COVER FX Perfect Pencil Ingredients:
Dimethicone, Synthetic Wax, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Sucrose Tetrastearate Triacetate, Silica, Polybutene, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Trimethylsiloxysilicate/Dimethiconol Crosspolymer, Trimethylpentanediol/Adipic Acid/Glycerin Crosspolymer, Silica Silylate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate. May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).
Product:
The COVER FX Perfect Pencil formula is matte gel based product that applies cream and sets to a smooth finish on the skin. This product is very opaque in one pass but because of the gel base, this formula can dry faster/set on the skin. You however still have enough time to blend these out if you work one section/stroke at a time. ;)

The MAC Technakohl Liner formula is wax based pencil, they are very creamy to apply and doesn't skip at all on the skin. I found this one easier to blend out because it behaves more like a cream when you first apply it.


Colour:
COVER FX Perfect Pencil:
N X-Light is a pale skin tone nude with neutral undertones.
P Light is a light skin tone nude with pink undertones.
N Light is a light skin tone nude with neutral undertones.
G Light is a light skin tone nude with golden undertones.

MAC Technakohl Liner Risque is a pale warm yellow based nude.

Wear:  Both I get over 16 hours wear without a powder to set them.

Packaging: Both are a twist up pencils but the Cover FX pencil can not be twisted back down. Product amount you are getting close to the same amount.

Verdict
I love the shade of the Technakohl Liner in Risque the most as it hit my skin tone perfectly for the wax-based formula.

But as I used them on their own, the gel based formula of the COVER FX Perfect Pencils last longer on the skin and there are a ton of shades option in the range from light, medium, and to deep skin tones and with different undertones there should be a shade for everyone.
