MAC Skyscape, Raisinette, Bishop Blue, Image Conscious, Alpha Grey Technakohl Liners

MAC Technakohl Liners ($16.00 for 0.012 oz.) are supposed to have a “soft and creamy” formula with “intense, rich colour deposit” while being long-wearing (specified as eight hours) and smudge-proof. I wish I could say that these were more impressive than the shades I’ve already reviewed, but these may be even more disappointing. The formula is soft as in waxy, so while it usually glides across the skin, it doesn’t lay down much color while doing so, and the waxiness builds up such that the color goes on unevenly and sticks in some places but not others. The wear is also shorter (though MAC’s saving grace is that they specified eight hours of wear) than most eyeliners, but the wear I get is shorter than they’ve claimed for most shades.

MAC Whirlpool, Take the Plunge, Vent, Cool Jazz, Metalhead, Cast Iron Technakohl Liners

MAC Technakohl Liners ($16.00 for 0.012 oz.) are supposed to have a “soft and creamy” formula with “intense, rich colour deposit” while being long-wearing (specified as eight hours) and smudge-proof. Most of these were disappointing with sheer color payoff that was only somewhat buildable and shorter (six hours) wear.

MAC Bare Asset, Risque, Snowed In, Army Style, Sourpuss Technakohl Liners

MAC Technakohl Liners ($16.00 for 0.012 oz.) are supposed to have a “soft and creamy” formula with “intense, rich colour deposit” while being long-wearing (specified as eight hours) and smudge-proof. The lighter beige shades actually performed a lot better than the ones I reviewed previously, so those might be worth considering if you prefer a mechanical eyeliner. The two green-hued shades were a miss for me, though, due to their stiffer consistencies, shorter wear times, and color payoff (or lack thereof).

bareMinerals I Love the Night Life Eyeliner Set

bareMinerals I Love the Night Life Eyeliner Set ($29.00 for 0.06 oz.) includes five shades of the brand’s Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eye Liner. As was the case with Afternoon Delights, it’s a frustrating formula to use, as the consistency is very dry and stiff. It drags and pulls at the skin, so the pigmentation suffers a lot, and even when you attempt to layer, the color is often uneven.

bareMinerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set

bareMinerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set ($29.00 for 0.06 oz.) includes five shades of the brand’s Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eye Liner. It’s a very disappointing formula, and I don’t recommend the formula, period, or this set, due to poor color payoff that is paired with a stiffer, drier formula. The wear is average, which is “good news” compared to all the other characteristics one tends to look for in a go-to eyeliner. I can’t believe they discontinued their Round the Clock formula for this, as these are some of the worst eyeliners I’ve tried in recent memory.
