This is my third pearlglide and I must say that I have yet to come across a dud. Blackpoint doesn't disappoint either. I apply this on the lid and smudge it out very quickly as this stuff sets fast. I do the same at my bottom lash line. Its quite glittery so that's not your thing then you might want to pass. As far as the shade goes it appears as a dark green olive on me (nc45) in some light but in others a soft golden black. Its kinda weird how lighting affects the outcome but overall I'm happy with this shade and I look forward to incorporating it into other eye looks using eyeshadows.
This is a quasi-black color that has a wet-looking sheen to it that appeals to me. It's a step-up from the usual black in that it's intense in color, but continues to look wet. It doesn't smudge, either. I have a suede jacket this color that the designer called 'thyme'. This color seems like a deep thyme. It certainly could have been more descriptively named. I would have called it Texas Tea, but by any name, this color is unusual, a distinctive black that flirts with the light, wears long and doesn't smudge.
This is an awesome alternative to flat black eyeliner. It has an olive-green-gold tone that is really flattering on warm skintones. Lasting power is great, consistency is creamy and easy to apply...what more could you ask for? Maybe a better name, "black line" doesn't do it justice. Hah
Pearlglides are my HG eyeliners! They stay on my waterline through 12 hour nightshifts, including naps (on my breaks....I'm no slacker). Yeah, I needed one touch up, so I'd say that it looks fresh for about 4-5 hours or so, which is pretty good since I wear contacts and have watery eyes. I have tried many HE types of eyeliners, and I have never had an eyeliner stay on my waterline for more than an hour so this is a breakthrough for me :), It applies like butter, super creamy, no tugging at all. Blackline is a unique, beautiful colour. Black with gold shimmer, very pretty and universally flattering.
This is my first Pearlglide Eyeliner, and it certainly won’t be my last! Black Line is a black-ish color packed with tarnished golden shimmer. It has good pigmentation and lasts all day or night on my eyes. It has an incredibly creamy texture, which makes it better for the lower lash line. On the upper lash line I always end up pressing too hard and putting too much liner on. I love to use Black Line with green-gold shadows like Sumptuous Olive and NARS Night Clubbing. I’m really happy that MAC decided to make these permanent.
First look, I thought this is a dark olive colored eyeliner and was wondering why it is called “Black Line”. On a closer look, it is actually black with golden shimmer (and bits of green), making it almost khaki. The black actually looks a little brownish. It is unique (my first time seeing black liner with gold sparks) and I am actually looking forward to wearing it out on my khaki green eyeshadow ^^
so disappointed. i loved the colour on my hand, but after i purchased it and used it on my waterline, my eyes felt irritated and i had to remove it. :( i've never had this with any other mac glittery eye liner before!
I rarely write reviews anymore being a new Mom but I LOVE this eyeliner. It's highly pigmented and glides on smooth like a dream. The colour is a perfect black-dark brown with hints of gold specks. I would say this is a HG colour for me and I alternate between this and grey utility as I don't have time for gel liners anymore. My only complaints are that it doesn't sit well on the lower waterline for me and kinda smudges so I need to do some cleanup below the lashes. Also, the pencil is super soft so you use up a lot of product when you sharpen it which hasn't been a problem with other MAC liners I had. I thought this was limited edition as I bought it at the CCO but saw that they sell it in the stores so I will be repurchasing for sure!
An absolutely gorgeous eyeliner, Black Line is black with an olivey tinge and very fine golden glitter. Personally I think this looks great applied thickly and smuged out but you have to work quickly because once this sets, which only takes a few seconds, it really stays put. It's definitely a smudge-proof eyeliner, impressively so! MAC's constant limited edition collections are honestly too much for me and I don't really go for them most of the time, but these are definitely worth a look whenever they're next released!
This is the only liner in pencil shape that I like, I have tried UD 24/7, Guerlain´s Loose Kohl and so many others, but always go back to this one. It lasts AGES on my waterline and tightline, ok, I put on several coats of this and don´t worry about the edges smudging a little bit, it makes it all even more sexy-messy... The color on me is basically black with some gold sparkles and some olive green, which brings out the green bits in my brown eyes. Warning: this is too sultry, too gorgeous, too flirty, this makes let-me-get-you-a-drink-please-please kind of eyes...
