MAC Me Over Purchases & FOTD

It's been a while since I've purchased anything new from MAC as not really anything from recent collections has grabbed me but I did check out the new collections on Thursday and bought a few bits.

My favourite thing is probably the Fluidlines from the MAC Me Over collection as the colours are so deep and gorgeous. I also purchased an eyeshadow and a Pro Longwear lip pencil from the Style Driven collection which I am also very impressed with.

L-R: Pro Long Wear Lip Pencil -Absolutely It, Dark Diversion Fluidline, Midnight Blues Fluidline, Carbonized eyeshadow

Pro Long Wear Lip Pencil -Absolutely It
This is a very pretty medium pink with a slight warmth of brown to it that makes a great 'my lips but better' shade. It has a subtle silky metallic sheen that adds a little dimension and brightness to the shade. I think that these do have a good pigmentation and hold on the lips so they last longer then their standard lip pencils. I do use a lipbalm underneath as they feel a little drying. Despite this I would like some of the other colours as I like using their lip pencils instead of matte lipstick.

Dark Diversion Fluidline
A deep, dark burgundy shade that is not overly warm or cool. A really great shade for autumn/winter and feels very rich.

Midnight Blues Fluidline
This looks a little brighter in my pic but this is a deep blue with a bit of a green tone.

Carbonized eyeshadow
A deep brown with a slight golden sheen - a great neutral shade that I know I will get lots of use from. 

I used the Dark Diversion Fluidline today and I really love this look as it makes a lovely change from standard black liner.

Rest of products on eyes:
Hourglass Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo in Suede (lighter shade inner corner, darker shade all over lid), MAC Chromagraphic Pencil NW25/NC30 on waterline, Maxfactor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara*, Korres Brow Pencil 01.

  1. What a pretty look, your liner skills are impressive, no way could I do that!
    You know I forgot to even look at the Fluidlines, think I will have to go back now after seeing this :)

  2. I love the flick you did! I'm really taken with the fluidlines from this collection. Carbonized looks very nice in your swatch.

  3. What a gorgeous FOtD. I agree your lining skill are very impressive. I love that flick at the end. I might have to get a Fluidline from this collection--it's nice to see colors outside black, blue, and brown.

  4. Hi Replica
    Thank you, I do find it a bit tricky to get both sides to match perfectly but I think it helps that the Fluidlines have a good glide.

    Hi Jane
    Thanks! I think the colours are very flattering in this collection, and I do like a nice brown:)

    Hi Zuzu's Petals
    Thank you:) I like all these deep shades that are coming out for autumn/winter. Very much looking forward to YSL's collection with their gel liners as well.

  5. I think Midnight Blues Fluidline would make a lovely cat eyeliner. Think i wanna get it now. Thanks for posting swatches!
