Bordeauxline/Mole Brown

MAC Bordeauxline/Mole Brown Powerpoint Eye Pencil (Dual-Ended) ($18.50 for 0.07 oz.) contains an eggplant purple and a deep brown. Each side is almost the equivalent to a full-sized Powerpoint Eye Pencil (0.04 oz.), so there’s actually a lot of value here. I wasn’t in love with either shade as both required at least two (if not three) layers to get closer to opaque, even coverage. They were long-wearing and seemed to be waterproof, though.

Bordeauxline

Bordeauxline is a medium-dark, eggplant purple with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable coverage (up to mostly opaque) and was best applied using short strokes rather than attempting to get a line of color in a fluid stroke when working along the upper or lower lash lines. From afar, it looked fairly even, but up-close, it wasn’t. The texture was firmer and a bit waxy, but it didn’t feel sharp or rough, just had a bit of tug. On the upside, it did last for nine and a half hours with minimal thinning/fading. I didn’t have any issues with it smudging or running on me, and when I spritzed it with water, it did not run.

Mole Brown

Mole Brown is a deep, sooty brown with subtle, cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two layers. The texture was more velvety and felt a touch thicker compared to Bordeauxline, which had more of a waxy feel to me. This shade applied more evenly and was easier to work with using longer strokes, but the sheerer coverage meant that it was still better to apply in short strokes to get even, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me before noticeable thinning occurred (but no smudging). It didn’t run or feather when I spritzed water on it and rubbed with moderate pressure.

I’ve had some really stellar ones but just like UD, there’s a wide range of quality/performance. I just with these weren’t double ended….I’d rather purchase the pencils I like as singles rather than being required to take less quantity of the shade I like and have to pay for a 2nd shade I don’t really want.

I don’t like Mac lip liners, they are so dry and have no staying power. Have tried their kohl pencils and they were disappointing.

Since these are shades that I do like to put on my lower lashline to help anchor eyeshadow when I smoke it out, these could be utilitarian in purpose, with a smidgen of glam attached…?

Very pretty shades for my green eyes, but the formula does not sound like a good match for me. Besides, I’ve recently fallen in love with my very first Marc Jacobs Matte Gel Highliner.
