I LOVE the texture of the Pearlglides .. so I had to have this one! Bank Roll is a stunning green .. it's what I wanted Forever Green to be. This lacks the olive tone that FG has.
Bank Roll for comparison shade-wise .. is darker than Swimming eye shadow, but lighter than Humid. A medium emerald green. If this was just a smidge darker, it would've been absolute perfection! This looks great on the inner rim, or along the lower lashline with a bit of black or bronze eyeliner at the outer third to add some depth. It applies silky smooth and doesn't smudge or fade at all for me. Great liner that I love to wear when I want to add a pop of color to bring out my brown eyes!!

Bankroll is a shimmery vibrant bright green. almost emerald but a little lighter. Very pretty but a tad on the light side. I like to line the inner rims in black or dark green to really make the eyes pop with bankroll on the upper and lower lash line. Really pretty. Lasts all day with minimal smudging, but there is a little. This is not recommended for the waterline. I also notice that the glitter in these can make my eyes itchy if i wear them day after day so i usually skip a day in between. limited edition.

Bankroll is the color of the US dollar when it was rich and plentiful! It is a warm emerald green with glittering green sparkles. It doesn't lean towards yellow or go towards blue. This also doesn't turn into an olive green or a blackened green so if you are looking for that color in an eyeliner, this one is not for you. However, if you do want this to be a darker green, layering it on top of a black liner or even on top of MAC Black Russian really deepens the color (also adds another dimension of glitter thanks to the blue sparkles).
The texture is similar to Urban Decay's in the way that it does become budgeproof and water resistant. That is where the similarity ends. Pearlglides can be used as an eyeliner and eye shadow. As eyeliners, they can offer a thin, thick, or smudged line. There is time to work with it before it spreads. As an eyeshadow, these pencils will glide effortlessly onto the lid and easily blended with a brush or finger. It will eventually set, leaving it budgeproof.
I do like these both as an eyeliner and eyeshadow. I find them easy to work with and very forgiving on mature skin. My mother adores these for this reason. As an eyeliner they glide on easily without tugging or sticking. When it sets, it doesn't shrink or have that dry feeling which can easily irritate sensitive eyes. As an eyeshadow, I use this after my powder shadow, I just draw a couple of thick lines on top and smudge with a synthetic brush or my finger. The glitter may seem unforgiving and for some it could be intimidating. I suggest taking an eyelining brush and swiping it across the pencil tip, take what is on the brush and line the eyes. This way there is less glitter. If you don't care about glitter, just take the pencil and draw a line on the lashline. Even as a shadow, the glitter can be easily dispersed to be very forgiving on mature eyes. It just gives that hint of glint! To remove the color, a good oil based eye makeup remover is needed.

The color is similar to Shiseido Green Exotique but this comes in a pencil form while that one is a cream e/s. I love the color and don't have any problem with glitter falling down. The only reason I give it a 4 is that it doesn't last on me. Disappear after about 4 hours. But that's normal for me anyway. Nothing last on my eyes. I still love it anyway.

After seeing karla's swatches of pearlglides on her blog. The one that stood out the most was Bankroll.
I love green e/s , so of course a green e/l was an instant lemming.
This e/l is gorgeous with minimal shimmer on my lids. I used it on my lower lash line and to shade a bit in (similar to an e/s effect) on my crease.
Love, love these pearlglides. It's smooth and easy to apply and doesn't smudge off even after 5 hours.
But this time I used MAC shadestick as my primer.

Bank Roll is amazingly pretty green shimmer eyeliner with soft light green mircoglitter. The color and overall visual effect reminds of vividly-colored peridot gemstones sparkling under sunlight. Bank Roll is also one of the eight liners from MAC's brand new Pearlglide collection. The base of all the liners have a pearly shimmer, hence the name, "Pearlglide." The colors range from bright green with light green glitter, sapphire blue with light blue glitter, intense purple with fuchsia purple glitter, pewter grey with gold glitter, lilac with soft pink glitter, soft brown with copper glitter, darker brown with brown glitter, and black with silver glitter.
These liners are limited edition so they will go fast. I think MAC needs to make these liners permanent. When you consider the huge success of Urban Decay's 24/7 liners, it only makes sense. Talk about competition. Also, the Pearlglides are so beautiful and I see that factor alone being the reason for keeping them on board.
The texture is very soft and smooth. When I applied this, it literally slid on like a dream with no dragging or pulling. Despite the glitter, I did not feel any grit or sandy feeling either. It is important to note that when you buy these liners in store, the MUAs/SAs will advise you not to use these on you waterline due to the glitter. I, for one, never apply liner on my waterline. It does not look right on me. With that said, I cannot say for sure if the glitter will scratch your eyes or not. However, I would heed their advice just to be on the safe side.
Further, these liners are very long-lasting! I am very particular when it comes to liners due to my oily skin. Most liners seem to disappear into the great void but the Pearlglides really last well. I also put on a small amount of UD Primer Potion on my lower lash line. I let it dry and them apply the Pearlglide and it just kicks butt all day.
Overall, these liners are gorgeous. The texture, the staying power, the color range and glitter effects are out of this world.
