I just got over with all the excitement of my birthday. So, I thought I would go back to reviewing the products that I have tried. Today, I will be reviewing one of MAC’s liquid eyeliners. This is the most basic eyeliner that they have.
A liquid eye liner formula packaged with a unique applicator for precision application. Liquid Eye Liner is the perfect product for lining and defining the eyes. Use it to subtly enhance or create bold lines. Because it’s ideal for creating graphic designs anywhere on the face and body, don’t limit the use of Liquid Eye Liner to the eye area. The firm, tapered tip of the applicator is easy to control and allows for a quick and precise application of the liner. Liquid Eye Liner is long-wearing, smudge-resistant and can be easily removed with Pro Eye Makeup Remover.
My Experience with MAC Liquid Eyeliner in Boot Black:
I got this eyeliner with the impression that everything from MAC is always good. I had seen a newly-opened MAC store in a neighbouring city, but I thought that the MAC prices here were a bit more than in the USA. So, I asked someone to get it from the US. Little did I know that I should have chosen it myself.
The first time that I tried this eyeliner, I found it to be sort of grayish rather than a deep black. Still, I thought that I would anyhow work with it and hence I used it a few times. One other thing that I noted was that it sort of stung my eyes. My eczema was sort of bad that time and wearing this made me feel sort of uncomfortable, so I quit using it and started using Lotus Herbals Liquid Liner and Physicians Formula Liner.
Then, I sort of forgot that I even had this liner until a few days back when I started using it again. The tip is a fat and short type of a tip, so its neither super easy nor super difficult to work with it.
I just have to add that this is the first liquid eyeliner I have seen that smudges. I accidentally rubbed my eyes one day and the black liner was all over my hands. It was crazy. My hands were all black. Also, this liner shows up sort of grey and not an intense black. If you try putting it on top of a dark eyeshadow you will notice that its not that black. If you don’t rub your eyes, this lasts pretty long being a liquid eyeliner.
All in all, I have started using it again because I don’t want it to go waste. I hate when any of my make up products expire before they are used up fully. So, I am giving it another shot and I am liking it much better than I used to.
Let’s sum up the review into the pros and cons:
