MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil – Prussian Review

My complexion is on the pale side, so I always prefer colored eyeliners as opposed to stark black, and blue has always been my weakness or rather strength.  In my opinion, it gives a softer effect to the face while adding a pop of hue. I am in love with blue pencils for as long as I remember and at any given point of time, I have at least two with me. Although, I regret not buying the Chambor ones.  Prussian is a darkened blue with a subtle violet edge.

My Experience with MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil – Prussian:

I am in MAC almost every month, that’s my guilty pleasure :P This time, I went to get a LE lipstick and while loitering around, found this.  Blue liner is like my neutral, so I was more than happy to take it home.  The color payoff is very rich and it goes on soft and creamy. It applies very nice and opaque in one swipe, absolutely no hassles. It takes a few seconds to set and then it stays put, especially on the lower lash line, it stayed and stayed.

I went and frolicked all evening in a mall and it was there. Not so much on the upper lid though. I have oily lids, so it transfers in an hour, but it stays for a couple hours if I layer blue shadow on top of it. The MAC MUA said it resembles wave line gel liner a lot.

I sometimes swipe an angled brush on the tip and press it closer to the lash line to get a “not-tried-so-hard-but-I’m-a-stylo” kind of look. This is one of MAC’s products which makes the brand what it is.

Summing it up:

Yayys of MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil – Prussian:

  • It’s such a lovely blue. Not dark like black and not greenish.
  • Has a great staying power.
  • Really creamy, really pigmented.
  • It’s practically a neutral for me, goes with almost everything I wear, even pinks and oranges.
  • This is a product which will get you going when you are late and don’t want to make an effort, but still look polished.
  • I loved it, so I’m biased :P

Nays of MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil – Prussian:

  • $16.50 with tax *sob sob*
  • The sharpening wastes so much product.
  • I’m guessing this is dupable, but I’m not sure.

Verdict:

I will definitely repurchase this and recommend it too. I give it 4 stars – deducting 0.5 for the cost and 0.5 for the wastage while sharpening.
