Let's Skate!- A Very Pink Paint Pot

Hi ladies,

Another item from the MAC holiday collection that made its way home was this innocent looking paint pot. I have no idea what attracted me to it. When I swatched it in the shop it looked gorgeous but me getting something pink? Very strange!


The packaging was nice - white and silver to go with the theme. It's just a pot but having a visual break form the classic MAC black was something visually refreshing.

Now, onto the paint pot itself.
It's a super baby pink with lots (and I mean lots) of tiny gold sparkles and even shimmer.

Swatches:

This was a bit tricky to photograph because it's one of those that change with the light and the light reflection. It's a white/gold base but it turns into this icy pink that makes the product very interesting. The more you rub the more the gold sparkles become visible.

In all honesty I think I will never finish this product. It's wouldn't be my go-to paint pot but it's nice to have something this unusual in my collection. I love paint pots. They are such a useful product to have in your collection. Excellent primers and gorgeous colour bases.
For this reason I don't regret the purchase.
How often will i use this? Well...I shall see and tell you.

    Very pretty pink! I still haven't tried any of the MAC paint pots yet. I need to because everyone raves about how great they are. Thanks for the swatch!

    Aww this colour is so cute to pass by! I&#39;m not the biggest fan of pink eyeshadows in general but this one doesn&#39;t translate that much pink on the swatch and I appreciate that ;) Lovely pics as always! xx
