MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy - Review, Photos & Swatches

Teddy can be described as a shimmery, intense dark bronze that pairs well with most neutral eye looks. It has teeny tiny golden shimmer and looks great along the upper and lower lash line. Teddy is one of those smudgy eye kohls that will work well with intense smokey eyes as well.
The lasting power is not more than 2-3 hours but when it fades, it does evenly without giving me raccoon eyes. It does not adhere very well to my waterline though. Another gripe with Teddy is that when I try to apply it on my waterline, it stings. Not every time, but sometimes which is very weird. I've tried few other eye liners from MAC and have never had this problem before. I'm guessing it's because of the shimmer. On the upper and lower lash line, it glides on like butter. So, I like to use it on the lash line and smudge it out.

More than the formula of the kohl, the deep, rich shimmery brown shade is what makes Teddy a universally flattering shade, whatever be your eye color. If you want a nice twist from your boring brown liner, Teddy is worth checking out.

Have you tried MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy? What are your thoughts? Do share!

  1. This one has been on my list for a long time now, but I always step back because I have at least 50 eyeliners and I only use Smolder on a regular basis. But I must check this out soon, it is lovely.

  2. I've never tried MAC eye pencils...I find that UD works for me, so I never try anything else! The color is pretty, though!

  3. @Shivani - This def. is not a must-have unless, you like the color. But I'm sure you'll like it if you decide to buy. I should stop buying eye liners too :(

  5. @Larie - I LOVE the UD liners...they never sting my eyes & stay on forever. I've always wanted to try Bourbon and thought this was close but, I guess Bourbon is slightly lighter :D

  10. I LOVE teddy. I find it very workable and compliments all eye colors. I'll pair it with Prunella often

  11. @Y - If you want a shade lighter with the same shimmer, you could try Bourbon from Urban Decay :)
