MAC Lion Babe Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.084 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering gold.” It’s a bright, medium-dark coppery gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. MAC Naked Bond (P, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Cockiness (LE, ) is darker, less pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Amber (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Nut (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more muted (85% similar). MAC Copperthorn (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Liquidlast Liner formula is supposed to have “long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake” formula. It was richly pigmented with a thin consistency that spread easily but sometimes looked a little streaky, so I preferred using it with two layers to ensure smooth, even color. The brush is thin and fine, so it can be used for more precise lines as well as for building-up to thicker lines. The Liquidlast formula is very, very long-wearing–it basically doesn’t budge until it’s time to remove it. I had it on for over twelve hours, and it didn’t budge, fade, or flake. This shade will be released no April 28th as an online exclusive to

Alright totally buying this tomorrow!!! And redeeming that $10 off $50 deal! Mac sure is aiming for a comeback aren’t they?

I definitely need this!! Love that it’s a more orange-toned gold instead of yellow-toned, and the Liquidlast formula is really budge-proof, one of my favorites. They used to have a lot more colors but now it seems they only have black permanently.

Me neither!! There were some beautiful colors. Do you remember that bright metallic turquoise they had? One of my all time favorite liners and it’s so hard to find a dupe that’s as bright and reflective as that one.

This is definitely my cup of tea! Love how it really looks like liquid, molten metal. Wonder, though, whether it’s waterproof? Because whatever’s in my allergy tears destroys anything that isn’t!

Oh my, I think I need this one! It’s so beautiful and I like pairing it over a dark line like Wwendy said. I think it would look nice over a rich brown line too.
On another note, I got an emai from NARS today about your reviews of their summer line. Very cool!

I will say that it doesn’t layer as well, mostly because it’s SO opaque, but it will go nicely next to a brown eyeliner! 🙂


Hello Christine
i think I have overseen from which LE it is. I Do not use a liner very often so think My attention was on the other products.

Congrats on the shout-out from Nars! I thought it was kinda awesome being mentioned:-) Got the usual email from them, but this one said, “Read Temptalia’s Rave Reviews”! I was like, whaaat…! Cool!

This is so gorgeous, and with such a a great review, I will definitely be picking this up! Thanks Christine. I can totally see myself rocking this all summer.

Lovely eyeliner. I think I will have to get this one. So much fun one can have with interesting colours like this instead of my usual black

This is so gorgeous, and I’m so tempted to get it, but I already have Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in El Dorado and I’m worried they might be too similar. Thanks for reviewing!

I think El Dorado might be a little more golden, but if you don’t wear that often, then I would agree that it might not make sense to have both!
