A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.
This review is for the new Pro Longwear Paint Pots releasing with MAC’s Pro Longwear Collection for Fall 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Chrome Angel: Platinum silver
- Perky: Creamy coral with white pearl
- Layin’ Low: Creamy beige
- Clearwater: Seafoam
- Camel Coat: Muted beige
- Tailor Grey: Muted grey
- Stormy Pink: Muted grey-purple
All of these shades will become permanent in MAC’s Pro Longwear line.
Paint Pots are housed in clear glass jars with white, 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.
Perky is a light, peachy pink with a slightly glossy feeling. Stormy Pink is a slate purple with a matte finish. Clearwater is a pale, slate blue with a matte finish. Camel Coat is a slate taupe with a matte finish. Tailor Grey is a deeper taupe shade with a matte finish. Layin’ Low is a warm-toned camel color with a matte finish. Chrome Angel is a pale silver with a metallic finish.
A Couple of these Paint Pots are noticeably drier and stiffer in the pot: Stormy Pink and Clearwater. They take a little more pressure to apply and layering to get a smooth finish. The rest of the shades warm up quickly and apply pretty smoothly on the skin. Make sure to blend out the color quickly if you’re applying it into the crease because the formula dries and sets within a few seconds.
By the way, MAC has noticeably increased the price of these (which not so long ago used to cost $17.50) while still giving you the same amount of product–5 grams.
