MACQUEEN Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner Review

Makeup isn’t something I’m very passionate about. Sure, it’s nice, but I tend to focus more on skincare. However, I occasionally enjoy exploring new brands and products. I have the oh-so-typical hooded eyes, and a lot of eyeliners imprint on the top lid. Avoiding that is my main eyeliner requirement.

I typically stick to a simple black (such as this Nicopy one), yet I thought experimenting with a color could be fun too. I chose Macqueen Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner in the color 07 Aura Heroine. It’s sold on YesStyle, Stylevana, Beautynetkorea, and eBay.

Here are some marketing claims that made me buy this product:

  • A sharp line in a single stroke

  • Smooth and even application

  • Waterproof to stay all day

  • No smudging

  • Won’t rub off

  • Can be used as eye shadow

How to use:

The same way you’d use any eyeliner. Apply in any way you choose. I have used it on my top and bottom lids as eyeliner.

My impressions

I wanted to love Macqueen Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner so much, but I just don’t. It transfers to my upper lid horribly, even if I set it with translucent powder. It’s not a good look. I haven’t tried using it as eye shadow, but maybe I’ll attempt that, just to use it up. Blending out a thin line into shadow doesn't seem like the most efficient use of my time. I have tried lining my lower lids with this pencil, which worked fine, but typically I leave my lower lids alone.

I also can’t say that it’s a sharp line with a single stroke. In fact, it’s not sharp with any amount of strokes. It’s a pretty soft pencil and it goes on accordingly - in a soft, smudgy line. That’s a look too, it’s just not what I was going for. I usually do cat eye, and was hoping to bring some variety to my usual look with a new, fun color. To be fair, the color is beautiful - no complaints there.

My only consolation is that it wasn’t expensive, so it’s not a big loss. If you know of an awesome colored eyeliner that won’t transfer to the upper lid, please let me know! If you like a soft, smudgy line, then give it a try.

Tina, isn’t it funny? My mom had some cheap Kiki lipstick and that seemed to stay well too.

I love the color because black is just too harsh on me now, but there was a time in my life I didn't leave my house without black eyeliner on my lower water line How did it stay on all day is my question because now to save my life I can't find one that doesn't's ridiculous 'cause back in the day JrHS/HS 20s 30s....I was not buying specially formulated or boutique makeup I'm pretty sure it was Walmart, Kmart, Louis & Clark pharmacy (local neighborhood pharmacy) and it stayed! Like black badges of honor 😂
