MAC Beth Mask Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liners Review

I always wanted to try MAC smoke liners especially after loving Revlon smoke crayon black and bronze but disaster struck when I got  it. Initially I thought I was not getting the application technique right but after number of failed attempts I am beginning to think the fault lies with MAC.

About MAC  & Beth Ditto Shade & Smoke Liners:-


MAC & Beth Ditto launched a brand new product type in their latest range.  It is the Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liner.  There are a total of 4 shades in this product range and below are listed the remaining 3:

  • Beth or Glory (deep brown liner / bright blue shadow)

  • Drag, Strip (smoky navy liner / pale blue shadow)

  • Little Miss Moffet (true black liner / true white shadow)

So what is this Shade and Smoke Liner?  It is a dual-sided pencil that has rounded tip on one end which is supposed to be the shadow and a slanted tip on the other end which is supposed to be a liner.

The tapered end is the ‘liner’ and is to be used for detailing and defining.  The slant tip makes it easy to apply to the eye lid or inner corner of the eye.  The rounded side is great for smudging and ‘smoking’ out the eye. You can blend with your finger or a brush but work quickly because this long wearing, water resistant formula dries fast!

The liner is a burgundy red and the shadow is a soft orange with a subtle golden sheen


Now what exactly is the problem with MAC Beth Mask Shade & Smoke Liner?

The product contains hardly any moisture thus making it very dry and giving the eye lids a heavy feel.  The burgundy red shade is pretty but it’s really hard to blend.  Moreover it doesn’t show up on my waterline. Although MAC suggests not to use it on the waterline, I couldn’t resist trying it as an eyeliner. 
Plus the soft orange shade doesn’t show up at all. I have used soft orange for the inner corner of my eyes and if you look carefully in the picture below, one can hardly see it because of its poor pigmentation.

 Product sent by company for consideration but it has not affected my review:-


  1. I was looking forward to these as a birthday gift to myself, but then I went like – nyah… somehow MAC Shadesticks never appealed to me, I felt they were too drying, and this one is too drying yet again. But I would love to get one like this.
