Lifeguard #1
Tags +Waterproof, Bold Color, Long wearing, beach days, lifeguards, long nights out, when you need reaaaally black liner
Out of every MAC product this is probably my top product to write about. The one bad thing about this product is that MAC used to have a whole line of colors in this liner, but they discontinued all of them except this black. I titled this Lifeguard for a reason. I have spent my last 5 summers lifeguarding as well as teaching kids swimming. THIS IS THE ONLY EYELINER I HAVE EVER FOUND TO BE TOTALLY SWIM PROOF. I have gone hours in the pool with this eyeliner and it is the ONLY PRODUCT I HAVE EVER FOUND LIKE IT (and trust me I've looked everywhere) If you want to go to the beach, swim all day and not reapply eyeliner-even after showering off, this is the only product you can depend on. I have spent six hours in a pool getting splashed, going under water and rubbing water out of my eyes, and then gone out straight after without even touching up. This is a MUST for anyone who wants to wear a long lasting ALMOST EVERYTHING PROOF liner. My only problem is none of my other makeup products are quite as water proof so face makeup, mascara and everything else tend to need reapplying. PS to remove slightly oily makeup removers work best. Also if you can't find it in a store, they usually don't have testers out for some reason. Just ask someone who is helping you because they probably have it in a drawer

The ONLY liner my daughter will use....
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, long-lasted; easy to apply; rich in color
Although I personally don't use this product, I feel that I must rate it based on the fact that this is the ONLY eye liner my 21-year-old daughter can or will use. She started using MAC's Liquidlast Liner about 5 years ago; at that time, it was available in quite a few shades - not just black; she used the black, navy blue, and green shades, I believe. Then, about 3 years ago or so, MAC stopped production on the additional shades; only continued to produce it in black. So, my daughter & I started a search for something that she could substitute for the times she likes to wear navy blue or green shades. Honestly, I think I spent close to $150-$200 - she tried every other MAC liner; plus, I think just about every other liner out there in almost every cosmetic line. NOTHING stood up to MAC's Liquidlast Liner. So, what is it about this eye liner? According to my daughter, it is the ONLY liner that she's found that literally lasts ALL day; does NOT flake at all; does not rub off at all; is easy to apply and easy to remove with make-up remover. I should have invested in MAC stock, I think, when I calculate how much I've probably spent over the years just on this liner! Thank goodness for MAC's recycle program!

Being discontinued...
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color
I've been wearing eyeliner for almost 15 years and I have religiously started to use this one 5 years ago when I tried it. I have serious issues with getting raccoon eyes with other eyeliners (and I've tried both cheap and expensive kinds - even other MAC eyeliners), but this is the ONLY ONE that doesn't smudge or run. I became a devotee once I wore it playing sports (sweat dripping, wind in my face) and it doesn't budge. It's not easy to take off, but some remover fixes the problem instantly. I thought my search for the perfect eyeliner was over, but now more than one MAC associate has told me that this eyeliner is being discontinued. MAC has made new eyeliners, but none has the same staying power as this one. MAC, please don't discontinue this product. I really can't afford spending another 10 years searching for its replacement. Also, this eyeliner is the only reason why I walk into your store or go up to the department store counters to begin with.

The only eyeliner I trust
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, Bold Color
I have very oily skin, to the point that ANY eyeliner (pencil or liquid) that states "waterproof" or "long-lasting" seems to be a lie because I end up looking like a raccoon after 4+ hours of it on my eyes.
But MAC's liquidlast liner is one that is incomparable to ANY eyeliner (pencil or liquid). I trust only this eyeliner to last me 15+ hours daily, even after I wash my face (it still stays!).
I've tried countless numbers of other eyeliners (paid a lot of money for the cheap ones and expensive ones) but this is the only eyeliner that stay and comes on smooth. It does not flake or smudge. I can't tell you how much this has eased my mind because I don't need to look in the mirror every few hours to check if I look like a raccoon.

DOES. NOT. BUDGE. EVER.
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, staying power!!
This is exactly what I was looking for. Something that I can wear while playing sports and not have it smudge or run on me. It is a little hard to get off at night, but with the right makeup remover you will be fine.
BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! You will not regret it!

Must have for women who work long hours!
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing
I seriously don't know what I would do without this product. I work for a professional sports team and on game days I'm at the office for 14-16 straight hours. I feel naked without a cat-eye on my upper lid, but no liquid liner I tried would stay on anywhere near that long; they'd always smudge and disappear and just look so awful. I finally went to the MAC counter and asked for help; they recommended the LiquidLast liner to me and it was life-changing. Forget 14-16 hours; I could literally keep it on for days and it would look exactly the same as it did when I first put it on. It does. Not. Budge. It's such a relief never having to worry about my makeup running everywhere or constantly reapplying. I refuse to even try any other product because I know it won't compare to this. It's perfect. Could not recommend it more.

BEST...EYELINER... EVER!!
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, Bold Color
I've used so many different types of eyeliners since this is the only makeup I use. This eyeliner truly lives up to all expectations of being waterproof, smudgeproof and flake proof. I agree with the other reviewers that it is hard to apply. A beginner should not use this as you will be frustrated with the brush. As an eyeliner veteran the brush is not a problem at all. As others have pointed out, it is hard to remove! BUT all you need is baby oil and a cotton pad and it comes right off! Also you can use a Q-tip with a bit of baby oil to correct any mishaps. :) I'm so happy to see this eyeliner back on the website since I've been buying out all the stores after hearing they were discontinuing it.

