MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Eyeliner in Lowlights
is a dark brown shade that gives me a softer eye look compared to a jet black eyeliner, which is what most of us reach for on a regular basis. When I started using an eyeliner back in my early teens, I got a dark brown eyeliner by mistake and since then I am hooked. I always have a dark brown shade in my stash for everyday use and if you remember previously, I used was obsessed with Stila's Smudge Stick waterproof eyeliner in Damsel. (Click for review)
Over the years, I realized that I need something in a 'pot' verses retractable pencil, because firstly, I use it daily and was running out of eyeliner pretty quickly and secondly, its much more eco friendly to buy a pot of eyeliner that literally lasts me a year, than throwing out eyeliner packaging every few months. So, that is how I got into the pot eyeliner craze. I use Bobbi Brown eyeliner in Black and I sanitize my pots with a alcohol swab every time I clean my brushes..
So with all that said, let's move on to the review and swatches MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Eyeliner in Lowlights.

Since I already explained why I switched to pots of eyeliner versus the retractable pencils in the intro, I must also add that there is 3gm of eyeliner in pots for almost the same price as one retractable pencil. I do understand the convenience of a pencil as there is no need to carry a brush, and it's the kind of convenience I like while I am travelling or even on busy mornings. However, we are not travelling anymore!! And I have been wearing just eyeliner on my eyes these days, cuz lipstick gets messy under a facemask.
MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Eyeliner retails for C$23 for this 3gm pot. MAC also gives you a 15% welcome discount with code 'welcome15' which means this can cost you just under 20 bucks!!
The texture of MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline in Lowlights is very creamy almost buttery and easily transfers to lids. I have to allow it to set and often have to do a second coat because sometimes it looks light brown instead of the promised 'deep, deep brown' shade on the website.
I think it's because it loses its saturation as I go over the lids, stroking with an eyeliner brush...or maybe my synthetic brush isn't doing the job right. The swatches look pretty good, so may be its just my lids. But after 2 coats, allowed to set, it does not budge. Absolutely no flaking and no smudging all day long!
I have also smudged this for a more softer looking eyes, have used as an eyeshadow and also used tried this as an eyeshadow base to apply more shimmery shadows on top for a brown shimmery look.

It always looks stunning and even though the eyeliner in Lowlights is lighter brown than what I had expected, it still is a great eyeliner to add to your daily routine. I will definitely repurchase this when I am done with this pot in the next 200 years! :D
Seriously, I have been using this since Dec 2019 and there is a very small amount that is used and the creamy texture is still buttery smooth!
High recommend this!
