Mac Monday: Superslick Liquid Eye Liner

The Superslick Liquid Eye Liner was purchased last year, when the Fabulous Felines collection came out.  It's part of the permanent line, but I don't know if it was before that collection, so that was when I first saw it.  I bought the black one, called On The Hunt.

The tip is fine and felt, I think, but not as flexible as, say, the L'Oreal Carbon Supergloss liner, which is my all-time favourite liquid liner.

Quite a lot of product comes out on the applicator, so you might want to wipe it off on the tube before you apply it.  Here's a few different strokes of varying thickness.  I like to think I'm turning into a tiger.

It's a good, true black, although thinner lines (over to the right) do fade ever so slightly once dry.  It has pretty decent staying power though, and the applicator makes for easy application.

But.  There is a big but.  Removal is a nightmare, and if you happen to rub your eyes at all whilst you're wearing it, it sort of balls up a bit and pulls and just goes all horrible.  Removing it causes it to break up and smear all over your eye, rather than just coming off.

I've rubbed at my hand with the same pressure I would do if removing it, and I hope you can see what I'm talking about.

So, would I recommend this?  No.  For £15, it offers absolutely nothing in application and finish that any other liquid liner does, and the removal business makes this totally irritating.  I will not be buying this again.  Should have just stuck to my L'Oreal.  That'll learn me.

  1. Great review. I've always been tempted by the MAC liquid liners but I think I'll stick to the fluidlines.
