Hello dearies! I have a lot of work to do but I took a quick break to post this entry LOL! I love gel liners. I don't know why haha. That's why I bought both Stila Smudgepots and MAC Fluidline. I put both to the test to show you which withstood more. I'll also reveal which one is my favorite.
First let's go look at the product. The Stila Smudgepot you see here is not the full size. It's the mini size I got as part of a set. The full size of the Stila Smudgepot is bigger than the MAC Fluidline that you can see on your left.
MAC Fluidline: P1,100
Stila Smudgepot Full size: P695 (I'm not sure as I bought this from Ebay)
Packaging: I find that MAC has better plastic, since Stila's plastic cover is made of thin plastic, as opposed to MAC's cover which is made of thick plastic.
So here are the swatches. MAC Fluidline on the left and Stila Smudgepot on the right.
As you can see, both liners make a good black, dry fast, although I find that MAC Fluidline is a teeny tiny bit creamier than Stila Smudgepot.
An on to the test. After waiting for both of them to dry, I rubbed both hard with my dry finger. Let's see what happened:
As you can see, MAC Fluidline smudged quite badly while Stila Smudgepot smudged just a tiny bit, although it's hard to see in the photo.
I wet both of them through running water:
Both showed no change.
Then while they were still wet, I tried rubbing both with my finger.
Both smudged a bit, but just a little bit as compared to it's previous state.
So who won? Well, obviously it was my Stila Smudgepot. I've said this a lot of times in Girltalk, Stila is definitely my favorite brand for gel liners! It got everyone beat. Plus it's cheaper than MAC Fluidline but has more product. Yey Stila!
Tip: Right after dipping your brush, close the jar immediately! Or else it will dry up.
