I'm not really a person who buys much MAC and an eyeliner is definitely not something I would usually buy but years ago my mum tried someones MAC kohl in Smolder and fell in love. She instructed me to pick one up for her and I remember at the time she said she loved it because it didn't smudge or wear off on her. I thought that was quite weird because from what I knew of Smolder it was a kohl people used to smudge on their lash line for that smokey/smouldering look. The MAC lady even directed me towards a more long lasting formula but my mum wanted this specific kohl so that's what I bought. This now retails for £14.
|Bottom line - light swatch|
Middle - One firm swatch
Top - 3 swatches built up
It isn't the most pigmented or creamiest of liners I've come across and isn't something I would pick up myself given the choice. Although it is good at what it is meant to do I feel you could use cheaper creamy eye liners and smudge it to get the same effect. So in short the hype is a bit lost on me.
Till next time...Toodles! :)
