LE, Sept 2011, Posh Paradise Collection
Product - Light peachy-nude with "frost" - though IMO it's more of a satin finish. Soft, smooth, creamy texture. A light layer will set quickly, so blend as you go. Definitely budgeproof, even on my oily-prone lids. I prefer applying with a wide, flat synthetic e/s brush with rounded head. I've been using Soft Ochre as a base, and wasn't sure if the peachy tone of Nubile would work for me - I'm AAB/NC25 with strong yellow undertones. Nubile leaves just a hint of peach-nude when I blend it down and leaves a mostly-matte-with-hint-of-pearl finish. Nubile may be a better base color match for me than Soft Ochre (which is a shade or two too light), and it's perfect for evening out my lid color if I choose to wear it alone. As a base for other shadows, and particularly to prevent creasing of eyeshadows, it's spectacular (as are the other Paint Pots). I'll also note that it is non-drying to my aging lids.
Comparisons - Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (matte yellow-beige) looks so yellow next to peachy Nubile. Paint Pot in Rubenesque definitely has more shimmer and warmer, redder peach tones; Nubile leans more flat and nude in comparison. Also reminds me of Lola Socialeyes Gel Eye Colour in Sand (shimmery pink champagne), which wears slightly lighter and brighter since it has pronounced pearly shimmer, though the base color tones are very similar.
Packaging - Round glass jar with domed black lid, like Fluidlines jars but wider.
Overall - My HG creme eyeshadow, by itself or as a base. Too bad it's LE...
UPDATE: just got NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone and it's my new HG base - it's a much better match for me (AAB/NC25).

I love this paint pot, even if it is a bit expensive. I find it a great e for any shadow, and the only reason I wouldn't repurchase this is because I like other paint pots just that little bit more. Ones like groundwork.
I've owed nubile for a while, and I got that from Amarixe videos as a recommendation. Nubile is a gorgeous colour, and great as any eyeshadow base.
It's a lovely light peachy colour that has a hint of frost to it. It's most comparable to painterly paint pot but instead of being matte like painterly it does have that hint of shimmer.
I used under satin taupe envy day for my go to eye look and it's great. It doesn't crease in me, although not many shadows do. I got this in the "goodbyes" sects on the MAC site, and I don't think it's available anymore. :( it came out with the posh paradise collection in September 2011.

LOVE Nubile! I use it as a base or alone over primer and I have no creasing problems! It's such a universal color you could use pretty much anything over it. I'm so fair (MUFE HD 110) that it comes off darker than my skin tone, just as reference. It's too bad that it's LE :( I guess I'll be careful not to use it up!

I LOVE this just as much as Painterly Paint Pot, which has been my HG eyeshadow base/primer for about 3-4 years. It's more beige and slightly deeper than Painterly. It's creamy, so powder sticks to it, rather than flaking off like it does on the more shimmery paint pots and paints. Matches my NC25 skintone well, and still looks good when I tan. Would repuchase if wasn't LE. Tip: Store it upside down and shut the cap tightly to prevent it from drying out, though I have never had that problem with mine. I have oily skin, and this prevents creasing, makes my shadow last all day, and keep the colors vibrant. Works great on oily and dry skin alike. I HIGHLY recommend this for light to medium skintones. I recommend Groundwork for medium/deep to dark skin tones, as it has the same creamy consistency as Painterly. All very universal shades.

I love this paint pot. It's perfect for when I do a "no make up" look. I put it on my lids and then lightly blend a light brown shadow into the crease.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Fine Eyes: Brown
This is my first Mac paint pot. Its a nude with pink undertones. Does not keep my shadows from creasing at all because i have extremely oily eyelids.
For me its a waste of money.

I find that this color has the same effect as Coral Crepe on me: they both make me look a bit sick and tired. The red tones in this shade is what makes me dislike it because other than that, it is extremely creamy, soft, pigmented and beautiful. The satin finish makes it a perfect pop-on-and-go shade, if only it was less red, it'd probably have HG status for me. I used this and immediately had to counteract the redness with a gold toned beige so that I don't look like I've been crying for hours. Dommage, I really wanted it to work on me. I think this would look amazing on darker skin tones because it will look like a peachy pink on them, which will brighten their eye area and open them up. I also think that this can be a very good base if you want to do a red shadow look, which is very trendy lately (Lisa Eldridge did a tutorial of it on a half asian girl). Overall, this is a great product, if you can pull it off.

Love MAC paint pots, as I have always said. However, sometimes around the holidays they come out with ones that are all shimmer. This one is just a pretty shiny almost nude color that is pretty alone or can be used as a base for other shadows. I bought every single color from this paint pot collection and love them all. This would be the best for a natural look. Can't say enough good things about MAC paint pots. My every day go to one is Soft Ochre! Best find ever!

I have a medium skin tone with dark lids, so this doesn't look pink on my lids at add. It produces a sort-of matte, neutral base. I like it a lot, and think it looks more natural than Painterly. I can use this on its own. It's very blendable.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Medium Eyes: Green
I would definitely buy this again if it is available. It is a limited edition. It really is my favorite paint pot color so far. It is pink, so it might not look on everyone. I'm NW20 - NW25 depending on how much sun I get, with green eyes and blond hair and it looks great on me! It's neutral and is a great base color before I do the rest of my eye shadow. It lasts all day. Love it!!! I found the ones everyone loves, like painterly, to be to beige on me, so this one was a great find. I knew I needed it the second I saw it.

This color looks great on my NC 45 skin tone. It's very creamy and looks great even alone if you are in a hurry and need a quick basic color for the eye. I use this at least 3 to 4 times a week. I love it!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Very Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
For Ref I'm NC42 and yellow undertones, Painterly is too light and pink for me and Groundwork is a tad dark for my skin, but Nubile is almost the exact color of my skin! This is very creamy, so much so that you might think it might crease but with my very oily lids this last about 7-9 hours on me. I use this as my everyday go to work look, it creates a clean pallette for my eyes and takes away any discoloration. I own about 9 paint pots and this is the most crease proof and long lasting one. Of course it's LE but this will probably last me a good while.

I'm NC15-20 and I loved this paint pot. It has nice shimmer, but it's not super chunky glitter (I'm thinking of you Let's Skate paint pot). I use it alone as an all over lid color with a dark brown winged eyeliner for a more basic look. I would buy again, but I probably won't ever have to (plus it was LE).
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I agree with below reviewer, possibly because I do have yellowish/warm understones and this color didn't do much for me. Looks like a nice one to have in the pot but just not on me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
I really really REALLY wanted to like this. I thought it would be a great departure from Painterly and Soft Ochre, but it was much too pink for my skin tone. It makes me look tired or as if I have a bad case of pink eye. For me, paint pots don't crease on me without a primer, but I don't particularly have oily eyelids either. It's an awesome color, just not for yellow skin tones such as myself.
