A couple of days back I purchased MAC Fluidline Eye Liner Gel in Copperthorn because it looked like a dream come true. I've been experimenting with vibrant eyeliners recently and been loving the results so I figured Copperthorn would become an absolute favorite of mine because I am that person who loves to wear rose gold makeup all day everyday.

Well to cut to the chase, I ended up not loving this at all. Perhaps its my lack of skill, but I just could not make this work. Initially I tried this as an eyeliner, but it always came out looking too thick and almost gooey even with Fix+. There was no way I could get the line to be opaque and smooth.

I then moved on to use this as an eyeshadow because Copperthorn is such a gorgeous bright coppery rose gold shade. Because this is a gel liner, I thought this would apply better than, for example, loose pigments. However, I experienced so much fall out with this and it was an absolute disaster because it applies so unevenly and sheer (not like a pretty glitter but instead an extreme unforgiving patchy application). Usually I find Fix+ to be my solution to all underperforming makeup products, but this one was just not having it.

Swatched second to the right, you can see my attempt to make Copperthorn more opaque. Can you see how patchy it is? On my blog, I almost always swatch without any primer, but the swatches on the right are actually with Fix+, so you get the idea.

Anyhow to sum it up, MAC Fluidline Eye Liner in Copperthorn was so difficult for me to work with and that's why there is no FOTD--I just could not. I wanted to love this to death because the shade itself just sings my same, but I will just have to move on and look for something else to replace my desire for a rosegold eyeliner.

On a side note, this gel eyeliner actually had a peachy smell to it which was a pleasant surprise! I'm not sure if that is the case for all their gel eyeliners but I actually liked it (and I've read elsewhere that other regular black and brown fluidline gel liners perform way better than Copperthorn).

I hope this review was helpful, and please let me know if you know of any rose gold gel or liquid eyeliner as I would love to find the perfect one!

XOXO,
