    Mac paint pot painterly

    After so many positive youtube reviews, I thought
    I would purchase this...overhyped for sure. I wanted it as an eyeshadow base but it was too dark for me and showed all my fine lines. Save your money and get the Essence eyeshadow base for 5 bucks at Shoppers Drug Mart..its so much better.

    I think most use MAC paint pots as eyeshadow primers or as a base for other shadows. Honestly I just use them as eyeshadows and I quite like them. My favorites for a quick wash of colour on the lid are Bare Study and Rubenesque. They last all day and do not crease. On a negative note though, they do tend to dry out and pull away from the sides of the jar. This can make them apply very patchy. I remedy this by re-mixing the shadow with a metal spatula after spraying a tiny amount of MAC fix plus into the paint pot.

    I have to say that this is a product that I can't live without. I have gone threw so many jars of this I have lost count. I have gone and tried other products that are supposed to do the same but they never live up to mac. I have to say that the application is easy and it last on the lid along time. It makes my shadow last longer and it make cheaper shadows last longer also. You don't need a lot of the product and has a creamy consistency. There is a good color selection and I would not put on shadow without mac paint underneath it. I would highly recommend this product and of coarse mac is a higher priced but this one is worth it.

    This product is one of my must haves! It acts like a concealer for my eyelids. It is a good eyeshadow base but it can crease a little bit when worn alone.

    I've been using MAC Paint Pots as a base for my eyeshadow for years, and it's hard to imagine what I did before these were around!

    They make the perfect primer for eyeshadow. I simply apply to my eyelid with my finger, blend it out and continue with my eyeshadow application over top. Painterly is my favourite for evening out my skintone and hiding any redness or veins on my lids.

    You'll be amazed how much longer your shadows will last, not to mention how much more vibrant your whole look will be.

    The great thing about these is that they come in a wide range of shades. These can be worn on their own as well for those days you're in a rush and want to add a wash of colour on your lids.

    I don't really like using this as a base for my eyeshadow, but I like the color a lot. Sometimes I use it by itself. My beef is that this paint pot creases on me like crazy at the corner of my eyes. I don't understand why this happens? I think it's because it dries really fast. I have to blend it out after an hour when I get to work. It's kind of annoying. I put it on and find that when I try to blend my e/s it bundles up into clumps and looks like I have a disease on my eyelids!

    Needed a primer and the cosmetician at The Bay - Pickering showed me this product. I couldn't believe my eyes when she did a demo with a bright purple on the back of her hand. Without the paint pot, it was a washed out dull purple, with the paint pot, the colour was vivid and came to life!
