For this Holiday season MAC came out with it's Tartan collection. I really liked the look, and decided to investigate. Nothing was really calling my name until I swatched their Black Line pencil across the back of my hand. My mind just screamed out OMG! I have to have it! (yes my mind capitalizes and abbreviates :)) The smoothness and creaminess of this pencil along with the intensity of the color had me sold on it in a nanosecond.
Sadly they were all out. But now I was a woman obsessed and on a mission, I just had to have it. From MAC store in Yorkdale we went to a MAC counter at The Bay (Yorkdale), no luck. I was done shopping for other stuff, Jay and I jumped on the subway and headed to Eaton's Center. At the MAC store at Eaton's I got the Black Line, and at the MAC counter in The Bay (Eaton), I acquired Undercurrent and Petrol Blue (they were the last two). I was also seriously tempted by Black Swan but decided to exert a bit of control. At $17.50 CAD per pencil I reached my makeup allowance that day.
So as you can see from my picture:
Black Line is a gorgeous black with gold pearl shimmer.
Petrol Blue is a dark navy with blue pearl shimmer.
I've worn them all... I love them all, they're lovely long wearing, non smudging definitely intense (so to each its own) pencils
Black Swan is a black pencil with a kind of silver pearl shimmer to it... so pretty, I still sometimes think about it, but haven't given in.
