MAC Eye Kohl 'Minted' swatch & review

Hello lovely people,

I am at my mum's place and greatly surprised that I have managed to blog while my mum looks on. She's so curious about this whole thing and wants me to explain what to her what I am doing. How cute is that ? So tonight I have a tech date  with mommy dearest :p

Let's keep up with the emerald green saga and play up our eyes a bit with a beautiful green eye pencil from MAC which can be used on the water line as well.

 MAC Minted is a part of the eye kohl family and is a permanent shade. Acc. to MAC, their eye kohl is a soft-on pencil liner that lines, defines and shades the eyes with rich color & a silky-smooth, matte/pearl finish. Ophthalmologist tested.




Minted is described as vibrant mint green with pearl. To me, it looks a beautiful emerald green with super fine golden shimmer.


Minted is creamy and doesn't pull or tug at the skin while applying. While its not sheer, you get better intensity with two swipes. Minted is smudge-able and can be used as a base for more intense eye looks. Though it does come down on my under eyes when used on the waterline after abt 3 hrs but does not totally disappear from the waterline. On the upper lash line, it lasts for arnd 6 hrs.




MAC says it's safe to use on the waterline but it does make my eyes burn occasionally (not always). But I still love it nevertheless :p







MAC eye kohls are wooden pencils with matte black coating and black cover. They have colored ends which shows the color of the pencil. This makes it easier to locate them in your stash.

Price:  RS.1000 /0.48 gm

  4. The colour is so lovely! I agree with Sam, it's a little light for me but I think would be great as you say...as a base to add an extra dimension of colour to an eyeshadow. I still love the Colorbar one that that you gave me x
