This is what I left with….
Lip Tars! They were $14.00 at IMATS so I stocked up.
– Memento: light dusty pink
– Beta: (blindingly) bright orange.
– Stalker: Watermelon red
– NSFW: True red with a very slight brown base.
From the MAC Pro store-
MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in NC15/NW20 (I was so happy to nab this because I missed getting it with the Pret A Papier collection, and the nearest MAC Pro store was a huge pain to get to).
Quite Natural Paint Pot: I bought this at IMATS because I was under the impression that it was a Pro product because of a conversation I had at a MAC counter a fortnight before this.
[at the MAC counter at Myer]
me: Do you stock Quite Natural paint pot?
MAC sales assistant: you mean, Painterly paint pot? (clearly thinking I had said ‘do you stock a quite natural p/p)
me: um.. no, I’m after Quite Natural Paint Pot.
MAC sales assistant: yes, Painterly gives a very natural look (looking at me like I’m deaf or possibly intellectually disabled)
me: Oh, no sorry I meant the actual Paint Pot called ‘Quite Natural’. I can’t see it on the display, is it a Pro product?
MAC sales assistant: It’s probably Pro or part of a previous limited edition collection.
Anyhow, turns out that it’s not a Pro product at all and I should have bought it from the MAC online store from the US like I normally do.

I love cream eyeshadows and cream blushes. So much. I’m not sure what it is, but they are infinitely more fun to use than their pressed powder counterparts- perhaps it’s because it’s like very expensive finger painting?
Either way, I adore my little collection of MAC Paint Pots and thought I would swatch them for you. I’m not going into too much detail here but if you want a full review, see my post on Blackground Paint Pot. All four have quite similar texture and performance. I love using them as an eyeshadow base to create depth and intensity, and to increase the wear time of eye shadows.
Price: 17 USD ( US rrp) 35 AUD (Australia RRP)
Availability: MAC counters worldwide.
 Jerry from Silhouette Screams blog has pointed out in the comments that Artifact Paint Pot is discontinued. It’s a sad day for eye shadows.
Quite Natural Paint Pot – Matte medium brown. It is my only completely matte shade out of the four, and has the best staying power of all of them (really nothing short of amazing).
Artifact Paint Pot- Plummy cranberry with a satin finish.
Constructivist Paint Pot- Dark bronzey brown with a satin finish.
Blackground Paint Pot- Dark grey first layer, becomes black with second. Satin finish. I’ve reviewed Blackground in detail here.
