The ultimate soft-on liner, Eye Kohl lines and defines eyes with rich color and a silky-smooth, matte/pearl finish. The long-wearing formula is great for lining the inner eye rim, smudging around the eyeline for a smoky look, or applying over the entire eyelid for mega color.
Love Smolder (black) and Fascinating (white)...Has great staying power!
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.
At first I was on the fence about this shade as it swatched with a red undertone against my nc45 skintone. So I left it behind and bought another liner. What a huge mistake!!! After consulting with a few BL members I was informed it would perfect on me. So a few hours later back to the counter I went. And they were 110% correct. Beautiful shade that makes my eyes POP!! Smudged gives me a quick look that will be great for those mornings I gotta dash out. Definitely will repurchase.
While going to Mac to buy the 6 eyeshadow pallet snow globe in the color set Sultry from the Glitter and Ice collection I thought I could use some new eyeliners (I usually go for a black on the upper lash line and white on the bottom) and while usually I don't go for mac eyeliners I bought one in Smolder and Fascinating. I love how creamy and pigmented they are however the black faded a little and the white turned more into a silver. I found it better when I used Smolder that if I lined in half way and used an angled brush to smudge the rest out. Same with Fascinating. All in all I think they are really good products. Great for every day. Just don't use too much because I said. Smolder will fade and Fascinating will turn a bit silverish.
I love how soft this eyeliner is. I find that black is too harsh for my skin-tone and eye color, but this brown brings out the best in both. I recently also bought this in Smolder and while I love the richness of it, it is RIDICULOUSLY smudgy. The first time I used it, it got all over my fingers somehow! I recommend using it with a eyeliner sealer or over an eye shadow base. I think I'm getting the hang of it. I love these pencils, definitely recommend.
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?
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.
I never use liner in the water line, so my opinion is stated, from using it on the upper lash line and beneeth the lower lashes. On my eyes it lasts all day long.
I have had this since february, and I have used it a ton, is so easy, a true no-brainer to use every day. This is standard for my everyday looks, because it always look good. Heavily applied or just drawn along the upper lash line. A must for every girl. Lovely product.
You can't be a MAC lover without owning this! It's one of their most famous products, and is a must have in your make-up bag.
If you're not familiar with it, it's a soft intense black pencil.
I wouldn't really recommend it if you're a person who likes a thin line of black eyeliner, cause this doesn't stay sharp for long because of the tenderness of the kohl and gives you more of a thicker line. Great for the waterline and tightlining, though!
I would recommend maybe using an angled brush (like the 266) to apply it if you want a more controlled and more precise line - And then setting it with a powder to prevent it from smudging, if you don't like that look, as this is obviously an easy to smudge pencil.
But yeah, I can not imagine myself living without this.
