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.

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.
