MAC Deliciously Rich Fluidline
MAC’s Indulge Collection (online now, in-stores (and other online retailers) on August 22nd for North America locations) features two new (and limited edition) Fluidlines. Both shades are very glittery/sparkly, so the consistencies isn’t as smooth as cream Fluidlines, and the application is uneven/splotchy. It’s hard to get a good, dense line of color. I found the best way was to load up the brush and then press and almost roll the brush against the lash line to get decent color. I’ve been wearing both for almost eight hours now, and there is significant flaking of color. I wore both on my lower lash line, and depending on your sensitivities, the glitter falling out/flaking off the lash line may cause your eyes to water. I thought they might work better as a base, but when I tried to apply the color as more of a base, it was just as uneven.
Deliciously Rich Fluidline ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “shimmering dirty taupe.” It’s a medium-dark brown with large gold sparkles. I applied this and the other shade with MAC’s 208 for swatches. Urban Decay Corrupt is less sparkly. MAC Lord It Up is similar but easier to apply and is more opaque. MAC Oprheus is a bit darker and less sparkly. See comparison swatches.
Gilt Gourmet Fluidline ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sparkling burnished gold.” It’s a brown-ish, medium-dark gold with a frosted, metallic finish and larger gold and copper sparkles. MAC Handforged is yellower, warmer. See comparison swatches.
