MAC x Proenza Schouler Collection includes Pro Longwear Eyeliners ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) in two, permanent shades and Pro Longwear Lip Pencils ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) in two, permanent shades. I’ve reviewed all four of these previously, so you can read about the full reviews for: Pro Longwear Eyeliners and Pro Longwear Lip Pencils. This post only features photos of the pencils in the limited edition packaging, but the colors, textures, etc. are all the same. (I did re-test them, just in case!)

The Pro Longwear Eyeliner formula was disappointing to me, as they appear noticeably faded by the eight-hour mark–not the twelve hours as claimed–and they aren’t waterproof. They have a lightly creamy consistency that is fairly waxy but needs to be built up for opaque color.

Rich Experience is described as a “true brown.” It’s a dark brown with subtle warm undertones and a satin finish. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Black Ice is described as a “rich black.” It’s a medium-dark black with a satin finish and neutral undertones. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Pro Longwear Lip Pencil formula wears long and hard, though they’re pretty uncomfortable to wear by themselves as they cling and feel more like shrink-wrap on the lips. Underneath lipstick, they definitely add anywhere from an hour to three hours of additional wear, depending on the shade, and they don’t seem to interfere with the way the lipstick itself feels/hydrates, so they’re a lot more comfortable to wear with lipstick or lipgloss on top. They have good color payoff and apply quite evenly.

Dynamo is described as a “bright peony.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark pink-coral with a matte finish. MAC Dynamo (P, $19.50) Urban Decay Streak (P, $19.00) is the closest that I could think of, but it is warmer and more orange. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

High Energy is described as a “bright orange-red cream.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I love the Pro Longwear lip liner formula and Dynamo is super pretty! I can’t believe I haven’t picked it up by now lol. I’d rather have it in the regular packaging though since it’s already pretty pricey

Ouch! Guess I’m skipping those eye pencils!!!! What did we do before online reviews and swatches…
Thanks for getting these up. The collection looked pretty but ….now…more mixed. You saved me some money!

Dynamo is a pretty colour! Not sure what they were thinking releasing Black Ice like that though…especially after BlackBlack recently was so good!

What is MAC thinking of, re-releasing stuff in new packaging but with sub-par quality? I’m fast becoming disappointed and wary of their products and new releases, don’t they test their products or is it just repackaging, hoopla and advertising, screw the customer and quality? I’m saving my $$ and bypassing this set.

I’m never in love with permanent products that released in limited edition packaging, because then you KNOW you’re just paying for packaging.

When i first saw the mark on black ice i was like how could a black liner have such a devestating review? And then i saw it and i wanted to cry lol! It truly is disastrous
