MAC Siahi Fluidline (Mickey Contractor)

MAC Siahi Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is new and limited edition from MAC Mickey Contractor, and MAC describes it as a “deep turquoise blue” with a frost finish. Siahi is rich, jewel-toned teal-tinged dark blue with a slight shine. I found this shade more pigmented than Ivy, and I didn’t experience the same sheerness with this shade, but the wear was still fantastic.  It reminded me of Stila Peacock, though it is a pencil eyeliner, but possibly a shade or two lighter.

MAC Ivy Fluidline (Mickey Contractor)

MAC Ivy Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is new and limited edition from MAC Mickey Contractor, and MAC describes it as a “bright green” with a frost finish. Ivy is a brightened teal-tinged emerald green with subtle yellow undertones. It’s not quite as pigmented as other fluidlines; I didn’t have any skipping when I tested it on my upper lash line, but it did not go on as opaque as I’d like. I had to do a second pass to get better results, but on the upside, it wore beautifully without smudging, fading, or migrating (eight hours of wear).

Q&A with Mickey Contractor

Mickey, how long have you been working with M路A路C?

It鈥焥 been 32 years since I started working as a makeup artist and this is my 6th year with M路A路C. I’ve collaborated with the brand since they launched in India. M路A路C wanted to work alongside a makeup artist with credibility, experience, the ability to inspire who was also an authority of goodwill in the industry. So when they came to me and said, “We’d like you to collaborate with us, we’re opening a store in Bombay”: I thought, “This is a Godsend for me”. Working with M路A路C was an opportunity to really convey my vision. They have such incredible authority and influence in the industry and becoming a part of that was incredibly exciting to me.

Had you already been using M路A路C products?

Yes, I鈥焏 been using M路A路C for years. I first discovered M路A路C when I was in Canada about 15 years ago where I bought Twig, Malt and Marrakech lipsticks. Those kinds of shades just weren’t available in India. In fact, so little makeup was available in India back then! I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

What鈥檚 your beauty philosophy?

For me, beauty is about a natural-looking woman who wears makeup, but wears it so cleverly that it doesn鈥焧 actually show. She鈥焥 also somebody who carries herself with a lot of confidence, not just someone who鈥焥 pretty, but who also has a lot of character. For me鈥hat defines beauty.
