All of these shades will become permanent in MAC’s Pro Longwear line.

NORDSTROM - Fall Shoe Clearance

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.
