Farmgirl Beauty Secret #51: MAC LiquidLast Liner is COMPLETELY waterproof.

Despite its fame and highly-touted color selection, MAC has never really impressed me much. Like my skincare, I prefer makeup made of simple, good ingredients and MAC is often the opposite of that. With that said, something compelled me to dissect the ingredient list for MAC LiquidLast Liner and my strong suspicion of it being waterproof proved to be true. Liquidlast is COMPLETELY waterproof AND smudge-proof (don't you just hate the smudges you get w/ "waterproof" eye makeup? they don't budge once they manage to smudge- just horrid!). If you are an eye-lining kind of girl, this is an absolute summer must-have. YES, it will absolutely survive a swim or two. YES, it can double as a liquid eye shadow that's YES, waterproof. Bonus: it is also paraben-free.

The formula is slightly goopy out of the container and the brush leaves much to be desired. However, practice makes perfect with this product. As usual with MAC, LiquidLast Liners come in a great color selection; you’re sure to find a color or 2 that you like. The color Inky is a gorgeous deep blue and it acts as an eye brightener. Point Black is a great basic.

Removal for this eye liner is easier than one would expect. Use a q-tip soaked with cleansing Oil (my favorite is Bioelements Sensitive Skin Cleanser). Implement the “twirling motion”described in Farmgirl Beauty Secret #10 to gently remove eye liner. With that said, I recommend saving this eye liner for the beach and pool-side. LiquidLast Liner is quite tenacious and I prefer to not use this on a daily basis.

Hi there,

Isn't it great? The 2 I have is getting a bit goopy, I need to replace them.

I agree on that, it was so difficult to take off! Which is great for some, but annoying for others. I don't mind much, especially when all those pretty colours are involved!

Hi Marce,

pretty indeed! I would love it if they made an eyeshadow version of this.

I'm pretty much sold! First I have to learn how to use liquid liner :)

Hi shella,

Liquid liners are great! Tip: start lining from the middle to the outer edges(right above your pupil), then line from liner corner to the middle. You can also line in dashes and then do "connect the dot" with the dashes- liquid eyelining made easy!

This sounds fantastic! I'm definitely going to invest in one of these, and coincidentally, the current liquid eyeliner I am using has run out ;)!
