MAC’s Nubile paint pot

Compared to the other colors in this release, Nubile is pretty tame…but that's one of the reasons that I like it! It was a nice mix with the other, deeper shades; and it was something that had been missing from the regular paint pot lineup for some time. I love Rubenesque, and there hasn't really been a peach creme shade released in a while. There was Perky, but that was a brighter peach-orange, not a peach-nude. Bare Study is more pink than peach. Groundwork is too brown, with not much peach to it at all. Nubile brightens my eye area a little (though not as much as Soft Ochre), but also adds some color.

I wish I could reliably use these on my lids without primer. If I do that, though, I run the risk of creasing after three or four hours (or less, if it's extremely warm.)
