What I love about MAC Eye Kohl Teddy?

  • Intensity: It is superbly intense and pigmented colour. you don’t have to worry about buildabilty or anything. Just one glide and you are done.
  • It’s creamy. It glides on the lids like a dream.
  • Non flaky. Sometimes I find that I have to clear the flakes left behind the ye pencils. With this one I foun no such problem.
  • It does not smudge or smear. When I posted my post on Goodies from MAC, the first thing everyone said was MAC Eye Kohls smudge a lot. I also believed in the same notion. I have worn it atleast 10 times already and I found no smudging problems with it. In fact the first two three times I wore it, I used wait for it to smudge and it didn’t. As soon as you apply, it you can smudge it lightly with your finger tips or a Q Tip to give a soft smokey look but after that it sets for the entire day. I cannot claim anything for MAC Eye Kohl – Smolder but atleast Teddy gave me no such problems. I so love it.
  • Teddy is a gorgeous metallic bronzy colour with a light flecks of gold. It’s like my everyday liner these days.
  • It’s a loooong pencil.
  • The tip of the pencils are coloured, makes things easier.
  • It is safe to apply on eyes. Yay! πŸ™‚
  • The pencil does not break while starpening. I sharpen it with my Colorbar sharpener and it just works fine.

Here is the swatch.

I have nothing that I don’t love about these liners. I can wear it as a stark, straight line or as a soft smudged eye liner depending on my mood. Infact I am going to repurchase this and purchase Smolder, Phone number and Fascinating Eye Kohl for sure. πŸ™‚

And since they have an eye pencil called Rosemary and Thyme, I just remembered the songΒ  Scarborough Fair/Canticle” – Simon and Garfunkel.

Looks cute on your eyes Rati πŸ™‚
This color looks like chambor eye pencil #2 – (brown).But it smudges badly on my eyes…


Rati May 22, 2010 at 1:59 pm

I have that eye pencil, Vidhya and it’s pretty crappy and smudges on my eyes as well. Feel so bad about buying it. πŸ™ I only use it as a base sometimes but more or less it’s a complete waste of money.


neha May 22, 2010 at 2:41 pm

you line your eyes very well
must be getting compliments all the time!
all eye colors suit you well


Rati May 22, 2010 at 2:51 pm

I have blackish brown eyes no so it’s easier for me to pull off most colours. I think my most compliments come from you guys. πŸ˜› Thank you. :beauty:


Radhika May 22, 2010 at 2:50 pm

Rati May 22, 2010 at 6:43 pm

loll!! me too. I am not going to select city walk coz I know I would end up buying stuff from the Liberty of London collection.

Smolder might smudge because that is super pigmented but i am anyway going to buy it. In fact i am happy that I tried teddy first and had a good experience. Yay! πŸ™‚

Infact I am resisting bloody hard to not buy the coral blush from Estee lauder Michael Kors collection. kuch nahin ho sakta hamara. :rotfl: :rotfl:

Rati May 23, 2010 at 9:21 am

MAC Devi? Another name? :rotfl: :rotfl:


jomolj May 23, 2010 at 10:13 am

What to do……all these names seems to be falling in place for a sweet darling such as you….but I like POUTmati more than anything πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


Rati May 23, 2010 at 10:47 am

I was taking my piccys yesterday for the lippy review and i was pouting and laughing at the same time. ha ha ha ha


jomolj May 23, 2010 at 10:14 am



ki. May 23, 2010 at 3:15 pm

I have smolder and I LOVE it πŸ˜€

and teddy look droolworthy πŸ˜€
.-= ki.´s last blog ..Upset does not begin to describe how I’m feeling =-.


Rati May 23, 2010 at 6:00 pm

It is gorg!! πŸ™‚


tanveer May 24, 2010 at 3:02 pm

It looks really nice Rati, though it is a little on the lighter side for me. I like my browns to be dark and intense, coz for some reason browns any lighter don’t show up easily on me..

But it sounds like an interesting prdt and I will chk out the other shades in this when I go to the store πŸ˜€


Rati May 24, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Oh! It’s super pigmented. You can increase the intensity as per your liking. πŸ™‚ Do check it out, It’s a very nice products and goes on a long way.

Did you notice where is Prunella coming from? πŸ˜›


Cynthia Zacharica May 24, 2010 at 4:16 pm

Lovely review…i will check this out. Looks a bit too light but maybe it’s just in the pic…lets see



Rati May 24, 2010 at 4:36 pm

It’s just the picture but it’s not one of those deep chocolate brown colour. It’s more bronzy. I think the swatch would give you the closest idea of the colour.


Kasturi September 3, 2010 at 2:18 am

I have smolder..forget bleeds on my eyes.. i rarely use it πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™


Rati September 3, 2010 at 9:41 am

yeah Kasturi, Smolder is a softer pencil than teddy. Infact I went and asked these guys at MAC why people complain about smolder smudging on their eyes while teddy stays pretty well. They made me compare the two pencils. Smolder is super soft and barely has a holding power. It needs to be set with eyeshadow to be able to use it.


mona August 27, 2012 at 11:49 am


great work ya and totally awesome reviews.. i wanna ask one thing that how do u create the soft smudge eye liner look.. wha brush to be used (reasonably priced ones)
