MAC Technakohl Liner
Advantages: nice long lasting, creamy consistency, which holds its own colour well
I was given a MAC giftcard for my birthday and since then I have found myself accruing a lot of lovely products! I was never a big wearer of makeup but since turning 24 I decided to try and glam up a bit, as I now realise I won't be in my 20s forever! I got excited buying a few things so I did end up putting some money towards my purchases but one of the fab things I bought was this Technakohl eyeliner.
The eyeliner comes in a plastic casing which looks a bit like a really long thin pen felt tip pen, with a black click on lid on top. It is written down the side the colour (I have graphblack) and it says Technakohl Eyeliner Kajal in silver lettering along the side.
The eyeliner itself is slightly a crayon type consistency, with a pointed tip but really thin and slightly creamy. It is easy to use by twisting the base to make the eyeliner rise out of the bottom so to give more product for a more defined finish. The eyeliner is super easy to use, and whilst I own a collection 2000 liquid eyeliner, I also find this eyeliner more suited for a dark and simple look around the eyes. As it works more like a pencil I find it easier to use and I can do straight lines easier without having to use a cotton bud and some eye makeup remover to tidy up the jagged edges I tend to draw around my eyes when I use a liquid eyeliner. The only downside with a eyeliner of this consistency is that it is quite flat and although it makes for a decent tool to emphasise the eyeline, it is not at all good for doing any flicks or tips at the end of the eye for a stand out, orchestrated look.
The black colour that comes out is quite dark and comes out easily but I did prefer to to 2 coats just to give it a more full and noticeable effect. Saying this, the eyeliner is really long lasting, for example I put it on at 7.30am today when getting ready for work and now at 7.10pm it looks just as good as it did this morning! I don't think it is waterproof only as from a tester on my hand it smudges easily but I am no cry baby so this is no bother for me!
Overall I love this eyeliner, and it costs £13.50 from MAC which is a bit more pricier than hoped for but I know it will last me ages. Being a crayon I think it will last longer than my liquid eyeliner and being a lady who likes to experiment I definitely think it is good to have some variety in my make up bag!
Summary: decent eyeliner from MAC - another happy purchase from me!
