MAC Blacktrack Goes On Incredibly Smooth With Brush #208
I have been wearing makeup for about as long as I can remember. There aren't too many brands or products that I have not tried yet. I have tried both store brands and the more expensive brands. I don't know what took me so long to try Mac cosmetics, but I'm so glad that I finally did. Like most women, I have always had difficulty getting my eyeliner to stay on my eyes. My eyelids can be greasy at times, closing the eyeliner to run. My eyeliner usually quits long before the end of the day has arrived. After reading several reviews about MAC fluid line eyeliner gel, I decided to make the splurge and purchased some for myself.
I chose to purchase MAC Fluidline eyeliner gel in Blacktrack. According to what I read online, Blacktrack is not a true black eyeliner. If you are looking for a true black eyeliner, Mac has a different color called "Blitz and Glitz" that might be better. It has a touch of gold in it, and is a much shinier black, as opposed to a flat black. The Blacktrack is more of a deep smokey gray color and looks much less harsh on my eyes. In addition to purchasing Fluidline, I also purchased a short angled brush to apply the makeup. The brush was a bit more expensive than what I was hoping to spend, but I have to say that it was well worth the investment.
When I first opened the small black box, I removed the small pot of MAC Fluidline carefully. After touching the fluid line with my new Mac brush, I quickly learned that it was much wetter than my usual gel eyeliner. I dabbed my brush in the center of the pot, and wiped it on the rim of the eyeliner pots. I didn't need very much product at all. I admit I was a bit nervous about using the angled brush, as I had never used one before. Now that it's done, I have to say that my first attempt was a success. I was able to make a beautiful smooth, even line flow across the top of my eyelids like a professional makeup artist. I was so impressed by this MAC product and it was only my first time using it.
From what I understand, MAC plans to discontinue their Fluidline line of products. I cannot understand why they would choose to stop producing such a successful line of makeup. If you read the reviews online about MAC Fluidline, you will see that there are many loyal fans of this product. I searched online to see if I could find a MAC cosmetic promotional code or MAC discount coupon to save some money before I made my purchase. Unfortunately, I was not able to find a reliable promotion code to use online. Purchasing this product through the MAC website would have cost me an additional five dollars for shipping. Instead, I chose to go to my local Macy's and purchase the makeup in person. I found that the makeup was the same price as it was online, and the Mac brush that I purchased there was slightly cheaper.
If you decide to purchase a MAC makeup brush, be sure that you maintain it in order to avoid it becoming damaged or frayed. To maintain your MAC brush, be sure to wash it with warm water and a small amount of baby shampoo on a regular basis. When you're done watching it, dry it carefully by flattening the bristles in the direction of the angle with a paper towel. When you are done, allow your MAC makeup brush to dry in a flat position. This will ensure that your brush lasts as long as possible. I purchased MAC brush # 208, and was very happy with it. You can purchase any brush, angled or otherwise that you feel comfortable using to apply your makeup. Also, be sure to replace the lid on your Fluidline make up as tightly as possible after each use, in order to prevent it from drying out. Your makeup needs to stay moist in order to ensure a smooth application.
If you haven't already tried MAC products, I highly recommend you give it a shot. They have some great sales on MAC Fluidline Eye Liner Gel
