Blue Me Over

MAC Blue Me Over Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with a second layer. The consistency was very fluid and seemed more on the watery side, but I was able to control it for a less-shaky line compared to some shades in the range. It took a few minutes to dry down, and it was hard to keep it out of my fine lines when I tried on my lower lash line while it was drying. It showed no signs of fading, flaking, or movement after 14 hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.084 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "unprecedented 24-hour wear" that's "water-resistant" with "intensely rich" coverage. Once it sets, the eyeliner stays on and on and on without flaking, smudging, or fading; I didn't test any for 24 hours, but every one that I've tested so far has lasted for 14 hours flawlessly (and when I left swatches on arm for 24 hours, they were mostly intact after 20 hours). The issue is getting them to apply without bleeding, feathering, and gathering in any fine lines on the skin as several shades had very long dry-down times. I waited a full five minutes before photographing swatches and not all shades had dried down in that time, and five minutes is completely unrealistic to wait on the lash line as the color absolutely will bleed into the skin's texture. Some shades applied more fluidly with richer coverage in a single layer while others were more watery.

Coco Bar

MAC Coco Bar Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. When applied in a thinner layer, it dried down within three to four minutes, but it took some doing as the consistency was very fluid and richly pigmented, so it was easy to over-apply with how much was on the applicator. I had better luck using a separate brush to apply it so that the dry down wasn’t ridiculously long to the point where the liner bled into my fine lines. Once set, it was still going strong after 14 hours of wear.

Keep It Currant

MAC Keep It Currant Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich, deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The dry down time was incredibly long; the swatch was taken after five minutes, and it only mostly dried down when applied in a thinner layer after that wait time. When I applied just a single stroke of the product across my arm (the left side of the swatch), it was still very wet after five minutes. The texture was very fluid and less controllable, though those who may be more experienced using brush-type liquid eyeliners may not find it overly challenging. It was very pigmented and once it set, I didn’t see any signs of movement after 14 hours of wear.

Late Night

MAC Late Night Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It took five minutes for a thin, even layer of product to dry down, but when I applied a single stroke using the brush-type applicator, it was still wet in places after 10 minutes of waiting. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and fluid with opaque coverage in a single layer. I found it easier to control the amount of product and avoid excessive drying times by using a separate brush or else it would feather into my fine lines as it dried down. Once set, it stayed on well for over 14 hours (no signs of change).

Misty Me

MAC Misty Me Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, metallic silver with cooler undertones. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer that applied fairly evenly in a fluid stroke, though it had a wetter formula that took three to four minutes to dry down. I found this shade to be one of the easier ones to use as it dried down a little faster and wasn’t as prone to spreading into fine lines.

Sometimes I wish I liked liquid liners more; just don’t like the liner brush application or end result. I’ve seen it look great on others, just don’t like it on myself.

Hmmm. So I thought I wanted Keep it Currant but Late Night is actually calling my name as an alternative to regular old black liner.

Blue Me Over is surprisingly pretty in the swatch! If it dried down better, I would love it for a double winged liner. Problem is, if I ever use liquid liner (I almost never do), I always use it along my upper lashline. This slow dry down combined with my very hooded lids spells disaster unless I invest in a separate eyeliner brush.
Also love Late Night!

I picked up Misty Me in Spokane on Friday after mentioning to the sales assistant that I rarely use liquid liner as I have so little lid space and when I do use it I have to pretty much make a wide line that covers my mobile lid completely and then start my shadows above the crease which is a technique I picked up from watching Tarababyz on YT. The sales assistant told me that she had the same issue and was using these liners as shadows patted out over her mobile lid and that they performed beautifully. She also mentioned that she has patted them out and added dazzle shadows over them so create very shimmery looks. She said the liners when patted on act like a shadow base. I tried the technique and loved the look using Misty Me patted out over my mobile lid and Omega in the crease. Using them this way results in really no dry down time. Not sure this would make it realistic to purchase to use as shadows but since I was looking for something to work the same as my Ellis Faas E301 Antique Silver eye shadow I decided to give it a try. I am unsure about whether this will be the answer for me as the shades once applied are not the same. The Ellis Faas is more “antique” looking and I prefer it to this but it could work. The MAC liner is cheaper in the long run. I didn’t have a lot of shadows with me so I am going to try using this similarly to my EF and see if I like the look. If not, I will be taking CeeBee up on her offer to get the EF for me! Thought I would mention this use in case someone really loves the color of one of these but does not want to deal with the dry down.

I’ll have to try it as a base – thank you for the tip, Deborah! Glad to hear I wasn’t the only one who experienced some fussiness with these due to dry down time!
