Review Overview

Eye Brow Pencils are automatic, nonretractable, ultra-sleek pencils that apply easily and impart soft color without being greasy or smudging. The colors are brow-perfect, but don’t ask us to explain the sexually charged names such as Stud, Lingering, and Fling!

M.A.C. Cosmetics At-A-Glance

What more can one say for this long-standing makeup line whose products have spoken eloquently for themselves for years? In many ways, M.A.C. Cosmetics is a pivotal line not only for makeup artists but also for any in-the-know cosmetics consumer. Although M.A.C. has several singularly outstanding products, they generally excel by virtue of the range of choices offered. The color selection for everything from lipsticks to foundations is exceptional. Most of the makeup brushes are beautiful, full, and soft, as well as properly sized to fit the contours of the face and eyes.

When it comes to skincare you may be tempted to dismiss the small assortment M.A.C. offers and skip right to their makeup with its well-earned positive reputation. But doing so would mean missing a handful of beautifully formulated products that are worth trying. By no means is M.A.C.'s skin-care line one-stop shopping (at least not if you have blemishes, skin discolorations, or require more than a couple options per category), but you'll find more than just the color products impressive here, and the prices aren't unreasonable either!

M.A.C.'s salespeople are often trained makeup artists, too. This is especially true in the freestanding M.A.C. boutiques, where the staff tends to be true makeup artists.

Note: M.A.C. sets itself apart from other beauty brands by staying ahead of the curve by launching a seemingly-constant rotation of impressive limited edition products, usually with fashion-forward themes. Though it's impossible to review every limited edition product, many of M.A.C.'s are as impressive as those in their permanent collection.

Strengths: Some impressive moisturizers; praiseworthy foundations in a mostly gorgeous range of shades; good concealers; several great powder-based products including blush, bronzer, and eyeshadow in various finishes; dizzying array of lipstick shades in mostly sumptuous formulas; several very good mascaras (regular and waterproof); top-notch makeup brushes; many of the Prep + Prime products work as claimed.

Weaknesses:A few products with high levels of potential skin irritants.

does not last

even though M.A.C. has awesome colors for the brow liner and it lines perfectly, the biggest let down about this liner is that it crumbles very easily. the product did not last more than two weeks. I went to Anastasia Beverly Hills products and have not been disappointed.

M.A.C Eye Brow pencil

I'm surprised this got a good rating. I find it breaks off all the time when filling in and then it's done by the time i know it because of how much it breaks off! I also find for dark brows, the colours look too tatooted and not natural.

Th absolute BEST brow pencil for blondes!

I have tried every pencil and powder there is and nothing comes close to this for ease of application, natural look and perfect colour. I have blonde, sparse (read non-existent) eyebrows and MAC's Fling is the only brow stuff I have ever found that looks like brow hairs and not badly applied paint. That being said, they don't put a lot of it in the tube.

Highly Recommend

A breeze to apply, especially w/ the thin point that doesn't break off....wears all day w/o fading or smearing...the only thing that would be better would be to have a spoolie brush on the end. I had to return Stud because it was really dark, only for really dark hair...but Spiked was perfect.
