MAC Blacktrack Pro Longwear Fluidline
Here are the other shades of MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) that I received and have finished testing. I really can’t tell if the formula is really different between the original Fluidlines and the Pro Longwear Fluidlines. At most, they seem a little more emollient/thinner with a longer drying time (but not long), but it’s such a subtle difference that it could just be that my original version is also older (and could therefore have dried out slightly over time).
Ivy is described as a “fresh leaf green.” It’s a muted, emerald green with a pearly sheen. It is more slippery and tends to sheer out when applied; it takes some layering, but you really have to wait for it to fully dry down before adding another layer of product. This shade wore well for ten hours. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Lowlights is described as a “deep deep brown.” It’s a deep, subtly cool-toned brown with a mostly matte finish (not as flat of a matte finish as Blacktrack). It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass when I tested it on my lower lash line, and it lasted for ten hours. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Macroviolet is described as a “sparkly purple.” It’s a lightly brightened eggplant purple with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and wasn’t too slippery. This shade stayed put for ten hours. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Siahi is described as a “deep ocean blue.” It’s a muted, blue with a hint of green and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single stroke that was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it tended to look faded, even when built up. The version here is more muted, less shimmery/more blue-leaning than my prior version. It lasted for ten hours–this formula just doesn’t budge on me.

Silverstroke is described as a “silver.” It’s a brightened silver with a metallic sheen. It had a more emollient consistency that resulted in sheer pigmentation. It was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage with two layers. Once in place and dry, it lasted for ten hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Please note, Royal Wink is a limited edition shade that’s part of the collaboration with Philip Treacy, but for the sake of minimizing posts during the MAC madness, I’ve included it here!
Royal Wink is described as a “bright ink blue.” It’s a bold, brightened cobalt blue with a satin finish. It had rich color payoff but had a slightly more emollient consistency so you have to be careful not to go back and forth, as it will sheer out if you do so–it goes on fairly evenly with more opaque coverage in one stroke. It wore well for ten hours on me. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
