Paint Pot HORROR!

I failed to mention in my previous dribble and babble post (Click!) about MAC Fafi that I purchased Cash Flow Paint Pot!

All you evil, evil people convinced me I was doing an injustice to MAC by not purchasing at least one paint pot!

Staring at the array of paint pots on display with the Fafi goodies I heard each of you in the back of my head chanting and urging me to buy all six (god I’m so sick!) but I decided that I don’t like them and I stuck to my guns on that however, somehow, someway Cash Flow did end up in my cart and I hold each of you accountable!

It’s a rather nice shade though isn’t it?


Have it?
Love it?

Tell the Muse!

    Hey Musey! I missed ya! how have you been? i seen you did some FAFI shopping. I skipped out on this entire collection, b/c i’m not a bright bold color type of gal, but i did want to get the cash flow paint pot and guess what? THEY RAN OUT! argh!

    MAC paint pot is definitely one of my HG. UDPP is ok, but I like how I can get a base color and just add some liner and done. I have bare study as the only PP i own, but I definitely want to buy more. I’ll see if i can bump into any Cash Flow PP in some random shop.

    Do a review and let us know!

    That paint pot looks so pretty, i will definitely need to check that out 😀

  • nilla cookie

    I KNEW you’d cave, Muse!! mwahahaha!

    Just try it out, I think you might really like it. I hear a lot of folks apply with their fingers, you can play face paint with it and it’ll be beautiful!

    hey muse!

    cash flow is SO pretty! i couldn’t stop myself from going to the MAC store yesterday and ended up picking up the fashion frenzy blush and perky paint pot (which i’m in love with) to go with my other fafi items.

    i also stopped by bergdorf and saw that they carry paul & joe so i got myself their moisturizing compact foundation which has the presttiest pink case. now i feel so pretty but oh so broke :(.

    I missed you more! I’m great 🙂

    UGH I’m sorry they ran out 🙁 But it’s up and available online I think! Free Shipping with code SLIMSHINE 😉

    I’m so shocked everyone loves the PP’s so much! I just can’t love them! I have to use them more often and maybe they will grow on me! I have about 3-5? I think? And I don’t make any use out of ’em! poo on me!

    I missed you love! Don’t be a stranger! Loving your blog lately! Really enjoyed the interested surgery post!

    I comment often but I dont think it goes through for some reason!?!??!

    Love ya!

  • the Muse

    I didn’t want to come to the dark side Lilan! You forced me!

    I’m going to play tomorrow 😉 weeheee!

  • the Muse

    Hey Jen!

    Which one is perky? Is that the pink? How is it 😉

    I love the blush! So pretty!

    Nice haul of goodies 🙂 Do we get an FOTD maybe!?!?!??!

    LOL! makeup has a way with making us all broke..sigh…!!!!!!!

    why can’t cosmetics grow on trees?


  • Debbie

    These LE paint pots were much nicer then the ones from the mcqueen collection.

    I got all six

  • Ann the Queen

    sigh.. talking about paintpots.. i just gotten another paintpot! that makes the 6th in just 3 weeks!

    i’m also going crazy about the slimshines! gawd.. they’re such HG material!

    love ya!

  • Hana

    I went to purchase my first MAC products last Friday thanks to all the beauty blogs I read. XD I ended up with a lipglass and the Perky paint pot from the Fafi collection. The SA picked that one out, and it turns out I love it. It makes a really nice base and it looks nice when I’m in a hurry and just want to put something on that will last. I really want the green one from the Fafi collection too, but I think it won’t work with my greenish eyes. ;_;

  • Jennifer

    perky is the peachy/pink one. the reason i love the paint pots so much is that they make absolutely amazing eyeshadow bases. i have really oily eyelids so i can have a beautiful eyeshadow look in the morning, but by 2-3 hours later my greasies will have sucked all the color into my crease and there’ll be no color left. the paint pots make my eyeshadows look brighter and they stay all day-they’re an absolute must for me.

  • the Muse

    hi debbie!

    Indeed and much more of a selection this time too!

