Company’s Description

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 three (3) new, limited-edition Pro Longwear Paint Pots releasing with MAC’s Baking Beauties Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Fancy Frosting: Frosted white
  • Mooncake: Warm beige
  • Eclair: Light chocolate with gold pearlized pigments

Let’s Skate and Dangerous Cuvee, which are permanent colors, are also promoted with this collection.


Packaging: 9.25/10

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.

Quality: 9.5/10

Fancy Frosting is a shimmery, frosty white. The color is transparent but can be built up with a second layer.

Mooncake is a shimmery, frosty, warm beige color. It’s transparent but can be built up with a second layer.

Eclair is a chocolate brown with bold color and very fine, gold pearlized pigments. The color is opaque.

All three (3) of these colors adhere to the skin very well. Even the two glittery colors–Fancy Frosting and Mooncake–stay on the skin well without fall-out. All the colors resist creasing for a good four (4) to five (5) hours even without primer.

Ease of Use: 9/10

Theses Paint Pots are actually a bit stiff in the pot, but they warm up quickly and apply the skin easily. 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.

Price: 9/10

You get 5 g for $18.50, which is a dollar more than Paint Pots used to cost.

    I might just have to pick up Eclair. I’ve been debating on getting Paint Pot in Constructivist for ages but Eclair looks like it isn’t as stark as Constructivist appears. I’ll have to compare when I’m at the store. Thanks for your review and swatches!
