Wet ‘n’ Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet 'n' Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren't Up Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio
Wet ‘n’ Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) contains a yellow, purple, and medium-dark pink eyeshadow. It’s a limited edition trio that you may still find, or you may be out of luck. I’ve asked my local stores, and they haven’t heard anything, and I haven’t seen them myself (in-stores), but I know they’ve released elsewhere and been cleaned out quickly.

This post, more or less, is to let you know that your time (and money) might be better spent elsewhere. Initially, I was actually able to get some color to adhere and show up on the lid without using a creamy white base, but all of the colors just fade so quickly–in mere hours. Of course, though touted as long-wearing and highly-pigmented, all three shades were completely gone after four hours of wear without a primer. Over a regular primer, there was significant fading but a hint of color left after six hours (these eyeshadows just eat primer!), and then over NYX Milk, they lasted seven hours with some fading and had better color payoff, too.

Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up #1 is a light-medium yellow with a satin finish. It had so-so color payoff, but it was very powdery and somewhat chalky, so it was very easily sheered out during application. Your best bet is to pat it on, and if possible, over something tacky/creamy. Fyrinnae Banana Mochi is more shimmery. MAC Bright Yellow is slightly lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches.

Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up #2 is a medium purple with subtle cool undertones and a satiny, almost matte, finish. It was very powdery and somewhat chalky, and it suffered from the same issues as the yellow eyeshadow–incredibly prone to sheering out on the lid during application. NARS Flowers 1 #3 is more satin-like. MAC Spoiled Rich is warmer. MAC Shock-a-holic is brighter. Inglot #386 is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.

Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up #3 is a warm, medium-dark pink with a matte finish. Like the other two, it was powdery and chalky, but it was the least powdery and chalky of the three. It had so-so color payoff but did sheer out easily on the lid. Urban Decay Noise is cooler-toned. MAC Tease with Ease is more shimmery. MAC Gameela is redder. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #2 is cooler-toned. Dior Bow is darker. See comparison swatches.

There are three other trios, and I did take photos/swatches of all them (as well as I’ve tested them all) — how would you feel about me just posting swatches and just an overview (no dupes or shade-by-shade review)? I’d like to just kick ’em out, but it’s always hard for me to post without a full review! Let me know what you’d like to see in the comments 🙂

MAC Fall 2013 Pro Longwear Eyeliners

MAC Definitely Black Pro Longwear Eyeliner
MAC Definitely Black Pro Longwear Eyeliner

There are four new shades of MAC Pro Longwear Eyeliner ($19.50 for 0.04 oz.) that have been added to the permanent range. If you had good luck with these when they launched with Apres Chic, I’m sure these will wear similarly. Unfortunately, these didn’t wear well for me then, and they aren’t a particularly long-wearing eyeliner. It’s supposed to be a 12-hour, waterproof formula with “creamy, dense colour that glides on smoothly” and won’t smudge. All four shades show significant signs of wear by eight hours, let alone twelve. The eyeliner thins out considerably and is probably 50% thinner than by the eighth hour than when I initially applied it–this was consistent and happened with all four shades. These were slightly water-resistant, but they didn’t seem waterproof, as they ran slightly (Definitely Black was particularly troublesome).

Definitely Black is described as a “deep black.” It’s a rich, neutral black with a satiny finish. It had fairly good color payoff in a single pass, and it was buildable to opaque color in two layers. A note about this shade… my pencil actually says “Definedly Black,” not Definitely–and online it is listed as Definitely, as in the press release, it was written as Definitely. I’m not sure who’s in the wrong here! There are numerous black eyeliners that wear better and longer (including some by MAC).

Devotion is described as a “deep army green.” It’s a dark, forest green with subtle olive undertones and emerald green shimmer. It was semi-sheer when applied in a single layer, but it was buildable to mostly opaque color with a few passes of color. The consistency was slightly dry. Urban Decay Loaded is darker, less warm-toned. See comparison swatches. I looked at my older green eyeliner swatches but nothing seemed that similar (all were warmer).

Powerline is described as a “muted gold.” It’s a golden brown-bronze with a subtle, metallic sheen. It had decent color payoff in one stroke and was buildable to opaque color. It applied smoothly and evenly, though it was half-gone after eight hours of wear. MAC Gilt Gourmet is more sparkly. NARS Campo de’ Fiori is yellower. See comparison swatches.

