Pro Longwear’s long-lasting eye liner delivers creamy, dense colour that glides on smoothly. 12-hour waterproof formula stays put and smudge-free.
This review is for the five (5) limited-edition Pro Longwear Eye Liners releasing with MAC’s Apres Chic Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Black Ice: Rich black
- Rich Experience: True brown
- Mountain Air: Vibrant teal
- Night Trail: Deep navy blue
- Snow Shadow: Purple violet
These liners come in classic pencil form, so you’ll need to sharpen them as you use the product.
Black Ice is a nearly opaque, matte black.
Rich Experience is a nearly opaque, matte, coffee bean brown.
Mountain Air is a vibrant, nearly opaque teal.
Night Trail is an opaque, deep purple with very subtle purple shimmer.
Snow Shadow is a light purple shade. The pigmentation is the weakest of the five (5) liners, resulting in a translucent layer of color.
These pencils aren’t completely water-proof, but they are very smudge- and fade-resistant. I have no problems with the colors transferring through the day or becoming dull.
The only disappointing shade is Snow Shadow, which applies weakly.
Ease of Use: 9.25/10
The formula has some softness, but could be creamier. Luckily, you don’t need to apply too much pressure to get the colors to apply to the skin.
