Teddy is the best brown pencil for lining lower lids.
It is a deep dark brown chocolate-- which is good because for anyone, chocolate is what you want to define and give your eyes emphasis. I use it personally and it defines my lower eyelid without encasing me in blackest black.
this is a gorgeous shade and although not waterproof, it stays on for hours if you settle it with a brown (sometimes I use a light brown/golden like Soba, or a reddish brown like Brown script -- MAC) using a slanted brush it will be beautiful for the whole day.
I find that I use this when I go for a brown smoky eye effect. Like other MAC kohls its super soft and highly pigmented. Its brown with specks of gold and not too dark. I often steer away from black liners and use this instead, this is a must have liner in my bag of goodies along with the MAC Rosemary & Thyme kohl.
I had to post a comment on this since I got the nicest compliment on my eye makeup today from a co-worker. First of all, I love the MAC eye kohl's in general, I have tried and use(d) a number of them (teddy, stubborn brown, bountiful brown, phone number). They are all really easy to apply being the product is really soft. It is because of this I also highly recommend getting the MAC pencil sharpener because other sharpeners just eat the pencil and the point will always break. I am medium toned with dark hair and wasn't sure I could pull this off, but I just love the effect as a daytime subtle look since I think black liner can be sometimes too harsh of a look for day. Teddy is really nice because there are flecks of gold in it that really bring out brown eyes, almost gives a bronze tone to it. I use this with mascara and some undereye concealer and it is the perfect subtle daytime look. I highly recommend if you want a little something to bring out your eyes that looks really natural.
my staple is stubborn brown in the power point. i just ran out and decided to try a new powerpoint brown. they had nothing as deep as stubborn brown so the ma reccomended teddy. i dont like kohl's because i am SUPER oily and it just smudges but this color is beautiful on my brown eyes. it glides on super smooth and is a deep golden brown with reddish flecks through it. love it and will repurchase
I LOVE this e/l as an alternative to black especially during the day. It just offers a beautiful look, it's a bronze/brown with bronze and gold flecks in it.
I find that as the day goes on it fades to this nice subtle color. I even prefer it over black eyeliner, it's just so lovely! Price is quite expensive but I can find other high end brands that charge more, so this one is a must buy for those who are looking for something a bit more than just the normal black!
Will continue to repurchase this! This is an HG for me!
Still love this BUT it doesn't last long on the waterline. I have found an alternative in Laura Mercier's caviar stick in Cocoa. It doesn't have the same complexity of colors that Teddy had BUT it's quite close AND lasts ALL DAY!--Read my review!
MAC kohl pencils glide on fairly easily and wear well all day, minus the bit of smudging that occurs along my lower lashline. They are moderately easy to apply (less so, however, than Prestige Total Intensity or Stila Kajal, but easier than the MAC powerpoints). I bought Teddy based on the rave reviews, and am glad to have tried it.
The reason Teddy doesn't get much action in my bronze eyeliner collection is because it doesn't do much for my cool, fair PPP complexion since it has a reddish cast to it. It makes me look like I've been crying, or my eyes are a bit irritated. Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Bourbon has the same slightly reddish undertone. It's a red based bronze vs a gold or orange based bronze. This rusty coppery dark bronze color, along the lines of MAC Bronze eyeshadow, might be more flattering on darker complexions. Teddy would definitely make green eyes "pop". I just prefer a less red eyeliner for my blue eyes and NW10 complexion, in which case MAC Bountiful Brown or MAC Lord It Up! pearlglide seem to fit the bill better. Check out Teddy at the MAC counter before buying if you are particular about the color of your bronze.

Teddy!!! I've purchased this bad boy several times. Its a bronze brown, two dimensional in my opinion either put it in the water line or blend it up. You can wear it and smudge it in for a more dreamy Latina look. Its very sexy, this was something that I wore daily for University. Smoulder is too much for day at times and slides off if I dont set it correctly. But even once Teddy starts to go slick you can easily blend it with your finger. The kohl is easy to blend and very soft. Which I LOVE! I hate having to warm up my eyeliner or when it scratches me. Otherwise if you are scared of blacks buy Teddy. I will always have this in my kit.
This eyeliner is a very beautiful brown it's not dull or too glittery its a pretty sheen, I just really don't like how much it smudges. Nice if you were going for a pretty smoky smudgy look..instead I really love MACs PowerPoint eyeliner in Bountiful Brown. Although it's not a deep brown like this one I love how it's waterproof and not so harsh looking.
I love the MAC eye kohl pencils, and Teddy is one of my favorite colors. It's a nice, shiny medium brown and I wear it with gold, tan, red, brown, pinky, etc shadows, it goes with a lot of different colors. My eyes are hazel to light brown with some gold in them and this liner makes them pop real nicely. Will definitely buy again when it runs out.
My absolute favoritte! Bronzy brown, and its just fantastic! Stays on a long time. Its dark, but not as hars as a black.
