  • Imaginary (frost): Blackened navy

Packaging: 9.25/10

Paint Pots are housed in clear glass jars with plastic, twist-off lids. The packaging is on the heavier side because of the glass, but is designed well and will keep the product from drying out if you keep the lids tightly closed.

Quality: 9.5/10

Posh Paradise has a great range of new Paint Pot colors. There are both light (Treasure Hunt, Nubile, Genuine Treasure) and dark (Hyperviolet, Idyllic, Imaginary) colors. There is also a mixture of more and less frosty finishes.

Overall, the formulation is creamy and applies smoothly, giving opaque color. Genuine Treasure is the least opaque of the colors, giving more of a glittery finish. Hyperviolet is the least creamy of the colors, making application less even than with the rest of the Paint Pots.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

You can apply these with your fingers or a brush. You also get a variety of uses; Paint Pots can be used as bases, stand-alone eye shadows, or even as liners.

Posh Paradise Paint Pots apply smoothly and opaquely.

Price: 9/10

This product costs $17.50 (a recent price increase) and contains 5 g of product.

    I was wondering, do you happen to have Painterly Paint Pot? If you do, would you please compare it to Nubile?

  2. Lisa B. says:

    Ooh, Imaginary…such a beautiful color, but I could only use it as a liner…and I’d never finish the pot…Nubile looks like a slightly peachier and shimmery version of Perky, which is JUST what I wanted from Perky. 🙂 Definitely going to try that one!

    I only got Nubile and i really like it for soft, everyday look.
