Product Review: Mac Pearlgliders

So in my last post (Style Warriors) I had used this purple glitter eyeliner on my lower lashline. All the comments I received complimented on the purple glitter eyeliner. So I thought I would do a formal product review on this although they are not available right now bu they will be soon! Actually, the collection that will launch this again, is called Love that Look and it'll be available this Fall. The pearlglides were originally launched in Fall 2008 in the collection Suite Array.

Product: 4.5 out of 5
Packaging: 4.5 out of 5
Quality: 4 .5out of 5
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
Price: $3-4
Available: eBay; (fall 2009)

Would I buy this again? Yes, for certain colors.

Pros: They are waterproof which is a big pro to me because I'm eyes are extremely teary. They are also smudgeproof too! The pigmentation of these eyeliner are great as you can see in the picture. They are also pretty creamy so very little tugging is done on the surface of the skin.

Cons: I wish they can apply on the waterline but it doesn't work there. My MUA mentioned that Molasses works on the waterline but I have yet to try it. Although because they are creamy, I noticed that it was kind of difficult to sharpen even though I sharpened it with a Mac pencil sharpener.

Overall: I do have all of the pearlglides but I've only tried Fly-By-Blu and Rave and I've been pretty satisfied with them. The eyeliner (Feline) on my lower lashline frequently smears and runs even when I do set it with an eyeshadow but because I had the pearlglide under my waterline it stopped my waterline eyeliner from running. The eyeliner itself is also smudgeproof. For an everyday wear, I recommend Molasses. For people who frequently uses color, I recommend picking up Rave, Fly-By-Blue, Bankroll, and Wolf. Black Russian isn't as great as I had thought it to be because a girl always needs a good waterproof & smudgeproof eyeliner. Look out for more FOTDs using pearlglides because I can't get enough of these!

Wow I loveee the colors esp the blue, that sucks that you can't apply them on the waterline, cuz that's where I'd be applying them. hehe I was actually thinking of buying the blue one yesterday but good thing I didn't! :D
