My Experience :  MAC had launched this collection back in Jan/Feb in the US, and it has just been launched in the Indian market. It has an array of things, something for everyone!

Since i have been looking for a felt tip liner pen, I grabbed this limited edition one. This is my first item from a limited edition collection and i am very excited about that if you can’t tell already!

MAC’s fluidline gel pots have a cult following but I am too lazy to apply an eyeliner on a daily basis with a brush. So I think its a superb idea that they launched it in a pen form.

I love things that are functional and time saving and this is exactly that.

The packaging is this lovely greenish-gray color with gold lettering. Its modern and edgy yet glamorous and timeless all together!

The felt tip is very thin and sharp, which gives thin as well as thick strokes with ease.

This product has a superb pigmentation, it delivers opaque matte black finish in one stroke.On the eyes, however, you may need more than one stroke to get a rich color if you have oily/watery eyes like mine.

It dries very quickly to a matte finish, in a matter of seconds, so you have to work quickly to get the desired thickness of your eyeliner;otherwise you may find it tugs a bit during application.

The longevity is superb, it lasted easily over 12 hours on me, even in this 40C temperature. This is specially remarkable as this product is NOT waterproof. It is smudge-proof and water resistant but would easily wash off almost completely with water!

The SA claimed it does not dry out while storing, as is the issue with most felt liner pens. However, i store it laying horizontally or tip-down just to keep the tip saturated.

Having said that, if you do think the tip has dried, never ever shake the pen to get the pigment.  If you watch my linked video, you would find out why!

Over all, i really love the finish and the staying power of this eyeliner pen and it has become my handbag companion. I do think the price is a bit steep and if you don’t care about the packaging as much, you can buy the Fluidline Pen from the standard permanent collection for a little less.

I would rate it 5/5.
