Product Spotlight: MAC Kohl Power Feline Eyeliner

27 Sep

It should be fairly evident to you all by now that I buy a lot of makeup. Surprisingly, however, I nearly never purchase backups. There are a few discontinued items that I am kicking myself for not doing this with, but generally, I find that I have enough products to keep me going – besides, there are always new things coming out!

Today, I’d like you to meet MAC Feline eyeliner. I have two – one’s a backup! Let me state here and now that you need this, and though it is limited edition, it is a current (September/October 2011) rerelease on MAC’s site. You can find it HERE!

Okay – so now that you have it in your shopping cart, let me tell you why you need to check out the goods.

This sucker is the blackest freaking eyeliner I have ever used in my life. I can’t wait to get my claws into Urban Decay‘s 24/7 in Perversion to do a comparison (it is KILLING me that they haven’t released the full size for individual sale, but this set has the mini for those, like me, who are interested), but they might as well have called this eyeliner Black Hole. I have brown eyes, and this eyeliner makes an impressively stark contrast. The pencil is also exceptionally creamy and smoothno tugging, not ever, and it lines the waterline like a dream.

If you are into a more grungy/punky/laissez-faire eyeliner look, then you will absolutely love this liner. It is extremely blendable. Admittedly, I’m not into smudging. This liner smudges very, very easily, which takes major points off in my book, and even more of a pet peeve, prints onto my upper lid almost immediately after application. If that’s not your bag, keeping MAC Feline from moving around is a simple fix – just pat MAC Carbon eyeshadow on top with a liner brush. However, while I don’t like that I have to add another step to my routine when one beauty product should get the job done, I understand that it is kohl, which is much smoother than your standard eye pencil and therefore transfers more easily.

So why then, if the liner moves around so much and makes me use extra steps, do I like MAC Feline so much?

I typically don’t line the waterline. I think it looks great on most people when they do it, but I feel like on me…well, I think it makes me look like a bit of a putana, which is generally not the look I go for in my day-to-day.

But sometimes, a gal just wants to bring sexy back.

Buy MAC Feline for a limited time here. Though it’s limited edition, it’s repromoted once or twice a year on average, so you won’t permanently miss out.

What do you think of MAC Feline? Are you a proud owner? Do you have a beauty product that makes you feel like you could take over the world with a good LBD and five inch heels? I have a handful…would you like to see a series on this?

    Okay, so, 1) Explain the waterline thing?

    and 2) I’m as pale as you are, but when I try to outline my whole eye like that, it just looks raccoon-like rather than sexy. But on you it looks sexy. They do it on TV shows a lot as well and I just have no idea how to achieve that look.

    Thanks Em!
