Review: MAC Let's Skate Paint Pot

Hi, lovelies! Sorry if this seems repetitive, considering I posted about another MAC Paint Pot only a few days ago (Soft Ochre). Let's Skate is part of the new (and permanent!!) line of Pro Longwear Paint Pots from MAC. I wanted Let's Skate since it was first released with the MAC Glitter & Ice holiday collection back in 2011. I literally squealed when I read Let's Skate would be coming back. Sounds silly but I know I'm not the only one that gets super excited about makeup!
Color
Let's Skate is what I would call a champagne pink. It's very light, but the pink is definitely noticeable in person. It has really fine multicolored glitter (mostly gold and white). It's not 100% opaque, but it's definitely pigmented. On the eyes the glitter reflects a lot of light (I wouldn't call it subtle).
Formula
It feels very creamy and blends easily. You can tell a difference in terms of texture compared to a matte Paint Pot, but it doesn't feel gritty at all. The shimmer is very fine. I find Paint Pots set quickly so try to work fast (one eye at a time).
Longevity
It lasts a long time and wears well on its own. If used as a base, it improves the staying power of any eyeshadow. Even though it wears really well, I don't feel like it's anything amazing (like the Maybelline Color Tattoos) to justify the "Longwear" label.
Overall: I adore this Paint Pot. It was everything I was hoping it would be. I've actually been using this more than Soft Ochre. I bought Soft Ochre to use as a base and never alone, but Let's Skate gives me a lot of versatility. It will lighten, brighten, and add shimmer to any eyeshadow you put over it. Plus, it looks gorgeous on its own and the name is really cute. I definitely recommend it!

  14. I like the colour range of the MAC paint pots but I find the consistency to be too thick and really dry! :( xxxx

  15. I literally just came back from shopping and when I went into MAC to check out their new paintpots, lets skate' was the shade that stood out to me the most. I tend to go for quite natural colours and I have been a big fan of soft ochre myself :) this colour is so nice and I really want to add this to my collection although I am trying hard to use up some of my products first before buying anymore stuff!

  21. All your MAC reviews make me curious about the brand, but it's really out of my budget so for now I guess I'll have to settle for just reading about their products ^^ Great post, very well written product description : ) xx

  22. Wow, this is gorgeous! Love the shimmer and subtle pink tint. I actually don't own any Paint Pots, but may have to track this one down :)

  25. The colour is gorgeous, I should have swatched it when I was in a mac store today! I have a few paint pots already (Groundwork, Painterly and Bare Study), do you think it's different enough from Bare Study to be worth buying? xx


    Almost Delightful

    1. Hmm, in my opinion you could own both and not feel like you have 2 of the same. Bare Study is metallic and has no pink while Let's Skate has noticeable glitter and a pink undertone. xx

  32. I am a huge fan of MAC paint pots - Painterly being my favorite. Boring I know but it is the pefect base for me. Let's Skate looks like a pretty pearl. I like how it changes the MUG shadow you showcased. It gave it dimension.

  33. This is such a gorgeous colour - I love the shimmer! I have a paint pot in Bare Study which really helps my eyeshadows last a lot longer, might have to give this one a try, would be rude not to as it's so pretty ;) x

  35. This is such a gorgeous colour! I was admiring Rubenesque the other day but this is so much more wearable. Never tried a Paint Pot before, but I really should sometime soon. :) xx

  36. What a great combo! I was just thinking about Let's Skate. I bought it a while back during it's holiday appearance but I think now it's part of MAC's newest longwear paint pot. Wish I knew where it was as you just reminded how gorgeous it is. :)

  37. Such a lovely shade, I love mac paint pots! I need to add more to my collection :-)
