A happy hello to everyone 😀
Yesss, I am happy, very happy today. Firstly, it is weekend and secondly, we have some awesome picnic plans with friends and some shopping plans too. 😀 And shopping always makes a girl happy, isn’t it? 😛 Well, there is another reason for my happiness and it is the product I am going to review for you all today. 😀 You all know I don’t like gel liners much, just because I take too much time applying them, but then they are the most ones used when I need to wear for long hours. I was never a fan of pencil liners as I always felt them to be very dry, but this product has totally changed my thoughts about pencil liners.
An eye liner that performs as well as Fluidline but in pencil form. High-coverage colour provides excellent and even payoff. The extremely soft and gliding formula is easy to blend shortly after application. Smudge-resistant. Offered in a range of finishes.
My Experience with MAC Evil Twin Fluidline Eye Pencil:
MAC Fluidline Eye Pencil is a new, twist up eyeliner pencil that MAC initially launched with their “A Novel Romance Collection” back in fall last year. The collection is gone, but these pencils are here to stay. 😀 These were launched in the following 7 shades and all of them have been added to the permanent line:
- Atomic Ore: Gold.
- Earth Sign: Deep brown.
- Deep Blue Sea: Deep ocean blue.
- Metropolis: Deep metal gray.
- Evil Twin: Blue purple.
- Black Brilliance: Black.
- Water Willow: Deep khaki green.
The eyeliner comes in black colored pencil which has a small color band at the bottom. All the other details are printed on the box.
The eyeliners comes in a twist up pencil form but beware, they are not retractable. 🙁 So be cautious of the amount you twist up as there is no going back. 🙁 Also, it is super soft and creamy, so a little more pressure can break the pricey product. The tip broke while I was taking the swatches for the review and I almost had a mini heart attack. 🙁 but I am still okay as sharpen-able form would have meant more product wastage.
Evil Twin is a bright blue-purple with subtle micro-shimmer. The shimmer is not visible on lids, it just gives a pretty sheen to the liner.
The Fluidline Eye Pencil formula has a cult following. Though I have not used the gel formula, but I still feel it is like having your Fluidline in pencil form. The liners are very creamy and smooth.
The liner glides onto the lids without any tugging or skipping. It applied smoothly and I was really amazed with it. The formula dries pretty fast, so one has to be quick if you want to smudge it, doing one eye at a time. Because once it dries and sets, there is no fading, smudging, flaking, or smearing. Seriously!!! The liner doesn’t move at all even if you accidentally rub/touch your eyes. 😀 Total love. 😀
The pigmentation is great, but I still prefer going over twice to make it opaque and the staying power is great too. On my lids, it stayed on and on. 😀 I removed it almost after 11 hours and it was still as bright and vibrant as when I had applied it. 😀 So MAC’s 12-hour claim holds good. It did smudge a bit on my lower lash line though. On my waterline, the staying power and the intensity was not the same.
It is easy to remove and comes off easily with an eye makeup remover, without the need of rubbing the lids to get the product off.
Pros of MAC Evil Twin Fluidline Eye Pencil:
- Beautiful purple shade.
- Stays on and on 😀
- No smudging or fading.
- Does not tug or pulls on the lids.
- Glides smoothly on the lids.
- Great pigmentation.
- No sharpening, less product wastage.
- Easy to remove.
Cons of MAC Evil Twin Fluidline Eye Pencil:
- Not retractable.
- Tip broke during swatching 🙁
- Staying power not so good on waterline.
Would I Repurchase MAC Evil Twin Fluidline Eye Pencil?
It’s certainly not the most unique color, but I am in love with the easy application and staying power, so I am certainly going to repurchase the shade and purchase more shades from the line. Also, though not cheap it is certainly cheaper that Urban Decay pencil liners. If you are a lover of gel liners, you are going to love this as well. Go and try out. 😀
