M.A.C Paint Pot – Review
The cosmetic line of M.A.C is one I’ve loved and used for years now. Only recently have I learned about this newer item called “Paint Pot”, so I picked one up in early 2010. Let me tell you, this shadow is amazing. I use it whenever I apply eye makeup.
As defined by M.A.C’s website, the paint pot is “a highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish”, and that is exactly what it does. I put it on my eye lid to use as a base, and then apply which ever powder eye shadow colours over top. I find that the paint pot is very useful, as it grabs a hold of your shadows upon application, making them last throughout the day (as opposed to only wearing shadows and having them fade before you get home).
The paint pot itself comes in 9 different shades (I use “Bare Study” which is a nude-type colour). The glass container is about the size of the single M.A.C eye shadow containers, and it holds 0.17 fl oz. Although it is fairly small, this product lasts and lasts. I’ve had mine since February or March 2010 and there’s still plenty left. The website says the US price is $16.50 (I can’t remember how much I spent on it – probably around $19). I purchased mine from the M.A.C store, but you can purchase it anywhere that sells M.A.C cosmetics, such as The Bay, etc.
To apply, all you need is the item and your finger. Smear your finger in the makeup and swipe across your eye lids. This makeup doesn’t cake up or create creases, so use as little or as much as you prefer.
I would really recommend the M.A.C paint pot to anyone who uses eye makeup. It is nice enough to wear it on its own, or under other eye shadows as a base. It is long lasting, and easy to remove. Try it out the next time you’re shopping for makeup!
