There was no pressing reason why I had to go out and about looking for another Paint Pot—it’s just that I want to. So this was clearly just a caprice.
I was actually checking out the new releases, and I was initially drawn to Éclair from the Baking Beauties collection but as what seems to be always the case, another one stole the show.
MAC Paint Pot in Indianwood, Php1150
The color is nothing spectacular, it’s a metallic coppery gold—every other eye shadow palette has a color of that sort. Well, I like that it looks a bit rusty and warm, but that isn’t the reason why I like it so much. It’s the texture. You have to believe me when I say this has got to be the smoothest, shiniest and most buttery Paint Pot I have ever come across. The texture and the foil-like brilliance won me over and I knew it was only a matter of time before I head out to get it.
I don’t like to fuss so much about eye makeup—that’s why I like cream eye shadows a lot, it’s rub and go! Anyway, this color is versatile enough as a wash of shimmer for daytime. But I piled it on a bit more in these photos to really bring out the effect I was telling you about. I like to wear it a bit messy and wrinkly to emphasize its high-shine and sparkle—like I applied gold leaf on my lids. (And I like that it gets on my lashes too!)
Obviously, I love this..it might not be the most practical purchase but sometimes you have to give in to your heart’s little desires. I did, and now I have to wear it every chance I get!
What about you—crushing on a Paint Pot lately? Oh, I have so many beauty things in my head right now! Maybe I should do a wish list.
