MAC Permaplum Powerpoint Eye Pencil

MAC Permaplum Powerpoint Eye Pencil ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “deeply plum with pink shimmer.” It’s part of the permanent range. It s a dark purple with subtle burgundy-brown undertones. L’Oreal Violet Volt is less red, bluer, while Make Up For Ever #6L seems redder, less purple.

A problem that often occurs with purple eyeliners is less-than-stellar pigmentation, and it’s true in this instance as well. It doesn’t deliver much color in a single pass, and while it is buildable to an extent, the waxy base that makes these glide across the lash line with ease, makes it difficult to layer too much product on. If you go back and forth a few times, you’ll find that it’s not perfectly evenly applied.

The formula is touted as long-wearing, waterproof, transfer-proof, smudge-proof, and budge-proof. It wears around eight hours for me with very minor fading, but it definitely doesn’t budge/smudge while it’s worn, which is always a good thing.

B
Not the best purple eyeliner on the market due to the lack of pigmentation! The formula is good overall, though I've found better luck with other brands from my experience. It's a formula I do use and reach for on occasion.

  1. I’m kinda glad it’s not that pigmented… Otherwise I’ll just add something else to my wish list lol

    I love my permaplum pencil! mine is really smooth and pigmented, i use it almost everyday! I’m sorry that you didnt like it :(

  3. I have this, and I do wish it were more pigmented. I tend to reach for Clinique Starry Plum more often.

  4. Y

    what happened to love it or leave it?

  5. Miss Tish

    Love the color! May have to grab it.

    Question for all of you lovelies, though! This kind of pencil (and also the 24/7 Urban Decay pencils), what is the best sharpener? I find the ones like this don’t sharpen well in my regular eyeliner sharpener. :(

  6. This could be so gorgeous, shame about the pigment x
