MAC’s Idyllic paint pot

This reminds me of Artifact, without the blackening - just the main color, and the finish. I had initially thought that this color might be closer to a reddish brown than a dark brownish red, but either way works. Unfortunately, this one was a bit like Buried Treasure: patchy application. I don't know if this is typical of frost-finish paint pots or not, but it doesn't seem to happen with my Rubenesque or Bare Study; and both of those are frosts.

I'm glad that I got this color, but I hope MAC solves the patchy-application problem before they release too many more frost paint pots.
