MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil

MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil

MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “soft grey brown.” It doesn’t read gray at all to me; it’s more of a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with hints of red in the base. It has no shimmer, so the finish tends to look more matte on the lash line. Chanel Brun-Teak is similar but darker. MAC Brownborder is also similar and only slightly darker.

MAC’s Powerpoint Eye Pencils are designed to be long-wearing, water-, transfer, smudge-, and budge-proof. Duck has a really creamy consistency and great glide for easy, tug-free application on the eye. It’s fairly pigmented in a single pass, and it can be layered without worry about “erasing” parts of the color. Some of the shades in this formula have a waxier base, so when you go back and forth, it seems like you’re removing some of the color, but not with this particular shade. I’ve had good wear experiences with this formula; typically, they wear for eight hours and are mostly visible at that point, but they can withstand humidity and some water, and I didn’t have any smudging issues.

If you're looking for a warm brown eyeliner to complete your neutral look, Duck would make a nice choice. I love brown eyeliner to give any eye look a softer, less harsh look.
