MAC Perky, Camel Coat, Stormy Pink Pro Longwear Paint Pots

Here is the next set of three MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots ($20.00 for 0.17 oz.) that have been added to the permanent range of shades available. Shades I’ve covered previously can be found here: Antique Diamond, Blackground, and Let’s Skate. You can also view all of the Pro Longwear Paint Pots I’ve ever reviewed here (as well as read what readers are saying!).  Perky was the only one that didn’t wear well on me, but it had only slight creasing that wasn’t too noticeable from afar. Camel Coat is similar in color to light-medium skin tones, so it may not show up well (as a color) for some complexions, so it might work better as a base or to conceal/blank out the lid.  Stormy Pink was a more interesting shade that I wasn’t able to think of a lot of dupes for–the muted, gray-ish quality of the color seemed to be what made it hard to find similar shades.

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three shades of lipstick; Candy Yum Yum and Violetta are both permanent shades, while Moxie is a repromote of an older, discontinued shade (that was also brought back last fall with By Request). The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.

NARS Interstellar, Mozambique, Black Valley Eye Paints

NARS Interstellar Eye Paint ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “silver.” It’s a bright, metallic silver. It had fairly good color payoff, but it was more prone to sheering out than some of the other shades. This is one of the less unique shades in the range, and you can find many silver eyeliners/cream eyeshadows on the market. Maybelline Cool Crush is slightly cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Chrome is similar. Urban Decay Cuff is darker. Maybelline Silver Strike is similar. MAC Tundra is darker. Buxom Chihuahua is similar. See comparison swatches.

NARS Iskandar, Mesopotamia, Snake Eyes Eye Paints

NARS Eye Paints ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, highly-pigmented gel formula that can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeliner. The consistency is very creamy, and just about every single shade I tried was incredibly pigmented. These dry down very, very quickly, so you have to work fast, and they take some work to blend with each other as a result. Using one or two isn’t so bad, but add a third into the mix, and it can be troublesome. The edges need to be blended almost immediately, or else layered with a similar-colored eyeshadow to help diffuse the drier edge. Yesterday, I wore these primarily as eyeshadows (but also two as eyeliner on the lower lash line) over bare lids. I experienced very slight creasing after seven hours of wear as well as some slight fading, which worsened and was noticeable after eight and a half hours of wear. As an eyeliner, they lasted better and did not fade or migrate over a nine hour period.
