MAC Posh Paradise

15 Sep

MAC’s second new collection of awesomeness has hit the stores! Of course, I couldn’t resist. Here’s what I bought:

  • Nubile Paint Pot – Neutral peach shade. Reminds me of Painterly, but Painterly is a bit more pink than peach. I absolutely love this under a neutral shimmer with a heavy black line – and, like any paint pot, it lasts all day long.
  • Hyperviolet Paint Pot – This is quite a unique paint pot shade. It’s matte purple, and very, very dark. If you pick this one up (and I highly recommend that you do), spend some time playing with it. Here’s what I got when I did:
 L-R: Sketch, Star Violet, Twinks, 100 Strokes

You can see how the colours really pop (particularly the purple tones in Star Violet). Very fun to play with!

  • Idyllic Paint Pot – This reminds me a little of Artifact Paint Pot, but with more of a rusty red tone than purpled burgundy.
  • Rare Exotic Mattene – True fuschia – this is not for the faint at heart! I love this colour, but you really get noticed in it!
  • Deliciously Forbidden Mattene – This is a muted dusty dark pink that can work for daytime or can be applied with a heavier hand in the evening. Note: Though Mattenes are supposed to be less drying than regular matte lipsticks, they are still quite drying. I found that my lips got pretty flaky and application became uneven after a few re-applications. If you have trouble with dry lips, you might want to stick with more of a creme finish.

There were so many beautiful things, and I had trouble keeping to just these things. Here’s what the whole collection looks like:

Ratings:

Packaging: 5/5
Product quality: 5/5
Worth the price? Yep.
Would I purchase again? I bought a backup of Nubile and I’m certain I’d eventually collect all of the Paint Pots were they permanent!

Cruelty-Free? Yes – appears on PETA’s Cruelty-Free list.

Where to find it: MAC in store and online.
