The Pro Longwear Paint Pot shades were reviewed in the following: Clearwater (sea foam), Layin’ Low (creamy beige), and Stormy Pink (muted grey purple). The products retail for $20.

According to MAC Cosmetics, the paint pots are described as follows:

“A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.”

The paint pots are longwearing and can be worn as a base for eyeshadows or as a quick eyeshadow. When used as a base, the paint pots will allow one’s eyeshadows to stay on for numerous hours and not crease or fade. The paint pots from MAC are outstanding and are available in a variety of shades.

The other two products reviewed are two of the Retro Matte Lipsticks in shades: Flat Out Fabulous (bright plum matte), and Fixed on Drama (rich wine matte). The lipsticks are available for $15. The lipsticks have a matte finish which will allow the wear to last for a number of hours without having to reapply the product. There are numerous shades available.
