MAC Let's Skate Paint Pot Swatches and Review

MAC Let's Skate Paint Pot from the Winter/Holiday Glitter and Ice Collection is my favorite paint pot right now.  I'm so glad I added it to my collection.

Let's Skate is one of 3 limited edition paint pots from the collection.  It comes in its regular glass packaging, but this time with a white top! The color scheme for this collection is white and silver..yum! Like most other paint pots, this can serve as a creaseless shadow or a base.  If you have super oily eyelids, I would suggest a primer.  When I first started using paint pots, they creased on me.  Not sure why.  I would use a base and everything was fine.  After a while, my lids adjusted and I was able to wear them alone.

Upon initial inspection, you think it's another pale, white-ish cream, along the lines of MAC's other paint pots such as Bare Study, Soft Ochre, Painterly, etc., but it's so much more than that!

SURPRISE... It's a soft pale pink with slight iridescence and golden shimmer.  It was totally unexpected.

Here's a swatch that really doesn't do this product justice.  It was really hard to capture its real essence in a photo.  This product ups the glam factor a bit for neutral lovers.  I wore this to quite a few holiday parties. There was no need to add extra glitter and sparkle to my eyes as it was already in the product.  This served as a great way to wear glitter in a more subtle way. 

Giving this paint pot a chance after initial inspection makes me regret not getting the others. It's ok, maybe I'll actually use this up!

I did this look with the paint pot a while back in this post.

Paint pots retail for $18.50.  The Glitter and Ice paint pots are currently SOLD OUT on  :( Try other counters such as Macy's and Nordstrom if you are still looking for these.

Do you have any of the paint pots from the Glitter and Ice collection?  What's your favorite paint pot right now?

OMG, that's such a pretty look! Love it! Believe it or now, some Asian brands have similar paint pots with the same texture. I guess MAC is being influenced by the Asian market after all :)
