MAC Fluidline in Black Track. 

I was very skeptical of this...mostly because I've always used pencil liners, and it's not cheap, so if I don't like it, it's $15 down the drain.

First, some basic info:


Weight: 3g/0.1 oz
Price: $15
Color: Black

Description: Ultra-smooth, Fluidline's gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes.

Okay, so I purchased this a few weeks ago, and I've been using it quite a bit. I actually really like it. It goes on smoother than my pencil liner, stays longer, and doesn't smudge after it dries.

It does take a little longer than I'm used to to dry completely, but it's fine. I use an angled eyeliner brush to apply this. The one I have is actually an Eco-Tools brush, and it works great.

I find this eyeliner has stayed in place all day even when it's been 103 degrees outside everyday. It lasted through the swimming pool without smudging or giving me "raccoon" eyes.

I've only used one other gel liner, and it was the Maybelline Eye Studio liner, and I wasn't a fan of that, but it's all I have to compare to. MAC Fluidline is 1000x better. 

Pigmentation: 5/5
This eyeliner is super black with one coat. MAC fluidline is completely opaque in one swipe.

Staying Power: 5/5
Lasted through 100 degree weather, humidity, and a swimming pool. I've also worn it while I tanned to see if that would melt it, but it didn't budge. After it dries, I can touch it and it doesn't transfer or flake. 

Ease of use: 5/5
This eyeliner is super soft and smooth. It doesn't clump up, and I don't have to tug on my eyelids to get a straight line.

Price: 4/5 
$15 still seems a bit steep to me for a very small jar of eyeliner. Nevertheless, I'll repurchase it when mine runs out. I may even purchase it in another color soon, because I love it that much.


Overall: 5/5
It's honestly the best eyeliner I've ever used. Easy to apply, stays on all day, seems to be water resistant, but still comes off easily with makeup remover, highly pigmented and very smooth.



So, I definitely recommend this eyeliner if you're looking for a gel liner. I haven't touched my pencil liner in weeks, and I don't miss it. 

If you've tried this, let me know what you think of it. Have you had such a good experience? 

Thanks for reading!
