MAC Contemplative State is a very warm-toned, light brown with a matte finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $23.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
MAC Contemplative State Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lid and blended out without too much trouble--though the quick-drying formula meant I had to work very quickly before the blending window slammed shut!
The texture was lightly creamy, thicker in the jar but felt lightweight and flexible on my lid. There was a bit of creasing that started after 15 hours of wear, though it worsened at a slow pace.

A highly pigmented, long-wearing, blendable eye primer and/or cream shadow – M·A·C Pro Longwear Paint Pot goes on creamy and dries to an intense, vibrant finish that lasts for 24 hours. The innovative second skin-like creamy shadow formula blends smoothly over lids and creates seamless, buildable coverage without looking heavy or cakey. Its superior colour purity stays true and will not streak or crease. Pro Longwear Paint Pot can be mixed with other products, like M·A·C shadows and liners.
