At first I didnt even want this color pigment. I was like MEH its whatever...but after getting it and trying it out it is pretty awesome. It isn't black but isn't purple but isnt really burgundy its just this unique color you can pair with browns, golds, blacks, purples, reds.....I just really love it. It is definitely VERY pigmented as it is quite dark so as long as you make sure to tap off the extra from your brush you should be golden :) LOVE IT though!!!!

I find this to be a very interesting color. It's a smokey plum color with super fine multi-colored shimmer. It's a very dark color. For me, it works best with a smokey-eye or gothic/vampiric type look. It's very nice and unique IMO

This is just beautiful. I like using it over MUFE Aqua Cream #17, blend it out with shroom and apply a nice black winged liner with a nude lip. There is something about this pigment that makes it so unique. I am still trying to figure out if its the color and the way it can change to look one way from another, or how great it looks with just about ANY color. Whatever the case may be, I use this ALOT, and hope I can find a another or it gets repromoted before I run out!

I love this pigment, part of the MAC Fabulous Felines line. It's a sort of dark brownish black with a hint of glimmer. I use it in the crease and to set my eye pencil when I smudge it. It stays on all day and the colour is just lovely. I recommend it to anyone who likes dark colours; it's quite intense so if you prefer a light, fresh look, I wouldn't use this one. If you're going for the mysterious vixen look; this is the colour!

Released with MAC's Fabulous Felines collection: Never have I been so confused by a color, but not in a bad way:)It's a taupey, blackened dark brown with burgundy hints..I think..LOL just when I think I know what color it is, it seems to change depending on the lighting. You can't get a true sense of the color simply by swatching because on your hand it appears muddy, dark, and matte. It takes on different shades the more or less you apply and blend. I used what was in the lid of my pigment jar with a big, dense shading brush and I buffed it on to my lid ; apply more on the lid and lighting toward the crease.. It's a lighter burgundy brown toward the crease and a deeper blackened taupey brown on the lid. Then I used my Too Faced Liquif-eye to create a liner and it took on the appearance of a darker version of Guerlain's Oriental Metal kohl. It also enhances my green eyes really allowing them to stand out all while creating a super sexy smokey eye. I'm sold..Worth every penny of the $19.50

It's a nice almost matte blackened taupey color with a faint shimmer. nothing special. not "moth brown in pigment form" or any other nonsense you may have read. but I like it because I wear taupe whenever I wear make up, and my favorite Slayer song bears the same name, "Bloodline." this makes a great liner and crease color. I would not purchase again because I got a full size jar, and I have Stila "espresso," which is pretty much the same color on me. so buy it if you lack a nice alternative to black, otherwise skip it. the LE collection theme is so cute though. >^..^<

I swatched this at the MAC store and fell in love with it, yet something told me to hold off on buying it. I went back the next day and swatched it again and all I kept thinking is where have I seen this before. Well the answer to that was in my makeup drawer. I asked for a sample and came home and swatched that next to my LORAC After Party eyeshadow, and what do you know...THEY ARE THE EXACT SAME COLOR!!! No wonder I was so attracted to it. So for some of you that weren't able to get this pigment and really wanted it, check out LORAC's After Party.

I actually never planned to buy this until I saw on specktra that Erin called it a pigment version of the super hard to find MAC Mothbrown eyeshadow. Although I had Mothbrown coming in a swap I'm such a sucker for hypes that I bought it the moment I saw it one the website. Just so you know, this is absolutely nothing like Mothbrown.
Bloodline is pretty much as it's described on the MAC site; dark dirty brown purple (I would add over a blackish base). Bloodline looks brown in the pigment vial but it really just shows up as neutral blackish with purpley shimmer/light frost. It is labeled as a frost but it is really not frosty at all, it has a super fine frost-like shimmer but it is very subtle and nothing like the frost in other frost type shadows. Mothbrown, on the other hand, is cool dark greyish taupe (no where as dark as Bloodline) with strong & obvious but very fine supercool purple frost. The frost is so cool that sometimes it looks blue to me.
Anyways, that's just for people who read the same thread on specktra as me. Even though it is nothing like Mothbrown (which I got and also love), I am in no way disappointed with Bloodline and is very pleased with it. The color is great and very easy to work with. It has very little and minimal fallout for such a dark color and is very easy to blend. It stays on all night long through the hot sweaty dancing and long walks back home. I tried to line my waterline with it and it didn't stay (but then again nothing stays on my waterline other than MAC liquidlast liners). However, it didn't bother me very much because it faded away nicely and did not smudge everywhere.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have a dark/blackish shadow that is easy to work with and has a subtle pop as opposed to the traditional matte black. If I ever use this up (which will never happen) and it is still sold by MAC, I would definitely repurchase.

Bloodline from Mac is a plum brown which I personally found to be matte in my opinion I used it for a dark smokey eye paired with smolder by mac and false lashes and nude lips. I personally also love the name and I found it easy to work with.

Goodness, but is this stuff DARK!
I made a complete mess of it the first time I tried to apply Bloodline, and ended up looking like a ghoul.
That said, Bloodline is pretty, a dark (did I mention dark?) brownish plum, or plummy brown, depending on the light, with a smooth creamy texture and some very subtle shimmer.
If I can learn how to apply this better, I think it might actually turn out to be rather flattering to my green eyes.
As things stand now, the only way I can make Bloodline look decent on me is to apply it, cringe, then wipe most of it off. That seems rather pointless, so I'll probably just be content with the free sample a lovely friend gave me, and not purchase this.

I cannot believe I am the first one writing a review, especially considering that this pigment has been sold out for DAYS!!! Perhaps we all bought the pigment online and nobody has received it yet???
Whatever the case, I just got mine today so it is my duty as a diligent MUAer to tell you how I feel about it.....
LOVE IT!!!! Finally a dark MAC pigment!!! (Sorry Dark soul, I don't like silver sparkles, and sorry Deep Blue Green, you are a fallout disaster). Bloodline is a deep, smokey purplish brown (or brownish purple depending on the light), and also has this vague bizarre blue-grey haze in certain lights. I would not go as far as to call that blueness a duochrome, because it is faint, but it gives the pigment a certain something special.
Personally I think the best thing about this pigment is it's depth, that you can make it REALLY dark, you can use its darkness as a base for lighter pigments, and it blends REALLY well. I tried it today with vanilla pigment on the inner eye (pretty), then tried Dazzleray (also pretty), and then tried Gold pigment, which was the winner. SO PRETTY! Obviously this pigment will look great with silvers, violets, and cooler highlights, but on me I think it is stellar with yellower golds and bronzes, so don't forget to put this pigment to the test because I think it can handle just about any color you throw at it.
By the way, I know that this is sold out online, so if you are not near a MAC counter you can get 1/4 tsp samples at www.thebodyneeds2.com. (Not affiliated with that site, I just love it for MAC pigment samples)
UPDATE: Still loving this! I notice now that as this pigment wears, on me it begins to turn into a smokey bluey-purple....it sort of loses it's brown-purple warmth and heads to cooler town. That said, no matter what color I have paired it with, it still works when that happens, and I am NOT generally a person who can wear cool charcoals, so this is still very unique color. Also, it is looks like a matte, so for those of you who need sparkles, you will need to add them yourself :)
.....Looks great with Mauvement!
