Today i’m writing a review about a product I brought a month ago and am loving so much! It’s by the brand MAC and it’s their Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre. It is definitely a product worth sharing about so i thought it was worthy of a review post on my blog. Before I brought this product i was solely on the hunt for an eye shadow primer. My eye shadow would crease or be worn off by the end of the day without a primer so i knew i needed to invest in one. I wear quite full coverage makeup so i needed one that had pigmentation to it so it would blend into my eyelid colour well before i applied eye-shadows. If your similar and wear alot of foundation and are looking for a pigmented shade eyeshadow primer I would highly recommend that you check out MAC’s Paint Pot range.
This is a creamy eye-shadow, which can be worn alone as it dries with an intense finish, or it can be worn as a base. It is strongly pigmented and also extremely long lasting. Mine always lasts all day without any noticeable creasing. They have a range of 9 shades if you are wanting it as purely a creamy eye-shadow. But if your looking for a primer eyelid base then they have shades that would suit and match any skin tone. I wear NC foundation by MAC and found that the Soft Ochre was a perfect match. Soft Ochre is a yellow beige shade and blends in so well with my NC25/NC30 skin. I’ve seen alot of reviews of people who have the Painterly shade too. I would say this suits NW skin tones more as it has some pinky tones to it and finishes as a nude beige. This product has honestly changed my eye-shadow game! The cream shadow itself isn’t ‘cakey’ when applied, it also is non-flaking, water resistant, long-wearing and crease proof…just what anybody wants for a good eye-shadow base or eye-shadow. It is also a highly buildable shadow that never looks too heavy even if you apply a few coats of it. I have found that as a primer it keeps my eye-shadow applied on the top looking smooth and stays on all day! Literally I’ve had my makeup on for 15 hours before and my eye-shadow still looks the same as when i freshly applied in the morning whatever the weather. You can use a brush to apply this with but I just dab a clean finger into the pot and apply on my lid with that. It goes on so smooth and I am in love with this product. It gives me the shade coverage that i need for my lids and allows my eye products to stay put all day. For a 5g pot it costs £16.50. A worthy price to pay for the results you get. The pot of eye-shadow I can imagine will last me a good few months before I need to buy a new one as you don’t need much of it as the pigmentation is intense and so good!
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a long wearing creamy eye-shadow, an eye-shadow with incredible pigmentation or someone who is looking for an eye-shadow primer that will keep eye makeup looking fresh all day and for long hours, also for someone who fake tans and needs their lids to match with their foundation before applying other shadows on the top. This is such a bendable product and I will be buying this again! I hope you all enjoyed this review post and let me know in the comments if you have tried out the Pro Longwear Paint Pots by Mac, I would love to know your opinions on it also!
