When I say this is the best waterproof liquid eyeliner on the market, I am not exaggerating! I’ve tried out a fair bunch of waterproof and smudge-proof eyeliners and let me tell you, the Mac Liquidlast Liner beats all of them.
If you want your eyeliner to last you all day, and not smudge, then this is the eyeliner that you need!

The Mac Liquidlast Liner comes in a small tube with a brush applicator. The brush applicator is very thin, which makes it easier for applying. That being said, the one downside of this eyeliner is applying it.
If you don’t have a lot of practice with liquid liners, it can get a bit tricky and it does take some getting used to.
You also need a very steady hand to get it right. However, practice makes perfect and after practising a couple of times, anyone can get the hang of it. Simply start from the inner corner of your eye and follow your eye around.
A trick that I was taught when I was just starting out with eyeliner is to make a dot to dot. Draw dots on your eyelid and then all you need to do is connect them.
This trick worked amazingly for me and really helped me stay in line:) After a while, it kind of becomes second nature and you’ll find you no longer need to do dot-to-dot.
Why MAC Liquidlast Liner is a cut above all others
The main reason why I love this eyeliner is that it simply does not budge once applied. Once it’s applied and dried, it lasts until you use makeup remover!
I decided to test it out to see how long it can last and the results were astonishing. I applied the eyeliner at about 3 pm and kept it on until about 5 pm the next day. Probably not great for my eyes, but never mind, look what I do for the blog!
From 3 pm until I went to sleep the eyeliner stayed on perfectly, but what’s amazing is that the next morning my eyes still looked flawless. And no, I don’t only sleep on my back!
By midday, there were one or 2 places that I could have done with some touching up, but it still looked totally fine. When 5 pm came and I had been wearing the eyeliner for 26 hours, I decided it was enough time to see that this eyeliner really lasts.
This eyeliner is the real deal! At 5 pm my eyes still looked more or less intact minus a few places where on a regular occasion, I probably would have touched up. However, my eyes still looked fine, so fine in fact that I would have walked out of the house like that.
Another thing I love about this eyeliner is that it never transfers to my eyelids. I have pretty oily eyelids and most eyeliners slowly, throughout the day make their mark on my eyelid. I hate this and I’m always self-conscious about it.
With the Mac Liquidlast Liner, this never happens! (Another trick is to use an eyeshadow primer). It’s waterproof, smudge-proof, transfer-proof and lasts over 24 hours!
Eyeliner Application Tips
It’s not called waterproof for no reason, try washing the eyeliner off with water, and nothing will happen and it will not budge. Also when you apply the eyeliner be careful because if any of it goes on your hands or you make a mistake on your eye, once it’s dried, it’s dried! I am always cleaning my hands with my makeup remover🙂
Another tip when using this eyeliner is that because it’s a liquid liner it creates a very sharp black finish. Many people love this look but personally, I prefer a softer finish.
To fix this I simply take my angled brush with my black powder and go over the edges to make it a bit softer. You can also use a pencil to get the same effect. It only takes about half a minute so it’s totally worth it and it looks fab!
I hope you have enjoyed this post on why the Mac Liquidlast Liner is the best waterproof liquid eyeliner and I hope after reading this you agree;) It really is a cut above all others!
