Most Helpful Positive Review I don't understand the 1-star reviews
I absolutely love this product and don't get the one-star reviews. I store all of my liquid brush eyeliners pointy-side down and get a smooth, thin line every day until it's been about 3 months and it's time to replace them anyway. I'm staring down 40 and get compliments on my cat eye from 20-something strangers on a regular basis and have even given tutorials in the bathroom at work. The liquid side is perfect for getting the wings and the smudgey side is perfect for just lining the waterline. You won't get precision from that side of this pencil and that's kind of the whole point of it being double-sided. One smudgey side, one precision side.
Most Helpful Critical Review Awful
One of the worst liners I've used! So I've been on the hunt for the perfect liner. I had no preference between gel,pencil, or liquid since I'm experienced with them all. I wanted something that's very long lasting, smudge proof/waterproof. I first tried the gel liner in dark brown which applied very well but was not long lasting and would smudge so easily. I went back to the store to exchange it for black to see if that would make any difference. The girl never told me if I wasn't happy with that I wouldn't be able to return it for a refund. So I go back planning on returning it because the black also sucked and I can't. I decide I'll try this two in one liner hoping it lives up to its name as an all day water proof liner. Well nope. The liquid end dried out in less than two weeks and the pencil end also sucks and they didn't leave enough space between the cap and liner so if you forget to roll it down all the way it will smash it. Anyway I don't know what happened to Mac I used them a lot in high school and thought I'd give them another try. Bummed because it was a huge waste of money, I lost mine but you can save yours!!!

Extremely dry, flaky, does not apply even lines.
Doesn't make a difference if you shake it or store upside down with the applicator facing downwards. I've been doing winged eyeliner for 15 years and never had an eyeliner this bad. Kylie Liquid Liner is a close second to this though.
Very little product inside
Brooke from Seattle
I really enjoyed the retractable part the most .. glides on easy and i smudged out the lash line and got a smoky look .. didn't smear all day for me .. however it only lasted 2 weeks tops and i felt I really didn't even use that much each application..bummed out
Such a disappointment
Ariii from Cali
Save your money smears so bad !!
Perfect go to eye liner!
Dani from Florida
I tried this product as a free sample with another purchase and I was shocked at how much I loved it! I'm one of those people who puts on makeup no matter what I'm doing that day, and I was impressed at how easily this went on and how well it stays put-even through intense gym sessions. Absolutely my new favorite eyeliner!
Love this liner
CJ from Florida
I'm not sure what the people who gave this bad reviews were doing with their liner, but I had great results. Stays on my eyes, doesn't run, & it's well paired when used with the MAC waterproof Mascara. I live in hot, humid climate, & generally nothing stays on with the sweating. I'm buying more lol.
Pick a different liquid liner
Joanna from San Marcos, CA
The liquid liner portion took forever to ink up. When it did ink up, it slowly faded. Needed to do my liner quickly for my birthday and this just completely failed. I even tried pumping the liquid liner portion into the back of my hand so that the liquid would prime onto the tip... still didn't do much once I needed to apply to my eye. Do yourself a favor and just buy a separate liquid liner.
New favorite purchase
Love a good cat eye from Tennessee
This is a great product if you want a fine line but also want to be able to add some smudge line.
Jessica autism momma from Rochester MN
I use the liquid side the most and was looking forward to waterproof all day wear and put it on and with in 30 mins of snuggles on the couch with my husband it had smeared all over the side of my face.
Not what I wanted
Blaženka from Zagreb, Croatia
Last week i bought M·A·C DUAL DARE ALL-DAY WATERPROOF LINER at the urging of the saleswoman. I wanted to buy BRUSHSTROKE 24-HOUR LINER but it was out of stock. She ashure me that this dual liner is exact the same as the one i was looking to buy,but it is not.
The liners brush is hard, and it is not easy to made lines with it, and after 2 days of not using it the top of the brush is dry so i had to put some lines first on my hand to get it to work. The product does not last all day, I have problem with my eyes so they sometimes tears on the wind, and the liner gets messy when that happens. I waste my money on this product.
