I really wanted to try the MAC Parrot eyeshadow but since it is discontinued I decided to look on the MAC site and I was recommended the Delft paint pot as a replacement for Parrot. The Delft paint pot is a turquoise blue and it is very pretty. I use this paint pot under my blue and turquoise eyeshadows and it really makes them pop. The Delft paint pot can also be used alone because it is such a beautiful color. I don't know if it is exactly like MAC Parrot since I never had the chance to try that eyeshadow. I would definitely recommend this paint pot to anyone who has turquoise and blue eyeshadows in their makeup stash.

I thought I was incredibly lucky to score this at my local CCO , but after using it, I wish I hadn't! Delft is a deep, golden based turquoise that applies chunky & not nearly as pretty as it looks in the pot. When used simply as a base, it works some wonders. It makes MAC's Teal pigment look almost metallic which is great for a gradient or artsy look. I felt I had to dig my brush into this to get anything onto my lid.

Wow wow wow!I love this paint pot, granted I love all the MAC paint pots. But this is my fav. Especially in the summer, with my tan and a white dress and this beauty on my eyes I was like goddess. haha okay maybe not goddess.... but this shade has a god like quality to it.I love to wear it with Black Tied over it at night. I even wore this to the beach! It looks especially amazing with brown eyes.I also bought Sea Me shade stick but Delft is far better for applying. Just make sure you use a correct brush.

I love Paint Pots! When I found this color at CCS and was pleased that it was a good price. The color is a beautiful deep teal with gold flecks and looks fab paired a charcoal gray shadow for a smokey eye. I think this one will last awhile since I only use it when I go out, but I would repurchase this color again if I ever ran out!

Gorgeous peacock blue! This is a lovely shade that has haunted me since I laid eyes (no pun intended) on it and very true to the Paint Pot line. I lucked out and found this at a CCO for about $12, so I *had* to have it.The color is lovely. It's a deep teal blue that really enhances shadows in the same family (Shimmermoss, Clarity) but looks good on its own as well. It's a little much for weekday wear (I'm in a conservative field), but is rather a fun color that I use on weekends/nights--occasionally I'll wear it to work, but in moderation. It's definitely on the warm side of blue, so it's not my favorite color on me (I'm NW20), but I can still pull it off.The texture is pretty similar to other PPs, but I have noticed it creases a little on me. That's no problem when I apply it over UDPP, though.Honestly, for someone who knows and loves PPs this is worth a look, but those looking to dive into the PP line should probably stick to neutrals like Painterly or Bare Study before trying this one. I'm glad I found it at the CCO, and in the unlikely event I finish this (you get a lot of product in that pot!), I would repurchase it.

Love this paint pot! Though it does tend to go on unevenly, with a little owrk it is fab as a base. I can use all of my blue/turquise, etc shadows with gorgeous results. I've worn it with MAC prose and fancy, zonk bleu, and a blue HIP duo. Each time, I was given multiple compliments!

While this is a gorgeous shade (similar to peacock feathers), I cannot get over how DRY the texture is! Does anyone else have this problem? I don't know if it's just my particular paint pot, but I find my Delft is hard to blend and quite dry. Rubenesque never gives me this problem *sigh* It sucks because I really LOVE this color. SEA ME shadestick is pretty much an exact dupe, though, so you may have better luck with that one.

Love this beautiful peacock-teal shade!!! I wore it to work today and much to my surprise, it looks lovely even in broad daylight...I started with moisturized lids, dabbed on Paint Pot/Bare Study from lashline to browbone, dabbed on Delft from lashline to slightly above the crease and smoothed it out with Nylon.. Then I added some gold eyeliner to the inner corner of my eyes and shimmery brown pencil eyeliner to my lower lashline and inner rim for a little more drama...the end result: gorgeous! I'm currently at my desk at work researching more techniques on how to apply Paint Pot shades lol!!

My love for paint pots keep growing and growing. I find myself continually turning to them because of the their spreading/building consistency and staying power. Delft is beyond gorgeous: deep teal with gold pearl. I tend to prefer products with gold undertones or flecks because I think they complement my skin tone very well. I am an NC40, Asian tanned, with very dark brown hair and eyes. Delft does a great job of drawing attention to my eye color and really making them pop. It is a little too dramatic for daytime, so to dress it down I often use it as an eyeliner or lightly smudge it on my lower lid. But when the occasion arises, I definitely turn this beautiful pot for a night-time look and I get soooo many compliments. The only downside to paint pots is their tendency to dry out from frequent air exposure. To combat that, I scoop them into sample jars and it makes the product last a lot longer.
