MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

This i tell you is an accidental purchase, i have tons of eyeliners to finish in pencil and pen-types. I was just browsing blogs and came across some reviews of this gel liner, after a few more reviews i was put in to trance and ordered this item right away.


The last thing i need is another black eyeliner, i am happily engaged with my Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner in Black. And If i should have purchase a new one, it should have been in brown since that was the color i was currently lacking.

But oh well. What's done is done. So here is another damage i made from my February Mini Haul.

Packaging is not much to talk about since it has the classic black minimalist design MAC always has for their permanent line. It has a bit of a weight, thus not making it feel cheap when you pick it up. Screw lid for the glass jar. I use pencil liner pen to apply it.


The consistency looks thick but it is actually like it's name, very fluid when applied. It is so easy to swipe a line with this liner that it makes me feel i can also easily make a mistake applying this. You need an eyeliner brush to apply this, or a pencil brush, or any liner brush you are confortable with. It glides in your skin seamlessly without any tugging, unlike my Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner that tends to tug on my lids when applied.


It is very opaque with just one swipe, so no need to apply a second coat on top. It's very very black. Just what you expect on a black eyeliner. You also need an insy-bit of product to cover one eye, so this i believe will last me a long time even if i use it everyday (which i plan to).
I also dries off to a matte finish. So it looks very natural. Really adds life to an almost monolid babe like me.


The Staying Power is very impressive, i've test run this liner for a few times before writing a review and approximately it stayed on for 12hours! That was the longest i tried wearing it, and i believe it can do longer, also take note that this is without smudging! Terrific eyeliner it is.

My VERDICT:
LOVE:
-Very opaque
-Small and travel-friendly
-Classic dustproof packaging
-No irritating fragrance
-Seamless & easy application
-Less goes a long way
-Price is justifiable
-Does not smudge
-Staying power is too good to be true!

HATE:
-Really nothing to hate about the gel liner itself, the only thing it lacks is its own brush!

REPURCHASE?
-YES! If ever i manage to empty this product. 

So if you are hunting for a good eyeliner, i definitely recommend. Looks like this accidental purchase turned out to be one of my greatest! :)

  1. I think MAC Blacktrack is almost a staple, though the Bobbi Brown one is just as good! I'm generally partial to liquid eyeliners, I find it easier to create thinner strokes and I don't need a separate brush, but I go through them a lot quicker than my MAC Blacktrack!

    1. I've been hearing a lot of great things about the Bobbi Brown Gel liner. Does the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner comes with it's own brush applicator? :)

    1. Does the MAC Fluidline smudge on you? :) I haven't experience any smudging from mine. I'll check the Inglot one out soon. Thanks! :)

  3. I love this. I might give it a shot as soon as I'm done with my Maybelline Gel Liner. Although, I might get the Stila one first. I fell in love with it after a few more uses and it's one the best eye liners I've tried. Thanks again for that one, btw. Hihi :*

    1. I love my Stila too! I'm just finishing up my mini sample size and i'll repurchase, might also throw in a brown one. :D But this MAC is great too! Easy to apply and is really black!

  4. I had fun reading this. I usually skip eyeliner entries because I have hooded eyes, but recently I've been exploring gel liners (because they're not shiny).

    Kaya pala ito called fluid. I threw away my maybelline, tuggy nga sya on me, and it dried up so fast even when I made sure to screw the cap really tight.

    1. I'm happy you enjoyed reading this! :) I love eyeliners because my eyes looks really boring and lifeless without them. I think i have the same Maybelline Gel Pot, is it the one that comes with a brush? It is really tuggy on me too. :(
