Smokey Eyes using 'Geniune Treasure' Paint Pot - Picture Tutorial

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to 100th post on my blog. On this occasion, I want to THANK YOU for all your support and patience. I wish to blog more and hope that your support continues. With this 100th post I want to enhance connectivity with you all and what can be better than Twitter. Hope to see you more often on Twitter.  My Twitter ID is @makeupbyeesha.

MAC recently released it Post Paradise Collection in India which, has 8 new paint pots. Unbelievable, isn't it? I always get tempted with Paint Pots, because, they have awesome pigmentation and they can be used either on their own or as base underneath eyeshadows.

I picked up 3 paint pots from this collection - Genuine Treasure, Idyllic and Half Wild. Genuine Treasure being most gorgeous and attention seeking shade - antiqued bronze full of chunky gold glitter. I have read a lot of people saying this as the paint pot version of MAC's Antiqued Gold Glitter Pigment. I don't have the pigment, so can't say much about it. But the shade is to die for and is dead gorgeous and is awesome for smokey eyes. It would look best when used on it's own. Underneath the eyeshadow, it's beauty would be overshadowed with the eyeshadow shade.

Price: INR 1350/- (MAC have recently increased their prices)

Here are the pictures, swatches and make-up look using this paint pot.