Nessa from Las cruces New Mexico
I was very disappointed with this product. Within the 1st few weeks the liquid side dried out and the pencil side didn't last long either. It would run as the day went on and be so hard to take off leaving raccoon eyes.
Not waterproof or for all day wear!!
Tea from Virginia
As a first time MAC user I am very disappointed!!! This eyeliner smudges if even touched slightly by my hair . A total waste of money as I can't even wear it because it smudges so bad .
Kiss from Pasadena Md.
I guess MAC thought it would be a good idea to combine a liquid felt tip pencil with the mechanical pencil, but if I wnted a liquid felt tip pencil I would buy one. I really loved the mechanical pencil, it was a standard go to pencil and it last a long time. Now with the dual new pencil, which I don't ever use the felt tip end, I am running out of the mechanical pencil very fast and needing a new one. This is getting ridiculous, so I guess I will have to find another go to pencil. Very sad
Do not recommend this product
K from St. Louis, MO
I noticed the pencil starting sticking a few days into using it. A week after using it the pencil completely fell out. Very annoying.
Felt-tip is EH and Pencil is WORSE
Becca from Michigan
Where do I begin? With the bad news or worse news? The felt-tip liquid side is OKAY at best. It's nice when it works. I always kept the cap on and sometimes the liquid was always dry. I could never get a continuous line especially out of the very sharpest tip. You know when you flick your eyeliner to do a cat eye and you need that sharp point at the end? It's basically impossible to achieve because no product comes out of the very tip!
Now, about the pencil side. It was fine until more than half of it fell out. When the pencil was still in the applicator, it was dry and i had to cut the back of my hand open trying to warm the pencil tip so that it would glide on my waterline without also cutting my eye open.
I honestly would've given this a 1 star if the felt-tip side didn't work at all. However, I have managed to do my eyeliner with this and use a gel liner & brush to achieve the sharp tip I mentioned before.
Spend your money elsewhere! MAC is an amazing brand but this is a major flop.
Pencil liner falls out
Dw from Kansas City
Have tried this twice, the first time the pencil part smashed up into the lid and fell out. The second time there was hardly any pencil part in it. very disappointed that
Love the liquid, hate the pencil!
Beth from Virginia
I LOVE the liquid side of this eyeliner, it goes on so smooth! This was the first time I had tried this type of liner, that's why I ordered this particular product so in case I couldn't use the liquid I could use the pencil. Well, I've had this since October 2019 and just tried the pencil yesterday and I barely had it rolled out and a decent size of the pencil broke off, then, when I tried to apply it was wouldn't go on! It actually hurt my eyes I was pushing so hard to get it to work. I finally gave up and used the liquid.
Bailey from Ohio
Make me sad to waste money on this ! The pencil fell out on my second try! I should've read the reviews before I bought it ! My mistake
No I wouldn't
Kaushus from California
I was very disappointed with this product and I like to try something new, but this product I was up set after two weeks trying the eyeliner pencil, but the liquid still running strong.. I am trying to find a good eyeliner and so far Stilla is the best
Arii from ????
This eyeliner smears a lot ! Even when it is waterproof ??
Stila has a much better eyeliner !
Mely from Visalia
It don't last at all not even the first minute, it sucks don't waist your money!
Not worth it!
Mely from Visalia
The minute you put it on it starts going everywhere I really dislike it, the one I really love is the liquid eye liner from these same brand!
Don't waste your money
Kelly from NJ
3 times I wasted my money yes, I know first the liner ran out quickly. Second time the liner kept getting smashed in the cap and third I went to go use the liner and it just fell out and into my bathroom sink I was so mad wasted all that money. I will not ever buy this garbage again. Less then 2 weeks. All 3.
Dried out in 2 weeks
Ioana from Cluj-Napoca
The tip of the pen dried out after less then 10 uses. Won't buy it again, for sure
Doesn't last long and caps constantly fall off
Michelle from Seattle
When I found out Mac finally had a waterproof eye liner plus it was double Sudra I was ecstatic... until I've had to purchase two in four months and I only use it only the weekends. The liquid side dries out too fast and the gel side gives a thick line after the first use. Sad I'll have to try to find another product.
Absolutely Love this liner!
