My dear MAC Fluidline Blacktrack, You Were Wonderful While It Lasted. Too Dry, Goodbye.

Google ‘best gel liner’ and you’re bound to see a slew of reviews, articles, videos on the MAC Fluidline Blacktrack. Often compared to the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner, these two brands serve the I-need-smudge-proof-eyeliner market like dental braces to crooked teeth.

HAHA. I don’t know why said that. I’m glad my braces days are over though.

Let’s go back a little in time, to when my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack was fresh, creamy, soft and nothing less than awesome.


Due to my extremely oily skin and eyelids, I’ve always had trouble getting liquid and pencil eyeliners stay on my lashline. The closest bet I had to a non-smudge eyeliner was the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner. It stayed on my lids no doubt, but it also transferred onto the skin above the fold. Throughout the day I had to check if there was any transfer and remove it. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero works for many people, but it smudges like mad on me. It works like a charm for tightlining though! (What is tightlining?)
