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.
