MAC Eclair Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Eclair Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “light chocolate with gold pearl.” It’s a warm-toned, bronzy brown with copper and bronze shimmer. MAC Indianwood is more golden, less red-toned. Chanel Intuition is more frosted and a powder product. MAC Mulch is slightly less red-toned and a powder eyeshadow. Giorgio Armani #28 is browner. Benefit Dandy Brandy is less warm-toned and a powder eyeshadow.
Now, THIS is the kind of shade that embodies what made MAC Paint Pots famous in the first place. Eclair is creamy without being too thin or too thick–creamy without being slick, slippery, or so creamy that the color creases before it has a chance to set. It sets quickly, but it has just enough give to be blendable along the edges. The color payoff is top notch with full color coverage–and if you really want subtler color, apply very little and blend with a fluffy brush or fingertip (which tends to be better, as the warmth of your finger keeps the product more movable). It lasted ten hours without creasing or fading (no primer).
