Love love love love. Oddly, I've been going through this obsession with makeup that makes you look better but like it's not even there. So, being olive skinned, golds golds golds (i think summer has to do with this) and more golds! As you can tell, warm metals have been my go to when looking at makeup and this is just beautiful for tan skinned ladies to add that bronze goddess look and bit of shading to make eyes pop. I use it to line my entire eye, then take a small shadow brush and just dust the paste onto the outer corners of my eyes, fading it into the crease. It gives the eyes a very light, unnoticeable, naturally beautiful dimension, as opposed to harsh browns and blacks. Wonderful constancy (the best of all the fluidlines in imp) and fabulous for every day use. don't be bummed if you're not a blue-eyed gal, my naturally darker ladies! This offers you a metallically fabulous eye look.

I love this. This color fits with my blue eyes and are easy to put on. I use a brush from elf and they work well together. I would like to try some of the other colors now that it is so easy to put on.

this is a warm, copper bronze liner. this is not glittery or shimmery but has a kind of frosty copper sheen. i think the colour of this is so beautiful and this has become a staple product for me.
firstly, this does look good on the inner rims and does last but i just can't wear it on my waterline. maybe it's because it's frosty? but straight after application this flakes into my eyes as tiny specs and irritates my eyes and contact lenses sometimes for hours. this happens with a lot of gel liners. it might just be the way my eyes meet with my waterline. but what i use on my inner rims now with this gel liner is either Urban decay's 247 pencil in Lucky (which is a copper) or Barry m's large eyeliner in 02 Brown (which is a warm shimmery brown). I'm sure MAC's Teddy khol would be a perfect match as well. i also pair this with a copper colour shadow in my crease.
the lasting power of this is flawless, but when it comes to the application, you need 2 or 3 layers to bring out the true copper. (especially since my eyelash curlers always swipe off a good bit of it as well). i'm sure this would look amazing on coloured-eyed ladies but i can honestly say this really compliments brown eyes too. it gives a lot of depth to the brown of the eye as Rich ground has so much dimension to it.
overall, this is a really special product and i would buy again and again!

One of my favourite MAC products. Ever.
For me, it works amazingly as an eyeshadow base. No creasing, no problem. For a bit of a lazy MU day, i throw on this as a base, a bit of chocolate brown pigment over the top and then a dod of goldenaire in the corner and off i pop!

I bought this today and I must say I really like it. I've got medium-olive coloured skin with black hair and eyes and despite other reviewer's comments, I think this fluidline works just as well for my colouring as it does for those with fairer skin and blue/green/light brown eyes.
It's a velvety formula which applies really easily and does not budge once dry. It's actually a very natural looking colour for me and I'd definately wear it as an every-day eyeliner as it adds a bit of shimmer when the light hits it.
For a more dramatic look I've layered it on top of a dark brown (I'm sure black would work as well) eyeliner (I use Bobbi Brown in Sepia Ink which is a black/brown). That way I get a more obvious eyeliner look without a bit of shimmer and colour to tone down aharsh dark line.
I'm not sure if I'm ever going to run out because it doesn't take much product to get the right look, but I'd probably repurchase

Rich Ground was my very first fluidline when MAC first came out with it. It is a coppery brown with shimmer. The first few times I used it, I liked it a lot because the color is so unique...but as time passed, I felt it was bringing out a bit of more red from my eyes. Not exactly my favorite, as compared to my love for Dipdown and Blacktrack, but great to have in my stash because it gives a bit of oomph to a nonetheless boring brown liner.

Since this warm, SLIGHTLY shimmery copper-brown is a complimentary color to blue, it makes blue eyes bluer! Beautiful and easy to apply. If you have blue eyes you must get this!

Between this and blacktrack you are set! This is great for a subtle smokey eye. This is very long lasting and I love the bronze color. This pot will last you forever so it is worth the investment.

Rich Ground is a coppery brown. It is now my best friend's HG - she is pale, with light brown hair and green/hazel eyes. It looks wonderful on her and is much less harsh and more flattering than a matte or darker color would be.
However, my extended experience with Fluidline has put it in a different position for me. Fluidline is supposed to be waterproof, and not smudge or flake. It was the first gel eyeliner that I ever tried, and I quickly fell in love with the results and how easy it was to use, once I got the right brush. Since then, I've tried Stila Smudge Pots and L'oreal HIP Cream Liners, and while I seem to be in the minority, I think that the Stila Smudge Pots are greatly superior to Fluidline.
Why? I've had no issues with drying-out, and I have swatched Smudge Pot in Black and Blacktrack Fluidline next to each other, and found the Smudge Pot to be significantly blacker. I also did a little experiment around Halloween when I did cat makeup on myself - I did it one day with Fluidline and one day with the Smudge Pot. The Fluidline faded much, much faster - after around 6 hours, while the Smudge Pot makeup lasted all day. This is parallel to the issues I've had personally with checking my makeup throughout the day and discovering that my Fluidline has gone AWOL. Charming. And I don't even have oily lids!
However, Fluidline has multiple uses - it's great as an eyeshadow base for darker looks, and for this use, it behaves much better than Smudge Pots. And it's definitely more affordable than Smudge Pots at $15 rather than $20. If you get the chance, though, I would test out the wear time for yourself before buying.
