MAC Chilled on Ice Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Chilled on Ice Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Chilled on Ice Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted white gold.” It’s a pale peach with a bright golden shimmer-sheen. At certain angles, it almost looks cool-toned. Shades like Maybelline Barely Branded and Estee Lauder Halo both have a warm, golden kind of coloring, but they don’t have the same sheen or base color. Make Up For Ever #101 is the closest dupe I could think of, but it is a powder product, and it is not as metallic.

I reviewed it when it originally came out here, when it was just a regular ol’ Paint Pot. Though the formula is touted as highly-pigmented, Chilled on Ice is semi-opaque even when heavily layered. It has a creamy consistency, but it just sucks and clings to the lids and creates creases and lines in a way that only incredibly dry, frosted finishes can do. The texture looks gritty on, and there was some residual fall out during wear, even though it stayed put for twelve hours overall. There seemed to be some sparkle-gathering in the creases just ever-so-slightly. ¬†Whenever I wear the really sparkly Paint Pots, my eyes seem somewhat irritated after six hours or so, and my feeling is that it’s the result of the sparkles getting into my eyes.

FYI: the ingredient list for the Pro Longwear Paint Pots is the same as for the regular Paint Pots when I compared against the list for Bare Study/Constructivist! It’s off by one ingredient when compared to the Paint Pots from Posh Paradise.

C-
It's not a very buildable color, so it never reaches that "highly-pigmented" claim MAC makes. I also experienced fall out during wear and some slight creasing.

    Oh god, beautiful colour but an awful application!

    I got this when it came out with some collection a few years ago. it looked so pretty in the pot but the pigmentation sucks. now it’s basically all dried up. this is why I hate paint pots!

    It’s so sad that the payoff and texture of this one is crummy because this is lovely in the pot and in the swatch photo. :(

    Hi Christine, how close is this from let’s skate paint pot.

  6. i’m going to go against the grain here and say that i actually want it because it’s somewhat sheer. it looks like something that could work better as an inner corner highlight as opposed to an all over eye base. not a big fan of the fall out though…

    wow i’m so happy that they repromoted this! honestly this is one of my favorite paint pots of all time! it’s glittery and oh so pretty and a cool toned gold which i adore. really lovely underneath sable! without fail i’ve always been complemented on my eyes when i wear these two together! i’ve been savoring the one i bought from the cham pale collection because i never wanted to run out! i’m so ecstatic that something i loved so much is now permanent! thanks for the update christine!
