MAC Cockiness Superslick Eyeliner
MAC Cockiness Superslick Eyeliner

MAC Cockiness Superslick Eyeliner ($20.50 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmery rose gold [with a Frost finish].” It’s more like a brightened, medium copper with barely-there pink, gold, and copper shimmer. I tried to look at it several different lighting situations to see if it turned more rose gold, but it always looked rather coppery. It had mostly opaque color coverage and seemed quite pigmented in a single stroke. There are actually not that bad coppery eyeliners–this post compares a few here but none really compare favorably. MAC Rich Ground (P, $16.00) is much darker and browner. Giorgio Armani Copper (05) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

MAC Pisces Persuasion Superslick Eyeliner ($20.50 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmery white [with a Frost finish].” It’s a milky white with neutral to slightly cool undertones and a white shimmer. This one was a little more translucent; it applied evenly but the milky white wasn’t fully opaque in one go. I think this might be better layered over something else. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this; I only could think of two eyeliners that were white but both were totally matte.

Neither of these eyeliners are going to be going anywhere once they’ve dried down and set.  They were easy to remove with a cleansing oil (I used shu’s), but I would opt for whatever your go-to remover is for anything super long-wearing or hard to remove, because a lot of lightweight makeup removers will struggle to remove these.  They are definitely waterproof and smudge-proof once dried.  The consistency, however, is watery initially, and because I applied to my lower lash line, I noticed that the first go-round, Pisces Persuasion actually pooled downward as it was setting–so just be careful where and how you apply it.

The MAC x RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection launches in December. I don’t have a specific date yet, and as soon as I do, you’ll see me update the collection’s official information post. Your best bet is to catch me on Twitter or Facebook, as I usually make a mention on social media first :)

  1. I’m a bit disappointed. When I saw the description and it said, that Cockiness would be a rose gold I got really excited, but this is a plain copper shade :( It does look nice, but why does MAC gives a shade description, that is so off from the real product? Do they think that people are color blind or did they test it in the dark?
    Thanks Christine for saving me a few bucks ;)

    I’m loving these!!!!

  3. Cindy

    Hmm I like the packaging but the “rose gold” is not rosy, pretty disappointing

  4. i’m thinking of picking up the pisces persuasion as i would totally use it as a not as blingy version of the urban decay glitter liners

  5. Pisces Persuasion might have a nice brightening effect, but Cockiness is not rose gold at all! So disappointing, especially because I love the song. Oh, well, money saved.

  6. I wanted Cockiness but the color and formula just looks meh. It’s not rose gold and it’s sheer. Disappointing

    This entire collection so far has seriously disappointed me. These are so sheer, and Cockiness seems much more copper than rose gold, and from the looks of it, seems like it’s going to be a pain to apply. Good thing I’ll be able to save a good bit of the money I had put back for this collection.

  8. Since im a proud Pisces i will be purchasing Pisces persuasion and maybe cockiness as well i like them. I love the formula tho

    I am so gutted that Pisces is a clear glittery eyeliner….I thought it was pure white!

  10. I actually think the white seems interesting. It’s different in a way that it’s not obvious white shimmer, but more like a brightening product.

  11. The swatch in cockiness looks lovely, would love to see a look with this!

  12. They are both appealing to me, not as defining eye liners but more of an accent/highlighting product.

    Honestly I’m probably just gonna get Pisces Persuasion for the name. Proud Pisces over here! :P

  14. Cockiness is a cute shade!

    Tbh, I think there’s some people who think rose gold is similar to copper. Odd, I ordered a Casemate glam phone case that was supposedly “Rose Gold” but when I received it, it’s just…copper. And this i exactly the same scenario. Isn’t rose gold more pink??

    • Rose gold is essentially a pinky-copper – it’s like a very warm pink, so it can lean orange or copper, but a lot of how it turns out is more copper than pink.

    Pisces Persuasion reminds me of the ‘teardrop’ liners that Korean brands make – it’s designed to brighten and enlarge the eye area, not be used as a traditional liner.
