MAC Greasepaint Sticks: V, B, Black
MAC Cosmetics DSquared Collection: Greasepaint Stick & Feline Kohl Power
MAC DSquared Collection is small launch in-stores today, the 28th. The collection includes three shades of Greasepaint Sticks and repromotion of Feline kohl power.
- B is a deep, dark navy blue with lighter blue shimmer and a metallic sheen.
- V is a deep, dark purple-violet with lighter purple shimmer and a metallic sheen.
- Black is a dark black-purple with a violet cast and shimmer that’s more noticeable when swatched than when used as a liner.
- Feline is an intense, richly pigmented black liner that goes on incredibly dark. One of my favorite black liners!
Per my review of the Greasepaint Stick from Style Black, I haven’t yet found these to be rockin’ my world yet. They migrate on my lower lash line quite a bit – kind of smudgy and creasing on the lower lash line. It’s great that I can smudge the product when I’m applying it, but after I smudge it, I expect it to stay put!
On the water line, it holds up better, but it seems to aggravate my eyes, so I think I’m too sensitive to wear it on my water line. I wish the Black Greasepaint Stick was actually a true black, particularly since V exists so soon after the original release. The Greasepaint Sticks can be a bit thick to work with, so you may find yourself using a separate brush to apply this product in thinner, more precise lines. They feel a bit like a shadestick to me, actually.
- Product: 8/10
- Value: 8/10
- Ease of Use: 7/10
- Packaging: 8/10
Recommendation: If you like shadesticks, you may find these to be great bases for darker looks!
