Company’s Description

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. Brush sold separately.

This review is for the new, limited-edition Fluidline shade in Local Wares, which releases with MAC’s upcoming Style Seeker Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches:

  • Local Wares: Mid-tone olive with multi-dimensional pearlized pigments

Local Wares is the only new color from the Style Seekers. Rich Ground and Blacktrack, included in this collection, are both permanent shades. Dark Diversion, also re-promoted in this collection, has been released multiple times before. You can see a review of it, including swatches and photographs, here.

Packaging: 9/10

Fluidlines come in small glass jars with twist-off tops. The packaging keeps the product from drying out effectively.

Quality: 8.5/10

MAC describes Local Wares as an olive color with multi-dimensional pearls. The shade does technically have a brown-olive tone to it with small gold shimmer. For practical purposes, though, this shade looks like a grey-brown liner. You can’t really see any olive tone or the gold shimmer particles when Local Wares is applied in a thin line on your lid.

As is typical of the Fluidline formula, this shade is very creamy. It leaves a pigmented and even line of color across the lash-line. The liner lasts all day without any flaking, fading, or smudging.

If you don’t already have a deep brown or grey cream or gel liner, then this is a good choice. But if you were expecting a more unique color or to get a noticeable olive-green tint to this shade, you should pass on Local Wares.

Ease of Use: 9.8/10

The formula is extremely easy to use. It glides across the lash-line with zero skipping or tugging and gives you a pretty opaque line.

Price: 9/10

Fluidlines cost $15.00 each and contain 3 grams of liner. This is the standard price and size. These will last you a very, very long time.

    Would you say this is similar to blitz and glitz? And thank you for your amazing reviews! 🙂

    I was hoping this would be more of a green-toned olive, but I’ll probably buy it anyway. Thank you SO MUCH for always busting your butt to get swatches up before a MAC collection is available online! This is my favorite beauty website, and I appreciate that your hard work has saved me money more than it’s caused me to spend money. lol

      Thank you so much. 🙂 I will put the review up today, but I will say that it’s difficult to see the olive tone to this color when applied as a liner.
