Review: MAC Spiked Eye Brows and Superslick Liquid Lids

MAC Spiked Eye Brows and Superslick Liquid Eye Liner

MAC does have quite the names right? Spiked Eye Brows and Superslick Liner?
I got those two little products at the Airport when I went to Austria some time ago. I really needed an eyebrow pencil at that time as my trusty Tom Ford one ran out after a year.
So I went for Spiked as the make-up artist was wearing it and recommended it and it looked like the right colour for me.

And it was.

There is nothing else really to say about Spiked except it was a lot smaller that I expected when unpacking it. Its a good brow pencil and will last you all day. Nevertheless as a gadget I really do miss the Tom ford one I had previously as it not only had an amazing elongated square shape which really draws in realistic fake hairs, but it also had an inbuilt sharpener and a brush which I used regularly. Both pencils are twist up if I have not mentioned that yet.
I bought the MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner on the same day reason being that I still have not found the perfect black eyeliner. There is always something wrong with them, either the application does not work as I want or the colour pay-off is crap, or they wont last on my lids.

The Superslick Liquid Eyeliner is good but not the perfect one for me.

It has a flexible sponge tip applicator which has a very fine point. I like that. It does last all day and doesn't budge. I like that too. But it is one of those eyeliner where the line that you created on your lid will be erased by going over a second time. Do you know what I mean? So it does take a bit of patience applying it cause I NEVER can do a nice flick with just one swipe.
Additionally I am not quite sure about the finish. It's very glossy. Some people might love that, but I would prefer if it was matte.
