From the MAC Padma Lakshmi assortment: Powerpoint Eye Pencils (dual-ended) in Iced Heather/Kerala Sun, Indian Ink/Mossy Green, Bordeauxline/Mole Brown ($18.50 every)

OK, so, I’ve been blinking like Morse code blinks for the final, oh, I dunno…two or three minutes, making an attempt to get this freshly utilized eyeliner from the MAC Padma Lakshmi assortment to switch up into my crease, and it’s simply not taking place. This stuff is the true deal for longevity! The MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencils are normally waterproof and budge-proof, and so are these dual-ended variations, that are $18.50 every (coming March 15th to select MAC counters and the MAC website).

1. They’re quite a bit just like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils.

Like the UD Glide-On Pencils, the MAC Powerpoints are mild on their ft as they slide throughout your pores and skin. They don’t glide fairly as easily as a gel eyeliner, however nonetheless they’re easy, they usually set VERY rapidly (30 seconds or much less).

These dual-enders from MAC Padma may look slightly sheer in swatches, and I’ve observed that the UD ones are like that, too, however when you construct them up, the colour appears wealthy, darkish and deep. It doesn’t take a dozen layers, both. Just two or three on the most.

2. They’re lengthy lasting on lash AND higher water traces.

I like these for crisp pencil traces alongside my lash traces and for tightlining my higher water line, however for some cause — for some cause! — I can’t get them to stay to my decrease water line. It’s the weirdest factor, and, sadly, I believe it holds these again from being fabulously versatile showstoppers.

Also, I ought to be aware that these aren’t the form of liners that smudge simply, so when you predominantly put on smoked-out liner appears, or when you had been hoping to make use of these as a smudgy eyeshadow base, they received’t do this for you.

As easy, long-lasting pencil liners, although, they’re nice.

3. Blue and inexperienced one = standout combo

Indian Ink/Mossy Green is my favourite one. Blue Indian Ink is a beautiful darkish navy that appears nearly black at instances, and Mossy Green — additionally attractive — rocks. I like to make use of slightly within the inside nook of my decrease lash line or inside tear duct for refined eye brightening. It’s in contrast to a standard-issue inside nook spotlight, which I like.

Like the remainder of the MAC Padma Lakshmi assortment, these are gonna be on the MAC website and at choose MAC counters beginning March 15th (when you’re critical about getting your paws on one, name your counter forward of time to substantiate).
