MAC Paint pot in Indianwood comes in a classic black MAC packaging with a screw cap. The glass packaging makes the product bulky to carry and there is always a fear of dropping it and breaking it. Indianwood is described as a metallic antique bronze shade with a frost finish. It is a beautiful bronze gold shade with finely-milled shimmer which looks very metallic on the lids.

However, there is no denying that MAC quality is always the best in cosmetics and this is the reason why many makeup artists swear by this product.
