Top-Bottom: Painterly, Vintage Selection, Let’s Skate! & Groundwork
I’m a big lover of cream eyeshadows and the Mac Paint Pots are some of my favourite that I own. I currently have a mini collection of four that I thought I’d share!
My most used out of the bunch, for me it’s a perfect base colour as it’s neutral with a pink tone. I use it most days as it acts almost like a canvas on your lids, it hides any veins and discolouration and makes eyeshadows worn over the top of it last much longer!
I think this one is my favourite of them all, it’s a slightly darkened, warm, shimmery champagne colour which looks so nice for a fairly natural day time look. It looks great on it own but I’ve also found that this one looks really pretty when paired with other shadows over the top like Urban Decay ‘Sin’ or Mac ‘Naked Lunch’.
This one is a pale, strawberry milkshake pink with gold and pink shimmer in it. This is the only one that is a little tricky to apply and takes a little bit more care but once blended it looks lovely! The shimmer really shines through and it just reminds me of winter and icicles – very Elsa from Frozen!
Lastly, this one is a soft, brown shade that I love to use as a base whenever I want to create a warm, brown, smokey eye! It really intensifies any darker colours applied over the top and helps to create a smokey eye much quicker than if you were to start with just eye shadow. It looks quite matte in the pot but once on it has a slight sheen to it which also makes it look really pretty on its own for a more neutral look.
I just thought I’d mention that I also had ‘Bare Study’ in my collection too but I just didn’t like it, I know it quite the cult favourite so mine is probably an unpopular opinion. All of the paint pots mentioned above have great staying power and this one just creased fairly quickly on me which was rather unimpressive. I felt like it didn’t look half as beautiful and shimmery once on my eyes as it did in the pot, so I gave that one a miss!
Have you got any Mac Paint Pots? Which ones would you recommend?
