea is a good one; matte, colorless pencils that combat signs of aging and smudging and feathering of lipstick or eyeliner. The problem is that they don't. They do nothing to make lines less visible or to hold make up in place.

I didn't like the waxy, silicony texture and I woke up with a couple of spots above my lip. Most of the ingredients are indeed waxes, silicone and acrylic. Apart from some vitamin E, there is not much going for them. The other thing I don't like is being asked to buy two products when they are actually identical.
