MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection has drawn me crazy mostly because of the packaging. I went to MAC to pick my Blush – “Seduced at Sea” from the same collection. And the gorgeous MUA did simple eyemakeup on me using just 2 products from same collection- Eyepencil “Black Swan” and Eyeshadow “Legendery Lure”. I was so impressed that I brought the eyepencil because I can use it for daily basis – MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Pearl glide Intense Eyeliner- BLACK SWAN.
What MAC Claims:
An eye pencil that provides rich, luxurious colour with a touch of shimmer and sparkle. Smooth, creamy formula glides on for a perfectly intense line, yet its soft texture allows you to blend. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Limited-edition teal Alluring Aquatic packaging.
1350 INR ( Kill us MAC !! )

MAC defines “Pearl glide Intense Eyeliner- BLACK SWAN” as Black With Pearls. There are 2 different shades in this collection. One is this and the other one is “Black Line” which is defines as “Black with gold pearl”. This one is more wearable for daily basis and it has silver pearls in it. It’s an eye liner in pencil form so basically this is not for waterline. Although it can be applied on lash line. I had a bad experience with pearl eye pencil (from other brand) which I applied on my waterline and the pearls keep irritate my eyes and made them watery.
I had to give 2nd -3rd-4th thoughts before buying this..The price is upsetting, know it’s from collection but after seeing the texture and longevity I am sold. This is my first eyeliner from MAC plus the packaging itself is so beautiful; anyone can get attracted towards it. I liked their extra dimensions eyeshadows (highly recommend to those who love eyeshadows), shades are awesome but unfortunately I don’t use it :/ Anyways. Let’s talk about the packaging first. As you can see the eyeliner pencil has no water droplets on it, therefore it has simple aqua blue metallic body. Whereas the packaging case is similar as others. It has same aquatic blue metallic glossy finish with water droplets which you can feel. Super gorgeous!!
The Texture is super smooth and creamy; this is what I recognize first when one of the MUA applied on my eyelid. The 2nd thing I noticed was the pearls which was adding extra spark. I don’t have anything like this. “Pearl glide Intense Eyeliners” are ridiculously smooth and long wearing. One of the best liners I have tried so far. I find little difficulties during application as the tip tends to break with little pressure. Therefore make sure you apply with light hand. It is perfect for that smokey eye- easy peasy, apply and smudge. Once it set it isn’t going to smudge and stay as it is throughout the day. I need my TBS cleansing butter to remove it.. Hence, it lives up to its claims as “Long-wearing & Smudge-proof”.
The Black Pearl looks green on me in artificial lightings but in day light it is what it is, very strange but it’s true. It can be used as your eye shadow base or can be used as liner. I like to smudge it! I think both of the eyeliner are from permanent line.Those who don’t know MAC has relaunched Pearl glide Intense Eyeliner- BLACK SWAN in this collection but with aquatic collection packaging making it more attractive.
