I’m permanently stuck on gel eye liners, but I decided to give Make-Up Forever eye pencils a try. I tried Shimmering Plum 4L which is very similar to MAC Macroviolet Fluidline, just not as good. The product just felt overly waxy and not as opaque enough as I would like. The pigmentation was fantastic on the back of my hand, but when applied to my eyelids, I wasn’t as pleased as I prefer darker, more definite lines. The staying power was pretty comparable to most “long-lasting” eye pencils, nothing to write home about. There was some smudging by the end of the night, but that’s to be expected with oily eyelids like mine. The “shimmering” aspect of the eye pencil wasn’t quite evident on the eyelids, but I suppose it’s supposed to be a subtle shimmering. I honestly feel that MAC Powerpoints are far superior and this can’t even hold a flame to Fluidlines. Pretty mediocre product, nothing worth repurchasing.
