If you follow my blog, you may have seen my post about MAC’s Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Groundwork which I have been loving this fall. When I was in Toronto recently, I had a looooong wait in Pearson airport, so I did what any normal, makeup obsessed person would do and headed straight to MAC to swatch some Paint Pots. I love a MAC in an airport – what an amazing idea! There were several gorgeous Paint Pots I liked. Two were not in stock – Camel Coat and Tailor Grey (both in the land of matte, taupey goodness). The shade they did have in stock was Frozen Violet.
Frozen Violet is a beautiful icy, purpley-taupe with subtle silver shimmer. It has a really unique finish very different from a powder shadow. I love it on its own for sort of a “lived-in” smokey eye look that is actually pretty wearable for daytime. I haven’t been using an eye shadow primer with it and I find it wears well all-day with no creasing, like Groundwork. I have also topped it with MAC Shale, one of my fav MAC eye shadows, and (allegedly) worn by Kate Middleton.
Tragically, as I was composing this post, I checked the MAC Canada site, and neither Frozen Violet, Camel Coat nor Tailor Grey are available online! I was really bummed, because I’d planned on ordering Camel Coat and Tailor Grey. I don’t know if that means these shades are discontinued? I really hope not. They may still be available in-store at some locations, like Frozen Violet was, although that doesn’t help me so much because there is no MAC store in my entire province 😦
Are you a fan of the MAC Paint Pots? What’s your fav shade?
Thanks so much for reading 🙂