    I only got one so far but I’m sorting wanting the pink but I doubt I’ll probably skip 😉

    Thanks for the comment!

  • the Muse

    Hi Ann!

    LOL! Everyone but me is loving the PP’s! I feel left out 🙂

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE slimshines! Lovey-Dovey is HG for me totally! That color is amazing!

    Love ya back!

  • the Muse

    Hi Hana!

    Yay! Sounds a nice haul of goodies! As you may have noticed I haven’t given too much love to the PP’s! They just don’t work well for me 😛 But definately a good idea for a quick makeup look 😉

    I think the aqua pp would go great with green eyes! Maybe try it in store before purchasing 🙂

    Glad you’re happy with your MAC! The blogsphere wishes to convert the world to the evils of MAC 😉

  • the Muse

    Hey Jen!

    I kinda want perky! I normally use shadesticks or paints for a base occasionally but I just can’t feel the same love with PP’s!

    aww 🙁 my sis experiences same problem! Oily lids! She powders up quite a bit prior to application!

    I’m amazed how many people ADORE pp’s! I just can’t feel the love for ’em 😛

    Hey honey, sorry I disappeared for ages… my work has been taking a toil on me lately BUT I still read ur blog regularly! =D

    Anyways, I bought lots of stuff from MAC and oh god… I bought 3 paintpots out of the 6. I felt that it was a terribly astonishing display of my willpower because I was expecting myself to walk out with all 6.

    I’m pretty much new to paintpots because I dont really like to use creamy stuff which are in a pot. It seems as though the bacteria proliferates faster in cream cosmetics so I use pigments and powder shadows more often while I just look at my brand new paint pots. However with the new colours from Fafi, I really cannot control! I bought Cashflow, Perky and Girl Friendly and they are all sooooo beautiful!!! Cashflow is gorgeous and is a perfect base for my gold shadows, Girl Friendly is a perfect base for my pink and purple shadows while Perky just perks my up!!! I LOVE THEM! You really should have gotten Perky! I’m still contemplating whether my decision to not get Rollickin, Layin Low and Nice Vice is right… Hmmm… any advice on that?

  • eikcaj

    i dont understand how people CAN’T love them (PPs) and what does HG mean? i’m a little lost w/ these acronyms heh.

    i expected more from the rollickin (aqua-colored FAFI PP) but i didnt know how wonderful cashflow was until i swatched it at home. it looked good in the pot but it looked even better on me! (or on you or well yea you know what i mean)

    and i totally agree with hana. i was excited to use some products from the fafi line but i was in a rush that morning but i got to use a paint pot (layin low) and couldnt figure out what to put over it so i just paired it with liner. let’s just say i got quite a few compliments later that day :]

  • the Muse

    Hey Cosine!

    You were missed!!!!! Work has ben dragging me down too sincerely 🙁 ugh!

    Thanks for always stopping by and saying hey 😉

    I’m amazed how much everyone adores the PP’s! I just can’t feel the love!

    I must admit that’s one of my problems too. germs and bacteria.

    I use pigments and powder way more often then cream and I’m a self described hater of creams! But I’ve been kinda sorta digging creams lately!

    Cashflow is gorgeous! I kinda sorta feel a lem for GF and Perky but I know I won’t make proper use of ’em! I have to know when to say no lol!

    You know I’m going to say GET THEM ALL!!!!!!!! when they are gone they are gone and later on we’ll lem them so hard we’ll go on email and pay double so might as well get them now when they are cheap 😉


    Love ya!
    Good to see you here, you were missed!

  • the Muse

    hi eikcaj!

    HG means Holy Grail 🙂 As in “my holy grail eyeshadow” something someone can’t live without 😉

    Cash Flow i originally skipped but came back too because it was just calling me! Surprised to hear that the aqua color wasn’t so fab. It looked good swatched on my arm but I skipped it in the end!

    I think the simplicity of PP’s and complex ways you can use them definately holds appeal! I still can’t totally love them but they definately have been growing on me 😉

    Thanks for the comment!
