It is total waste of money! I just brought it blindly bcoz of its brand name but i totally regret it! It is not at all long lasting! This liner can give u a complete feeling of being fool if u buy this! It smudges alot! You can buy any ordinary brand it would also long last but this liner is shit! I will never ever buy it Again! I brought it bcoz i have never used liner before and i thought buying this pen style will be easy for applying but i was wrong ! It is not easy to apply ! The tip of this pen doesn't hold any color! So it doesn't give the benefit of applying thin n perfect! I have now decided i will never buy any product without reading a review beforehand!

This is the worst eyeliner I've ever used. It does not guide smoothly across my lids, the color is very watery (it looks like a light grey rather than black), when using this, I need to go over my lid several times to get some hint of color, and this stuff will come off your lids within an hour. NEVER buying again!

For a high-end make up brand, Mac really needs to get there eyeliner formula right. I always used their liquid last liner, but it was discontinued so desperately seeking a replacement, the store clerk suggest the penultimate liner, which is terrible. Goes on very faded, doesn't last at all and smudges a whole lot. I wouldn't suggest this eyeliner to anyone, there are far better and far cheaper alternatives on the market.

I had high expectations for this and unfortunately they were not met. For someone with an indian complexion who loves a bold, jet black eyeliner, this product did not do much for me. When applied, it doesn't even appear black and it has more of a lighter black or dark grey appearance. It streaks on application and it has to be applied on top of over and over again. Waste of money considering how expensive it is in Australia.

Pros, nicely packaged and that's about it.

I will not re-purchase and will go back to my Stila stay all day liquid eyeliner, definitely way better.

Very first time I reviewed something as the experience was so bad. Itried the tester before buying but surprised to see the wings were gone when I arrived home. Tried the one I bought , and after an hour, the jet black turned grayish!! No pigment left at all!!

It takes forever to dry and smudges so badly!! It stays on for 2hrs max. I tried revlon's pen liner and it was so much better for $25 difference. Wow!!

Sooo disappointed.

i just hate this product so much, for that price you're expecting a lot more. I have like two weeks with it and it's already dry... wtf???

I love the concept of this eyeliner but this formula is pretty much drugstore quality. Definitely not worth the money in my honest opinion.
The pen dried out within a month and I hardly used it. Wasn't a true black, I had to apply two layers.
It dries well on my arm when I swatched it but if you're even a tad oily this stuff will smudge and smear, total mess.
I usually use Chromaline which is AMAZING.
I wanted to try this pen one cause I'd do the leopard eyemakeup and it seemed easier with a pen. It faded throughout the day, smudged etc.
I'm really not happy with this liner.
I'll actually stick to the Chromaline and got the 109 brush I believe and its easier plus no issue with fading or smudging whatsoever

I've tried this off and on for a few months as it was pretty expensive and i'd say to anyone wanting to buy it it's not worth it. Very little pigment dries out very easily and the nib softens quite quickly so it's hard to get a very precise line after a few uses. Would definitely not recommend.

This was the first time I've tried a pen style liquid liner. Really wanted to like it since there's not much other option around where I live, but for the price I was paying I'd say this was not really good value.

First up, I like the style of it. I'd say pen style is definitely the way to go. it's a lot easier to navigate, but a great deal of the precision relies on the tip. The tip of this particular pen was okay, it was not too hard, but for a novice like me it did take a little practice to get right. I have since found other pens that do a better job because the tips are softer and finer.

Now on to the real negative point, it dries up really fast. I had this for possibly 2 weeks, used it about 2-3 times and it started dragging on me. Now for the price I paid NZD40, I expect way more product than that.

I don't think I would repurchase this particular product. It doesn't quite live up to its purpose, the tip is just so-so, and the price is just too much for the amount of product or use we get.
