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. Chanel Cuivre Dore (52) (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Copper Charge (Metallic) (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Amber (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). ColourPop Nut (LE, $7.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more muted (85% similar). Sephora Golden Hour (59) (P, $11.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Naked Bond (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Cockiness (LE, ) is darker, less pigmented (90% similar).

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

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.

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!

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.

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!
