Product Review: MAC Penultimate Eye Liner Rapid Black

DSC_0598 copy by you.
With the up coming MAC Style Black Collection, I feel it my duty to inform you guys of my opinion about the MAC Penultimate Liner in Rapid Black. And finally, after months of having this, I will now do a review. :)

I have to tell you that I L-O-V-E Love it! :)

That should end my post, right? Not really. I should justify why I love it and worth the extra few bucks that you may have to pay for should you decide to get one.

1. It's MAC! I know there are more products that is a miss in MAC's history. But nevertheless, MAC has been known to give great products. That alone could entice a makedup addict like me to purchase it.
2. No other tool needed. No need for brushes or clean up.
3. Easy to travel with. Since it is just like any normal pen, it can fit in your purchase or pencil case even.
4. No sharpening required. In gigs, I find the using the Penultimate cuts the time in half.
5. Pointy tip gives precise application. I can't be more descriptive enough when i say the tip goes where you want it go.
6. Tip won't tug the eyes. the tip won't hurt as your line your eyes even if you press it further. I have shaky hands so i get to blance my hand and tip that causes me to press it harder on to my lids and it doesn't hurt even a bit.
7. Last a long time, I've been using this product quite often and I still don't see any sign of it emptying.
8. The tip of the pen doesn't change shape or bend. Its still the same after a few months of using it.
Only "con" i find in this product is the price. I got this during the Chill Collection at P1,200.00. A lot more expensive compared to its US price (w/o tax) and it will be much more expensive when it comes back with the Style Black collection because of MAC Philippines' price increase. Boohoo...

Here are more pictures:

gives great control for lining... even with shaky hands, like me!

There are many felt tip liners out there but this one tops my list by far. :)
What's your favorite felt-tip liner?

much love,
Shen

Longchamp as a brand began back in 1948, but had nothing to do with handbags.
Founder Jean Cassegrain took over his father’s Tobacco shop with a dilemma at
hand. Their renowned smoking pipes were falling out of fashion and needed a
redesign to stay fresh. What Cassegrain came up with revolutionised the shop
forever, coating their pipes longchamp bags
in leather to give them a more sophisticated look.
It was an instant hit, thrusting the shop into the limelight throughout Paris
and marking Cassegrain’s entry into the luxury goods trade. More products soon
followed, allowing Paris’ fashion elite to create their own leather-bound
accessories.
Cassegrain wanted to use his own name, which is often associated with an
image of a grain Mill due to being translated to ‘crush grain’, but another
family member had already utilised the name commercially. One of Paris’ last
grain mills was located longchamp bags
near the Longchamp racetrack, justifying it as
Cassegrain’s choice. The brand’s seal features an image of a horse taking
flight.
Longchamp handbags came to fruition in the 1970’s with the LM bag. It was
designed by Jean Cassegrain’s son Philippe, who now runs the company. The LM
handbag range was extremely popular throughout Asia, acting as a catalyst for
the brand’s rise in fame. Original designs of the Longchamp LM featured the
jumping horse and belt longchamp tote
criss-cross logo. After being discontinued in the 1980’s,
the line has been relaunched for Longchamp’s 60th year
anniversary.
