MAC Fancy Frosting Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Fancy Frosting Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Fancy Frosting Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted white.” It’s a silvery white with a sparkly, frosted finish. MAC Virgin Silver is a touch darker. MAC She’s Got Class is more frosted. shu uemura Smoky Velvet #3 is brighter. MAC Angelic is very similar (no glitter). Chanel Fantasme has more sparkle (less metallic).

MAC’s Paint Pot formula is supposed to be “long-wearing,” “highly-pigmented,” and have “seamless coverage without weight or caking.” Fancy Frosting is more like the glittery Paint Pots that MAC has released more frequently in the past couple of years, and so it is nowhere near as smooth, pigmented, or as long-wearing as the creamier (and typically, less shimmery) shades. This one builds to semi-sheer coverage, but you really have to build layer by layer and give each layer time to dry, or else it will turn caky and bunch up on itself. It’s best used as a sheer wash of sparkle. When I wore it, there was some fall out–a few stray sparkles had managed to get loose, though it wasn’t too noticeable. I didn’t see any creasing or fading over an eight hour period.

    I keep buying MAC despite bad reviews here- and it’s fine! Besides, sheer sparkle is the look right now, especially for kids going to Prom. Every year there’s and cupcakes or candy themed collection in April at MAC, and it isn’t targeted at adults. The Prom market is huge for MAC, which is aspiration all make up for high school girls. You can’t get an appointment for weeks, and they sell mountains of this stuff!

    This particular product looks like the eye make up on Glee. That caters to a huge fan girl market! The other obvious use is as a sheer sparkley layer over a tamer cream color for night. That’s not a new idea, and very useful if one just wants to amp it up for evening in a hurry.

  6. Eh, this doesn’t look good at all to me. I thought it was going to be a more white, opaque color.

  7. Disappointed! I wish MAC would have also had a more unique color with this collection.
