With MAC's new Fantasy of Flowers collection come many reviews and swatches from many lovely, talented bloggers but that's a good thing right? I mean everybody has their own opinions on products and that's the reason we all put them out there. So with that in mind come my reviews, photo's and swatches of the MAC Fantasy of Flowers Fluidlines in Sassy Moss and Phlox Garden.

I posted about the Fantasy of Flowers lipsticks (Which you can read here) and I mentioned that when I first seen the new collection it blew me away, everything was amazing and I hadn't seen a collection that attracted me like this one had, so without delay, the second I received the email from MAC I was on the site and placed my order. Included were both the Limited Edition Fluidlines.

I already own a single Fluidline in Blacktrack so I was confident with what to expect from the formula and application but the colours were new to me therefore I was ever so excited to use them and sadly ruin the beautiful untouched product that MAC had sent me. I didn't receive these until late at night as I had been out during the day so when I got back unfortunately I wasn't able to touch them until the next day in the natural daylight to picture the true beauty of these. Yes the torment was almost unbearable but somehow I managed to just look and not touch. An applause well deserved in my opinion.

You can imagine that first thing the next morning I was up and photographing these the second natural light was streaming through the window, I was finally able to see and feel just how amazing they were and imagining all the looks that I would be able to create with such wonderful colours. You may have guessed by now that these lived upto all expectations that I had.

Sassy Moss is described by MAC as a vivid green. I must admit that there was something in the back of my mind telling me not to purchase this, it's a green and well green isn't my favourite colour to say the least, especially green make up but I ignored the feeling and went ahead with the purchase determined to make Sassy Moss work for me. Now as I just said I'm not a green lover but this... perhaps it's the tiny gold micro shimmer or the excitement of something so out of my comfort zone but I may actually prefer this to Phlox Garden. It applies with ease and doesn't sheer out much upon application which is great as we then don't need to apply over and over to achieve the same colour thats in the glass pot, which I find to happen often with gel eyeliners. I found this to look more opaque than Phlox Garden did but I think it's due to the micro shimmer in the gel formula as can be seen in the arm swatches.

Phlox Garden is described by MAC as a vivid violet and this is one of the items that swayed my entire Fantasy of Flowers order. It's such a beautiful purple colour and I thought I was going to prefer this over Sassy Moss, I found Phlox Garden seemed to sheer out a tiny bit upon application so although it's buildable it takes perhaps 2 or 3 applications to get the desired effect, personally I'm not a fan of sore looking eyes and I think that this could unfortunately lead to this look if applied lightly. What I did love however was that it contained no shimmer so was a nice matte gel liner, I think shimmer could have ruined Phlox Garden slightly so I was pleased that when I swatched the gel liner it was as I had imagined. Phlox Garden is a very pretty colour but I will be applying it with a heavy hand and numerous brush strokes to achieve the desired results. Phlox Garden seemed to be slightly less opaque than Sassy Moss which can be noticed on the arm swatches.

The MAC Limited Edition Fluidlines in Sassy Green and Phlox Garden are both smooth to apply using a brush and provide long lasting results, they are buildable, smudge proof and just seem to last and last. The gel formula is comfortable to wear although it's difficult to blend these so to use them as eyeshadows can be quite a long application process. Using them as eyeliners creates a colourful eye effect whether worn with subtle shades such as neutrals to add a pop of colour or used with similar colours to create a fresh bright eyed look. 

I love both of these Fluidlines and I am so glad I chose to purchases them when I did as they are now sold out on MAC but you can still purchase these from Selfridges for £15.00 each however they are selling out fast. If you are lucky enough to live near a MAC counter then these should be released in store at the beginning of March.

What do you think of the Limited Edition Fluidlines? Are you more swayed by Sassy Moss or Phlox Garden?

Lots of Love

  2. They look so beautiful, great photos! Even though I'm incredibly impatient and want to swatch everything in my sight, there's something so lovely about photographing new untouched makeup isn't there? It always looks so perfect.
    I think I like the purple colour more purely as I don't think I would be bold enough for the green :)
