MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Fluidlines: Sassy Moss and Phlox Garden Review and Swatches

It's always a big event for MAC aficionados when the brand releases new shades of Fluidlines. The latest MAC collection, A Fantasy of Flowers has two new LE shades of Fluidline: Sassy Moss and Phlox Garden ($19.00 CA/$16.00 US.) All photos taken in natural light on NC 35 skin.

Sassy Moss and Phlox Garden

Sassy Moss - Described by MAC as "vivid green", Sassy Moss is a bright mid-tone emerald with fine gold shimmer. The shade has excellent pigmentation and is opaque is one pass. True to the Fluidline formula it is creamy, smooth and long wearing. A great bright shade for spring!

Phlox Garden - MAC describes this shade as "vivid violet", but I would describe it as a fuchsia based plum. Phlox Garden has good but not excellent pigmentation and tends to be a little translucent on application. I found I needed two passes to get opaque colour. The consistency is creamy and the formula long wearing, however I did find this shade wore away a little faster than most other Fluidlines. I think because the formula is a bit sheer it tends to look patchy faster.

I think MAC did a great job on both of these shades, it's so nice to see more creative colours in the Fluidline range. Although Sassy Moss has the best payoff of the two, my favourite has to be Phlox Garden as red or pink based plums really bring out the hazel tones in my eyes.

Grade: Sassy Moss, A
              Phlox Garden, B+
