If MAC ever discontinues Powersurge Eye Kohl ($15), I’ll hunt down every pencil at every MAC counter within a 30-mile radius, fo’ reals.

My love for this shimmery golden bronze eye pencil runs deeeeep. A MAC artist introduced me to it about two years ago, and ever since that fateful day this pencil has graced my waterline many a time.

On days when I don’t want the harshness of a black or brown liner, I like Powersurge. I think it adds just the right touch of emphasis to my lower waterline without leaving me looking too overdone.

Here she is in action with MAC Style Black…


Curious about Powersurge? Here are a few earlier posts:

I love it with gold, purple, bronze and green eyeshadows, but I think it also looks great on its own … or with curled lashes and tons of mascara, yay! 🙂

Have you met MAC Powersurge?

    Mmm, that looks like a colour to keep in one’s collection… I love subtle looks on those days I’m really exhausted but want to look a little pretty 😉 so that sounds good. Unfortunately I’ve been spending lots of money these days, but I might just wander over to a Mac counter sometime soon…

    I have never seen this kohl pencil before. I like that it as an antiqued finished to it. I think it would make a lovely base too for gold toned eyeshadows. My favourite MAC kohl is Tarnish.

    Really pretty 🙂

  12. Rose C says:

    This looks like an eyeliner version of Woodwinked eye shadow. If they ever discontinued this you could always line your eyes with the eyeshadow!

  13. Glosslizard says:

    Dang, girl, that is a gorgeous eye look! I’ll have to check out that color, although it reminds me of a warmer gold version of one of my lower lashline go-to’s, Benefit’s creaseless cream shadow in Skinny Jeans!

    Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

  14. Tiffany says:

    Happy Thanksgiving Karen! I really want this pencil now ! It looks great on you! I have a Stila trio I bet it would look great with!

  15. Tavia says:

    Hi Karen! This pencil is great, I also like the color. Definitely must try it cause most of my eyeshadows are similar with this one’s color. 🙂

    I’m in love with it too. I normally use it in my lower waterline when i use buried treasure in the top one. They look really good together.

  18. Roseline says:
