        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!!!

        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 :(

        Awesome

        By 

        from Denver, CO, USA

        Comments about MAC Brushstroke Liner:

        This stuff is pretty awesome. It's easy to apply, and you can control how thin or thick you want the liner to be. It's not a felt tip, so you always have plenty of product in the tip, so wherever you put the tip, the liquid liner will apply nicely. It dries quick, and stays put all day. Color never fades. The only drawback I have found with this is sometimes when you put the lid back on it grabs the hairs and pulls them backwards without you knowing, and the next time you go to use it there are stray hairs hanging out the side permanently. When this happens I've just trimmed them, which hasn't really impacted the usability or precision or application of the tip yet.

        Comments about MAC Brushstroke Liner:

        beautiful liner, super precise and the black is perfect but it frays super easily which then makes it almost impossible to use.

        Great on the go Liner

        By 

        from Tuxedo Park, NY 10987, USA

        Comments about MAC Brushstroke Liner:

        Was very happy with this purchase, I just wish it had the same staying power as the Liquid Liner. I am Asian,

        so the ways my eyes are shaped (no double lid), within hours of application, most liners if not completely waterproof start to run and bleed. This liner was decent, but doesn't work all day like the liquid liner, however that is harder to apply and get a true wing.

        not for me

        By 

        from Los Angeles, CA, USA

        Comments about MAC Brushstroke Liner:

        let me start by saying that i am no spring chicken, but i know how to put on eyeliner. for me, this liner immediately, and i mean instantly before i am even at the end of my lid, flows into every teeny tiny microscopic, previously totally invisible line on my lid and travels like a raging river up every one of them. instantly horrible. had to remove it. thought it might be a fluke, so i tried it again on another day. same thing. for me, this liner is completely unwearable, and i have not had this problem with other MAC liners in pen form. it could be just me, but unless you are quite young and completely lineless, i'd give this one a pass and try another MAC liner.

        Unhappy with this replacement for the Penultimate eyeliner ;

        By 

        from Brooklyn, NY, USA

        Comments about MAC Brushstroke Liner:

        I used the Penultimate liner for years and loved how fluid it was and easy to apply a nice cat-eye. For some reason they got rid of that one and this is the replacement. This one is nothing like it and so wet (making it hard to apply) - very difficult to make a clean line. I really hope they bring the old one back!!!

        Applies with ease

        from Georgia

        Comments about MAC Brushstroke Liner:

        I've never used a liquid liner that was so easy to apply, and with precision on top of that.

        The brushes will give you a tight line that you can really build on as much as you'd like.
