    A Make-Up Lover’s Staple

    I would definitely recommend this product as an eyeshadow base, as it’s blendable and long-lasting. It’s a little on the pricey side but I’ve found that most MAC products last a long time and — because of high quality — they end up being a go-to item over others.

    This is a definite alternative to eyeshadow primers like Urban Decay Primer Potion, which has given some users — like me — an allergic reaction in the winter months.

    Groundwork is a safe colour for darker skin, and Soft Ocre is the shade most use to make their eyeshadow colours pop.

    Holy grail

    I don’t know what I did before discovering Mac paint pot . It’s the best lid primer ever and also works as a concealer too . I love it and will never be without

    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.

    AMAZING

    Paint Pots are great at MAC. I actually just ordered Bare Study and it came in the mail today. They work much better than their typical eye shadow. I also like them because you can use them as a case and it really keeps on traditional shadow all day. Its not cakey or greasy and you don't get that crease as the day goes on. In addition, a pen eye liner (i.e. tattoo liner by kat von d) goes over it really smoothly. It doesn't dry our your pen as well.

    Meh

    I am a MAC girl, but this product isn't their best. It dries out fairly quickly so if you're not using it everyday you'll end up wasting it. It also doesn't work with everyones skin type, some people find it doesn't hold shadow that long and others swear by it. I personally dont love the colour options for pale skin or olive skin -looks ashy.It's not my choice for an eye primer sorry!

    I have only had this for a few months and im obsessed!

    I just bought the shade soft ochre a few months ago and it is already one of my favourite products, my ride or die. I love to use mine as a eye shadow primer because it is a neutral colour that holds my shadow in place all day! It applies supper easily and has a great formula that is matte but not too drying and really does stay in place. This definitely keeps my eye shadow on so much longer then without a base. It is a pretty decent price and a little bit of the product goes quite a long way, and I love the different shades it comes in and I already want to buy another.
