MAC Avenue Fluidline Swatches & Review - MAC Me Over

Finally! A MAC Fluidline I can sink my teeth into! Not since Graphic Brown has MAC released a Fluidline that I've wanted so badly. Avenue Fluidline is my new eye liner treasure. If I thought I'd whip through it quickly, I would definitely buy a back up. But there is SO much product in there it likely won't happen =\ right?


Avenue is described as a "charcoal black w/ gold pearl". I see it more as a dark brown with gold pearl. The gold is much more prominent in the pot but a decent amount does show up on the swatch, and even on the eye. I did a thin line when I applied and at certain angles the shimmer is still noticeable. Avenue is nicely pigmented and applied like a dream. For application I used a MAC 209, but it will work well with whatever eye liner brush you're most comfortable with. I adore the color and am REALLY excited to try it out with the Chanel Topkapi Quad! I do have a FOTD done up using this liner, which I will be sharing later on this evening.

I didn't purchase any of the other fluidlines because Dark Envy and Midnight Blues were said to be similar to the shades of Ivy and Siahi from Micky Contractor. I have Siahi and Ivy didn't get great reviews back then, so I was nervous to try Dark Envy. If I can test them out in the store I can always pick them up then if I like them or think they're different. Dark Diversion I bought with the Stylishly Yours Collection and ended up returning it. It was sheer and no matter what I tried and how I played around with it, it remained sheer. I don't know if this repromoted version is any better.

MAC Fluidlines retail for $15.00 each and are available at MACcosmetics.com as well as at MAC freestanding stores and counters. Avenue is from the Fall 2011 MAC Me Over Collection and is Limited Edition.

Currently, Avenue (along with all of the other shades of Fluidline) is sold out on the MAC Website, BUT you can still probably find them at your local MAC Store or Counter. Call ahead to check on availability. I would do this quickly if I were you!
