MAC TECHNAKOHL LINER SMOOTHBLUE REVIEW AND SWATCHES
Today I want to review my first eyeliner from MAC. And am quite impressed with it. I got this a birthday gift and I am loving it.
About the product: (from website)
A mechanical pencil-style liner. In formula, soft and creamy, with an intense rich color deposit. Blends quickly on application. Dries quickly to a long wear, non smudge finish. Versatile. An easy way to line the upper and lower lash line of the eye. When applied at 90 degree angle, provides a thin precision line. For a thicker application, apply at a flat angle.

Technakohl is a twist up pencil eyeliner with an advantage of being totally retractable. (Remember lakme 9 to 5 eyeliners they can’t be twisted back inside and I broke my gypsy green eyeliner because of this :() I love that it’s totally retractable.
It is a bright blue color. The color is very vibrant and bright. It seems like turquoise on my skin but the shade is brighter than the swatch. It comes out as sky blue on eye lid. I love this color. It’s very well pigmented and a single swipe is sufficient enough to give the desired color. It’s a kind of color which looks good in summers.
I applied it in the morning and when I came back home in evening, it was the same. It didn’t smudge or fade. (That too in sweaty June of Punjab and scorching heat).
It requires a good oil based makeup remover to remove it. There wasn’t any noticeable difference in the intensity after I washed my face.
It’s very smooth and creamy and glides on easily without any tugging or pulling of eyelids. In fact, it’s so soft that I broke its tip while swatching. 🙁
My experience with the product:
I have used it twice and I loved it. I applied it in the morning and it didn’t smudge till evening. I had to use maybelline eye make up remover to remove it. It is an eyeliner and kajal. It can be used on waterline as well. It looks vibrant on waterline . 🙂 I love the texture. It’s so soft and creamy. There was no pulling of eyelids required. It gave a beautiful bright blue color in just a single swipe. It didn’t give me any raccoon eyes the whole day and didn’t smudge even after sweating so much. It can be used to give a thin line as well as thick line.
• Beautiful color
• Very well pigmented
• Glides smoothly and softly
• No pulling of eyelids required
• Awesome staying power
• Doesn’t smudge
• Can be used on waterline
• Waterproof and sweat proof
• Price is very high as compared to colorbar and faces eye pencils.
• Availability of Mac is an issue. I hate that it’s not available online.
• Removing it might be difficult. Good oil based remover is required.
IMBB rating: 5/5
Would I buy it again?
Yes. I am sure that I will finish it soon. I will get a new one as soon as I finish it.
Will I recommend this?
Yes, if you like to apply vibrant color eyeliners. Go for it. It’s a beautiful color.
