Drumroll please for the only MAC Paint Pot I own and can now freely review and talk about! Why? Because MAC has come out with a collection of Pro Longwear Paint Pots that includes this gorgeous shade I'm going to talk about, that once was limited edition! That shade is Let's Skate. I originally bought this with MAC's Glitter and Ice collection! That's why the lid of mine is white. Let's Skate is a a super pale color, pearly pink base color. I was instantly attracted to it because of the color, it was unique and nothing like I had in my collection. In the pot it doesn't look like it'd be very shimmery but holy cow when swatched it's jam packed with mini gold shimmers. Maybe not jam packed, but a considerable amount. Personally I think the shimmers enhance the color and makes it so that you can actually wear this paint pot as an all over shadow and get away with it. It's pretty opaque when you pat it on the lid. I wouldn't recommend using a brush for application because it can pack the glitter all in one place and make it look chunky. The consistency is creamy and easily blend able (it does dry down quickly though, so if you're gonna blend, blend quick!) My only recommendation would be to store these upside down because it really makes a difference and keeps it from drying out!When it's not dry I've been loving using this as a primer! I also love taking some on my pinky and placing this as a gorgeous inner highlight. It brightens the eyes and just leave a that gold shimmer that I'm a huge fan of!
Let's Skate retails for $18.50 at MAC stores, counters, and online. It may seem steep but this (and any of the paint pots) will seriously last you SUCH a long time! I was worried I'd need a back up of this when I bought it but as you can see I've been using it a lot, and not even a dent!
Do you own any MAC Paint Pots? Which are your favorite?
