The Terrible Time When You Buy Something Bad | M.A.C Glamour Daze Fuidline

Last week I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping and went to M.A.C to check out their new limited edition Extra Dimension Skinfinishes. Unfortunately, they were all sold out. So in a frenzy, I tried a couple of the limited edition Fluidline's on my wrist and decided I liked two of them. I hurriedly bought them and exited M.A.C before I could feel 'impulse shopper's guilt'.


From the Glamour Daze collection


Left: Little Black Bow | Right: Feminine Edge 


Little Black Bow is a light grey/brown colour with silver glitter running through it, while Feminine Edge is a pale pink with silver and pink glitter running through it. They are both the standard, smooth consistency of the normal Fluidline products, except for the glitter of course. Maybe just a fraction creamier.

As you can see, the colours look beautiful and shimmery in the light. So when I tried them on quickly at the store, I was quite excited. Unfortunately when I got home I realised that the glitter particles in the Fluidlines is actually really chunky. I applied them like a gel liner to my upper lid and the dark colour came out beautifully, but the pink looked barely there. 

I've worn Little Black Bow twice now, just along my upper lash line and both times the glitter has ended up all over my face, on my lashes and sometimes if I'm really lucky, in my eye! I'm going to keep playing with these because I'm determined to find a way to wear them and I don't want to write them off as just being a plain bad product yet. I will update on these when I find answers!

  2. Oh the swatches look so beautiful. I can't believe they're bad, I almost refuse it lol!
    Maybe you can try to use them as an eyeshadow base? Or dab a similar colour on it when you apply the products and see if the glitter stays on its place then? Just some ideas!

    I've had many bad buys, ugh. I'm writing a post about it soon. I hate it when that happens!

  3. Do you think they'd work better with an eyeshadow primer?

    It is so annoying when you spend so much on a new buy then don't like it once you've got home. I wish you could return makeup! I bought a foundation and bronzer in a hurry the other day and both are too dark now I'm stuck with them and have wasted the money.
