MAC Risque is a soft creamy eyeliner, which I got to use on my waterline. The color is a cream-beige with white undertone, which ended up not being ideal to complement my NC20 complexion; it looks more natural than an white eyeliner, but it's still pale and not my ideal "nude". The finish is matte, but the color isn't opaque; it has some transparency, but the formula is too creamy to try to build it up. The formula it's not too waxy, but it's slightly emollient, so sometimes it just sat in my waterline. It starts fading easily, especially if you have wet teary eyes (like me). It's a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to mostly opaque color with two layers. Like Bare Asset, it was creamy without being too waxy or too emollient, and it also wore well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches/ view dupes. (I don't have single swatches available in the gallery, as the original swatches are quite old, but this seems quite similar to MAC NC15/NW20.)

MAC Teknakohl eyeliners are a good option when you look for a creamier formula and don't want to worry about sharpening. Graphblack is not the blackest black, so it tends to be slightly better for softer looks. The opacity can be built, although it's fairly dark from the first application. Due to the creamy waxy formula and the rounded medium tip it's quite hard for me to get a fine thin line, if I want to draw a cat wing I need to use something with a finer tip. But it's also very easy to apply, glides smoothly without tugging my eyes. The formula dries fast, but you get a couple of seconds if you want to smudge it out. It's quite resistant on the eyelids, but it fades rapidly from the waterline. I rarely use it on the waterline, because I like more dry pencils for that, waxy creamy formulas tend to irritate my eyes. The liner is quite thin, so I just twist to get the tip, if too much product is out it break very easy. If it breaks you kind of can push it back and use it, but it's going to fall off easily from the component. I have sensitive watery eyes and oily eyelids, but if I prime my eyelids there's no smudging or bleeding.
