MAC Perky, Camel Coat, Stormy Pink Pro Longwear Paint Pots

Here is the next set of three MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots ($20.00 for 0.17 oz.) that have been added to the permanent range of shades available. Shades I’ve covered previously can be found here: Antique Diamond, Blackground, and Let’s Skate. You can also view all of the Pro Longwear Paint Pots I’ve ever reviewed here (as well as read what readers are saying!).  Perky was the only one that didn’t wear well on me, but it had only slight creasing that wasn’t too noticeable from afar. Camel Coat is similar in color to light-medium skin tones, so it may not show up well (as a color) for some complexions, so it might work better as a base or to conceal/blank out the lid.  Stormy Pink was a more interesting shade that I wasn’t able to think of a lot of dupes for–the muted, gray-ish quality of the color seemed to be what made it hard to find similar shades.

MAC Chrome Angel, Clearwater, Tailor Grey Pro Longwear Paint Pots

For fall, MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots ($20.00 for 0.17 oz.) sees the addition of some new shades–permanently–to the range. Some of the shades added are repromotes of previous shades released as Paint Pots. The Pro Longwear Paint Pot formula is supposed to be “long-wearing,” “highly-pigmented,” and also “[blend] smoothly over lids.” I wore the shades in groups of three, so each post will feature the three I wore. Shades I’ve covered previously can be found here: Antique Diamond, Blackground, and Let’s Skate. You can also view all of the Pro Longwear Paint Pots I’ve ever reviewed here (as well as read what readers are saying!). I bought the other nine shades to review, and so onto the first three…

NARS Interstellar, Mozambique, Black Valley Eye Paints

NARS Interstellar Eye Paint ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “silver.” It’s a bright, metallic silver. It had fairly good color payoff, but it was more prone to sheering out than some of the other shades. This is one of the less unique shades in the range, and you can find many silver eyeliners/cream eyeshadows on the market. Maybelline Cool Crush is slightly cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Chrome is similar. Urban Decay Cuff is darker. Maybelline Silver Strike is similar. MAC Tundra is darker. Buxom Chihuahua is similar. See comparison swatches.
