REVIEW | MAC PAINT POTS

Having oily lids can be your biggest nightmare when it comes to making your eye shadow last longer than about 3 hours. This my biggest issue and I envy you girls who have normal to dry. I have read so many amazing reviews for the MAC Paint Pots and so many top celebrity makeup artists swear by them that I had to give them ago since my eye lids are very oily. I have the Layin' low and Chrome Angel paint pots with me today. Man was I surprised at how amazing they were, so here is a detailed review with a few pictures if you were wondering how they compared to other eye shadow bases. You can buy them at any MAC Counter in Hong Kong and roughly costs around HK$150-200 if I am not mistaken.

A nude or skin tone eye shadow base with a matte finish. The texture has more of a velvet feel to it. The first time I decided to wear it I thought I need to put it to the test and wore it for a music concert. I applied the paint pot all over my eye lids up until the brow. Since its a nude tone its also good for concealer dark circles or any discolouration on your eye lids as well. I started getting ready at around 4 in the afternoon and when I got home it was around midnight. The concert was hot and stuffy and the perfect combination to have an eye shadow melt down. To my surprise when I got back home my eye makeup was perfect. There was very very slight creasing that you had to go close to the mirror to notice, other than that it was the same as I had applied at 4 in the afternoon. Normally with 3 hours I notice creasing on my lids. This time after 8 hours I was very happy that my eye makeup stayed put and all thanks to the MAC paint pot. The eye shadows were also much brighter and showed up better on the lids. Specially when I wore lighter shades it was much visible as I have dark skin, lighter shades tend to disappear on me.

A silver toned eye shadow base with a shimmer finish to it. The base is creamy and a metallic that is perfect for making your eye shadows stand out. With this eye shadow base I apply it just over the eye lids. Perfect for creating a bold and vibrant looks. I specially love using it with darker shades when I go out in the night. Its very sparkly and pigmented and you can wear it alone as an eye shadow. The wear time is good but not as long as 8 hours because its more on the creamy side it did tend to crease faster, so I got around 5-6 hours of wear time.

I have tried a lot of different eye shadow bases but thing compares like the MAC Paint Pots. They make the eye shadows last long and make them pop at the same time. Relatively a bit higher on the price range compared to some High-Street brands but they definitely worth every penny you spend on it. I definitely recommend them and I am certainly going to get a few more for sure myself.
