review: mac paint pots







likes
-makes eyeshadow vibrant
-comes in a lot of different colors and finishes
-doesn't crease so a base isn't necessary
-easily applied with either fingers or a brush
-the packaging is pretty

dislikes
-product can be drying on the lids ( you have to blend quickly)
-the breakable glass packaging
-expensive
-if you don't blend it properly it can kinda look cakey

would i purchase again?
probably not, with products like udpp & tfsi you can't find a better base and nyx's jumbo eye pencils are as vibrant and easier to blend. it's also cheaper.

I use Bare Study every day! It's my staple :) But it does get cakey if not blended fast. Only good thing is that they really last through the day

I only tried samples of these, I've always thought they are great bases but you're right, UDPP is enough for me :)

mimi said...

@p chan - yes i agree with you! i think it's so great that it lasts all day!

@nikki udpp or tfsi is the best alternatives :) these are kinda expensive :(

After the arrival of my MUFE aqua creams and Sin UDPP I have neglected my paint pots.

Still want to try them, but unfortunately don't have any Mac stores around my place :(

Awwwww, I'm sorry you won't be getting more paint pots - I love them so! :) Constructivist looks real pretty :)

Mary said...

I have Painterly and I don't use it much at all... which sucks because of how much I paid for it.

Just get too lazy sometimes lol

mimi said...

@jacqueline i always use my tfsi too :( i barely use these anymore

@ anastacia awwww can't you order them online?

mimi said...

@pinch who know *shrug* i might change my mind! hahaha

@mary it's so much easier to use a clear base..no worries about blending :))
