Mac Eye Kohl Teddy


Hello my dear beautiful friends,

I was one of those muted readers of wiseshe following it’s every ray of success and one of those., who read article titles and guess the authors (Well, was right most of the times…yeyyy..!!!). You are my friends even though we never met before and my shopping pals, I listen your every word. 🙂

And today, I’m thankful to Anamika and wiseshe team for letting me review for one of MAC‘s understated eye kohl TEDDY.

Mac describes TEDDY as intense bronze rich color, silky-smooth and pearl finish. Well, that’s a tad simple description for this versatile beauty – it’s actually a gorgeous dark brown with a hint of copper sheen and beautiful “shimmers“…unlike the jazzy striking kinds, these shimmers are elegant, classy and distinguishes this baby from other matte brown pencils in the market.

Price: 1100 /- INR.You may get it from flipkart here.

Availability: permanent collection, you can get at MAC stores across India

Quantity: the usual 1.36gm

My experience with Mac Eye Kohl Teddy:

It’s just few months I bought this and you can see how much I chowed it already. 😛 Infact it seemed to be a dying quest 😛 of TEDDY to appear on our famous wiseshe realm. So here it is.. 🙂

Texture: True to their words, it’s a silky smooth glide on pencil and layers evenly, despite to and fro strokes.

Pigmentation: Just one-two swipes and you get the shade.

Two swipes & single swipe | smudged to show abit of copper sheen and shimmers

My take: It’s is one of those shades I use day or night, on my lash or water lines – whenever I just want to give a soft definition to my eyes. When used solely, it gives a barely there, yet defined look. At times I even crayon it as a base on my eye and skip the shadows when I don’t have much makeup time. It never failed to give me the look I wanted.

Staying power: Well, this is where TEDDY sinks abit.

Without a proper base, it seem to transfer onto crease – though behaves much better, if set with abit of powder shadow.

It stays put for around 4-5hrs and faintly smudges thereafter. But unlike the ugly black/browns stains, it transforms into subtle copper sheen leaving those beautiful shimmers behind. Infact I have no complaints about this transformation too and absolutely love it. 🙂

What I like about Mac Eye Kohl Teddy:

  • The intense dark brown with a hint of copper sheen and shimmers
  • Being wearable day and night
  • Can be used solely or as a base
  • The super soft creamy finish which glides like magic on the lids
  • Lovely pigmentation. 1-2 swipes you get the shade
  • Transforms to subtle coppery shade even when it smudges
  • Suits most of Indian skin tones

What I don’t like about Mac Eye Kohl Teddy:

  • Staying power could have been better.
  • Without base coat, it seem to transfer onto crease.
  • Dusky beauties may not like the metallic/coppery hint

Rating: 4.8/5

Recommendation: Yes, yes, yes!!! I’m gonna stock this baby soon again and would definitely suggest you to try at MAC counters. Even if it fails to impress you right away, after few hours wait it may still steal a piece of your heart before it it did to me!! 🙂
