I don’t really buy MAC products anymore, but I get gifted with them once in a while. Here’s a paint pot I got from a Christmas gift exchange with my cousins and a lipstick I got from Sarie, who shot an event for MAC and was given store credit.
MAC Paint Pots have quite possibly my favorite cream eyeshadow formula, by a mile. They’re long-lasting on my oily lids (so much so that I don’t need a primer, which is pretty unheard of) and come in a great variety of mostly neutral shades that are easy to wear alone or layer under powder eyeshadows.
I’ve worn Stormy Pink a couple of times, and I love it a lot. It’s actually more purple thank pink, but it’s pretty grey-toned (get it? Stormy?) and is a creamy matte. It’s one of my favorite things to wear these days. Here are a few looks that I’ve already posted here:
FOTD: Mauvelous Chestnuts – Stormy Pink all over the lids topped with bareMinerals Ginger Sugar, Velvet Mauve, and Toasted Espresso.
FOTD: Eye of Newt & the Storm – Stormy Pink on the outer corner.
Predictably, a hit for me. I absolutely love MAC Paint Pots, I have five other shades you can see here. I wish they’d go back to being cruelty-free, if only for these beauties.
Up next is the lipstick in See Sheer. It’s a MAC lustre finish, though I find it quite thicker than the other lustres I have and more on par with the satin lipsticks. It’s a beautiful sheer color that you can build up to a pretty true opacity.
It wears off beautifully and naturally, though it can sink into the lip lines if your lips are too dry. See Sheer is not a color I see a lot of and I don’t know why because I absolutely love it, despite how warm it looks at first. I’m not too big a fan of warm-toned/orange lipsticks and I opt for pinkier corals, but this is definitely a shade I enjoy. I’ve worn this in a post before:
In darker lighting, the color is more intense, and much warmer. Which is why I only want to wear this in places where there’s copious amounts of sunlight.
Anyway, both are great additions to my stash right now. All I have to say here is: MAC, please stop selling in China already!
Both items were gifted to me. MAC tests on animals when required by law.
