Not Quite Black, Not Quite Brown Eyeliner

MAC Local Wares Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty olive with multidimensional pearl.” It’s a muted dark brown with a gray tinge and subtle gold sparkle. The sparkle isn’t really noticeable once it is applied. It reminded me of CoverGirl Brown, without the shimmer. This collection seems to lean on the warmer side, but this eyeliner reads cooler on me–it actually looks almost gray when I tried it out.

Fluidline is a gel eyeliner that’s supposed to be long-wearing and smudge-proof. It comes inside a clear glass jar with a black screw-top lid. Local Wares has a creamy, pliable texture that glides on and goes on mostly opaque (I used MAC’s 263 brush to apply to my lower lash line), though I did need to go back to get a fully opaque line.  There was no skipping or dragging, because it has a delightfully creamy consistency.  It wore for eight hours without smudging, migrating, or fading when I tested it yesterday.

This collection also includes Dark Diversion, which I’ve reviewed previously, and Rich Ground, which I did buy as well since I can’t remember reviewing it before–though Rich Ground is part of the permanent range.
