Work is so much busier for me at the moment and adjusting to now living on my own is definitely making me more tired and more lazy with my make up. I was lucky and got this Paint Pot from my brother and his girlfriend for my birthday.
After reading so many good reviews about paint pots I actually picked one up for my brother’s girlfriend for her birthday. Knowing she loves simple easy make up (my two niece’s make it a battle for her to find time) I thought she’d love it and I know she loves MAC. She loved hers so much she decided to get me one for my birthday as a surprise.
As with most MAC products the paint pot comes boxed and in the usual simple and classic black and white packaging. The paint pots come in a glass pot with a screw on lid. So far mine is almost two months old and I’ve not experienced any drying or changing in texture.
I was given the shade mooncake which is a neutral warm champagne glitter shade. MAC Paint pots can be worn as an eyeshadow base or an eyeshadow on it’s own. Some shades can also be worn as highlights.
I do find as this is a glitter shade it’s not as soft as the non glitter shades. The glitter is quite chunky through this and I do wish it was more of a shimmer. That being said it does look pretty built up and patted onto the lid with just mascara for an easy simple look.
Here you can see the colour blended out and built up. I tend to blend it out if I’m using it as an eye shadow base. I’m very impressed with how these last. I have oily skin and this lasts all day on my eyelid without creasing. I’m talking it lasts from 8am till I take my make up off which is very impressive. Even though it’s glittery I have added matte eye shadows over the top and the glitter is then disguised really well.
I really want more of these now and have some Debenhams beauty points to spend. Mooncake doesn’t seem to be available online now and I think it was part of the baking beauties collection. I’m now trying to decide between Bare Study, Painterly and Constructivist.
Have you got any paint pots? What colour would you get next?
