MAC Fluidline: Dark Diversion

A while back, I didn't know what gel liners were.  Then, I graduated to wondering why people couldn't just use twist-up pencils instead.  And now, I am in love with them.  Dark Diversion is the second one I have of the amazing MAC Fluidlines, and what makes it truly special is that Rati sent it for me just in time so I have it with me for my birthday today.  Released as a part of the Stylishly Yours, Make Me Over, and the MAC Style Seeker collection, this is easily my favorite gel liner.

The colour is a darkened brownish plum with a very fine pearlized shimmer mixed in.  It goes on smooth and you have about a minute's time to smudge it if you wish to before it sets and stays smudge-proof the whole day.  No creasing, fading, raccoon eyes - nothing!

MAC's Dark Diversion is not as harsh as a black liner but is seen clearly on my darker skin unlike brown which just looks blah on me.

  15. Heyy Sumi..Thankoooo :D Both eyes - the photo didn't come out properly so me left it. I really don't have the patience to take so many face photos, but I will definitely try to do that next time :) :)

    I never apply an eyeshadow with this - I don't know if it's the proper way to do it, but I love the colour so much and am such a lazy bum, I use it just like this only everywhere :D

  29. Love the purple brown liner on you. Many many happy returns of the day. Today is my bday too. I am off to Oasis to gift myself some makeup on my husbands credit card. I know, I know I am evil. BTW after you flaunted your makeup pouches from Spar I went yesterday and got myself a teddy bear pouch and some orange baby tomatoes.

  30. happy bday radhika di.:).wished u in IMBB as well (preeti):):)

    di i want a suggestion..i don have any MAC ( *sad face*) n for MAC novice like me..wht "MUST HAVE" u wud suggest..??? atlest 3 products dat i shud have frm MAC..plz do let me knw..

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hii Preeti..thank you, again, for the wishes :)

    MAC makeup - I am a novice myself..have hardly 4-5 items from MAC - so I don't know if I could give any sensible recommendations, but purely on the basis of reviews I have read on other MAC-crazy blogs, I think MAC Viva Glam (or the other regular ones too) lipsticks and Mineralize Skinfinish powder (if it matches your shade and skin type) would be great picks. Again that's just my opinion from reading other blogs, I haven't tried either of those myself ever. And I love their fluidlines, have only two limited editions but I do plan on getting Blitz & Glitz some time if I can find it :) Am sorry I amn't that knowledgeable about MAC, so my answers would be quite vague :) :)

  42. preeti,

    I would recommend the same things radhika mentioned.

    1. Fluidlines- creamy, long lasting, dont chip, dont smudge - are fantastic.
    2. MAC Skinfinish Natural- one of the most awesome face powders around.
    3. Lipsticks- whichever shade you like. :) Their pro longwears are also nice.

  43. Looks gorgeous, it suits all eye colors!! and girl, you have a light complexion
