Great eyeliner! Seems like everyone else agrees, according to the 88% rating! It's the perfect daytime eyeliner for me; subtly sexy and it's great for dark brown eyes! Stays well, too.
If you are looking for a very striking brown color, I think Duck is not what you are looking for. Itīs a matte cool brown pencil, dark but not too dark. It doesnīt sound exciting but it is exactly what I needed.
Brown eyeliners frequently have some red in them, whick make my eyes look irritated, sore and tired. But it doesnīt happen with Duck, because it is a greysh brown, not a reddish brown.
It defines my eyes and itīs not harsh, itīs perfect for daytime. I also love that it doesnīt irritate my eyes.
I bought it during summer, and it was smudging too much (my Forever Green Powerpoint doesnīt smudge even during summer), which disapointed me a little, but now it is cold I can line my bottom lashline and it lasts for about eight hours, then it will fade and smudge a little.
I have to use my MAC sharpener with my Powerpoints, if I use a common one I can damage the pencil and the sharpener.
This is PERFECT! I was looking for a liner that goes on smooth, stays put, and is noticable but not dramatic. I'm very fair so when I wear black liner its super niticable and I feel like it makes my eyes look itsy bitsy. This liner is great for my skin tone and it doesn't smudge. I will repurchase for sure!
I got this in a swap and LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.
This eyeliner definitely stays put but not on the waterline. I have fair skin (NC30), so when I wear black eyeliner, it looks too dramatic. It is the perfect colour for an everyday use. It is a cross between black-brown-grey.
I looooove this color. I use to line my eyes with brun eyeshadow by mac but got tired of that bc i wanted a pencil instead of a shadow. Brun and duck are basically the same color and i will be buying this as soon as i am about to run out. I dont particulary care for black eyeliner as i feel it is to harsh for my waterline especially in the daytime when im tired and need to look awake. This is subtle enough to look natural and provide the definition im looking for, for my chinky eyes. Highly recommend- im nc45 for reference.
I love the powerpoint pencils. but this one specifically, duck, is just too light and fades away quickly. I've been looking for a harsher, deeper brown since.
This is a darker brown but with cool undertones (maybe some grey)?
I have cool colouring and this a great brown for me, as it's not warm hued. I use only dark brown or brown/black mascara and this is the perfect compliment for a natural look. It glides on and stays put until you come to remove it. I will buy this over and over again.

The name of this pencil just makes me laugh. MAC describes this as a fowlishly soft brown grey which makes me think of a Cornish game hen and then I get hungry. But that is just my mind wandering which MAC does when it names a pencil after an animal.
The color of this pencil is soft muted brown. Depending on your skin tone, it can have a slight warm yet ashy undertone that leans towards a green/grey/yellow. To simplify, it does look like a dark ashy taupe. The only difference I find between this is and Stubborn Brown is the amount of grey or the tone. It can be used on eyes as dark as mine (espresso brown) and just as light as blue and it will work as an everyday color.
Surprisingly, I find this color to open up my eye area because it blends in with the surrounding eyeshadow on my lashline. While black and dark brown are nice to provide drama and to draw attention to my eyes, sometimes I like my eyes to look wide awake than sultry!

This is a great alternative to black. It is a matte deep dark expresso brown. I like to use powerpoints on my lower lash line because it lasts all day and glides on easily. I don't like to wear black liner on my bottom lash line and this color really makes my eyes stand out with black liner on my top lash line.
A matte dark brown liner with no red tones
I love the powerpoint eyepencils for their superb staying power and this color is a staple
