MAC Superslick Eyeliner

MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner: MAC (£15.50)

The MAC Superslick liner is apparently exactly the same formula as the Illamasqua Precision Ink liner which I used to use and Loved. I don't know if my tastes have changed or they actually aren't the same formula as no matter how many times I try the Superslick eyeliner I just can't get on with it. It claims to be long wearing,  dry in 15 seconds and apply smoothly. I personally find it flakey, hard to work with, not that black and just overall a bit crap. The lasting power is there but it starts to flake at the first sign of moisture and often looks a bit cracked on the lid. I have sensitive eyes and never experienced a eyeliner that irritates my eyes as much as this one. I think its because its a bit flakey it makes my eyes run a bit, which in turn makes it peel off in chunks. One stroke on the lid and its not totally opaque, but if your not quick at applying the second layer it ends up getting chunkier and which makes it peel off too.

I wouldn't recommend this liner at all! It's not worth the money and it doesn't live up to its claims. For a high end eyeliner it gets two thumbs down from me. I only really bought this as its been compared to the Illamasqua Precision Ink but to be honest I don't think its anything like it. I won't be purchasing either of the eyeliners again in the future as it's turned me off both of them. It is long lasting, but the flakiness irritates my eyes which in turn makes the liner simply peel off. Simply put not worth buying!

    It's a shame that the MAC one is crap.... especially for the price!

  2. This has been so informative, I was thinking about getting this too.
    The best liner I have ever tried is the Collection 2000 Liquid, it's excellent

  4. I don't seem to get on with MAC eyeliners in general, the kohl pencil seems to smudge like buggery :( so annoying when you spend money on a product and it's a complete let down! xx

  6. I swear by MACs black track fluid gel applied with a 209 brush. I have never been able to get along with these pen like tips but am surprised that MAC has produced such a disappointing product. If I ever want a change I know to stay clear of this one :-)

    1. trust me there are tons of terrible mac products! i don't like black track at all after trying other gel eyeliners, its not a true black (in my opinion!) and it smudges way too much! it just doesn't work for me!

  11. I love 'high end' make-up, but liquid eyeliner is the one product I begrudge spending too much on because I'm pretty happy with my cheap Barry m one! Although I am tempted to try out a gel liner x

    1. same here, i think if you find a cheap on you like there really isn't much point splashing out! my favourite is fashionista gel liner or loreal super liner! same with mascara, i hate splashing out on it when drugstore is just as good!

  13. i used to love MAC eyeliners, but found the pen style ones didn't last very long and the gel ones dried out in the pot so quickly, even if you have the lid on properly.
    i still can't find the perfect one that goes on super black, doesn't irritate my eyes or smudge.

    great review!

    what do you think the best pen/felt tip style eyeliner is?

  15. Thanks for the honest review. I'm rubbish at applying all liquid eyeliners so I will definitely avoid this and stick to my gel eye liner. X

  16. I didn't have any of these issues at all. The only reason I'm not repurchasing is because I don't really like the shiny finish; I prefer matte. Shame it was such a let down for you - weird how somethings can work so well for some people and not for others.

    Funny coincidence that you compared it to the Illamasqua liner because that's what I was looking at as a replacement.

  17. Nice to see an honest review. I didn't like it either tbh, I just didn't think it was 'black' enough. I like my liner thick haha! I'm a huge fan of the Maybelline Lasting Drama gel liner though - it's opaque, long lasting, relatively cheap (I found it better than the Bobbi Brown gel liner) and easy to apply (although I know most people don't get on with gel liner haha!)

    Much love,

  18. Just shows you dont always have to pay loads for quality! I love the loreal one and nothing can beat it! x

  19. Never tried this before and I probably won't, I also have sensitive eyes. I think that Mac mascaras and eyeliners are way too over priced for what they are. L'Oreal Carbon Gloss eyeliner is my all time favourite. x

  20. I've had this eyeliner for a while and have had all the same problems that you described! I thought it was just me and I wanted to love it, but never did - I'll be sticking to my cheapie Rimmel liquid eyeliner! xx
