MAC Paint Pot Swatches & Nude Lippie Swatches


I love paint pots! They really last long and enhance the color of eyeshadows as they make a great base! So I thought id post some swatches of all the paint pots I have as well as nude lippie swatches since I often get questions on nude lippies!

i love paint pots too! if you dont already have it.. get RUBENESQUE. its the best paint pot (in my opinion!) try greenstroked too :) sometimes i just wear them as eyeshadows and im good to go! :D

Joey said...

I've been waiting for this post! Haha. I'm still looking for the perfect nude lipstick/gloss ): Maybe I'll try myth or circe next!

You have quite the paint pot collection! I'm thinking of picking some more up.. otherworldly looks gorgeous.

Thanks Nessa,

Always lookin for a good nude lippy! And I'm on a paint pot kick at the moment too, i need to scoop me up some.

oh my goodness nessa!!! Right timing, I am just wondering how would paint pots look like when swatched ALL TOGETHER! I've always thought of getting Painterly and Soft Ochre first, but I have to choose which one first, based on your photo I would probably go for Soft Ochre because of the yellow tone! thanks so much on these! so helpful!!!! SUPER!

OMG!! I'm so pissed I passed on Lay'Low

Gee said...

Great swatches!!! Makes me want to buy more stuff lol

too bad i didnt pick up girl friendly and layin low when i had a chance :(

constructivist and moss scape are on the list!

Jenna said...

About what color (in MAC-speak) is your hand? I can't see myself wearing MAC Myth! It'd probably make me look like I have no lips at all! (I'm NC30-35.)

Elle said...

AHhh!!! Nude Lippys!!!! LOVE them all
The paintpots look so tempting ><

Pretty N Pink said...

I have a question that may be a silly one, do you always use your fingers to apply these or would you use a brush as well? For example, if you just wanted to wear one as eyeshadow and not a base (like moss scape), would you still use your fingers? I've never used a paint pot but these swatches have me thinking! :)

Vanessa said...

Jenna I am also an NC30-35 and Myth looks great as a lip base (like MAC's lip erase), you can always use a lipliner to spice things up.

Vanessa said...

Hi PRETTY N PINK- Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! I use a concealer brush (Synthetic) to apply the paint pots as they are creamy, I rarely use my fingers since I have long nails its harder to apply with my fingers, but I use a brush to give me better control.

all those swatches of p/p making me want more p/p! I really like Painterly, it's because of you i bought it back like 6 months ago! haha.

missxxmai said...

ah! this is LOVE =)

i remember when i was going in one day for cash flow and some lady had just walked out with the last one!!

i have about 7 paint pots and i LOVE them! i just got back from getting "painterly" and "rubenesque". i think i'm going to go back and get "girl friendly" & "fresco rose"!

those nude lippies are gorgeous! i really like the l/s in "sparks can fly".

nai nai said...

moss scape... WOW i so want it now. thanks for the swatches it helps a lot!

Jenna said...

Thanks, Vanessa! And thanks so much for the swatches! Now, if I can just get over my fear of brownish lip colors... I really can't see myself wearing Honeymoon!
