Review: M.A.C.’s Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Undercurrent


I have quite the obsession with eyeliners, especially black liners (I can’t explain to you the endless amount I own), but there are often times I love wearing coloured liners. Although, I don’t like to wear them on a daily basis, I do like wearing them for certain events. M.A.C. has a wonderful line of eyeliners and I figured why not try some of their intense coloured ones to see what everyone is raving about! This liner is from M.A.C.’s pearlglide intense line. The shade Undercurrent is described as a teal with a pearly shimmery finish. Pearlglide intense eyeliners are supposed to provide rich, luxurious colour with a touch of shimmer and sparkle. The texture of these liners are soft and creamy. The formula is smooth so that it glides on perfectly on your lids without breaking. According to its makers, this liner is long wearing and smudge proof.

My verdict?


This has to be one of the best eyeliners M.A.C. has put out and I am absolutely in love with it. Firstly, the formula is incredible! It’s buttery smooth. The liner glides perfectly on my eyelids. The formula does not feel dry at all. The texture is phenomenal given there’s shimmer in this liner. It’s not rough to touch and there’s no fall out from the shimmer. The texture is rich, luxurious and super creamy. Secondly, the pigmentation of this colour is one of the best I have ever seen. In one sweep, you will get intense colour that’s super opaque. The colour is beautiful! It’s teal but also a dark green at the same time. It’s got a pearly kind of finish. Thirdly, this is completely smudge proof. It literally does not budge until I use makeup remover to remove it. Which brings me to it’s longevity. This is one long-wearing liner. I literally danced through the night and it didn’t move at all. Lastly, this is a versatile product which can be used as a liner and as a shadow or even a base (to make certain colours pop). All in all, this is one fantastic liner. At $16 (USD), this is completely worth every penny and I can’t wait to try the rest of the colours in this range. MAC, thank you for creating an eyeliner that has the perfect amount of shimmer without any sort of fall out. I am so impressed with this product and recommend everyone to try it out. You can purchase this at any MAC store, counters or online!
