MAC’s Pure Creation paint pot

Yes, you read that description right. There's a dark undertone to this color, but the top notes are pure sapphire blue. It's gorgeous!! I don't know if I can get away with using it as an all-over shade, even if I use a blending shade atop it. I can use it as a liner and an inner-vee shade, and it looks wonderful. Bright without being garish (though it's right on the borderline), with the darker tone to give it a little bit of weight.

This paint pot was similar in texture to other paint pots I have and use frequently, including Rubenesque and Bare Study. The fact that this is a frost finish didn't seem to give me the same kind of problems that I encountered with Treasure Hunt.
