Most Helpful Positive Review BEST LIQUID LINER EVER MADE! NEVER DISCONTINUE! MORE COLORS
I have ALWAYS had trouble with eyeliners living up to their long lasting promises and/or eyeliners transferring to create raccoon eyes under my bottom lid...SO FRUSTRATING! Until I happily discovered that MAC came out with the BRUSTROKE LINER! This is by leaps & bounds the best liquid marker eyeliner out there and I swear I've tried them all! As long as you treat it like a marker in your hand & take your time, you basically cannot make a mistake! I can make the thinnest, most delicate line or the thickest, most bold line I choose, it's kind of the choose your own adventure of eye liners! If I mess up, it's quite easy to fix either by going over it again with another stroke or using a q-tip to fix my flub...it typically does not smudge everywhere as long as I am careful not to drag it. It's all in the care you take though, as with anything...you need to slow down, stay close to your lash line, make sure you're light-handed to start (you can always add more...it's harder to subtract if you do too much!) and you'll be good to go! I am the costume and makeup director for a dance company and this liner POPS on stage. Enough gushing...you MUST try this product if you love a no muss, no fuss, perfect, rich, bold black defined eye! (unless you're using the brown...which gives good color too, I just tend to used the black more regularly.)
My ONLY complaint is that there aren't enough color options...I am ALWAYS looking for a good dark purple liner in this formulation with the same lasting power and maybe a dark green. PRETTY PLEASE MAC...MAKE MORE COLORS IN THE BRUSTROKE LINER!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrible replacement
I use to use the Penultimate eyeliner which I had been using for YEARS! Until MAC had the bright idea to discontinue it and replace it with this one I hate the felt brush it's all over the place what I loved about the Penultimate was that the felt tip was movable but firm so that it wasn't all over the place hate this eyeliner and can't find a replacement for my penultimate :(

Product is great and very easy to use on your eyes.
So easy to use!
Makeup Queen from Prince Frederick, MD
It's the best! Better than other more expensive brands. Easy to apply for a day or night look. I have shaky hands from medication, and I still get it right every time.
Best eye liner ever!
Blaženka from Zagreb, Croatia
The best eye liner ever. Long-lasting, easy to apply. I have tried many other brands but this one is my favourite. The brush is soft, just enough to be able to make the lines you want. I used it daily and it's such good quality that after 5-6 months is the same just like on the day i opened it. I highly recommend this product
Where is it? Lol
KP from North Hollywood CA
I should've listened to the reviews, but I have the black eyeliner and loved that one but the brown is pretty terrible. You can't see it, and even after applying several coats the brown is still watered down.
I'm going to look to exchange it for another brown liner. Photo of colors on my hand for reference. Black is a yay the Brown is a nay.
Good, not great
Lisa from Austin, TX
Love the brush tip, love the opaque and matte black line, but this eyeliner is no match for oily eyelids. Make the mistake of rubbing your eye with this eyeliner on and your eye makeup will be ruined. Kat Von D's tattoo eyeliner and K-Palette's Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h are better products.
i buy this product all the time
classy lady from Gilbert, AZ
I wish this product was sold in your stores and not for online ordering only.
Karen from EHT, NJ
Easy and clean application. Stays on all day.
Longest Lasting and Best Value Eyeliner Applicator
Serena from Pittsburgh, PA
I don't know what all of the negative comments are about, but maybe people are using it wrong? You need to shake it and store it with the tip pointing down. The formula starts out a bit thin, but after shaking and proper storage, it works so well.
I HATE felt-tip liners because they get so gunked up with eye shadow, some I've tried after only one swipe with the liner. This eyeliner is seriously the best I've ever used and I will continue using it. I'm only thinking about buying a new one almost a year later because I'm starting to worry about expiration and germs, it still works better than all of my newer eyeliner pens.
bri from florida
I love it so much.
Not what I hoped
Sam from USA
I bought this eyeliner after reading all the good reviews, and I was a little disappointed. It is very faded, and takes multiple strokes to go on. Also uneven when applied, as it sticks to some places and not to others. Dried out after just one month.
Lasted over a year with great application
Nichole from Oregon
This is hands down my favorite eyeliner ive ever had, i bought my last pen just over a year ago and it just now went dry. Ive never gotten more precise angle or wing than i have with this eyeliner and once applied it stays put for days if you let it. 100% recommend to anyone.
