It comes in a standard MAC packaging with a coloured end, so that the pencils are easy to locate. It is not a twist-up pencil, but a mechanical pencil, so it needs to be sharpened. There is no problem in the sharpening of this pencil, but there is some product wastage through that.

My Take on MAC Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner Crayon – Undercurrent:

This pencil is the best eyeliner I have.  I am absolutely in love with it. Undercurrent is a very gorgeous teal green color with golden and green shimmer. The shade is very gorgeous. I have never seen such a beautiful green eyeliner in other brands. The base color is cooler, more blue based, but the shimmer is warm green and gold. It will complement blue and brown eyes a lot. I have never tried to use it on the waterline because of glitter.

The pigmentation is absolutely superb. A single swipe without pressing it hard and it gives an intense color. This eyeliner has incredibly soft and smooth texture. It is very creamy and glides on the eyelids like butter, without any effort. There is no tugging or pulling of eyelids. After a few seconds of application, it sets into a waterproof and smudgeproof finish.

The staying power is absolutely brilliant. It stays on my oily eyelids till night without any primer. The glitter doesn’t spread all over the lids. There is no patchiness or flaking. It can be easily removed with an oil-based makeup remover.
