MAC Pearl Glide Liner Review and A Purple Look

These babies are pigmented and apply like buttah!

I have tried the Pearl Glide liners, and while I am not really a fan of glitter liners, I am loving the pearl glides because they really do glide and not tug on your lids. They are very creamy and application is a breeze. I love the funky colors like Bank Roll and Fly-By-Blu because the colors really pop on your lashline. These liners are very popular among MAC fans because of how they glide like butter on the lashline. The downside though is that you can NOT use these on your waterline or to tightline as this has glitters that can irritate or even scratch the surface of your corneas. Better be safe than sorry!

In the look below, I applied one of my Pearl Glides, and I used some of my shadows that have not been getting enough love from me lately. I unearthed my Quietly pigment (also part of this year's Little Darlings Cool Pigments set). The lavender shimmer is gorgeous. I also used my MAC Holiday 2007 Royal Assets Cool Eyes palette for this look, and I am loving the purples. I was bent on getting Shadowy Lady pro pan from MAC soon, when I realized I had it all along in this particular palette! Good thing I googled Shadowy Lady, and in one website it was mentioned that it was a part of the Royal Assets Cool Eyes. Duh- I didn't know I had it all along! I love the deep, dark, matte purple and it is amazing as a crease color.

I loved this post! Of course, I'm searching for the now discontinued PearlGlide line and found it! I read your colors that you used and saw Mabeline mascara. As a fellow make up lover, I have to tell you about Cargo TexasLash mascara. It's better than anything else out there. $20 at Sephora, maybe cheaper online.
