Amazing
Tags +Long wearing
I have never really been a makeup wearer but I saw a friend with the "Pure Show" (gold). I fell in love and purchased the "Nocturnal" (silver) as well.
Nocturnal is my favorite. It is easy to apply and dries quickly and does not flake or smudge.
I sweat a lot and this just stays, yet it amazes me how easy it is to clean. Just rub with a bit of water.
I tried a cheap brand from a local pharmacy and it runs before it even dries!

Bold black, and truly long-lasting
Tags +Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
I'm usually running very busy, 12-hour work days, and I needed a black liquid liner that would last just as long. I can't live without this product!! Upon application, it does take a few extra seconds to dry, but I don't mind that marginal difference. (It actually helps on those occasions when my hand gets a little unsteady and I can correct any small mistakes.) I don't have particularly oily skin, but at the end of 12 hours, there is definitely oil interacting with my makeup---and yet, I haven't had any issues with this product flaking or smearing. The consistency of the liner is just right for me: runny enough for me to make bold strokes when I angle the brush, but thick enough to hold its precision. This is one of the truest blacks, in terms of product pigment, that I have used.

Terrible, save your money
I bought this eyeliner at Toronto Pearson's airport because I was running out of my old one and I didn't have time to go to the mall. The lady at MAC told me that although it's not waterproof, it is water resistant and recommended me this one because the original one I wanted (Liquidlast) was not in stock. I bought it and hated it. It's very runny and takes a while to set. I blinked like 30 seconds later and the eyeliner went on my lower lash line. Second, it does not last long and it unfortunately cracks within a few hours.It leaves a crumbly mess for me in the inner corner of my eye and looked terrible and was annoying to fix. I wish I saved my money and bought a drug store one instead. Save your money!!

In Love with this Eyeliner
Tags +Color true, Long wearing
I have been using Boot Black Liquid eyeliner by MAC for a very long time but I realize that it smug and smears throughout the day. Finally, I tried "On The Hunt" Superslick Liquid Eyeliner and fell in love instantly! It only took me two tries to master the application. It stays on without smearing unless you wash it off with soap or any makeup remover. I fell asleep with it on one night and when I woke up the next morning the liner was still on my eye lid as if I had just applied it. Amazing product! I still like boot black but on the hunt is definitely my new favorite!

Pure Show
Tags +Bold Color, Long wearing
I do understand what people are saying about the flaking but i didn't find that it actually flaked until i was trying to wash it off. I got the shade pure show and it is so amazingly pigmented and metallic. It's a very yellow gold that looks a bit like gold foil. I put a dark shadow very close to my lashes and used this liner to make a dramatic graphic line with a wing and ran some 3/4 of the way along my bottom lash line. Lots and lots of mascara top and bottom, coral cheeks and sheer lips made such a gorgeous summer evening look. I might pick up the silver as well.

Expected more
Tags +Bold Color, Long wearing
When I first got this, I love how easy it was to apply. But as another reviewer stated, I also have oily lids and this would flake off onto my face after a while. The flakes were hard to scratch off too so you have to be very careful, just wait until you can get home to remove them with a good makeup remover.
Sometimes after applying, I feel as though it sticks to my eyelined portion of my eyelid to the upper part of my eyelid, right underneath my brow bone! Maybe I'm not waiting long enough for it to dry but it acts sticky all day on one eye or the other. Not sure what I'm doing wrong or if that's just a defective one I received.

Loved This!
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing
This was my favorite liquid eyeliner I have ever used. I got it in the brown color and used it every single day. For the most part this eyeliner was easy to apply. After about 3 weeks this eyeliner started to dry up inside the bottle and I could no longer use it. I was very upset. So I went to the near by mall so I could buy more but I found out they are discontinuing the brown color. I found this very disappointing.

Flakes off
Although some of the other reviews said this liner was flakey, I.bought it because the color (brown) was pretty & unique. It flaked on me as well! So I returned it. It also takes a while to dry.

Love Superslick. experiemented with another brand
Tags +Long wearing, Bold Color, doesn't dry out, lasts forever
I've been using this eye liner for years and the blue color is my favorite. It's the perfect shade that makes my green eyes pop. It lasts forever and doesn't dry out quickly like a lot of other liquid eyeliners. My only issue with it and this is minor, is that it could be easier to use, to control if it were shaped more like a pen. I know MAC makes one shaped like a pen, but it's too dry for me. So I've learned to get pretty good at the Superslick eyeliner over the years, although some days I still make a mess. I was in the hospital in 2012 and made my mom run downtown to buy me more ( it was my birthday). I have a couple other shades and have tried other liquid eyeliners, but they're not the same. I ran out out of my blue one this fall and was improvising with black until I had time to do a massive cosmetics shopping trip. Sadly the only time I could go was on a Saturday and MAC was packed. I wandered off to a nearby beauty megastore, which I needed to visit anyway. They had a huge case of " their favorite liquid eyeliners" at the front of the store. I tried them all. Only a few brands came in blue as well as black. The shades of blue didn't seem quite right and many of the samples seemed to be drying out. Finally I found a brand that I liked. The shade of blue was pretty, and it wasn't too dry. It cost ten dollars more than the MAC eyeliner, but I didn't want to go back and wait in line. When I got the new eyeliner home and tested it out on my eyes, it was okay but not great. It felt really dry compared to Superslick and the blue just wasn't as perfect. Needless to say, I had hoped it would be easier to use since it was shaped like a pen but not so much. It's going back to the store. And I'm buying my favorite eyeliner online ( no lines, no crowds). I think I've been using it since 2009. My experiment with another brand was not worth the price and( is not worth the) hassle of having to return the item. Wish I had stuck with MAC in the first place.

I absolutely adore this eyeliner. The felt tip allows for a really nice application, and the description isn't lying when it says it dries in 15 seconds. I use this at a minimum of three times a week. I'll definitely keep buying.

I'll pass
i don't like this liner at all...the only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I like the applicator brush. The liner is so thin, it's practically impossible to get a straight line and I feel like I am applying too much. It takes too long to completely dry and flakes throughout the course of the day. Absotively posilutely not worth the money!

eeehhhhhhh...
Tags +Smudgeable
I'm not sure if it's my eyes, but the Superslick eyeliner in On the Hunt just didn't do it for me. I love MAC products, but this one is a bit iffy for me. Maybe I let it sit around for a while, because I had issues with the product consistency while i was applying it today. It just seemed off. Small sections on my eyelid were patchy from lack of color. It seemed fine when I used it before.
My only thing with the product in the past was that it smudged easily. Like I stated earlier, maybe it's my eyes, since my eyelids tend to get sweaty/oily and of course any eye makeup smudges off. Also, it comes off kind of chunky with remover. Sometimes it looked like I could peel the line right off my lids when removing it.