Strongly Willed is described as a “deep eggplant.” It’s a dark, warm-toned purple with flecks of violet and berry pearl. It had so-so pigmentation in one pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color but it did drag/skip somewhat so it takes a few passes to get there. MAC Purple Dash is lighter. MAC Fancy Moves is also lighter. Chanel Cassis is less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Black Plum is darker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Rubenesque, Layin’ Low, Constructivist Pro Longwear Paint Pots

MAC Rubenesque Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Rubenesque Pro Longwear Paint Pot

Here is the final 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!).

Rubenesque is described as a “golden peach with gold pearl.” It’s a warm-toned, gold-shimmered peachy-copper with a frosted, metallic finish. This shade was part of the permanent Paint Pot range for awhile, so you might already have it. It had semi-opaque color payoff but tends to want to apply more sheer than opaque on the lid. If you’re someone who likes wearing their cream eyeshadows as a sheer wash, this one works well for that. I recommend patting on a layer, letting it dry down a bit, then adding a second layer to get more opaque color if desired. I experienced very slight creasing after eight hours. LORAC Light Bronze is lighter, powder. Disney All Aglow is a powder product. bareMinerals Sundance is a bit darker. See comparison swatches.

Layin’ Low is described as a “creamy beige.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark peachy-beige with a matte finish. This shade was previously released as a regular Paint Pot. It had nice, full color coverage and the texture wasn’t too thick or too thin. It blended out well on the lid and didn’t have any wear issues for twelve hours. Kat Von D Unrequited is similar but a powder. Bobbi Brown Terracotta is darker, powder. MAC Tete-a-tint is darker, powder. NARS Ramatuelle #3 is more orange, shimmery. Urban Decay Moonflower is warmer, more shimmery, powder. See comparison swatches.

Constructivist is described as a “metallic brown with red pearl.” It’s a dark, bronze-shimmered brown with subtle warm, red undertones and a pearly finish. This shade was part of the permanent Paint Pot range for awhile, so you might already have it. It has lovely, true-to-pot color payoff that applies with opaque color or can be blended out for a sheerer wash of color if desired. I didn’t have any wear issues with this shade over a twelve-hour period. Urban Decay West is darker, powder. MAC Life’s Luxury is slightly deeper. MAC Carbonized is similar, powder. MAC Roasted Chestnut is more shimmery, lighter, and powder. Chanel Ebloui is redder in tone, more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

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

MAC Perky Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Perky Pro Longwear Paint Pot

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.

Perky is described as a “cream coral with white pearl.” It’s a warm, peachy-orange with a soft, pearly shimmer. It was fairly pigmented, but the consistency was thinner and very creamy, so it blended out well–but it also sheered out easily so pat, let it set, then pat on a bit more for optimal results. I experienced slight creasing after eight hours of wear but it held up moderately well. This shade has been released in the regular Paint Pot formula previously. Estee Lauder Violet Underground #3 is darker, powder. Tom Ford In the Pink #2 is more beige. Too Faced Ringleader is similar. theBalm Stubborn is less warm-toned. theBalm Third Eye Blinded is darker. See comparison swatches.

Camel Coat is described as a “muted beige.” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium mix of gray and beige–it’s like a really light taupe or “greige.” It had really nice, opaque color coverage with just the right level of creaminess to enable easy blending but not so much that it slipped around on the lid.  I saw a little fading of the color after twelve hours. MAC Tailor Grey is darker, while Maybelline Tough as Taupe is even darker. bareMinerals Suspense is similar but a powder product. MAC Rainy Season is also somewhat similar but a powder. See comparison swatches.

Stormy Pink is described as a “muted grey purple.” It’s a muted, cool-toned purple with a gray-ish cast, but it read more purple than gray when I swatched it. It reminded me of an older Paint Pot called Stray Gray (which I don’t own). The color payoff was good, and the consistency was lightly creamy–not too thick or too thin–and blended well on the lid.  I also saw very slight fading towards the end of the twelve hours I wore it. Marc Jacobs The Tease #2 is darker, powder. Fyrinnae Agenda is shimmery, powder, darker. See comparison swatches.

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

MAC Clearwater Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Clearwater Pro Longwear Paint Pot

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…

As a regular customer just using the product, I haven’t noticed any difference between the Pro Longwear and regular Paint Pot formulas, generally. When these originally launched last year, I compared ingredient lists between a few I happened to have in boxes, and they were the same (except for the limited edition Paint Pots from Posh Paradise, which were off by one ingredient). I’ve heard that the idea was to make Paint Pots in line with MAC’s Pro Longwear concept and that they were tested to ensure adherence to their PLW standards (or something like that). You’ll actually find all of the newly released shades under just “Paint Pot” on MAC’s e-commerce website.