WILL NOT COME OFF
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing
I bought this liner because I was looking for a new eye liner to use. I was so excited when I got it in the mail I had to instantly put it on as soon as I got it, little did I know this bad boy does not come off no matter what you do and use. I took a shower, I use two brands of make up remover, lotion and last but not least olive oil and this liner didn't even smudge. Finally after scrubbing it for a good 10 minutes it finally came off. The over all quality was good, when I put it on it dried matted and was beautiful but it defiantly not an every day thing. SOOO if you're looking for an eye liner that last probably days I highly recommend this

Liquidlast only in Black?
Tags +Waterproof, Bold Color, Smudgeable, Long wearing
I have oily skin, and the liquidlast eyeliner is the best for my lower lid. How upset I became when I discovered that MAC had re-formulated the liquid liner and only makes Liquidlast in black!!??? The new ones have great colors, but it WAY to watery!!! I do not like it at all! The new liners are like L'Oreal or Maybelline! I need the Liquidlast in colors again! Liquidlast is the best liquid liner on the market, especially for women with oily skin! For like the second time since I've been wearing MAC products, I'm upset with the company! Stop changing good stuff!

Best Liner but need color options
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, Bold Color, long wear, waterproof liner
This is by far the best liner anywhere! My only complaint is that BLACK is the only color option. I am using it regardless of the fact that it is too dark for me because of how well it wears. You can swim, shower, cry, sweat and sleep and this liner will stay put with no signs of smudging or flaking off. It is the only liner that I have found that is truly waterproof.. I just wish they would bring back the other colors that they used to offer.I have spent lots of money trying to find another liner in BROWN that wears like this one with no success. After reading many of these reviews, I see that I am not alone. MAC people-PLEASE bring back the other colors of your Liquid last Eyeliner!

The Best Waterproof Eyeliner!
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, Bold Color
I've searched for years for the best eyeliner out there that wouldn't smudge. I can honestly say I've tried more than 50 different types of "waterproof" eyeliners out there, from really expensive brands to your simple store-bought makeup. For a while I was giving up and thought my oily skin was contributing to the smudging. By midday I'd find myself wiping away eyeliner that was smudged at the corner of my eyes. It was the most frustrating thing that I know other people noticed.
I found this eyeliner on MAC's site and read the reviews. I was a little skeptical but after reading the review from the lifeguard who used it in the pool, I decided to try it out!
I WILL NEVER USE ANOTHER EYELINER AGAIN. I mean, this product is just fantastic. I've cried with this eyeliner on after eating a jalapeno (as a joke), and there was no smudging! I've pushed this stuff to the limits for experimental purposes - at the beach, at the pool, in humid conditions, while working out, etc. etc. It's just wonderful and I highly recommend this stuff!
I hope this is one of those products that is never discontinued!

THE BEST EYELINER EVER!
Tags +Waterproof, Bold Color, Smudgeable, Long wearing, perfect long lasting liner for every look!
I was first sold on M-A-C by the quality and wide selection of shades of lipstick, but this liner was the clincher! Wear it as a crisp classic cat eye, or smudge it for a kohl look.This liner goes on solid, then stays on perfect until you take it off (for 2 days or more if you don't remove it), AND it has a brush applicator, instead of the felt tips that you find every where now. I will never buy another brand of liquid liner again! Please never stop making it!

Tooooooooooooooo bad
Tags +Waterproof, Bold Color, Smudgeable, Long wearing
why would MAC discontinue other shades in the best product on the market. If you guys actually review this - look at your rating and please bring back the Ink. This liner did not move unless it was removed and this coming from someone with oily eye lids. PLEASE BRING AT LEAST A FEW OTHER SHADES BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did I just get a bad one?
Tags +Long wearing
I ordered this online after reading the reviews. I was previously using Penultimate Eye Liner because it was easy to apply and stayed on, but as other user said, it dries out insanely quickly so you go through them way too fast. I switched over to the regular MAC liquid eyeliner, but I ended up with a smudged cat eye EVERYDAY. So I read the reviews for this one and thought, "perfect". However, I hate this eyeliner! It is too thick, and nearly impossible to use (i've been doing cat eyes for 9 years, I've got it down). It gets on my eyelashes and sticks them together and the brush is so flimsy I can never get a good line. Plus, if you mess up, the eyeliner is so dense and hard to remove you have to start your whole eye over again.
I feel like the one I got was really, really thick, so maybe MAC online just sent be a bad product?

I love this liner! How dark it is and how long it lasts. My only downfall with this is the brush, which creates a shaky application. :/

PLEASE DON"T DISCONTINUE
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, Bold Color
I have the worst watery/ sensitive eyes and this eyeliner has been the only product ever to work for me! So you can imagine my fear when I was told it was not being sold anymore and being replaced by the new "superslick"! Please, It is not even close in comparison! In the makeup world this eyeliner is my "ONE TRUE LOVE"!! I'm not saying it's completely easy to put on but once you master it you will love it! So I beg you mac..PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not discontinue this!! It is the only liner of its kind, and "MAC" is the only brand who has mastered it!!

Must Have
Tags +Waterproof, Bold Color, Long wearing
I find this as the perfect eyeliner for anyone who has oily skin. It's the only eyeliner that I have been using since I found out about it a couple years back. It doesn't smudge or make you look like you have a black eye after a couple hours. It's perfect for everyday use! The only thing I don't like about it is it's size. But I think that's just part o f the marketing strategy.

Cat-eye forever... Literally
Tags +Bold Color, Color true, Long wearing
So this hot summer has been brutal on my eyeliner. It would just melt off my face. So I read about this one and tried locating it in NYC stores and completely sold out so I figured must be good. BUT this eyeliner is perfect!!! It never comes off. I shower wash my face and I kid you not the eyeliner is still perfect. I use coconut oil to remove my makeup. It this eyeliner last all day and night.
