MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted purple silver.” It is a mauve-brown with silver sparkle. MAC Dangerous Cuvee is cooler-toned, grayer. Tarte Amazed by Amethyst is a bit darker and less sparkly, plus it is a powder product. MAC Shale is browner and a powder product.

Frozen Violet applied more smoothly and evenly than a few of the other shades, though it was only semi-opaque. I did have to build up the color in really thin, sheer layers, because it would easily clump together if I tried to apply a thicker layer. I noticed a few stray bits of silver sparkle, but it was minor. It wore for twelve hours without fading or creasing. So long as you don’t mind some sheerness to the color, I think this one is worth a look.

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.

  1. YAY–another mauvy shade! I love it!! :D Definitely prettier when it’s swatched heavily though. It’s so darn sheer when it’s blended out!

  2. Mariella

    It looks like nothing but a bit of ambient glitter when it’s sheered out. In the darker swatch, Christine, how did you apply this and would it be possible to wear it as a shadow at that intensity or would that be more as a liner?

    • Hi Mariella!

      I apply one layer very, very heavily – unlikely that you could wear it that thick on the lid – just so you can see the actual color. I was able to get it to be semi-opaque, but not as opaque as the heavy swatch. Definitely you can wear it with more intensity than the really sheered out swatch.

  3. *sigh* Loving the color, but not loving the sheer finish. :0(

  4. Ashley Sarah

    That’s a shame, it looks so pretty in the pot.

  5. Molly

    I’m thinking of getting this one because it compliments my eye color and the sheerness of it is PERFECT because I can still use it for a neutral look! :)

  6. I actually like how sheer you can make it, and I love the color. I think It would be a really pretty everyday shade for ladies with hazel-brown eyes!

  7. This one made me think of “Bad to the bronze” from the Maybelline Color Tattoo line, do you have it so you can tell me if its slightly the same?

  8. Karina

    I just got this!!! This combined with Shale on top makes the most beautiful dirty mauve color. Amazing.
