You know that feeling of going back to an old love, then finding out (with the utmost delight) that it's even better than you remember it? That's what I felt when I dipped into the MAC Fluidline in Dipdown (P1,100). The Fluidline was my first ever high-end eyeliner and I loved it so much that I used it for almost two years. I kept it for three years just for the nostalgia, and believe it or not, it was still creamy and usable until the day I threw it away.
I received a fluidline in a MAC event that I attended a couple of months ago. I didn't want to use it since I have got quite a few brown eyeliners on rotation already, but I was curious to see if this gel eyeliner is as good as I thought it was. It is!
This is the best gel eyeliner I've tried, hands down. If you thought your drugstore gel eyeliner was creamy, the Fluidline is waaaaay creamier than you'd think possible. This stuff just glides on the lids effortlessly! It's a lot like liquid eyeliner except that it's solid and housed in a pot. Oh, and this will almost never dry up if you store it properly and keep the cap on tight. In my experience, anyway.
I wasn't kidding when I said that this can stay creamy and usable up to three years (it does get drier as time goes by of course). I wouldn't recommend using it beyond 1.5 - 2 years though, just for hygienic reasons.
The Fluidline is long-wearing and non-smudging, so it's something you can just put on your lids and waterline then forget about. It's also water-resistant which means that you can cry a river and it will still be there. Nonetheless, this eyeliner is easy to take off with a normal makeup remover.
Dipdown is a rich deep brown shade that offers just enough definition to the eyes for a natural, "it's not makeup!" look. You only need a bit of product to get an opaque line so one jar will last you until it expires! I know it's not cheap but you will definitely get more than what you pay for.
So yes, great stuff! If you're into gel eyeliners, then this is THE product to have. If you don't like bothering with extra brushes though you're better off with pencil or liquid eyeliners. :)
What do you think - worth the splurge or are you happy with cheaper alternatives?
