My Makeup Treasure-Trove : MAC Paint Pots

It's been a long time since I posted a topic in my treasure trove, this post have been ready for quite some time & haven't uploaded it yet. So, here it is. One of my favorite multi-use product are the MAC paint pots. I have included this in My Top 3 Favorite : Multi-Use Products, you can read my post HERE. As you can see, I have grown to love MAC paint pots because it not only adds oomph to my eye shadows but I can wear them without worrying of creasing or fading & it also acts as an eye primer to me even though of my oily lids. 

My Makeup Treasure-Trove : MAC Paint Pots

I have a total of 7 paint pots & still I have more on my wishlists hahaha. 

SOFT OCHRE - A beige shade in yellow tone & in matte finish. Perfect to neutralize dark eye lids.

PAINTERLY - A nude shade with pinkish tone & a matte finish. This is a universal shade fit for every skin tone. Also a perfect shade for an everyday simple look, this can go with just a stand alone on your lids or putting an eye shadow on top.

LET ME POP - A frosted golden peach, this was a limited edition shade & kind of have a love, hate relationship with this. This is so sheer upon application & the shade disappear, it end up just glitter on your lids & it's very sticky. I usually end up applying this on top of my eye shadow by tapping it on top.

VINTAGE SELECTION - This is an old formula, I bought this a while ago. The shade is a brownish peach & a frost finish. It has a sheer application with a little shimmer on my lids.

RUBENESQUE - One of my most favorite paint pot from my treasure-trove. It's a a golden peach in a pearl finish. It gives an added oomph for your shimmer eye shadow on the lids especially on beige, pearl or champagne shades. 

ECLAIR - Oh, this is also my favorite every day use aside from the name which got my attention at first place because of its chocolate name. It can be use alone or you can put an eye shadow on top of it. A perfect for a one eye shade look & it's great for any FOTD. This is also good in balancing your makeup look, a versatile one - for day time or evening look. A light golden chocolate-y shade with a little shimmer on it & in a pearl finish. I love putting an eye shadow taupe shade on top of this like the Catrice single eye shadow in My Copperware Plate. This was released in MAC Baking Beauties Collection, a limited edition, sad to say. This is a lighter shade than MAC Quite Natural but it's a matte finish, a little similar to MAC Constructivist but a little darker & more metallic brown. It's quite similar to Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Rich Mahogany but this one was also limited edition :( Hopefully, MAC would put this in their permanent line like the Let's Skate, Vintage Selection or Dangerous Cuvee - let's cross our fingers.

NUBILE - It's a light peachy beige & in a matte finish. I think it's like an in-between with Painterly & Soft Ochre if ever they have a child hahaha. A great neutral base & a versatile too. A limited edition which is sad, released in MAC Posh Paradise Collection. I use this when I don't feel like using Painterly. 

Here are the swatches of my 7 MAC paint pots, as of now.

My wishlist : Groundwork, Quite Natural & Tailor Grey (see how I am a sucker for anything neutral or taupe?)

So, have you tried MAC paint pots? Love to hear them what you think.

Do I Smell Chocolates???

Last Year, Too Faced had released new eyeshadow palettes that consists of different eye catching shades and when they released a chocolate inspired products in a heartbeat I know I have to get my hands on them. 

Packaging : A chocolate bar replica tin case. (Only if it were real, I'm going to eat it I swear)

Product Name : Too Faced Chocolate Bar

The ingredients of the eyeshadows are written on the sides of the box.

The palette have 16 eyeshadows - 2 of them weighs 2.8 g / .10 oz. each while the rest of the 14 weighs  .95 g / .03 oz. each and consists of matte, satin and shimmer finish. 

A mixture of champagne, browns, pinks and burgundy and blue shades. Each of the eyeshadows are labeled with different chocolate names which are sumptious! Wish the names were printed at the bottom of each eyeshadow though instead on a separate plastic film which there might be a chance of losing or misplacing it.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate -  a nice light bronzer texture with a little sheen on it. It smells chocolate too!
