I'm quite sure all beauty chicks can relate to the saga I'm about to tell. It seems I've been on a neverending quest for the perfect eyeliner for as long as I can remember. I've searched high and low for that one perfect pencil to complete me ... adding just the right amount of oomph to a smoky eye, but stopping just short of that crazy Cleopatra look so many seem destined to appropriate.
I don't even approach the scariness of liquid eyeliner for fear of long, streaky lines finding their way off my eyes and down my cheeks. And lining the inner rims? Forget it ... too many have made me look like a drunken raccoon -- or worse, the liner has somehow lodged itself in my eyes, making them red, puffy and watery to no end!
So imagine my wonderment and awe when I stumbled upon the most seemingly sublime eyeliner. No big surprise here, it's made by M.A.C -- a line that seems to turn out more amazingly perfect products than I could even count! What is this wondrous tool, you ask? None other than the Powerpoint Eye Pencil -- which comes in 17 great shades that range from your typical matte finishes to the more daring metallic and shimmery. Check out gorgeous hues like Navy Stain, So There Jade and Out to Sea, or stick with the basics like Stubborn Brown and Grey Utility.
But my absolute favorite has to be Engraved -- a deeper-than-deep black which goes on smooth, doesn't smudge and stays on for hours. Best of all, the liner is waterproof, so no messy eyes here!
