MAC Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner: Have You Felt the Pearlglide Power?

Published in: Daily Photo

Four of the seven MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners ($16.50 each)

Metaphorically speaking, the MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners, which are members of the MAC permanent line and available now in seven $16.50 shades, have pure pearlglide power. They’re pigmented eye pencils with a smooth, creamy formula that contains a touch of glittery sparkle, and because of that, I don’t wear them on my water lines (because of the glitter), but I do love ’em on my lash lines.

Have you played with these before?


The smooth, smudgy formula glides across the skin like a gel liner, then sets in about three minutes, after which time it doesn’t budge for up to 12 hours.


I use these all the time as part of my layering stack for winged liner, where I start by applying a layer of one of the Pearglides first, then add a coordinating powder eyeshadow on top, then a gel or liquid liner on top of that. Even from the bottom of the stack, a little of the glitter still shows through, so you get a subtle sparkling effect!

(They also look incredible smudged out along the lower lash lines.)

    I’ve had Lord it Up for several years, and it really is wonderful! I think I may have a couple others, but I have so many pencils I need to check and see!! They have a teal one I am sure I don’t have so I must get it… 😀

  4. I have a few of them and really enjoy them on my lower lash line.

    I have Petrol and for some reason it breaks all.the.time. It’s a bit old now but it was doing it right after I bought it :/

    Ooh! Lord It Up looks so pretty. I really love a good brown liner with interesting stuff going on. Need to put this on my list to try out.
    I wasn’t even aware that these existed. Then again, MAC has so many products that I feel that I only know about maybe a tenth of their products.

  8. starr says:

    Wow these are soo pretty. I always wrote them off as I was worried they’d be too glittery but they just have such a nice sheen. I might need to add a couple to my wishlist 😛

  9. denise S says:

    I have Designer purple, Black Swan and Petrol blue. I really like them but haven’t used them lately . I remember the purple one hurting my eyes so now I’m careful to keep these away from the waterline !

  10. Savannah says:

    I have two of these and the glitter really irritates my eyes 🙁 the colors and pigment pay off is nice, but I can’t really use them.

  11. Rachel R. says:

    Petrol Blue and Designer Purple are so pretty.

  12. Aditi says:

    Wow! These are so pigmented, Petrol Blue looks the best! I have a thing for blue these days! 😀

    I love the Pearlglide liners so much, I was so happy when they were made permanent! Blackline and Undercurrent are my faves. 🙂

  14. Anna says:

    WOW the texture on those looks incredible! The colors are gorgeous. I love the brown- but honestly I have a couple NYX pencils (the mechanical one in Bronze comes to mind) that look pretty darn similar. I can’t decide if I like mechanical or standard better! standard wastes a LOT of product, but you can’t get a sharp point on mechanical!

    I love how vibrant they are!

    I love these! I ended up trying Petrol Blue and Designer Purple when MAC repromoted them in the Archie’s Girls collection and I’ve been hooked on them ever since. I like smudging them on my bottom lid for a nice shimmering pop of color. I receive tons of compliments every time I wear them
