With just a couple of days remaining until the big premiere, the new MAC Mickey Contractor Collection (opens Jan. 6 in North America; internationally shortly after that) has a lot of us singing Hooray for Bollywood.
Reader Megan had a question about a product that promises to be one of the stars of the show…
“Do you think Siahi Fluidline is similar to Delft Paint Pot?â€¨ Thanks!”
It’s a shimmery teal with a hint of gold, and it, like the rest of the Paint Pots, feels softer and slightly fluffier than the Fluidlines do to me.
I usually wear the Paint Pots as cream shadows and/or eyeshadow bases, although they’ll double as liners, too.
About Delft, it’s like Siahi’s lighter, greener cousin; however, they both have very different shimmers. Siahi’s looks rather teal to me, while Delft’s is more of a straight up gold.
While I was rutting around in my stash for Delft, I also noticed that teal blue Korres Eyeliner Pencil in Blue Petrol looks a little like Siahi as well, except that it’s darker, with a matte finish.

I’m curious… Can you think of any drugstore dupes for Siahi?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. This isn’t MAC related, but I just got word that the Urban Decay Naked Palette is currently available again online at sephora.com. This will sell out fast, so if you’ve been wanting it, better get on it sooner than later!
That’s Siahi on the left and Float on By on the right.
