Didn't work for me

This product was so highly raved about in the review and on YouTube I was excited to try it for myself, but it just didn't work out on my eyes. As an eyeshadow base, it was extremely pigmented but when I tried to blend it out, it clung unevenly to different spots and made my eyelids look dry and patchy around the edges which no other eyeshadow primer has ever done for me. By the middle of the day, my kids were creasing and my eyeshadow had all but disappeared on the lid. I wanted to love it but the paint pot just didn't work for me. Would not recommend if you have a combination of dry skin and oily eyelids.

Soft Ochre - The Perfect Eyeshadow Base

Amazing matte formula that isnt too drying that will keep eyeshadow in place all day. I have oily eye lids and this stays put without creasing all day at work. It is slightly lighter and more yellow than my NC20 skin tone which means that any colour I put on top is a lot brighter and looks pigmented. Eyeshadows blend like a dream on top. Very thin formula so doesn't cake up but a lot of pigment to cover any unwanted veins or discolouration in eyelids. Always used concealer for my eye base as I found other eye primers to be useless, however concealer would crease up after a few hours - this doesn't budge! Will definitely repurchase (although this won't be for a long time as a little goes a long way and you get so much product, mine looks barely touched after weeks of use)

BEST shadow primer!!!!

I know these are made to be colors of their own but I must say... Paint pots are the BEST for shadow primer!! They have a strong pigment base which helps hide ALL imperfections on lids! they don't crease at all throughout the WHOLE day. Plus, their texture has a slight tackiness to it which helps shadow stay the entire day as well as let the true shadow color show brighter than nay other way you could put it on! And it blends into all spots on the eye and looks great up to the brow line! I use a brush or my finger and both work great! I have lightish-medium skin and the soft ochre is PERFECT! I've tried almost every shadow primer and I will NEVER use anything else but this again!

Easy to Apply, Stays Put

This is one of my all time favorite liners. It stays put without primer and doesn't transfer to the crease even on a hot day. It lasts an average of about 10 hours and I've fallen asleep in this liner and it is still there in the morning, as perfect as the line I drew at 8 a.m. What more can be said?My favorite color is Strong Willed, a good alternate to black. It has enough pigment to create excellent definition without looking too harsh. It also blends beautifully, making it great as a full on pigment or a soft shadow when you use a blending brush.Bottom line: Excellent value for money. A great everyday liner that goes the distance and creates a creamy, defined line that you can work with before it sets. TRY IT.

Wow!!!

I love the Mac Paint Pots!! I have 3 samples in Bare Study, Rubenesque and Treasure Hunt (which is limited edition with the Posh Paradise Collection!) I absolutley love it! they are so smooth and creamy and pigmented! I've been just throwing them on my eyes with out a primer under or a powder eyeshadow over it! I will be purchising some paint pots soon!! even if i paid the 17.50$ for them, my opinion would still be the same as it is(even though the samples were free!) and it dosent creas at all! I had rebensque on all day yesterday (from 8am to 9pm) without a primer under or a powder shadow over it and it lasted all day without creasing!! Its amazing! and its also very blendible, so you can sheer it our or build it up a little. the ones i have arn't too, too buildable, but they are still really great!

I have watery eyes so when I put my eyeshadow and liner on it gets messed up within a couple of hours when I step outside. Any suggestion to keep my eye make look fresh?

What’s your favorite eyeshadow palette? Neutral/for everyday that you can also use to amp up a look, if you wanted to. Luxury or drugstore. Thanks, ladies! P.S I have brown eyes, and light to medium skin tone, also my lids can be oily (depending on the weather/temperature)

Also I use two Mac pain pots religiously. The Groundwork is my everyday no-makeup make up look and I use Indianwood when I want to add some drama.

So my eye has a deep crease with oily eyelids and it is resulting in the top half of my eyeshadow always wearing off prematurely and I wanted to know if anyone could recommend any products to use to help combat this issue/ any eyeshadow blending techniques are appreciated

MAC has a pro longwear eyeshadow base in painterly, that I swear will not budge for days, it’s more of a cream texture but it’s isnt filled with highlights so it blends more closely to your skin tone. (Compared to using concealers)
