I was really impressed with this eyeliner at first but within a few uses it seems it has dried out already. I think it may be that it's just not a very dark black rather then just a regular black, so for that it makes it not worth it. The tip is good quality though, and it's impressively easy to use. I'm sure there is something out there equally as good with better color for a more reasonable price.

I generally like this eyeliner. I like the way it spreads I have been using it for over 4 months and it is not running out. It smudges with me but it stays for the majority of the day so that's good (you just gotta prime). Easy to use.

I liked this eyeliner a lot when I first got it. It gives you a very nice, crisp line, and is super easy to use. I do wish that the product was darker, and that the applicator had a bit more product on it. I often have to wipe the pen tip off to continue drawing a line, because it gets dried out by my eyeshadow. I make sure that I store this with the pen tip down, and clean it off with a makeup wipe. Overall, it's not a bad product, I just think there are much better ones out there. I do like the concept, if they can perfect this, it would be fabulous!

I pretty much agree with most of the other reviews. At first I loved this product. It was easy to use and was a rich and inky black. However, the eyeliner is only good for maybe a month, depending on the frequency of use. I use eyeliner nearly everyday, so this product was no bueno. It doesn't even show up if I try to use it now, completely dried out and faded. I can't recommend.

Terrible! My worst MAC purchase ever and at AU$32, what a disappointment. The product started dring up before I could begin to enjoy it and the tip of my liner is permanently bent - making it impossible to get a clean line.

I much prefer my L'Oreal Liquid Liner.

I've had mine for about a month and a half now and it still isn't near to drying up, but I don't use it daily. Color is not as intense as a normal liquid liner, you kind of have to go over it multiple times to get a really black color, so that's kind of a bummer. Also this goes on much thicker than i like, I'm really not a fan of the pen applicator. It does stay all day for me however. Kind of expensive for a mediocre product :/

Really like this eyeliner. Will definitely buy it again. It does dry fast so I have to be quick about fixing any outliners. It lasts the whole day and stays defined. I only wish they would make it more colors, especially a dark brown.

I am disappointed in this product. I usually use drugstore pen eyeliner, but I am always looking for better. I thought MAC would offer a lot more with this product, but it's worse than any drugstore liner I have used........It's very dry, i feel like i'm writing with a ballpoint pen. there's no intensity or liquid as I expected. also, the liner doesn't stay on--it gets greasy and verryy messy by the end of the day!!!!!!(not even at the end..........before that) will never buy this product again............this is going back to the department store!!!!!

I'm disappointed with this product. It's quite sheer which was not what I have expected. I have to draw the lines several time to get the intensity of regular liquid eyeliner. It doesn't have much staying power and it's not really black...more charcoal black. I expect more from MAC. On the plus size, the fine tip felt brush is really precise and it's easy to use. There are other brand like Armani that are launching this form of eyeliner, I'm gonna try those. Can't say I love this Penultimate.
