This post is to celebrate an empty container. It’s different than what I’ve written about before, but I love finishing a product. I find it so satisfying to hit pan or finish a product. This photo was taken over the holidays when I had more free time to blog. There is about two to three weeks of usage left, but by the time I post this, it will be empty.
I purchased the Fluidline Brow gel back when it was a new, limited addition product by MAC. I bought two because I planned to use them when I blogged eye shadow looks. Soon after, I changed the focus of my blog and stopped doing eye looks. So, the product sat in my refrigerator for a long time. A while ago, I committed myself to use and finish my brow gel. It took over a year of consistent use, but I finished one pot and have one more to go.
It was a nice product, but I won’t repurchase. It was tricky to get used to in the beginning. You can easily end up applying to much product. I have sparse brows with bald areas and found using a dark, pigmented gel made me nervous before each use. You have a little time to correct mistakes with a Q-tip or brow brush before it dries down. It’s not as forgiving as a powder. I found the gel to last all day without smudging on its own, but I also avoid rubbing my brows. The gel has been part of MAC’s permanent range for a long while. I’ve read some reviews of this product drying out on people. I managed to avoid that problem by depotting a week’s worth of product into a smaller container. Towards the end of the week, the little bit I took out would start to stiffen up.
I look forward to using up this second pot and going back to a powder brow product. MAC’s Fluidline Brow gel retails for $19 and contains 3g (0.10 US oz).