Jen from Seattle
I'm no expert at liquid liner, but this was easy for me to use. The tip was firm enough that I felt enough control but fine enough to still leave delicate line the lighter you let up pressure. I've used one other that was expensive that I hated (won't say which).
Tbell from KC
The worst liner ever. It's light black, you have to go over the eyelid 4-6 times just to get a black finish. Pat McGrath makes the best eyeliner. One stroke is all you need.
So so close - WHY?
KP from Seattle
Finally, a BROWN pen-style liner! Great color, awesome staying power... dries SHINY? For those of us who don't want to look like we've lined our eyes with vinyl, this is a miss.
AVOID!! LINER IS DRY AND OLD
Angie from San Diego
i purchased the brushstroke 24 hr liner in black via online, because i had previously purchased 1 in store.i must say this is not the same quality liner that i purchased via in-store purchase.
DO NOT BUY THIS
-liner is NOT 24hrs
-liner is NOT waterproof
-quality of product is very amateur.
AVOID THIS ITEM COMPLETE RIP OFF! UPON OPENING THE ITEM AND APPLYING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME I NOTICED THE LINER WAS COMPLETELY DRY,THE LIQUID DOES NOT COME OUT OR FLOW. MAC SENT AN OLD DRIED OUT LINER. :( i will not be repurchasing again.
ps from illinois
This eyeliner is my absolute favorite. It works perfectly everytime and it never skips. I do wish it was slightly cheaper but it really is money well spent.
sav from texas
I usually love MAC but this was horrible. I did like how it was easy to apply and very smooth. The tip also didn't fray, which is something I noticed with my usual Too Faced Better Than Sex eyeliner. However, the pigment is a joke and it is not long lasting or smudge proof in the slightest.
Not Too Great
Becca from Buckeye, AZ
I really expected more from this pen since it comes from MAC. It was runny and a bit transparent, I thought it would be super dark. I don't hate it, but i don't love it either. I will finish it and will probably stick to NYX's Epic Ink liner or my favorite, Stila's Stay All-Day liner.
Wonderful tip to apply eyeliner.
Evie from Suburb in north Denver.
Needed an eyeliner that had a nice thin tip to apply with. I don't like thick tips, it applies too thick of eyeliner.
Adina from NYC
After trying this in the store, I was hooked. It goes on super smoothly and very thin line. Totally buildable if you go for a heavier line, or like to get creative at the outer edge. If you make a mistake, a quick dab of a damp Q-tip cleans it right up. Lasts all day, and removes easily.
Regan from Washington State
This eyeliner was recommended to me as the BEST long-wear liquid liner for long, sweaty days. However, although this liner looked great when first applied and was easy to put on, it transferred horribly and I was having to constantly wipe my upper eyelids before a really important interview to keep from looking like a fool. This was unacceptable especially at such a high price tag. Waste of money. Returning.
Both colours are amazing
izzy from nyc
This eyeliner is absolutely amazing, it stays on better than anything else I've used in 20 years of eye lining. My only complaint is that the brown is a little too transparent and the black is too black for my light skin tone. But I know most ladies want the deepest blackest black for eyeliner so I think that's a plus really. I use the brown, it's a little transparent but its also incredibly forgiving, unlike the black, u cant mess this up, hmm maybe that's a plus too. It takes me like 20 seconds to do a catflick liner on both eyes. I then go over it with a fine eyeliner brush and black powder shadow. It loks incredible and it results in the ultimate staying power. I work in a hot steamy bar, I walk around and sweat all night and this stays on perfectly for 8 hours. Miraculous. Please don't ever discontinue.
Had High Hopes
Danielle F from Milwaukee, WI
I love a winged eyeliner & really hoped this would be a quick option for my daily routine. I do like it, but only used it a handful of times before it dried up. The actual product is good, just wasn't worth it for the amount of uses I got out of it.
KerriC from Montgomery, AL
This is the first liner that is super easy to apply, precise and stays all day looking like I just put it on! This is now my go-to eyeliner and the only liner that I'll ever use again! So easy to apply! Goof proof! Best quality liner ever!
ALmakeuplvr from AL
This is my favorite eyeliner ever! I love how easy it is to apply and that it stays out all day long. No smudges. It looks great and people ask me all the time what eyeliner I am wearing. Could not recommend this more!
