So. Much. Yes!
Rarely does a liner sweep me off my feet.
I think the last one was MAC Costa Riche. Or was it was BECCA Cabrera…? I’m pretty sure it was one of those two.
Whenever it happens, since it doesn’t happen very often, I almost immediately panic a little. One of my first thoughts is usually along the lines of, “How am I going to function when I wear this down to a nub, which I’ll most certainly do?” Or, how much am I going to freak-the-eff out when I can’t find one of my backups? Because let’s be real — if it’s that good, I’m probably getting a backup. Or two. OK, three.
Seriously, though, I think MAC’s new Technakohl Liner in Practice Makes Perfect is…well, perfect. They should have just called it Perfect and cut out any confusion. I think it’s just about perfect in every single way.
It’s a deep, rich, intensely pigmented bluish green pencil liner with a twist-up tip. Fab for lash lines, of course, but I love, love, LOVE it on my water lines (especially the lower water lines). I think it does wonders for browns eyes, in particular, and I swear mine look more milk chocolatey when I wear it.
It’s fairly no-fuss, too. Compared to some blue liners, where I feel like I have to apply four or five layers to ramp up the intensity to a decent level, I just use two layers of this and I’m good.
On top of that, it’s incredibly smooth and doesn’t migrate or make my sensitive eyes water. I usually reapply after about five hours to freshen it up, which isn’t bad, and even then I’m only adding a little.
Ooh! — the color goes really well with blue, green and khaki clothing (and accessories), and I bet it would also complement gold shadows and golden brown shadows nicely, too.
If you have brown eyes (or hazel eyes, or green eyes), you need Practice Makes Perfect in yo’ life!
There are four Technakohl Liners in the MAC Wash and Dry collection (more reviews here), with the others being marine blue Sudsy, lime Colour Matters and silvery Coin Operated. Sudsy is the only one I haven’t seen in person yet, but neither of the other two are lighting my fire. I’m kinda “meh” about ’em. The gray, I feel like I’ve seen before, and the bright green, while intriguing, also leans toward costume for me.
I dunno… Maybe we just need to spend more time together.
Look for Practice Makes Perfect and the other three Technakohl Liners in the MAC Wash and Dry collection when they arrive May 14 on the MAC website and a week later on May 21 at MAC counters and stores.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Where do you stand on the Technakohls in general? Are you a friend or a foe?
