P for Potent

MAC P for Potent Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff paired with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was smooth and finely-milled with good adhesion to bare skin. The product applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. There was visible fading after eight hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. - $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "pillow-soft, matte colour" that is "highly blendable" with "unbelievable slip" that has "stay-true colour" that doesn't fade, crease, or dry out the lids. The majority of the shades were pigmented, though a few were more semi-opaque and buildable.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly powdery in the pan--softer and more yielding than the standard MAC matte eyeshadow--but had more glide for better adhesion and blendability on bare skin. The eyeshadows stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

They're thinner and a bit more powdery than the long-discontinued Matte2 formula, though it was more like that finish than the current, matte finish in the brand's permament range of eyeshadows. They were easier and more forgiving to work with than a lot of MAC's eyeshadows, so they were improved and a nice addition to the brand's range (they're also available as pan-only for less).

A Little Tamed

MAC A Little Tamed Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a vivid, darker coral-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and incredibly finely-milled with a touch of powderiness in the pan, but it blended out well and didn’t sheer out too quickly. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Good Jeans

MAC Good Jeans Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dusty, medium blue with neutral-to-warm undertones (it leaned a bit greenish) paired with a matte finish. The consistency was lightly powdery, which made it prone to sheering out when applied, so I’d recommend using it over an eyeshadow primer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that stayed on decently for seven and a half hours on me.

These Bags are Designer

MAC These Bags are Designer Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a darker yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well, though it was hard to build up without using an eyeshadow primer underneath. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and very smooth without being too powdery. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

These are generally reasonably good quality from MAC – although the Good Jeans shade looks quite patchy and dry. The medium dark plum shade looks very pretty.

Have a few dupes for P For Potent, so as much as I like it, I’m passing.
Strangely, the one I’m most tempted to get is These Bags Are Designer. I always wear primer, so that’s not an issue. But it would go so incredibly well with my Uninterrupted!

Really, MAC, $20 for a single eye shadow??
Incredible when one can get a decent Palette for easily double that price!!
As an eyeshadow junkie, I have tons of higher end shadows and would never pay that much for one, unless it sings and dances.
Honestly.
