Penultimate Eye Liner
Didn't live up to its name!
I normally am a big fan of Mac products, but this eyeliner just falls short. I wanted a marker pen like eyeliner to make cat eyes easier hence I got it in color rapid black. You have to squeeze the product out first practice over your hands then start on your eyes. But as I normally wear eyeshadow( cream/powder) you have to go over the line many times to make it look darker , at the price of swiping off much of my shadow over the lid. So I'm really not impressed at all!
I don't recommend at all
Firstly the colour is completely wrong, usually black eyeliners are a jet black shiny colour this is a matte dull black... its slightly grey-ish and looks as if its running out.
Also, its not as easy to apply as has been made out. I'll stick to gel eyeliner's, I do not recommend this at all.
I've been debating whether I should rate this as four or five stars because, really, I'd honestly give it a 4.5.
I love MAC, so I was excited about this eyeliner - it's definitely a very good eyeliner that gives solid colour, but it's just not quite as easy to use as it makes out. You couldn't simply sweep it across your lashes for that perfect fluid line as described - it's very much like any other pen-style eyeliner, and while it is definitely easier to use than a liquid eyeliner, I'd say that more concentration is required than if you were using a gel/cream eyeliner brush, for example. Basicallly, the pen would tug on your eyelid if you were to try and achieve a line in one stroke, so I personally prefer the brush application in an eyeliner.
That said, it is a very nice formula that lasts all day, a crisp line can be achieved (even if it takes longer than expected) and can be used to make a very thin or thick line. I like this eyeliner to create a cat-eye flick on the top lash line and then a tiny line downwards in the inner corners to give a sexy, vampy look - pleased with purchase and would buy again.
Best by far
I have used many different eyeliners and this one is the easiest to use. It gives a dramatic or demure look which is easy to create. Very good value for money lasting a long time.
I used this previously & thought it was awful as it smudged off however used over a primer base, mac pigment shadow & voila it lasts all day!
very pleased with this purchase
this eye liner was great beacause it was more like a pen went on so easy ! just what i was looking for . will stick with this from now on .
waste of money!!!!!!
very faint! deffinatly not the ultimate precise bold line!
Not what i was expecting
I purchased this eyeliner after reading the great reviews on it, so i was expecting it to be amazing.. but it is far from it. I love mac make up but this really does let them down. It smudges easily and has come off by the end of the day. i had a cheap collection 2000 one and thats 10 times better then this.
