Rated 4.18 out of 5 stars
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 :(

I had high hopes for this product since the MAC eye shadows are unbeatable, but the brush tip was dry and difficult to draw with. I've been using drugstore eyeliner and I think I may just go back to stick with it.

I do have the 2 other eyeliner MAC and thought this one was going to work the same as my pencil and waterproof one at it says 24hr but I extremely dislike this one. I do not recommend.
k from san antonio
i liked it lasted me a good while before fading easy to remove, just pricey.
Bianca from Manteca
I have tried more than my fair share of liner and this is hands down the best. It lasts a long time and you always get a beautiful wing!
Maggie from Cincinnati OH
Very watery and faint. Personally not what I was looking for but you might like it if you aren't wanting a heavy eyeliner

Disclaimer: I received this product free from Bzzagent for testing purposes but the opinions expressed remain 100% my own honest thoughts. I recently was looking for an eyeliner that not only was pigmented enough but also stood up to my hooded lids. Often times I would apply the most recommended and loved eyeliners and found it smudged an hour or two later. I felt like maybe there was no match for my eyeshape since everything else had been dissapointing but thankfully this was different. It stood up in a workout and didn't budge. I was pleasantly surprised that it was hyped up as much as other brands or products are. Definetly underrated for the quality and longevity of the product! I will continue repurchasing as long as the formula is not changed!

Bought this for NYE and had to return the next day. Immediately dried out fresh out of the box.
Bgcha from Indiana
I received this product free in return of a review and I love it! Every liquid eyeliner I had ever tried was always "heavy" on my eyes & I was so surprised when I put it on and it felt like I didn't even have it on. It lasted all day & I was even able to swim without it coming off. 10/10 recommend.
Valerie from Chicago
I love the way the eyeliner lays on the lid and the coverage is perfect. I would recommend this eyeliner for those who want a precise line.
Mac liner from New York
Wow I'm amazed by this liner it's so pigmented and long lasting and it really stays 24 hours. Other benefits include being budge proof. I accidentally rubbed my eyes while wearing this and it didn't even budge. I'm so impressed i will continue using this as an everyday product !

This Mac eyeliner is long lasting it last all day the black color is not a shiny color it looks smooth what I like about this product is that is long lasting it doesn't smudge and it easily removes with makeup remover.
Stephanie from Sussex, NJ
This eyeliner is great. It glides perfectly and it doesn't bleed out. I like that it feels like a pen so it's easy to put on. It has a good pigment and doesn't smear. I am not sure if it's waterproof but it definitely doesn't rub off easily. However I like that it comes off easily with make up remover.
Eevee from Las vegas
Love love love this liner. The tip is so thin and it's perfect for doing a classic elegant top lid. Stays all day and I don't have to worry about checking it. So dainty, I love it
Marcela from Virginia
The eyeliner I have is in the color Brushblack. When first applied it looks dark but lightens when it dries so it's more of a light black color. The brush tip is very precise which works perfectly for winged eyeliner. It stays in place without bleeding and lasts all day. I highly recommend if you're looking for eyeliner to last you all day.
MAC 24 hr eyeliner from Dallas, TX
I have worn this for at least 12 hours and it lasted. However, I am not a big fan of the brush. The color is matte and nicely pigmented but it's kinda hard to apply evenly. I've seen better eyeliner for less price. I don't think I would recommend this for someone that is starting with eyeliner.
eva from nj
mac is always the best and good quality. can't go wrong!
It's ok from Texas
This product is just ok. It goes on really nice but doesn't not stay. I have extremely oily eyelids and after a few hours this slides off and smugges. Not worth the money
Lmae from Sacramento
This eyeliner is fantastic. It's so smooth and leaves a nice even line. Doesn't smear or smudge.
Sammey09 from NJ
This eyeliner slides off really well and doesn't leave streaks on my eye lids. It also lasts for a long time without smudging so I don't have to reapply it throughout the day.
Estrada1 from Roma tx
I liked it and it was so smooth for applying but the only problem was that since i have huded eyes the liner smuges the upper eye but in all it was a great product
Haley from MO.
I used to be a longtime eyeliner wearer. I wouldn't leave the house without it in and that went on for years. The hassle of my old eyeliner just wasn't worth it for me so I quiet using it. I received this eyeliner and was actually really shocked by how nice it was. I am not a liquid eyeliner user because it's usually so messy and I can't make a straight line to save my life. This eyeliner completely got rid of that problem, it has great control! Not only that but the pigment is great, it doesn't seem to be drying out, it hasn't smudged at all, and it comes off SOOO easily either a makeup wipe. I 100% recommend this eyeliner to anyone looking!
Try from Az
Very bold ink..love the brush tip. I can easily apply whatever kind of wing I'm feeling and it only takes a few swipes with this liner. Stays all day until I'm ready to wipe everything off. Even cry proof.
Kemorine from New York
The MAC Brushstroke 24-Hour Liner is an excellent brush tip liner that allows for thin and thick lines. It helps make the perfect winged line. It's a true black color that is long wearing. It doesn't smudge during the day. Compared to other winged liners, this is better in terms of longevity and depth. For the price, it's worth it. I would recommend it to my friends.
Careberrie from South bend indiana
Love this eyeliner! Stayed on pretty much all day even after working out. Color was great and rich. I did have to reapply for afternoon/night time which isn't a big deal. Overall I loved this product.
