MAC Avenue Fluidline Review, Swatch, FOTD


mac fluidline avenue

MAC Fludline claims : Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes. Brush sold separately.

Price : Rs 1,000

Avenue is a part of MAC Me Over Collection. It is a charcoal brown gel liner with golden flecks in it. When I saw this in the jar, I expected it to be a bright black pop of color with golden flecks in it. But I am slightly disappointed that it is not a super black liner as it looks in the pot. It is softer brownish black with very pretty gold flecks in it. Infact, the gold flecks stay all day long , they show on the lids and add a little twinkle to your eyes. I have grown to like this liner but I think I was expecting more intensity of color from this.

But since it is a fluidline, it does not disappoint in any manner.

  • It glides on your lids like a dream.
  • Stays all day long without smudging , flaking or smearing.
  • Unlike other fluidlines, I suggest that you don’t wear this on waterline. The gold flecks are super smooth when applied on outer part of the eye but they kinda bother when applied on waterline.
  • You can use this color all over the lid as a base for smokey eye.
  • Avenue is a great shade for everyday wear as well. As the gold flecks are not over the top and the shade is a softer version of black. This never ever looks harsh or too strong on lids.
  • Never ever irritated my eye.
  • It takes almost 5-7 seconds to dry and then it sets for all day long.

MAC Avenue Fluidline is a part of MAC Me Over Collection. It has already been launched in US but I am not sure when will it launch here in India.

It is not a must have but it is pretty liner to have in your collection. For a similar effect you can mix your brown and black gel liner at the back of your hand, apply it on lids and dab a shimmery back eyeshadow on top of it. You can also apply some gold dust (Inglot Body Sparkles # 56) while the liner is still wet and you may achieve a similar effect. 🙂

  1. candel in water se bhara hua dia……… more innovations :clap: :clap:
    i have faces ki dark sparkle eye pencils…. 😛
    looks good :))

  2. wow.. this honestly looks beautiful Rati… the golden specks on charcoal black.. what genius! are they available in India now Rati?
    btw I love the way you take photos of the products nowadays… they look so artistic 🙂

  3. oooh this looks almost exactly like their buried treasure power point pencil ! and that works great on the waterline too so maybe imma skip this 😀 😀 😀 I was going to ask you when the Mac me over collection is launching in india … im drooling over some of the stuff in it !

      1. meh surf baby is still so inappropriate …. summer collection at the end of the monsoons !!! its terribly annoying … and im not looking forward to surf baby at all … mac me over is like sold out on mac online … but it seems like a nice fall appropriate collection …

        and seriously try Buried Treasure Power Point Pencil …. its a better version of Avenue …

        1. yeah it is a total winter collection. all nice rich warm colors. I mean i have also kinda lost excitement for surf baby. It’s way too delayed. i am seriously not looking forward to bronzers at this time of the year. I am dying for sheen supremes to launch. they have awesome texture.

          1. yes yes exactly !!!! time for bronzers are gone gone gone :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: all the oranges are coming in surf baby when now its time to bring out the berry shades …. sheen supremes are that good ? what about the mattenes … those should also come soon na … eventually types ?

              1. :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: i want it after reading your review !!!!! :waaa: im really not liking how late mac collections are coming here and that too for no obvious reason !

  4. honestly I didnt like the intensity of the color ..though i loved the golden specks in it :waytogo:
    I think it wont show up much on pigmented eyelids such as mine :nababana:

      1. not yet :(( as will be going to mumbai next weekend, btw any idea on kryolan products? i know they are used in professional makeup and are reasonabley priced but wanted to know if they are good for beginners too ?:) I know a place just next to ma home in mumbai where they are available and i thought of checking them out next weekend 🙂 let me know if you can suggest any good products from it i will check out.. :thanks:

        1. kryolan is the baap of all make up and cheaper too … pick up their brushes for sure !!! by any chance are you talking the kryolan shop in lokhandwala ? and their face powders … but just be careful of your shade selection … since any place that sells kryolan doesnt have very well educated sales staff …

        2. they are very good professional products parita. their bases were something that I have used and they have been pretty good. The only thing i am not sure about are the ingredients . Since those are professional products the pigments are quite strong in their products and that’s not somethinG i am too comfortable using on day to day basis.

          their aqua colors, derma foundation are fab!

            1. Thank you Janhavi and Rati :teddy: :puchhi:
              @Janhavi, yeah the same shop but i dont think its kryolan shop more like a beaut center where they sell kryolan as well 🙂 I am just eyeing their eyeliner sealer..have heard a lot abt it and its oil control powder for my oily skin and matt finish.. 🙂

              @Rati, I totally agree with you 🙂 professional pigments is something which I am not comfortable with..since I am just a beginner 🙂 I have heard about their derma foundation but can it be worn everyday? and i think its pretty costly as well na ?:)

              1. not sure of the price parita but as i said I am not sure of the ingredients as well. Guess may be you could click the pic of ingredients and see But quality and performance wise they are very good products. :))

                1. :thanks: Rati..i’ll def check them out and ingredients..dont wanna risk applying any weird chemical on ma face i’d rather be bare faced 🙂
                  btw how can we differentiate between a fake Mac product and the original one? ?:) Since even i have seen lots of fake Mac in shops i was just wondering if there was a way to differentiate?

  5. OOOh!~ :woot: What a pretty liner!! Magar I will never spend so mch on a liner unless koi mujhe budday par khareedke deni ki offer kare. 😐 😐 😐

    …Does MAC have sales?? ?:)

        1. @Nupur: Haan! Pata hai…magar maine toh Pa ke jeb me bada sa ched bana diya na,parson…isliye mera new (zabardasti) rule: no shopping for next 3 months. :dumb: :dumb:
          …Aur MAC ka product toh kabhi bhi 250 nahi ho sakta! :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:
          Kitna masst duniya hota if that was true! :dumb:

          @Rati: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: Stupid costly but super awesome MAC!! :hunterwali:
          …Maybe if I can sneak into one and lootofy them.. :struggle: 🙄 :sidefrown: :idk: :whistle:

              1. they are all fake. made in china hongkokng and getting imported here. i saw huuuuuuuuuuuuggee stalls of fake mac in bangkok also. that was toh like black market adda. 😛

                  1. Whenever I hear the word “adda”my mind goes into :phoolan: :phoolan: and :duel: mode! :lol2: :lol2:
                    I saw a full fake mac lip conditioner…The logo was wrong and so was the size. 😐
