MAC Idyllic Paint Pot was a part of their posh paradise collection (limited edition). MAC Paint Pots are multipurpose products, Eyeshadow, Eyeshadow Base or eyeliner assembled into one. They have incredible smooth & creamy texture with very few exceptions in case of any glitters incorporated. Also they are highly pigmented with rich colour pay off & wears as smudgeproof & water proof post application. They glide very smoothly & effortlessly on lids & dries down pretty fast. Comes in a heavy bottomed glass pot with matte black lid.
Idyllic is a complex mix of brown, Copper, Burgundy with nice red toned reflects. It gives a frost finish. On swatching it looked more like a creamier version of MAC cranberry avoiding the strong brown tones. I find Idyllic going perfectly with the ethnic wear. The shade look fabulous if weared alone all over lids till crease. This would be a great bridal choice with nice reflects on the lid. Idyllic wears for good 10-12 hours on my lids without any creasing or fading. Once set with powder shadow, stays beyond that. This is a nice shade to own from MAC’s Paint Pot collection but sadly a limited edition shade. MAC generally re-promotes the shades every now & then with their new collection, so do check this one out if you get a chance.
MAC Paint Pots survives longer without any drying issues. The SA advised me to store them upside down when I got my first one about a year ago & it is still as good as a new one without any change in the texture. With the multipurpose tag & some versatile shades in the range these are worth to invest. Highly Recommended.

I can’t think of any negatives about the product.
Idyllic is quite a complex shade with a mix of brown, copper with red toned reflects. This is quite a versatile shades & works amazingly well with ethnic wears. Can be called as a festive shade & a great pick for bridal wear.
