MAC Chromagraphic Pencil Rich Purple Review And Swatches


 MAC Chromagraphic Pencil

When one is obsessed with a particular colour it is often difficult to justify your purchase. This is what I felt when I got MAC Chromagraphic pencil in rich purple for myself  after I’d bought two fluidlines in the similar shade πŸ˜€ The thing is that no shades look the same – they are different in texture, consistency and shimmer and what not. Am I justifying myself again. Oh ya! I think I am .

Let me just move on with the review of MAC Chromagraphic pencil in rich purple.

Rich Purple is from the fall collection and which has been recently introduced .

  • Price – INR 900 for 1.36 gm

What MAC Claims:-

A creamy, soft-point pencil ideal for use as a liner, or to outline and define designs. Provides a bold, intensely smooth application with a well-defined, pigment-rich line.

  • Packaging – It’s a sleek black pencil,  needs to be sharpened and has a shade colour at its base which makes it easy for anyone to pick the desired one if having many of them .
  • Texture – Very very smooth and glides beautifully on waterline without stinging or anything.I have major problem with my waterline when it comes to application of eyeliner as  most eyeliner shades are not visible but this one comes out really dark .

I jut sharpened it to show you that the lead of the pencil is strong enough to hold itself in spite of being extremely creamy.

Swatches – It a matte dark purple shade which gives an even application and has slight red undertones.


This is how it looks on my eyes and don’t forget to notice my waterline. I have not comes across any eyeliner which looks so dark on my waterline πŸ™‚
