MAC Fluidline Gel Liner Waveline Review

I have always been a big fan of gel and cream liners as they are economical compared to pencils and pens. You get a good quantity for the price and these fluidlines can last a year even if used daily. MAC Fluidlines have some amazing shades in the permanent collection and one of them is Waveline. But is it worth the heavy price tag? Read to know.

Product Claim:

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.


Rs. 1100 for 3 grams

My Opinion on MAC Waveliner Fluidline:


It comes in a cute glass tub, transparent one so that you can see how much is left. But you need not worry as you would need very little for each use and one tub is going to last for more than a year. The shade name is mentioned at the back of the tub.


It is a lovely ink blue colored liner that is flattering on the eyes. It contains no shimmer or shine, just matte, so apt for daily wear.

It is not really well pigmented and you would require 2-3 swipes for neat opaque application.


MAC Fluidlines are known for the creamy texture but I somehow feel L’Oreal and Maybelline gel liners are better texture wise.

Staying Power:

The staying power is pretty good. I have oily lids and it lasts for more than 4 hours without creasing, with no eye primer or base.

Fluidlines can also be used as eyeshadows by using a mixing medium to soften the texture and then blending it with a brush. They make fantastic eyeshadow bases and can make your eyemakeup stay longer. How cool is that?

Why you should buy MAC Fluidline Waveline:

1. If you are a lover of blue eyeliners like me

2. If you wear eyeliners daily and do not want to keep buying pencils again and again

3. If you have the patience to carry a brush along with you everywhere

4. If you are looking for long staying eyeliners, especially if you are working

Why you should not buy Waveline:

1. Average pigmentation

2, Gel liners tend to dry out soon. I prefer storing them upside down in the given box. You would need a mixing medium to bring the texture back.

3. Expensive

Rating: 4.5/5

Final Words: MAC Fluidline Waveline is a lovely deep blue eyeliner in a gel form, that applies easily and stays well. I just wish the pigmentation was better.
