I love this product it’s great for body painting or special effects it’s even better with mixing medium as well! I bought it from a mac pro store and it’s super long wearing and I’m definitely gonna buy other shades!

These are the body paints I use for Halloween and for editorial work. They’re water activated and full pigment! Super nice texture and easy to use. The perfect range of colors and you can mix your own!

I bought this makeup last year for an Elphaba cosplay. For someone with sensitive skin, the chromacake worked very well without any allergic reactions. I absolutely loved the makeup and paired it with the Mac translucent setting powder and a setting spray to keep it from wearing off. I used a spray bottle to add very little water to activate the makeup. More water for a lighter color, less for a darkened green. Let each thin layer dry before adding another layer or adding other make up. This worked as the foundation for the other makeup I added for contouring and highlights. I used the makeup on my face, ears, neck, shoulders, forearms, and hands. Overall I enjoyed the product very much and still have plenty left over for more uses

I recently purchased this product because I wanted to create a Maleficent makeup look and this shade was the closest. It is water activated so it is easy to use. It dries down matte but have to use a powder to set it. It seemed to hold its shape and not crack only in my smile lines which I quickly fixed.

I know Mac ChromaCake it's difficult to find, but if you ever come to a Mac pro store which there's five in United States. I highly suggest grabbing every item in the store because they're very rare to find it hard to find this crown the cake is amazing. You can do any color, they even create colors for you at the store. I can use this Chromeacake for eyeshadow mascara, face paint, lipstick pretty much anything you can think of you can use Chromeacake colors for. It's a brilliant product it's unfortunate they don't sell it at every MAC store.

I love these for a professional product to have in your kit. You get a large amount of product too, which is always appreciated. The color is buildable coverage. Very interesting product.

Cromacakes are such a cool product. The first time I saw them in a MAC Pro store I thought they were gigantic eyeshadows. They a huge, about the size of a softball. They are used mostly for body painting. It's a hard, solid product but once you wet them they turn into this luxurious, creamy, super pigmented, opaque paint. They're easy to work with and once dry are incredibly long wearing. Chartreuse is a gorgeous color.

These are only available at MAC Pro locations.

Love using MAC Cosmetics Chromacake paint in all colors during Halloween, gives my Halloween makeup looks great detail without being drying or difficult to work with, just add as much water to the pan as you wish and apply

Love and own a few of MAC’s chromacake colors. They’re so easy to use and stay on for a very long time. Perfect for sugar skull or full body makeup. They also last a long time as well. You can also mix different colors and customize.

USE FIX + TO ACTIVATE THIS PRODUCT!! I find that it's the best solution to get a great, even, NOT streaky application. I used the Pure White and Marine Blue for Halloween, and it lasted all night! It didn't smear, and the color stayed bright all day! I'm investing in more colors
