MAC Ivy Fluidline
MAC Mickey Contractor: Ivy Fluidline
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).
I thought Jadeye might be comparable, and though I don’t own it, looking at various swatches showed it to be significantly tealer (in fact, back in its original launch, which was in Jewelescent in’ 06, I described it as teal–win!). Make Up For Ever #22 Aqua Cream is a reasonably yellower green, so they’re not quite dupes.
MAC Mickey Contractor will be available on January 6th at select North American stores and January 2011 for select international stores. It will be available online on approximately January 4th but may not be available until the 6th.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I really dig the shade itself, but I wish it was more pigmented. If you’re a fluidline fan, I think it’s worth at least a look-see, but I expect the fluidlines to sell out quickly.
