Ever since I remember I am obsessed with pencil eyeliners. but because of my oily lids they all lie in my drawer most of the time. or I use them to create smokey eyes. there are very very few eyeliners which I can actually use on my eyes without them travelling to my upper lids or me having raccoon eyes
SO when a product like this catches my fancy, I grab it with both hands… and in this case I literally grabbed this from another girl!
These MAC Pearlglide Intense eyeliners came out as part of the MAC Vera Collection for Spring 2012. And they are Limited edition. [my 2nd limited edition catch.. yayyyy]
MAC says: An eye pencil that provides rich, luxurious colour with a touch of shimmer and sparkle. Soft, smooth, creamy formula glides on for a perfectly intense line, yet its soft texture allows you to blend. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof.
The shade: Petrol Blue is a brightened navy blue with blue and light blue sparkle.
Size: 1.2 g / .04 US oz for US$15.00
It comes in 7 delightful shades and you can find more about them HERE.
My experience with PEtrol Blue: [I haven't seen the color of petrol -ever. is it blue?] MAC Pearlglide Intense eyeliners have an incredibly soft texture and blend so easily. That’s what I love the most about them, their creamy formula that never pulls on the delicate eye skin area. They also glide without effort on the upper or lower lash lines. I dont even have to pull my lid like I do with others.
Once they set they don’t move or smudge, and they stay put for over 8+ hours!! Yes, can you imagine that?! I can say with confidence these are my perfect eyeliners.
I am so damn impressed by MAc pencil liners. I use MAC TechnaKohl Liner Graphblack and Jadeway (reviewed here)
and I was already impressed. the other day I went to get a bronzer/blush and came across this baby. I just swatched it and roamed about and swatched other things and did some stuff. when the MUA gave me a wet wipe to clean my hand and this thing just wouldn’t budge. I wiped like 4-5 times and then it went. So what do I do? I scream yayyynesss and ask her to get me one like right then and there and to think of it.. most of them were sold out and only the brown and this one was available. A girl was interested in this one but I made the SA give it to me…
[BTW- a special mention of the MUA Elizabeth who was super awesome, beautiful and had amazing eye makeup which I’m going to copy very soon. ]
These are very pigmented liners and packed full of sparkle but finish any look of really nicely especially on a pastel matte shadow. They are soft and butter and there is no tug on your eyelid when you are applying them.
So before I go on and on about how I love these once and might ask one of them for dinner, let me sum it up:
- Smooth, soft eyeliner with rich, intense shades that glide on easily.
- They just don’t smudge or budge.
- They are compared to the Urban decay 24/7 eyeliners.
- Very lovely vibrant shades.
- They work better than most gel liners available in the market today.
- Totally worth the hassle..
- I swear to god I love them.
- We want more colors.
- These are limited edition MAC please make them permanent!!
- Since these are very glittery,I wouldn’t want to apply this on my waterline. Although the MUA suggested its waterline safe.
- They are $15.
Verdict: If its available in ur vicinity, grab with whatever u can. trust me. they are the dope! I want to get at least 2 more but I’ve got so much MAC in this month that I’m feeling guilty now *chewsnails*
Will I repurchase? I will. Black line – Black with gold pearl .
P.S. I applied this liner on a very special MAC e/s at 11am and now its 5:30pm. I have cooked, cleaned, danced and it has NOT budged. I swear to God I wanna dance. also, I officially hate Inglot MUAs now. I don’t think I’m going back there.
