MAC Paint Pots

I am obsessed with eye makeup, with trying new looks, colours and styles. I used to be a no eyeshadow girl, I'd just use mascara and eyeliner as it was easy and convenient, it also just looked how I wanted it to. I discovered cream eyeshadow a while ago now and loved it from the second I tried it on, the look, feel and longevity was incredible and still is.

I wasn't aware how amazing a small pot of cream eyeshadow could be until I discovered the Paint Pot by MAC. I believe these have been around for years and they come in an array of colours ranging from matte to shimmer which is fab as I love a bit of both. I currently only have two of the pots in my collection, at £15.00 they aren't the cheapest of product to buy and I can't decide which other colours I'd like to try.




The first shade I have is 'Painterly', a matte light pink toned neutral which makes a fantastic everyday base for any eyeshadow. The pink pigments work extremely well to counteract blue tones and veins on the eyelids as well as concealing any pigmentation and leaving a beautiful, smooth base for eyeshadow application. I also find this works as a general eyeshadow, I can use this alone on a daily basis and it gives a lovely neutral shade to the lid, covering any imperfections and giving a hint of colour. 

The other shade I have is 'Camel Coat', I actually purchased this one first out of the two, this is also a matte shade but a little darker than 'Painterly' and more on the brown side. I find myself reaching for this shade more over the other purely because I think it suits my skin tone better and I just generally enjoy wearing the colour more. Again this one could be worn alone or with eyeshadows, I think it looks gorgeous alone personally and this is my favourite way to wear it. 

I love the consistency of the paint pots, the lasting power is fantastic and I don't experience any creasing or problems throughout the day when I wear the product. I highly recommend these to anyone, and if you're on a budget take into consideration that the one pot will last you such a long time as you only need to use a small amount, there is a lot in there! 

What are your favourite eyeshadows?

  3. these look great! I've been using the maybelline color tattoos, but I've heard that the MAC ones are better quality and don't dry out as fast!
