MAC Raven Kohl Power Eye Pencil

MAC Cosmetics has released their Holiday 2012 collections and they are repromoting some of their Kohl Power Eye Pencils.  The one I have to show you today is Raven.

Raven is a blackened burgundy with a pearl-like finish.

Because it is a Kohl Power Eye Pencil it is great for smudging but I would refrain from using it in the waterline and for tightlining purposes due to the red hue.  A lot of cosmetics that are red include carmine which is an irritant to many.  I also find that because of the specks of pearl in this liner it is slightly uncomfortable on the waterline or tightline.  This is something I would strictly use on the top lash line.
The swatch below is a pretty heavy one.  You can really see the burgundy and the pearly sparkle.  When a thin line is used on your lash line the color appears as if it were a soft black.

I really enjoy the MAC Raven Kohl Power pencil.  I have used it for a few years now and I love it for the fall months.  It retails for $16.50 and can be purchased at Nordstrom or anywhere MAC Cosmetics are sold.
What is your favorite eye liner during the fall?  Is it a simple black or do you like to throw in a twist?  Do you wear it smudgy or do you like a nice crisp wing??  Let me know in the comments below!
