I had been toying with the idea of getting a MAC Paint Pot for the longest of time. At first, I had no idea what it was; was it a cream eyeshadow, an eye paint (whatever that means) or an eyeshadow base? The answer is the latter, it is an eyeshadow base. It is available in seven colors, ranging from nude bases to black. From my experience, I gather that they can be worn as eyeshadow and eyeshadow bases. I wanted a neutral base that could be worn with all kinds of eyeshadows, so I opted for Painterly, which is a nude beige.
What I liked about it? When worn on its own, it applies smoothly and does not crease. It blends fine with eyeshadow, without messing up their color. As a base, it is comparable to Urban Decay Primer Potion, although I think I like it a tad bit more. When worn with a paint pot, my eye make-up lasts for 5 to 6 hours, which is amazing for me considering I rub my eyes a lot. It costs $20 Canadian for 5g of product – which is a whole lot for this thing. Unless it dries out, I suspect this thing is going to last me a lifetime. I love that it comes in tub and I can just use my fingers to place it on my lid.
What I don’t like about it? Nothing!
Will I repurchase? I don’t think I’ll need to, but I definitely want to get other colors, especially Rubenesque and Blackground.
