The MAC sales associate recommended Stubborn Brown after I said I wanted to try something different than the MAC Coffee eyeliner I always wore. Stubborn Brown is a nice dark brown color (very similar to Fluidline Dipdown), but it doesn't go on very easily and smoothly for me. I also have to sharpen it each time I apply. Staying power is great though. I don't think I'll repurchase, however, as I'm now hooked on the Fluidlines.
I'm very impressed by this product. I wear very minimal makeup, and usually only eye makeup (eye liner and mascara) I searched for years for an eyeliner that wouldn't smudge. I have sensitive eyes and I wear contacts so my eyeliner would invariably smudge after a couple of hours. I finally found the Powerpoint and I'm not looking back! The colors are fantastic and they do not move until I remove my makeup at night. Stubborn Brown is my everyday color. I sometimes wear it with Handforged to soften the look a bit. I just finished my first pencil (I bought it about 1 and 1/2 years ago) but I already bought another one and will continue to. I have no desire to look for another product, this is perfect for me!
Stubborn Brown Powerpoint is a good brown liner but on my oily lids it just doesn't have the staying power of my Colorstay liner by Revlon. I have many MAC Powerpoint liners but I would not repurchase this one as there are better alternatives out there in this fairly standard colour.
i love love this eyeliner! the color is my HG dark brown :) i usually use this pencil for every eye look i do :) it works well glides on smoothly and stays on all day! :) huge rave
GREAT EYELINER!!! EXCELLENT STAYING POWER! I love this eyeliner so much! It lasts all day on my eyes.. without touching it up. I was using MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder, which was pretty at first, but being a kohl, it faded so much during the day. Powerpoints go on so well AND stay. Thanks MAC, this one is a keeper!
Bought it, love it. Smooth application, the perfect eyeliner. It's so perfect it looks like a cartoon drawing, it's that good. Basic, not too pricey, my HG I won't be looking for anymore eyeliners because this is what I always come back to.
Ok I got mine from Canada which is tons cheaper than in my home country but still it's not worth the price paid for it. After about 3 hours or if I perspire it will streak my end eyes which is very frustrating as it will not rub off (ironically!) I have to add my SU concealer to the streaks and end up caking my under eye. I have confirmed that the straking is not caused by my Lancome mascara which IMO is excellent. Disappointing!
This product gave me horrible red, itchy eyes. I thought it might have been the brown pigment they used but I tried their regular brown pencil and it didn't irritate my eyes at all. On top of the allergies it caused, I found it to be too pigmented--I guess I am used to ones that I have to press a little harder to use because when I tried to apply this I just got a thick, cakey, smudge-prone mess on my lids. WORST eyeliner I've ever used!
Stubborn Brown, you're not very stubborn on me. You're a basic dark brown, can be found in any line. Application is ok, you're very smooth but not the best. Staying power, this is where I draw the line (no pun intended). You're supposed to be long lasting, but alas on an average night involving a museum date, dinner, and drinks at the W hotel, I had to wipe you off my undereye area at least 6 times. Then when I came home I looked like a little panda, sure a cute panda, but that's not my intent. Well my date asked me out again but I'm calling it quits with you Stubborn Brown.
Everyone needs a great basic brown eyeliner, and this is mine. Easy on the wallet, glides on, and stays forever. What more could a girl ask for? This doesn't even smudge beneath my eye, which is a major problem for me with just about anything beside gel liner.
