MAC Eye Pencil

A liner that's comfortable to apply and sharpens to a fine, precise point.

This is a horrible eye pencil, I have to run it under hot water or heat to melt it a bit in order for the color to apply it, it's not soft at all and does not glide on easily at all

Just Bad
It is very dry and does not go on the eye unless you really tug. You have to warm it up somehow to get it to work. It sweats off and I constantly have to wipe around my eye so that it doesn't look like a mess. It's a complete waste of money, and I would use my $2 drugstore liners over this any day.

Color transfers...
Tags +Bold Color
I probably need an eyeshadow primer or something, but I don't like using them, and this pencil's color transfers to other parts of my eyelid. I hesitate to use it on a daily basis for this reason and will only use it for things like recording a video. I can check my makeup repeatedly that way.
It applies beautifully though, and the color is just great. It's probably really great for smudging too - I can tell by the formula.

NICE!
Tags +Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color, everyone
l like this eyeliner because it is not as harsh looking like black can be. A great liner to support more of a natural look if that is what you are going for. Stays on pretty good.

Bold Color, but not Long Lasting
Tags +Bold Color, Smudgeable, Creamy
The first eye liner I got from mac was ebony eye pencil and when I tried it on, I thought wow the black is so bold! However, as the day went on, I realized that the eye pencil wore off and that bold effect was gone. I think it's safe to say that the eye pencils aren't very long lasting, but I have to agree that they are creamy and glide on perfectly without any tugging. The eye pencils are best for smokey eyes because they are smudgeable, but if you want an eye liner for your waterline or one that is long lasting, I would suggest the eye kohls. In addition, these eye pencils are not waterproof either.

Love love love this!
Tags +Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color
This is my favorite eye liner. It's applies smoothly and evenly, without tugging and skipping. I have this in Ebony, and it provides bold, dramatic color or soft, smoky lines with a bit of smudging. Very versatile, and long- lasting!

Just ehh..
I've been on the hunt forever to find a black eyeliner that stays put on my waterline for more than 20 min. I bought this in hopes that I had found my dream product (you know, being MAC and $16) but I was super disappointed in the product. The black isn't intense at all, which I had hoped for, and I have to sharpen it almost every time I use it because the tip is so soft. Not to mention that I am constantly cleaning up around my eyes because it is not waterproof at all. This eyeliner is no different than one I could find in a drugstore. Still searching for the one... :(

Seriously best eyeliner I have ever tried. Its so smooth and it lasts, which is the best part! You can either go super clean or make it smokey. Either way, AWESOME!

Not the best
Tags +Bold Color
It really doesn't go on easily. I keep using it because I am afraid to waste money on another liner.I reapply often during the day with this. I am looking for something that will not sweat off and look so messy. Just an easy gliding liner that stays put. This does not do that.

Great for everyday makeup

I like the coffee eye pencil for very subtle, non dramatic looks. It isn't as harsh as harsh smolder eye kohl.

I have tried ALL of MAC's pencils and Coffee and Smolder are by far my Fav's! They blend flawlessly, and are great and the waterline.

Indigo Eye Pencil
Tags +Bold Color, Smudgeable
Mac Eye Pencil Indigo Color is very smooth and beautiful. The color is perfect for summer. Though it is smudgeable and very bold color, it is not as long wearing. But I stil it a lot, and I think many people will like it!
