black eye, rather than a smoky eye...), then MAC's Greasepaint Stick might be the solution for you. The creamy pencil can be used as an eyeliner or blended out for a smoky eye effect (without the flaky mess!). The product is budgeproof and long-lasting too, meaning our smoky eye also won't transform into dark undereye circles later in the day :)
In terms of blending ease, I find Greasepaint Stick waaay easier to blend than my other beloved MAC's Paint Pots. I still love Paint Pots, but the Greasepaint Stick is definitely more of a universally user-friendly product for everyone from make-up novice to make-up expert!
I like applying the Greasepaint Stick and then blending atop with a matching eyeshadow colour. Lancome's Trendy, a cool-toned purple eyeshadow, works beautifully with Greasepaint Stick in V and really any black eyeshadow works well with the Black Greasepaint (just be careful of those wandering flakes of eyeshadow!)
The one downfall of Greasepaint Stick? It's limited edition so scoop it up, before it's gone!
