As you can see from the picture above, the Rimmel has a slightly peachy pinker tone to it. Now this may not sound or look like a massive difference swatched on the back of my hand, but I do notice it in my waterline. The Mac pencil definitely gives my eyes a bit more of that wide awake look, but I am light to medium skinned, and I can honestly not see this being as big a difference on someone with tan to dark skin, where both are going to give that pop.
As for quality of pencil and wearability, I find them interchangeable. They are both buttery smooth pencils that last a similar length in my waterline.
So the verdict? I reach for the Mac first because the colour really does make a difference being that slightly bit brighter on me. I keep the Rimmel in my handbag for the sometimes needed mid afternoon pick me up.
Would I buy both again? No, I would spend the extra money and go for the Mac.
What are your thoughts on nude liners? Have you tried them, and if so which one do you like best?
