MAC Pro Longwear Eye Liner – Black Ice Review

Hi IMBB beauties,

I have lately realized that I cannot do without lining my waterline and tight lining. Either I look very ill or I feel my make-up is incomplete. So, no matter how many black I have in my stash, I tend to pick up promising products. On my last visit to MAC, I picked this especially for my waterline. Read on to know how it fared.



Comes in an outer paper carton just like normal MAC packaging. The pencil has to be sharpened. The cap snugly fits but does not shut with a click. I have no issues with it as I always keep the outer paper carton of my MAC stuff. They are special to me you see. The outer carton has the ingredient list and the dates of manufacture and expiry; also mentions the price.

It is a long sturdy pencil and has total of 1.2 gm, but we lose some product while sharpening. It might be considered as a pro for people who want to use a sharpened tip every time and can be considered a con as we waste a bit of our expensive product.


Glides on smoothly and it is comparatively drier than my Technakohl. I found that to be promising as this meant it would smudge less on my waterline. Nevertheless, it did not bother the pigmentation and the smoothness of the liner.

My Experience with MAC Pro Longwear Eye Liner – Black Ice:

Anything that is MAC is special to me.  I know that is a kind of obsession but when you have a brand that has not yet failed you, it becomes close to heart. I was at MAC for my base makeup when I spotted the prolong wear eye liners. As I always look out for stuff for my waterline, I had to give this a try.

I was sold when the MUA swatched it on my wrist and after a few seconds, I could not rub it off. I took my own sweet time to finalize on the shade but I always reach out for black on my waterline, so I picked this up. There are other gorgeous shades as well in this range and I am already eyeing the brown one. For people who hate to touch up make-up during a long day at work, you have to try this. I am super impressed and in the EOTD, I have nothing on my eye except for the liner on waterline and tight line; that too after a long day at work. For me, a long day is equal to 7-8 hours. Yeah, you read it right, if you do not believe, then give it a try at the store 🙂

Hi Nandini….i have not used Feline but i think if you want a long wear smudge proof pencil you can pick this up without any doubt….


Nandini July 15, 2013 at 10:22 am

*thankyou* Rashmita. Your review actual made me *drool* *drool*
In your above post you have mentioned somewhere about using MAC technakohl too. So I would like to ask you , as Technakohl is retracable, its too smudgefree and Very Black, what makes this eye Liner score more?? is it that technakohl doesnt stay long?
