MAC Blooz Eye Kohl

The long-running Unsung Heroes series here on Makeup and Beauty Blog features some of my all-time favorite permanent collection products.

MAC COSTA RICHE: And there she goes! She’s grabbing Blooz, YET AGAIN.

MAC TEDDY: Seriously!? What’s up with that? She was using us every day, and now it’s like she doesn’t even know we exist. All she cares about is Blooz.


MAC COSTA RICHE: Yeah, and it’s giving me a case of the blues.


MAC COSTA RICHE: I’m not kidding! I miss being on her water lines…

MAC TEDDY: Me too. ๐Ÿ™

MAC COSTA RICHE: You know what I want right now?




MAC COSTA RICHE: Let’s make some brownies.


If eyeliners could talk… I bet if Costa Riche and Teddy could talk, they’d be talking mad sh*t about MAC Blooz ($16.50). It’s one of MAC’s sassiest, sexiest dark navy liners, and it’s the only MAC Eye Kohl I’ve been wanting to wear lately.

But let’s back up a little… Cue the falling leaves and jingle bells! *jingle, jingle, jingle*

Wearing MAC Blooz on my water lines

Every December, like clockwork, my eyes freak out, and the only liners I’m able to comfortably wear are the old-school MAC Eye Kohls. The dry, crisp air outside coupled with the dry, warm air inside from the heater, which runs nonstop this time of year, wreaks havoc on my lash and water lines. They practically cry out for moisture and won’t tolerate long-wearing eye products like gel liners that are just too drying.

I wouldn’t say that MAC’s old-school Kohls are moisturizing, but for whatever reason, they don’t bother my eyes in fall and winter when so many other things do. I was all about Teddy and Costa Riche for the past few winters, but now I’ve got the Blooz.

MAC Blooz Eye Kohl

Blooz doesn’t exactly scream “take me home with you!” at the counter, but ooh-la-la! — please, get it on your lash and water lines.

It’s a deep, almost black navy blue with a hint of pearly shimmer (sometimes I swear I can also see purple up in the mix). I’m surprised all the time by how well it goes with so many different eye makeup looks. I wear it often with everyday brown neutrals, but I think it also looks great with silver eyeshadow (fun!), and dramatic smoky blue looks and brown looks, too.


I like what Blooz does for my brown eyes. I think it makes them look richer and more chocolatey, but I bet it would work just as well with hazel, green or even blue eyes.

Just as an FYI, the MAC Eye Kohls have a fairly soft, smudgy texture and formula, so if you’re used to long-wearing liners that set quickly and then last for 16 hours, Blooz might not be for you. That doesn’t bother me, though. I don’t mind having to reapply it once or twice throughout the day.

If you’re interested, you can find Blooz rocking right now in the MAC permanent collection at counters and online.

    Oh, I knew as soon as I saw the first pic that Blooz would have been screaming “take me home with you” to you. ๐Ÿ™‚ No one rocks the blues like you do!

  7. Tatiana says:

    So, so, so pretty! How does Blooz compare to Tom Ford Eye Defining Pencil in Navy Black? Other than being $23.50 less. Inquiring minds want to know.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tatiana,

      Good eye! They both have a similar vibe. I think TF’s is slightly more black, less navy. Maybe a touch more pearl compared to Blooz.

      • Tatiana says:

        I just compared your swatches. I can see how Blooz is a touch more purply than the TF. For once, I think I like the less expensive alternative. Go MAC!

  8. Stacey says:

    I love this!! What is your lipstick – it’s perfect!

  9. Rachel R. says:

    I love dark navies like this. It looks fantastic with your brown eyes.

  10. breyerchic04 says:

    Anytime I wear a blue liner, I get told I look rested. So I need this, clearly.

  11. Erin says:

    I love the pop of blue. It makes you look really awake!
