Spend vs. Save : MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

Kung Hei Fat Choi girls!
Wishing you all good health, happiness and success!

and oh, Happy hearts day too!

******************
I borrowed my sister's fluidline to make a comparison.
Hope you find this post useful.


PACKAGING :

Both are made of glass jars.

WEIGHT :
MAC - 3 grams
Maybelline - 2.8 grams

TEXTURE :
MAC is a bit creamier than Maybelline.

COLOR - PAY OFF :
Same intense black color.


(click images to zoom)

STAYING POWER :
(On bare hands without primer)
After a few minutes upon application, I rubbed it several times - it didn't budge or smudge!

When I placed my hand under running water and rubbed it twice, both liners smudged.
Maybelline smudged more than MAC, but hey- just a little bit!

See pic below.


TIPS:
Make sure to tightly close the jar after opening to prevent gel eyeliners from drying fast.

Other gel eyeliners I've tried:
Fanny Serrano gel eyeliner - dries easily after a month. Flaky texture.
Elianto gel eyeliner
- creamy consistency at first. Dries easily too, making it difficult to use.



FINAL THOUGHTS:
Blacktrack is a nice gel eyeliner, but if you want to save a few bucks I really recommend Maybelline! Its a dupe of MAC Fluidline IMO. I've had this for more than a month the texture is still creamy.


Till next time,

I love my maybelline gel liner, too! It's the one that I use in all my FOTDs.

Thanks for the comparison! I think I'd go for the Maybelline one, it's so much cheaper plus it comes with a brush :)

Hi sis, just read your review about Maybelline now. I have to agree, you save more with Maybelline and their gel eyeliner is so good! I love it!
