MAC Pro Chromaline Review
I love my Mac Fluidline, really I do, but it just doesn't have the staying power I need for my day to day life. I decided that when I used up all my Blacktrack Fluidline I was not going to repurchase it (gasp), and instead get Mac Pro's Chromaline in Black Black. I have tried Chromaline in Process Magenta and loved how opaque it went on and how incredibly stay put it was, so logically black immediately put onto my shopping list
Since getting Black Black a few months back I must say it has put me back in love with gel/cream liners. It never budges, it goes on in one swipe completely opaque and as black as in the jar and oh so smooth.
It come is a larger jar then the Fuidlines, in fact it is the same size as a Paint Pot (5 g / 0.17 US oz). Only available at pro stores and on Macpro.com, they come in 9 shades that tend to be more bright (after all they are pro products that are meant for more artistic uses). Many are not eye or mouth safe, such as Process Magenta (which I wore on my eyes 6 times on my eyes with no reaction before learning that, so I will keep on doing so).
Discribed on the MacPro site as:
A waterproof gel/cream liner that provides all the smooth graphic benefits of a liquid liner. Creates precise, long-lasting lines of intense colour with dense matte coverage. Versatile palette offers both vibrantly bright and blackened shades. Applies smoothly, sets quickly. Waterproof and smudge-proof. Best when used with professional tools and brushes.

Creamy, smooth, opaque, long lasting, non-smudging, waterproof, what else could a girl want??
Personally I think I will slowly get the rest of the CMYK graphic colours (Cyan Magenta Yellow blaK) and white, I'm such a graphic geek that way. BTW those are the 4 colours your printer uses to make all the colours you print, in theory they are the only 4 colours you need to create all the colours you could ever need (in theory).
