Another post for IIJM. This time I’m looking at you, MAC Smoulder eyeliner.
I received this as a birthday present from some very kind friends. I love me some eyeliner so I was overjoyed, especially as it was from MAC. Smoulder looked like the perfect black, kept neat on the waterline for a more harsh look, or smudged out to create a smokey eye, I couldn’t wait to try it out! Surely a MAC eyeliner was going to top any of those from the drug store given its reputation?!
Surely not. There is only one way I can make this product work for me, and that is on my top lid to create a softer, smokier line if I don’t want to go in with the liquid or gel eyeliner.
Maybe it is me, and maybe I’m using it wrong but I just cannot get this product to work for me. It won’t stay on my waterline, and if I do apply it I get barely any colour pay off at all. If I apply it below my waterline then it will drop through out the day making me look like I’ve just got out the shower/been rubbing my eyes/crying. Not a good look for a full day at work.
If you’re thinking of getting a MAC liner then I would recommend swatching in store before buying, and reading reviews.
Please do let me know if you’ve had similar problems or if you know a better way to use it!
