Sometimes, there’s no need for a new version. Otherwise put, no point in reinventing the wheel. So why MAC felt the need to reinvent the liquid liner, with an ACTUAL wheel, I don’t know.
MAC, with their new Rollerwheel Liquid Liner, has created a ‘groundbreaking spinning disk applicator’ – which looks like a tiny tiny pizza cutter (without the sharpness, obviously!), which is supposed to make it easier to apply this tricky product.
This launched late July, and it’s sold-out online, so what do I know, but, I really didn’t get it. I watched a few online tutorials from beauty vloggers who also didn’t get it.
I don’t like to give products a bad review, but either a) I am very bad at using this, or b) it’s not very good.
Firstly the formula dries really quickly,and crumbles off so easily, and I don’t like that in a liner. Applying it in a thin line near the lashline is not that easy when it has to deal with the curves of your own eyes. Creating a wing is also tricky, because you need to control the roller properly, and I foind that so hard!
Maybe it is just mee. Have you tried this, and found it easy to use? It comes in three shades – On a Roll Black matte black, Rollerwheel Brown warm brown, Roller Royale royal blue. I tried the brown, and I do love a brown liner for a change, but this was just not cutting it for me. It’s Limited Edition, sold-out online, and it will be interesting to see if it comes back in at all in the future.