Chrome Angel is described as a “platinum silver.” It is a brightened, light silver that isn’t too cool- or warm-toned. This shade started to show signs of creasing on me after six hours, which worsened for the twelve-hours I wore it. It did not apply with fully opaque color. Your best bet is to apply a single layer, move on to something else, then apply a second layer. Any more than two layers gave it a really thick, caked look that tended to give the lid a crepe-y look. Maybelline Cool Crush is cooler-toned. NARS Silver Factory is similar. MAC Virgin Silver is also similar. MAC White as Snow is similar but a powder product. Chanel Infini is also similar but powder. MAC Fancy Frosting has chunks of sparkle and is more white than silver. See comparison swatches.

Clearwater is described as a “sea foam.” It’s a muted, bluish aqua cream with a matte finish. When sheered out, it almost looks like it has an overcast of gray. I think it’s a rather interesting color, but it seemed extra creamy and had a thinner consistency than other Paint Pots, so it was harder to get really opaque color that didn’t naturally want to sheer out. I had some slight creasing that was visible after eight hours of wear. MAC Sky Blue is more shimmery, powder. Inglot #367 is lighter, powder. Dior Blue Lagoon #1 is slightly brighter, powder. bareMinerals Illusion is lighter, powder. See comparison swatches. It was also similar an old, limited edition Paint Pot called Rollickin‘, which had shimmer to it.

Tailor Grey is described as a “muted grey.” It’s a medium-dark taupe–a mix of gray and brown–that leans warm and has a mostly matte finish. It had fantastic color payoff, and it blended and applied well on the lid. On light to medium skin tones (with neutral to warm undertones), it would work well to contour the lid. It applied darker than it appeared in the pot. I didn’t have any issues with this shade wearing well for a full twelve hours. Maybelline Tough as Taupe is slightly darker but similar. MAC Fabulous Fit is a powder product and slightly grayer. See comparison swatches.

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Violet Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Violet Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Violet Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Violet Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that launches in-stores on September 12th. It contains six eyeshadows. Like the other eyeshadow palettes, it’s more of a miss than a hit, because the eyeshadows are not consistent and I didn’t feel like any of the eyeshadows in this palette were even great. A couple were decent to good, but it feels like a situation where you’re just impressed when one isn’t horrible. Carbon is the worst performer, and how dry and stiff it is makes you want to tear your hair out. Both Carbon and Envisioning Pink were significantly faded after six hours of wear.

Lithe Spirit is described as a “cool cream [with a Satin finish].” It’s a cool-toned, pale beige with a mostly matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, was slightly dry/powdery, but it was workable. This is a repromote. Urban Decay Kinky is more beige. MAC Creamy Bisque is shimmery. MAC All Races is darker, purpler. See comparison swatches.

Envisioning Pink is described as a “mid-tone blue pink [with a Satin finish].” It is a cool-toned, blue-based, medum pink with a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery, so it was somewhat sheer but very prone to sheering out and fading during wear. MAC Feather Pink is lighter. MAC Pin-up Purple is darker. Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet is darker. See comparison swatches.

Violet Impact is described as a “vibrant violet [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a pink-tinted violet purple with a soft, pearly sheen. It had so-so pigmentation, but the texture was a bit dry, so it was stiffer and more difficult to apply and blend on the lid. MAC Power Boosted is similar, slightly pinker. MAC Spoiled Rich is purpler, less shimmery. MAC Push the Edge is purpler, darker. Inglot #439 is much purpler. See comparison swatches.

Showgirl is described as a “dark blue grey [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a medium, blue-based gray with a frosted finish. The texture was somewhat dry, almost flaky, so it didn’t apply as smoothly as I expected for a VP. The color payoff was fairly good, though. This is a repromote. theBalm Matt McDonald is darker. MAC Frozen Blue is lighter. MAC Cyber is lighter, cream. See comparison swatches.

Graphic Style is described as a “deep silver [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a cool-toned, brown-tinged taupe with a soft, pearly finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was fairly smooth. Urban Decay Armor is slightly warmer. Urban Decay Mushroom is warmer, lighter. MAC Dynamic Duo 3 #1 is less shimmery, darker. MAC Dangerously Cuvee is lighter, cream. MAC Moth Brown is less shimmery. MAC Electroplate is lighter. Inglot #434 is grayer, darker. See comparison swatches.

Carbon is described as an intense black [with a Matte finish].” It’s supposed to be a medium-dark black with a matte finish, but because the color payoff and texture are so poor, it’s really just a splotchy black. The texture is so stiff and dry that it is a total pain in the behind to apply and blend. There are plenty of black eyeshadows to choose from. See a few comparison swatches.
