Let’s Skate

MAC Let’s Skate Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and gold sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a moderately emollient consistency that was prone to sheering out and better applied as a semi-sheer wash of color all over the lid.

This shade worked similarly with brushes as it did with fingertips, and there was more playtime than the matte shades in the line as it was quite a bit more emollient. It was more spreadable with a more even result compared to other shimmers in the line, too. There was creasing visible after 10 hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$23.00/0.17 oz. – $135.29 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented, long-wearing, blendable” and can be used as either an “eye primer” or as a “cream shadow.” The brand says it’s supposed to wear for “24 hours” without flaking or creasing.

The matte finish is most consistent in performance and tended to perform better than the shades with some level of shimmer. The matte shades were lightly creamy to slightly stiffer to work with, and with the stiffer ones, I preferred using a brush to get the initial product out of the jar and then use a fingertip to furiously diffuse the product. The matte shades were typically semi-opaque to opaque in coverage and longer-wearing–12 to 14 hours before showing a bit of fading–but were varying degrees of blendable (related to how creamy the initial texture was).

The shimmery finish, particularly more pearlescent/metallic, were significantly more emollient than the matte shades, and this led to sheerer coverage that often applied unevenly and was difficult to apply with precision. They were best applied in thin layers and built up, but the results were inconsistent and varied a lot between shades. I didn’t find that they applied any better using brushes over fingertips or vice versa. The wear of the shimmer shades was shorter, too, and there was often a bit of creasing within 10 hours of wear.

With 24-hour wear claims like this, I wear for as long as I’m awake, but I don’t want to sleep in makeup, so I extrapolate based on the state of it at 16-hours. (Plus, it is rare that products actually go as long as 12, let alone 16, hours without some sign(s) of wear.) I don’t recall this product having a specific, 24-hour wear claim before (and my prior reviews don’t mention it, just that it was “long-wearing”), so ratings did change for certain shades as a result.

Art Thera-peachy

MAC Art Thera-peachy Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a brighter, peachy coral with moderate, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. The texture was slightly thicker and drier, though there was just enough slip that I could apply and blend out the edges within the first few seconds of wear.

It was easier to use this shade with a fingertip as the warmth seemed to help with diffusing the edges, though a brush was better at getting an even layer of product. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on well for 14 hours before fading a bit and 16 hours when creasing started to show up (faintly at first).

Brick-a-brac

MAC Brick-a-brac Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out decently in the first few seconds. Once the product dried down–which wasn’t long at all!–it was pretty budge-proof.

The texture was denser and a little thicker initially, but it had light creaminess that made it one of the better shades in the range with respect to blendability. It wore well for 14 hours before fading noticeably and 17 hours when there was a touch of creasing.

Babe in Charms

MAC Babe in Charms Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) seemed to have more of a transparent base chocked full of copper and pink micro-sparkle that resulted in a shiny, sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a very emollient consistency that was easy to spread out, but it did not spread out evenly. The easiest way to use this shade was as a wash of sparkle applied with a fingertip, but it was far from being pigmented (as marketed). There were signs of creasing starting to become visible after nine and a half hours of wear.
