Siahi -Yes It Is All It's Cracked Up To Be (And More MAC Mickey Contractor Products)

Can I tell you how excited I was that Bollywood makeup artist extraordinaire Mickey Contractor was doing a collection with MAC! Almost as excited as I was when I got engaged!

Ok, maybe not really. But it was close! I am a HUGE fan of Mickey Contractor and all his work on the gorgeous actresses in Bollywood.

Now that I have some of the products in my hands, I am going CRAZY!!! Being Indian, I can totally see how this collection makes sense....they are the epitomy of what most Indians like when they are getting their makeup done. It's either neutrals, a la the eyeshadow quad and lipsticks, or brights, like the new shadows and fluidlines.

Over the next few days, I will let you in on my faves, starting with my fave piece of makeup: eyeliner.

MAC Fluidline in Siahi from the Mickey Contractor Collection 

You can use this gel liner and draw a thin line for a more opaque, precise look, or smudge it out to get more of a brighter, smoky look. You can even use this all over the lid (blended well) as a base for teal/blue/black shadows. All I have to say is I might be seeing teal for the next few months.

In the pic above I used Siahi to draw a thin line on my upper lash line. This is definitely a more natural look, but I can see myself pairing it with golds, creams, and blue shadows for a more dramatic effect.

What do you think of Siahi? What products are you lemming from the Mickey Contractor Collection?
