It seems like MAC Liquidlast Liners ($21.00) have been around for awhile but it’s always fun to see some new shades pop up to refresh the line. Below are four of the nine currently available shades and my thoughts on the “indestructible” formula.
what is it
MAC Liquidlast Liners are described as “a liner that combines long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake precision line”.
Nine shades are available in Blue Me Over (bright teal pearl), Coco Bar (chocolate brown matte), Keep It Currant (deep oxblood matte), Late Night (blackened green matte), Misty Me (bright silver pearl), Naked Blonde (copper pearl), Point Black (black matte), Rich & Robust (deep purple w/ magenta pearl) and Wet Road (black w/ pearl).
The brush on the MAC Liquidlast Liners has never been my favorite. I find it fine for if I’m just adding a flick of color to the outer part of a wing (like adding a swish of Blue Me Over above the tail end of the winged liner) but when I truly want to be precise I use a slanted brush to apply.
I am a longtime fan of the formula because it sets well and remains budge-proof throughout the day. The pigment on the mattes is strong and even on the shimmer shades you have to do very little to make it all even. With the shimmers I tend to press rather than drag too much.
Because the consistency is a little more on the wet side you need to give them a couple of minutes to dry. TBH it’s too long of a wait so I wish they’d fix that but perhaps they’ve tried and it ruins the longevity. At least once they’re set you’re good to go with no worries.
