Like Vanessa Williams in 1991, I saved the best for last. 🙂 This Paint Pot really is a genuine MAC Philip Treacy treasure.
Like, if you were chasing a rainbow astride a teal pegasus pony with a rainbow mane high up in the pretty blue sky surrounded by pink clouds, at the end of the rainbow, you’d find Genuine Treasure…instead of a black cauldron filled with gold, although that would also be extremely convenient and nice.
Really, though, this Paint Pot is more like a glitter top coat, and I call it that because pigment-wise, it’s actually pretty sheer.
I built it up in the swatch below so you could get a better feel for the color, but when you apply it to skin, what you get is mostly glitter.
You can wear it on top of other eye products, or wear it on bare lids, which is what I did last Sunday (because who doesn’t like to wear a little glitter on a Sunday sometimes?). I applied it on my bare lids, added a couple coats of mascara, and then went furniture shopping and beignet eating. It was fun.
Genuine Treasure is handy if you need/want to get party ready, and you don’t have a ton of time between work and the shindig.
As a Paint Pot, which are among the longest-wearing things in the MAC eye makeup stable, it has a cream formula. You just twist off the little top and apply with either an eyeshadow brush or fingers (for this one, I recommend fingers).

I think it’s one of the true gems in the MAC Philip Treacy collection.
In other news…homegirl, I am tired!
But we made it. We made it to the end of the week, and you did a great job. 🙂
I hope you have an absolutely fabulous Friday, my friend. I’m looking forward to getting my bangs trimmed a little later, but I haven’t even been doing my hair lately, so I don’t know what I’m thinking… It’s probably mostly an excuse to get out of the house.
