MAC Siahi Fluidline
MAC Siahi Fluidline

MAC Mickey Contractor: Siahi Fluidline

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 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.

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: 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.  With nice pigmentation, smooth, long-wearing color, it will be a great shade to pair with golds, greens, bronzes, blues, and teals.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase Siahi? How much is it?

Is it limited edition?


Any dupes?

It reminded me of Stila Peacock, though that is a pencil eyeliner; this seemed slightly darker.

  1. Reminds me of a cross between Blue Peep and Penned Fluidline- except with subtle gold shimmer added. Looks pretty!

  2. Carrie Ann

    I was hoping it would be more of a navy blue, but it’s very pretty.

  3. Maeve

    That is beautiful! It looks so blah in the jar, but man the swatch is gorgeous!

  4. oh my…this is completely stunning! I’ll bet it to be the first to sell out! I don’t own any fluidlines, but I might try to get my hands on this one!

  5. Joyce B

    This is a beautiful color.

  6. Zara

    OMG i need this

  7. Desiree

    I’m kinda glad Fluid Line hurts my eyes cuz that means it won’t hurt my wallet! But then I’m a little sad cuz I really love the color of the Fluid Lines in this collection =(

  8. For me to actually buy things lately I need to see them used in looks to get an idea on how I can use them. Especially something that’s not neutral.

    • Louise

      Look up blue eyeliner tutorials on youtube. I love the look of using a pop of blue on the lower waterline.

  9. Sarah

    Ooh! This is the color I always wished UD’s 24/7 liner in Covet was!!! I might have to run out and get this as soon as it launches…

  10. Wow. That is intense!

  11. Mai

    Okay wow I didn’t think this was anything worth looking at but that swatch of it just makes me want to get it! Thanks for the craving :(

  12. Emerald

    Eeek Definite must buy 😀

  13. Rae

    Wow! I love the intensity of this shade — it looks very different swatched than it does in the pan (in a good way; I was expecting it to be a bit of a bore. Nope, definitely not a bore!)

    It really brings out the pink in your skin, perhaps because of the unexpected teal tinge? Either way, it’s gorge!

  14. I really would love to pick this up, especially since I had such an adverse reaction to Stila Peacock. I’ve never had a reaction to the MAC fluidlines. The color is amazing :)

  15. Rosie

    Oh that is beautiful! I haven’t felt very excited about makeup lately but this is just fabulous!

  16. Dollymix8

    wow looks stunning!!!

  17. Dawn

    Wow, this is beautiful! The swatch looks so much better than the product does in the jar – usually it’s the other way around with so many cosmetics

  18. Sam

    how does this compare to teal pigment?

  19. Wow when I just saw this in the Jar I wasnt really liking it but after seeing a swatch AMAZING!!

  20. Jennifer F

    WOW how gorgeous! I was wondering if these new fluidlines were going to look anything like Bobbi Brown Ivy or Saphire longwear gel liners but they are so vivid in comparison. Now I know I must get these ones, I have been converted to gel liners and now kinda dislike liquid which used to be my favourite!

  21. Oh, yes! I’m getting this one! It’s gorgeous.

    I’m glad MAC is coming out with different colored gel eyeliners.

  22. Ashley

    OMG this is goregous!! i need to get this! do you think this will sell quickly???

  23. Ru

    Absolutly gorgeous. This color goes so well with Indian clothing. I feel like I have like 3-4 different blue liners though- and need to check my stash against this.

  24. YJ

    Oh wow, that is an AMAZINGLY gorgeous color!!

  25. Alison

    Christine – would you say Siahi is a navy blue?

  26. Heli

    Gorgeous! Hopefully it’ll sell well and Mac will make this perm.

  27. Jena

    I don’t usually get this excited over a color, but !!!!!!!!!!!! this is gorgeous!

  28. j

    DEFINITELY have to pick this one up!

  29. Megan

    Thats really pretty though I was it was darker. I’ll have to swatch it on myself and see how it shows up. thanks christine

  30. Diane

    I’ve wanted this and Ivy as soon as I saw the first pictures.
    I’m in love!

  31. Kathrina

    Gorgeous! I love MAC fluidlines and I feel like I must have this shade. Hopefully I can get one before it’s sold out.

  32. I love this. Absolutely, truly love this color. I can’t wait for it.

  33. Will this collection along with Peacocky be available at MAC Counters (in Nordstrom, Macys, etc.) or JUST stores? Thanks!

  34. Dhara Shah

    omg i want/need this

  35. kayleigh

    How does this liner compare to MAC’s Pearlglide intense liner in Undercurrent? Besides the green/gold shimmer?

  36. Pam

    So sad this is sold out online already!

  37. Crystal C.

    Hi Christine, will this look good with dark brown eyes? (almost black eyes)

  38. Allison

    This collection is coming out tomorrow at Nordstrom as well Christine?

  39. Shayna Marie

    omg I wanted this color SOOO Badly!!! but they sold out way to fast! :'(

  40. Vale

    Excuse me, girls, but I’d never used a fluidline before. Is it usable just as an eyeliner, or can it be used also as a “base colour”, like something I can put on the entire eyelid (a sort of e/s base)?
    I love this colour, but I don’t use eyeliner!

  41. Christina

    Christine, I’d love to see swatches on your eyes like you do for the lips for unusual liner colours!

  42. ak

    I just bought this.

  43. Judy

    this color is amazing!
    im checking all your reviews hehe :)
