The texture is great like all other fluidlines. However, the color wasn't right for me. I only wear this to go to the supermarket when I just want to look really natural. The color isn't dark enough to define my eyes and it's also very metallic and a little red. For definition, I have to apply a really thick layer and this just makes the weird color more obvious. This is just not right for my coloring. Will not repurchase.

I LOVE Rich Ground! I have brown eyes and it makes them look ochre. I prefer to use it as an eyeshadow. This morning I put it on as an allover-lid base and on lower lashline, then applied Glamour check! in outer third of lid, lined and tightlined upper lashline with Blacktrack (smudged). Tons of Zoomblack and voilą! A beautiful bronzey smokey eye! I'm NW25, medium-brown hair with golden highlights (for reference).

Having tried and loved the fluidline in blacktrack I thought I'd give another colour a try as I wanted something which didn't stand out too much for my more natural days. This colour looks gorgeous in the pot however once on my eyes it just seems to clash with me. As others have pointed out, it is rather red and it isn't dark enough to be an eyeliner for me. I also find I get this on my eyelashes during application and it makes my look even more unnatural as I have black eyelashes.

I just got Rich Ground today, I was a bit disappointed when I tried it for the first time. I think it's because I have a tanned skin the color doesn't really stand out on my lash line :( It is a very pretty bronzy metallic color though.

I had a second attempt trying it as eye shadow, it turned out stunning. However I still want it to work as an eyeliner, I'll try to pair it with the right eye shadow and will edit my review then...

I'm an NC 35.

this is my second fluidline and i wanted to like this, i really do but the color just does not look right on me. i fell in love with it when i swatched it on my hand but on my eye it just looks ...ugh! for reference im NC 42 (summer) with golden undertone, black hair and very dark brown eyes. if that sounds like you then you might want to try this one first before dropping some cash. i'm putting mine up for a swap.

This color looks gorgeous in the pot, and it reminded me so much of Teddy Eye Kohl, but it goes on really rusty, orangey on me........not like the gorge color Teddy is :( Sucks cuz I was thrilled that they had a similar color to Teddy in their fluidline collection, but with way more staying power than Teddy (which is my one pet peeve about that eyeliner) but, boy was I wrong. I still dream of the day that the M.A.C people realize how great of a consistency the fluidlines have and how gorgeous of a color Teddy is, and they merge the two together in a holy union!

I've been using Teddy eye kohl for over a year, and I think that Rich Ground will be the replacement. Teddy, although a gorgeous color, has absolutely no staying power. Rich Ground is a shimmery bronze color that stays on ALL day no problem. The fluidlines are pretty easy to apply once you get the hang of it. I love the little jar they come in, too. It's a little bit pricey, but considering that you only use a tiny bit each application this jar would last me forever! Totally worth the money.

This was my first fluidline, and it replaced Teddy kohl and Bountiful Brown powerpoint as my most frequently reached for eyeliner. On me, this isn't anywhere close to too light, it's a nice rich color. I feel like I can do anything from minimalist to dramatic with it depending on the shadows I pair it with. I agree with everything that has been said about the amazing staying power. I've bought two more fluidlines since buying this one, but this is still my default color.

This is a lovely coppery reddish-brown color. I'm fairly pale with dark blue eyes and medium-brown hair and this really makes my eyes pop. I use it with a MAC 266 brush. It can be kind of tricky at first, if you aren't used to applying it. It takes a little bit of practice. The staying power is awesome. I highly recommend, especially for those with blue eyes.
