MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil ($14.50) Waterproof. Longwearing. Metallic, shimmer and matte finishes. Smooth to apply. Won’t transfer, smudge, or budge… Draws the line: powers your eyes. Makes its point. Lasts.
I like MAC Powerpoint, but I don’t love it. It’s a waterproof pencil eyeliner that glides on very smoothly. The staying power is great and so is the pigmentation. I do have to touch up about half way through the day. The reason why I don’t love it is because you can’t really apply it to your waterline. The color doesn’t really transfer onto your waterline.
MAC Fluidline ($15) Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes.
This is one of the best gel liners I have used to date. Usually gel liners will dry out within a couple months, but the Fluidline hasn’t dried out and it’s been a few (maybe several) months. It’s still soft and creamy as the first time I used it. If you want the same precision you get when you use a liquid liner but need a quicker and easier way to achieve it try this gel liner. Not only is it true to the color in the jar and long lasting, but it is very easy to apply. I didn’t experience any smudging or fading, and I have oily lids. I highly recommend Fluidline. It’s a bit expensive for a small jar, but you really don’t need to use a lot when you apply since it’s so pigmented. Just remember to screw on the lid when you’re not using it, and it won’t dry out quickly.
MAC Eye Kohl ($14.50) A soft-on pencil liner that lines, defines and shades the eyes with rich colour and a silky-smooth, matte/pearl finish. Ophthalmologist tested.
This eyeliner goes on super smooth and is pigmented. It does smudge (it is a kohl pencil) so be sure to use a primer or set it with powder to prevent it smearing. I wouldn’t repurchase it though because even though I use a primer, it smudges quite a bit. I love how creamy, smooth it is. I just wish it had great staying power.
