Review Overview

Fluidline is gel-cream eyeliner with remarkably easy application and tenacious wear that can stand up to oily eyelids without fading, smearing, or running. The slightly moist application sets to a long-wearing matte finish. Classic browns and black are available, as well as trendier eye-catching colors. Rich Ground, Dipdown, and Blacktrack are the most versatile choices.

M.A.C. Cosmetics At-A-Glance

What more can one say for this long-standing makeup line whose products have spoken eloquently for themselves for years? In many ways, M.A.C. Cosmetics is a pivotal line not only for makeup artists but also for any in-the-know cosmetics consumer. Although M.A.C. has several singularly outstanding products, they generally excel by virtue of the range of choices offered. The color selection for everything from lipsticks to foundations is exceptional. Most of the makeup brushes are beautiful, full, and soft, as well as properly sized to fit the contours of the face and eyes.

When it comes to skincare you may be tempted to dismiss the small assortment M.A.C. offers and skip right to their makeup with its well-earned positive reputation. But doing so would mean missing a handful of beautifully formulated products that are worth trying. By no means is M.A.C.'s skin-care line one-stop shopping (at least not if you have blemishes, skin discolorations, or require more than a couple options per category), but you'll find more than just the color products impressive here, and the prices aren't unreasonable either!

M.A.C.'s salespeople are often trained makeup artists, too. This is especially true in the freestanding M.A.C. boutiques, where the staff tends to be true makeup artists.

Note: M.A.C. sets itself apart from other beauty brands by staying ahead of the curve by launching a seemingly-constant rotation of impressive limited edition products, usually with fashion-forward themes. Though it's impossible to review every limited edition product, many of M.A.C.'s are as impressive as those in their permanent collection.

Strengths: Some impressive moisturizers; praiseworthy foundations in a mostly gorgeous range of shades; good concealers; several great powder-based products including blush, bronzer, and eyeshadow in various finishes; dizzying array of lipstick shades in mostly sumptuous formulas; several very good mascaras (regular and waterproof); top-notch makeup brushes; many of the Prep + Prime products work as claimed.

Weaknesses:A few products with high levels of potential skin irritants.

Dry out so fast in its container!

Just want to say that this product dried out so easily and quickly in its container that it, in my opinion, makes it not a good value for money. I think there is much better options out there. Next time, I will try the Inglot one.

There is better

This product is good but not the best. I would argue that Inglot amc gel liner is best. The color comes on more matte than fluidline, and dries fast. I have never had as smudge issue.

Best Eyeliner...for me

Trust me when I say this but I've used almost every possible liner out there...high end ones, low end ones, with and without eye primer...I've tried them all and none of them can withstand my oily eyelids. Fluidline is the only one that will not make me look like a raccoon by 10:30AM! Stays put until I remove it at the end of the day.

Can Smudge!

This formula smudged big time for me! i was shocked because I have used Cliniques version for several years, with minimal smudging. The first day i tried this eye liner i had used lubricating eye drops about an hour before. two hours later i looked in the mirror and almost flipped! the eyeliner was down under my eyes like a raccoon. So I cleaned it off completely. The next day i tried again, although the smudging was much less ,it was still smudging. I'm going back to Clinique, and ret this.
