I am almost out and need to replace it! I love the brown for those brown does it days....The pencils glide on well and last all day.
I absolutely adore this product! It is my favourite brown eyeliner - no tugging, no unnecessary smudging, and pretty much waterproof (of course, this is only terms of a few splashes. Don't expect to go diving with it.) This is the perfect colour and it's a definite staple for me. I would keep repurchasing this over and over again!
MAC's Powerpoint eye pencils are amazing! They glide on easily and they last. I think the price is well worth the rich pigments, smoothness, and staying power. Stubborn Brown is perfect when black liner may be a little too dramatic.
I was using MAC Technokhol e/l in Brown Border prior to this purchase. The colors are very very similar. I did swatches of both at the counter. The reason I have replaced Brown Border with Stubborn Brown is that the latter has a much better staying power and its easier to draw a precise line (depending on your sharpening skills) rather than the blunt fat line Brown Border leaves you with. Stubborn brown is a very dark warm brown- i didn t detect any reddish tones in it. I use it for daywear when I need more drama than usual but not needing as much drama as Smolder (Black) would have provided. Took a lippie off cuz its expensive in Singapore at USD 18.
this is a great liner! def my HG brown pencil liner. the color is a beautiful dark brown. its not too dark and not too light, but just right. it defines my eyes beautifully AND stays put! it can be very precise or easily blended as well. it is an essential in my makeup bag.
I thought this is gonna be my last eye liner since I've been looking for pencil liner that doesn't smudge,waterproof. This is not waterproof enough, even thou I don't have oily skin. Usually I use it on upper lids,and it smudge on my bottom lids at the end of the day!! how could this happen!? It never happen before with cheap waterproof liner. The color was great, but the price is not worth at all!
Love this color nice brown color really makes my eyes pop. I have blue gray eyes and it really makes them look blue. It is waterproof alittle hard for me to get off with my makeup remover i use philosophy purity so i have to go over it a bit to get it to come off. and as other revs said to really get it to work you do have to have it sharpened to a point i use my dior sharpener that i had works fine. I also dip mine in a little h2o for more of a dramatic look. im thinking about trying the fluidlines so we will see.
Update: Found out why i had to use h2o to get it to show the sa said i got a bad pencil and it also irritated my eye. Tried fluidline also didnt work left that rev. Wish they would have worked for me loved the colors
Nice pensil, nice color for brown smokey eyes. Last very long and is easy to use because it is a bit creamy. I allways dip the point in water and then clean it with a tissue to create an intense effect. Price is more than okay for such a good quality pensil.
An absolute HG for me. I have dark brown eyes and darker skin so this eyeliner really makes my eyes pop. I dont even have to use mascara when I wear this. The main thing for me is that it really lasts and doesnt disappear (even after a 10-14 hour day). I wear it smudged but can also use it to do a precise line (if sharpened well). I used to use a non-MAC pencil sharpener, but since using the MAC one i've found that a pencil will last me longer than before. I could get cheaper liners but for what this does I dont mind paying the AUD$32 pricetag.
I like this color so much!!! It's just too bad that it tends to smear/bleed a little by the end of the day! Also, it would be much easier if I could turn the pencil to get more lead out instead of having to sharpen it. Even when I sharpen it, the lead is still pretty blunt. Overall, a good color (and I'm really picky about my brown eyeliners) and looks good (prior to bleeding)... I would repurchase.
