FINALLY!!!
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing
Well I finally found it!! The perfect eyeliner for my color eyes. I am 64 and felt I needed to start wearing liner to accent my eyes more (never did before). I have blue-grey eyes and had great difficulty in finding the right shade. Black.........no, brown...........no, navy..........no, grey.............no, nothing seemed to enhance the color of my eyes, until now. After 2-3 years of experimenting with different colors, I finally found the perfect shade. I bought Auto-De-Blu on the fact that it was advertised as a grey/blue shade. I received it today and when I opened the package I thought, "here we go again! Too dark!" But I was wrong, it is perfect. Not too dark or too light, definitely noticeable but not overwhelming. I LOVE IT!!

MAC's Technokohl - the only one for me!
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, Bold Color, getting just the right eyeline.
MAC's Technokohl is the ONLY eyeliner for me! Every other eyeliner that I wear smears and I end up looking like a raccoon, but I found this a few years ago and now this is all I wear. It stays in place, can do a thin line or a thick one, and always looks just perfect. I try to keep one in my makeup bag and a back up and to order one as soon as my open one runs out. I tell all my friends about it and that this is the best eyeliner out there.

I bought the "snowed in" to put on my waterline. Wow! It really brightens my eyes! Doesn't last quite as long as I would like, but it does leave a light shimmer that lasts all day. Will definitely buy again.

LOVE IT!!!!
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing, watery eyes
My eyes water terribly. I dealt with eye liners coming off for years until I googled the problem and read an online forum. They recommended MAC so I tried it. I will never use anything else. For the first time in years my eyeliner stays on all day. The clerk recommended I apply the paint pot eye shawdow over my entire lid first and then my eye shadow and, lastly, the eyeliner. The paint pot eye shadow acts as a "glue" and holds everything on. I only use MAC on my eyes now!

STAYS PUT-FIRST TIME EVER!!
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color, everyone
I haven't tried eyeliner pencils in years as I just gave up, till now. I went to Macys and put a line of SuperFly on my hand. After hours of shopping and taking the train home the line was still there like new. I rubbed my finger across it many times and it did not smudge so I bought it. It actually stays under my eyes as a liner for hours at a time and I have oily skin. So easy to apply ,it just glides on. I'm hooked.

Breaks off all the time
Tags +Bold Color, Long wearing
Submitted this review before but Mac screened it out - hopefully it'll come through this time. I have had this eyeliner in graphblack for a month. I've used it 5-6 times. The first time, the tip broke off right away. Then another time, it broke off twice before I could use it. That discouraged me from using it (I have another eyeliner as well) but today I tried to use it and the tip broke off again. I am not at all new to using retractable eyeliners, so I was not using too much force or stretching it out too much - just enough! I initially purchased this hoping to save money since it's half the price of eyeliners from luxury brands - but if I used this I'd end up having to spend even more money on replacements since it breaks all the time! It does look good and dark when it goes on and it doesn't fade more than any other eyeliner - but it's not practical because of breakage.

I love this eyeliner!!! It goes on smooth, but not really thick. It doesn't irritate or dry out my eyes when I apply it to my water lines like I have experienced with some other eyeliners.

stays put
Tags +Waterproof, Long wearing
I was looking for an eyeliner that would stay on my upper and lower water lines, and this did the job. It went on smooth and not slippery. I was out all day and the eyeliner didn't budge or smudge even when I put in eye drops.

59 years
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color
I am 59 years old. We have cold winters and muggy summers. For some reason eye makeup disappears or ends up under my eyes. I have tried the majority of the eyeliners on the market and the MAC Technakohl liner outlasts them all in every weather condition.
Wonderful, wonderful product

Best Waterline Eyeliner
SHADE NAME: Risqué
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
I hate lining my waterline because the eyeliner usually smudges like crazy by the end of the day. I bought this in the colour Risque to brighten up my eyes and to make them less tired. I bought it in a light colour so that if it did smudge, it wouldn't make too much a a mess. I was really surprised that the eyeliner lasted me all day and i rub my eyes a lot!! Thinking of buying the jade green to add some colour to my very neutral day to day look

My Only Liner!
Tags +Bold Color, Long wearing
I have been through many different eyeliners but this is by far my favorite. It stays on great and doesn't smudge. It may fade after a while but you won't end up with raccoon eyes.

Fantastic!
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color, great pigment, tightlining, brows, natural looks, lower lashline
I love this product! probably one of my fav mac products. This liner is great for lining the lid for a subtle look and will stay all day. Or it is great to blend out with your shadow. It glides on so well and the colour pigment is fantastic. The only thing is i bought the brown border shade and it does not look good on the waterline but it does on the lower lashline. Hope this helped!

SHADE NAME: Graphblack
The absolute worst eyeliner for your waterline. I am highly disappointed in the product, for I put it on and just 3 hours later, there was no product left on my waterline. I have bought drugstore $3 eyeliners and they last longer on the water liner than this. It is also not as black as I was hoping. I have nothing good to say about this product.

Amazing!!
Tags +Waterproof, Bold Color, Smudgeable, Long wearing, all your eye-lining needs!
I was a little skeptical because of a video review I saw on YouTube of this product. I've heard everyone rant and rave about the eye kohl in smolder, but I wanted to try a Mac twist-up eyeliner. Absolutely fantastic. Lasts me from 7am until midnight or later and doesn't budge. It lasts through my gymnastics training and watery eyes! Will re-purchase!!! :)

Exactly what you want a liner to be
Tags +Waterproof, Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color, creating a beautiful eye
My eyes require some sort of liner. My problem with every liner I have ever purchased has been that they never stayed put. That changed when a Mac artist introduced me to this product. It glides on and can be smudged or smoked, then it stays until you take it off. I have never been able to find anything that did not give the raccoon eyes, and liner that would deposit itself in the corner of your eye socket, decidedly gross. This product is beyond the best! I have the purple dash ( gorgeous with my auburn hair and brown eyes) and graphblack. Will continue to purchase these two colors and experiment with new colors as well.
