I love this eyeliner.. yes it smudges but I recently switched n tried the Stila eyeliner its horrible u have to sharpen everytime n its smudges under the eyes like 100 times worse than MAC sooo im switching back to MAC!
I love how black and creamy this liner is. It glides on beautifully. However, on me, this pencil smudges like crazy. I cannot wear it on the bottom lash line, because before I know it, it's all over my under eye area. I'd much rather use my milani liquif-eye pencil which is just as black and creamy.
Very soft pencil
My makeup purse hasn't been without Teddy for almost 10 years. It's the perfect brown to pep up your eyes, thanks to the bronze sparkle which is a pretty alternative to regular old brown. The pencil is really soft so it goes on easily, never drags.
My only gripes are that it's so soft that it smudges - as nice as it looks when I first put it on, I know that it'll soon end up on my eyelid. Still, even that isn't a bad look! Also, lately I've had trouble with the lead just breaking off after every sharpening, which is a big waste :s
worlds favourite kohl
im pretty sure this is used in every youtube tutorial i watch.. for good reason.. its very inky and beautiful.. but i find it drips a bit under the eye area.. anyone else have this problem?
Love Smolder (black) and Fascinating (white)...Has great staying power!
Beautiful creamy black, but smudges too much for my taste.
Smolder is a really gorgeous and intense inky black. It applies really well on the skin and is perfect for smokey and dramatic eye looks. Unfortunately, on my oily eye lids, it smudges. A lot. Even with Urban Decay's Primer Potion as a base. I think it's because black liners just have more pigment, or perhaps they are more oil-based than the lighter colors?
If you don't really have an issue with oily eyelids or you just like the smudgy, grungy look, then this is a great product for you. Use Smolder to line the upper and lower lash line, then take a smudger brush like the MAC 219 or NARS Smudge brush and smoke the product, blending away from both lashlines. Use Smolder to line the lower waterline of your lashes for an intense sultry look. Top with waterproof mascara and you're good to go for a night out!
Pretty Golden olive kohl
Rosemary & Thyme is a really beautiful golden olive shade shot through with gold shimmer. The texture is creamy, smooth, and never tugs or skips on my eyelids. For $14.50 you get a pretty long eye pencil which will last you at least a year with pretty heavy use.
This golden olive shade makes my eyes sparkle and brings out their olive gold bits. Even though this is technically an eye liner, I love smudging this and blending it out all over the lid with a beigey-gold eye shadow over the crease and brow bone. Otherwise, I love smudging it around the eyes with a taupey green toned shadow (Try MAC Sweet Sienna Pigment) on the lid for a subtle smokey green look.
Gorgeous golden brown pencil
Teddy is a stunning rich chocolate with copper undertones, shot through with gold shimmer. It feels really creamy on, and for some reason, doesn't smudge as much as the other MAC Kohl's I've tried. Perhaps it's because most of those have a black base and this is a lighter color overall. I love wearing this on the lid as a base for bronze eye shadows (especially MAC Mulch eye shadow). It brings out the gold in my eyes and is PERFECT in summer paired with a shiny coral lip gloss (I love Chanel Glossimer in Sirop). This is such a unique and pretty shade and is definitely worth a look, for every eye color.
Deep brownish burgundy with plum shimmer
The name says it all. Prunella does remind me of the shade of prunes: brownish, plum-ish, burgundy-ish, all with a hint of plum shimmer. It applies creamy and smoothly and is a nice subtle compliment to my brown eyes. I love wearing it on the lashline smudged up with a shimmering neutral wash (like Stila Starlight eye shadow or MAC Shroom). The lasting power isn't excellent, but if I keep it on the upper lashline and away from the lower outer corner, it stays on better. It's not a totally unique color to have, but it's a nice quick pencil to line eyes when you're in a hurry. I think this would look way better on different colored eyes, the plum would pop on blue eyes! It's $14.50 for a long pencil that will last a long time, even with daily use. Give it a shot at the counter and see if this is the shade for you. It didn't necessarily work on me, but it's a solid product, nonetheless.
