REVIEW – MAC Penultimate Eye Liner

MAC Penultimate Eyeliner Review

For the longest time I have only used gel eyeliner, but I must have turned a new leaf this year because I am absolutely in LOVE with felt tip eyeliners. I just find it much easier to apply and I feel like I have a lot more control using a felt tip eyeliner. I am also able to do really precise, clean lines and this type of eyeliner really helps you create an amazing cat eye. Since my revelation, I am constantly on the hunt for new felt tip eyeliners.

I recently purchased the Penultimate Eye Liner from MAC Cosmetics. I had really high hopes for this eyeliner since MAC usually delivers great products. This product retails for $19.50 and comes in one shade – Rapid Black.

Below is a picture of the tip and also swatches of the eyeliner-

I hate to say it, but I would definitely pass on this product. This pen dries out soooo fast. I bought this in September and within a few weeks it was already dried out. I was also disappointed by its pigmentation. I like my eyeliner to be super black, but I just don’t think this eyeliner was black enough. I also like the “wet” look that felt tip eyeliners usually give, but this didn’t do any of that. The application of this eyeliner was also pretty challenging. It just was not smooth whatsoever. You really had to go over the line a few times in order to fill in all the gaps and also to make the liner as black as I like. Yes, PASS please.

Let me know if you have tried this liner and your thoughts on it.
