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!!!
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 :(

MAC usually doesn't disappoint. This is a great product. It applies seamlessly. Brushstroke has deep pigment and stays in place. I do try to not fall in love with their products because they discontinue them all the time. So my advice is stock up if you find a product you love!
CM from OR
I love how this is an actual brush! I use this when I do graphic liner or a wing. SO easy. It's a nice true matte black. IN LOVE
Sabrina from Chicago
This eyeliner is awesome. It's so easy to apply and great for beginners. This eyeliner doesn't Smear easily off but it could be better if it was waterproof. I love this eyeliner and I would recommend this product to everyone.
Cheekymom from St. Louis, MO
Received "BLACK" and worked as expected. It is not waterproof, which I like. I don't like having to scrub the skin around my eyes, causing stretching of my skin, so like that it comes off easily with my daily face cloths. It applies VERY dark and works fantastic! It lasts all night on me and once dry doesn't come off in the creases of my eyes either. I will be ordering the Brown as well.
In love with liner from Phoenix AZ
I've tried every liner out there and for the longest time i was a Kat Von De eyeliner user and then I tried this eyeliner and it's the only one I'll use. The staying power alone is enough to make me switch. The ease of how you can make a thin line or fat line is awesome
Ariana from Palm Springs
Love how it's black and it's ready to apply
M. A. from Columbus Ohio
Ordered this eyeliner because I was looking for one that stays on all day. What a disappointment! Ordered the black but it's a very muted faded black. Doesn't even last an hour! Would not recommend this product and wish I had my money back…
Definitely NOT waterproof! What a joke.
Boymommy from Boston, MA
Easy on ...easy off! I own black and the brown! Gorgeous colors ...stay put on my oily lids too!! I love the brown especially on my lower lash line. It's a lighter brown. But actually, it's perfect!! Not too dark. And the blacks spot on too!! They seem to last several months and I wear them daily! Woowoot!
Antonia from CT
This liner was recommended to me by one of the sales people on the floor. It's color does not compare to my benefit liner. I needed to put on multiple coats, and after just a few uses, there is like NOTHING left. Waste of money

I like my eyeliner very inky black and very matte. This was neither. The brush tip was nice and easy to control, but the liquid itself went on splotchy and uneven. I needed multiple coats to get past a charcoal gray shade to the black I wanted. I figure it will be good to keep in the office in case I need something for a touch up, but this is definitely not going to be my main eyeliner.
Jeanne from Colorado
Really disappointing, and NOT waterproof as advertised. Even when used with MAC primer it stays put for 30 minutes at best. I bought because I love Liquidlast but it is no longer offered in any other color than black (I'm too old for black eyeliner)...but now looks like I now have to look somewhere else.
Disappointed from Louisville, KY
Eyeliner does not last for me so I was excited and hopeful to try this. Went on smooth (although quite faint... it required multiple applications) at 11:30am. Ran a few errands and here we are less than two hours later: my right eye has almost no remnant of eyeliner at all.

Holly from Ft lauderdale
Ordered new bottle and it goes on dry and sticky. I pulled my old one out of the trash cause I thought I had thrown the wrong one away. I have an old brown color for a year or two same kind and it still goes on smooth.I think this is old inventory or lower standards. I have always been happy with MAC I the past. I hope they will replace . If it is still bad I will not try again.
anonymous from Colorado Springs
This liner is just amazing! It goes on bold, easy to remove, has a nice formula, and has a nice stroke. It could be used for stage makeup, everyday street makeup, or any makeup look that requires a black liner. I have tried my drugstore liners but none of them compare to this amazing one. However, even though many of the cheaper liners do not compare to this one or is not as good, I still think that it is too pricey.
QB from SW Washington
I was really excited to try MACs liquid liner. I remember a long time ago using there crème eyeliner. It was in the shade black with glitter in it but i believe they discontinued it. I am no expert when it comes to putting on eyeliner and i do use eye primer (if that makes an difference) however, I tried this eyeliner on the first day and it bled and rubbed off within an hour. I thought maybe it was the new foundation i was using (Dior air flash) so i tried my IT cosmetics CC cream and it did the same thing. It barely lasted an hour, I am very disappointed. I don't know if its the user or the eyeliner itself as again I'm no expert but, it just didn't work for me.
Alyssa from Atlanta
This makes lining my eyes soooo easy. I used to use the KVD one but when this came out I thought I would try it. I haven't bought the KVD one since.
Marvie from Reno,NV
I received the product dry/empty.
Liner obsessed from Waukee, Iowa
Mac brushstroke has been the best eyeliner I have ever used for my normal to oily lids. I've used sooo many over the years and the black brush tip outperforms any of the other closely marketed ones with felt tips. I bought the brush brown in hopes of doing more subtle/chill looks and I'd say it's as nice as the black- but it must be a color issue with browns needing more than one layer to really get the definition you need. But at least MAC does NOT skip and life OFF the color if you go over it more than once. Yay. Hope this helps!
Bold liner lover from Australia
This eye liner is watery and needs several applications to achieve a dark line, which flakes off within a couple of hours. The product advertises 24-hour liner but failed to live up to this promise. I had to reapply several times throughout the day. You I feel ripped off.
Thickandthangy from San Diego, CA
This is the BEST liquid liner pen you can get. It's has bristles. No tugging. Always a sharp line. You can get super close to the lash line and it stays this. 10/10 would recommend. Amazing.
Cyndi from San Diego
This is the only liquid liner I use it's perfect and thin. Easy use
Esali from NH
I bought this eyeliner with a gift card I received. I was excited to try a good quality liner since I've only used over the counter types. The website said "best seller" so I bought it. It's almost like I received a dried out loner! I shook it, pressed hard and nothing. The color is so faint and looks like I barely have anything on! Would not recommend this product at all especially for the price!
Lynne from Oregon
I used so many different brand of eyeliner and they were not great. I saw Lisa model MAC brand on Instagram so I gave it a shot. I have to say I really loved the Brushstokes Eyeliner so I purchased 2 more.
