MAC Genuine Treasure Paint Pot........ a genuine treasure. No, a treasure. Yes, they both sound dumb. Thank goodness I didn't put them in the title, phew.
Oh-My-Bows! This one puts the Posh in MAC Posh Paradise. If you like glitter on your eyes, but can't be bothered about the tedious methods - with Vaseline & clear lip gloss & Duraline, then MAC Genuine Treasure is the answer!
About MAC Paint Pot:
A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.

Described by MAC as 'Reflects Antique Gold', Genuine Treasure is a Paint Pot with glitter. It looks gold + olive + grey-ish....I don't know, I'll let the pics explain it better =)
The Good: Gorgeous, unique, color. You can say it's a wearable gold. |  Doesn't crease or smudge. |  Glitter + cream eyeshadow + primer in one.  |  Good amount in that pot.
The Bad: There's absolutely no room for mistakes with this, coz it dries/sets in seconds. You gotta make sure you blend it really quickly, otherwise it will look patchy. |  Applying it too close to my waterline wasn't such a good idea, coz I have very sensitive eyes.  |  Paint Pots should never be exposed to air for too long, otherwise they'll dry up and become... well, useless.  |  Pricey.
Best applied with ~ Fingers (ring finger, for me) or a stiff flat brush like Sigma E60. If you don't want it to look intense, then a soft blending brush like Sigma E25 will do.

Please excuse my stray eyebrows. I've been so lazy about tweezing =\

Does the glitter come off/get in your eyes? Only if you rub, otherwise it stays put- you don't bother it, it doesn't bother you. For sensitive eyes, it's best not to apply it near your waterline & too close to the tear ducts.

Now I wish MAC would introduce more colors in glittery Paint Pots! Especially purple & green, please.

If you want Genuine Treasure- GET IT NOW! It's LE (Limited Edition)

Price ~ Rs.1350. More than permanent Paint Pots, like Constructivist & Painterly, which cost Rs.1100.
