So we all know MAC has previously been lacking in the "wow department" with their collections over the past year, but Posh Paradise (and even the new Glitter & Ice) are working towards redemption!
Paint Pots are my thing; I love them!
(Well, I pretty much love anything that I can swipe on my eye with my finger and go)
I went to a MAC counter at my local Macy's where I'm pretty well known by the makeup artists (who are total sweethearts, love them!) since I'm always in there swatching away!
I went in thinking I was going to grab Nubile, Genuine Treasure, and Treasure Hunt.
But my plans changed quite a bit...
When I swatched Nubile I just couldn't help but think it was going to just be too pink on my lids, and the slight shimmer you see in the pot doesn't translate.
I still kind of want it being a neutral girl and all ;)
I REALLY wanted Genuine Treasure since I previously swatched it, but I was told some inconsiderate twerp actually stole the tester for that one and it was all sold out/they weren't getting anymore. Such a bummer, Genuine Treasure is continuously sold out online and since it is Limited Edition I just don't know if I'm ever going to get a chance to buy it :(
While bumming around after they told me Genuine Treasure was sold out, I went and looked through the permanent paint pots. I already own Indianwood which is a bit too bronze-y for everyday use, so I was looking for a brown shade that was more neutral. I wouldn't normally have gravitated towards Groundwork Paint Pot just because it looks like nothing special at first glance, but when I swatched it, it turned out to be the most gorgeous taupe color with a little bit of shimmer!
I already knew I was going to love Hidden Treasure, yellow golds are right up my alley since I think they look great with my brown hair/eyes! I'm a little on the fence with this Paint Pot though, it applies really streaky, but I think I just need to play around with it a bit more.
And the last Paint Pot I grabbed was totally out of my comfort zone. Again, someone stole the tester for the Idyllic Paint Pot, but the makeup artist said that I would really love it and pulled out the last remaining one to swatch. Surprisingly, I really have fallen in love with this burgundy copper shade!
