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.)
Check ’em out one of these days if you haven’t before. They’re permanent, so they’re always available online and at MAC stores and counters.
