“Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on ‘foolproof’ with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes.”
Maybe that’s why I don’t get the urge to squirrel away multiple pots of the Fluidline colors, because each one lasts me so wondrously long.
Ah, but I did feel that urge today for the first time in ages — the urge to stock up on one (or two) spare pots of a new Fluidline — and the dang thing has such a perfect name!
They call it Added Goodness ($15), and for very good reason. MAC introduced this shimmery blackened mauve and two other limited edition Fluidlines, soft black Midnight Snack and blackened brown Wholesome, with the recently released Cook MAC collection.
Hark! — dost thou loins tremble? Don’t worry if they do. Some products have that effect on people. I felt joy wash over me the first time I swept Added Goodness on my lids. Then, when I read the words, “coming soon,” on the MAC website, code for “temporarily out of stock,” I felt a tinge of sadness…
But it lifted the instant I spotted Added Goodness over at nordstrom.com.
It’s just such an interesting color (and it even shimmers!), that mix of mauve and black — rich enough for darker skin tones but not so intense that it appears harsh on lighter lasses.
Oh, and here’s even more Added Goodness: this mauve leans neither warm nor cool. It’s right in the middle of the color temperature dial, so I think it’ll work well for gals with warm or cool skin tones.
I love what it does for brown eyes, and when I wink at myself in the mirror, the little flecks of shimmery micro glitter in it catch the light, giving Added Goodness even more dimension.
Seems to really make my eyes stand out, and I have a very strong feeling the color will also work wonders for blue, green and hazel eyes.
I think MAC just handled every aspect of this product well. A single layer delivers rich, evenly pigmented color, and the soft, smooth texture makes it easy to incorporate into soft, smudgy looks or looks with crisp lines.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at MAC counters, stores and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A+
I came across this a capella version of Whitney’s How Will I Know today and had to share it with you. I’ve probably replayed it at least 10 or 20 times so far…
I think it really shows off Whit’s voice when she was in her prime.
Hope the rest of your day went well. Onward to the weekend, right? What’s the first thing on your agenda for Saturday morning?
Mine? Sleep until 8.
