I'd read all kinds of rave reviews of this pencil and had looked at purchasing one at the online MAC site. I was shopping at a Tanger Outlet cosmetic store (don't remember which one) and low and behold there was the chromographic pencil on sale for $5. I picked one up and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to use it. It doesn't last around my lips when I tried to use it to block out some freckles at my lipline on the right side of my mouth. It looks a little strange on my waterline too, it doesn't make my eyes look larger- just strange, but I have really large eyes anyway and typically like to wear black on my waterline for an accent. I guess the best use I have for this pencil right now is a spot concealer for pimples,and for that it's OK, but I have lots of concealer sticks that also work OK. I'm glad I only paid $5 for this.
Fantastic product! I use this as a brow highlighter and inner corner eye highlighter.
the longest lasting "nude"/"white" eyeliner pencil I've tried for the waterline. It's a PRO product and I got it online on their website. definitely give it a try. against my tan skin, white eyeliner often looked too harsh and obvious. this one gives a more natural, wide awake look. it's also super creamy.
This is great product but it was hard to find. It is only sold in mac pro stores. To top it off when I was able to head downtown (which is where the prostore in located in Vancouver, Canada) They were sold out and they had a long wait list. I was finally ableto get the product and I have been very happy with the purchase ever since. I use it for the eye area as well as a spot concealer if I dont have one handy - very versatile.
I can't believe I've gone my whole life without knowing about this amazing product! I thought it was way too expensive but when something works this well, it's worth it.
I put it on the water line of my eyes and they are instantly brighter, bigger, more wide awake looking. And it lasts a long, long time.
Thank you to all the other MUA reviewers for letting me know about this and so many other great products.
When I finally tried this after getting it at the Mac Pro store, I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. It's a pale flesh color pencil that I put in the lower waterline and it makes my eyes look awake, more open and bigger but in a completely natural way that white just could not achieve. Also, this pencil lasts longer on my waterline longer than any other pencils I've tried. I was amazed to find that it lasted for five hours and wore comfortably. I even made a friend who doesn't like wearing a lot of makeup try this in place of black on her lower waterline and she absolutely loved it as well. It makes such a difference its like magic. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have their eyes look bigger and more awake. It's also a reasonably long pencil and you don't use much with each application so it will last a while. The texture is creamy and the pencil is pigmented so it goes on really easily but it also stays put.
i picked this up out of curiosity, and i've been having so much fun with it! this is the most multi-purpose product i've bought in forever.
previous reviewers have already covered how to use it; like cupid's bow and under eyebrow highlight, to tidy up dark edges on eye make-up, eyebrows and lipstick, spot and scar concealing and inner corner eye highlight. this works absolutely great for all of those. especially because for my eyes daily, i like to do my outer v crease at an angle or like a cat-eye like some people call it. instead of using tape, i just use this to clean up the angle and make it a perfect edge. this saves me so much time in the morning, because it allows me to do a bit of a rubbish job with my crease because i know i can fix it in 2 seconds with this!
i'm actually rewriting this review; because i can't wear this on my inner rims anymore as it bothers my contact lenses. i don't know why but little bits of it just get on to my contact lenses! but i still have a billion uses for this pencil.
because even if you don't want it as an inner rim liner, this literally does SO much. it's like a little magic wand/eraser/highlighter! this also even takes the place of my beloved Benefit It Stick right now.
just make sure you get the one that matches your skintone!
Lovely and magical! Bought this based on MUA reviews, and it is now my staple item. I used to wear black eyeliner in my waterline, but this creme liner makes your eyes awake and bright. Add a little highlight in the inner corner and under the bottom lash line and its a great, fresh look.
You can also use it as a spot concealer which I've done a couple times. I had to get mine at the flagship store as its a pro product, plus get on a wait list because its always sold out. $17
One of my great finds thanks to MUA. I wear contacts and at the end of the day they make my eyes and somehow my waterline look a bit irritated and red. This makes me look really tired. If I use this I look instantly fresh and awake. Would definitely buy again.
