        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

        I wish I had known about this product sooner for eyeshadow primer!

        For years I have been using the Urban Decay primer potion, but I have never been in LOVE with it and any other similar primers never stood out to me.

        This paint pot has changed my eyeshadow game, I have chronically dry skin (and eyelids) and this smooth's my eyelids out perfectly without accentuating any dryness or texture. My eyeshadow blends perfectly on top and lasts forever, no creasing! I will never use another product for eyeshadow primer ever again.

          I've tried several different eye shadow primers, and I finally discovered this one last week. I love it so much! It glides on my eyelids with ease. My eyeshadow lasts all day! It doesn't smudge or crease at all. The shade is perfect for my skin tone, and it evens out pigmentation on my eyelids. I highly recommend this product to everyone!

            Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

            I warm a little bit on a small brush and blend onto lid...it's fairly thick but goes on nicely. A little goes a long way. It sets a nice matte primer for shadows and truly takes away the oil that can build and create creases for HOURS. I have olive skin and use the shade Painterly. Have been using for years, a standby.

            Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

            I bought this in the "Bare Study" shade, thinking I could use it as an all-over base (with or w/o shadow). It has no pigment at all - just a light shimmer. Not going to work for me.

                Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

                I read a review where a makeup artist was using this as a primer for actresses and she reported that this stayed in place all day, no creasing. And, had the side benefit of being a great primer.

                Well, she was absolutely right. This is pure gold! I use it alone and as a primer and it stays in place all day and into the night - even if I forget and rub my eyes occasionally.

                I won't ever let myself run out of this - ever.

                      MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (matte yellow beige) and Bare Study (sheer shimmery beige) both work well on fair skintones, Danyell! Wear alone for a sheer wash of colour or under powder shadows as a base, helping shadow to wear longer and prevent creasing.

                  • Q:

                    I like applying different colored eyeshadows next to one another on the eyes, can I use paint pot on top of already applied eyeshadow so I can put two totally different colors next to each other?
                    For example: my base color is a light blue, and I want to put gold on top of that can I apply paint pot, and then apply gold eyeshadow on top of the paint pot so I can tell the difference between the blue and the gold. (Or will liquid concealer work for that purpose)

                      MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot works well on hooded eyes and helps prevent fading and creasing. It does set to a dry finish, hydrate the eye area well with MAC Fast Response Eye Cream before application for optimum results. This lightweight gelcreme hydrates, de-puffs, erases the appearance of dark circles and firms the skin around the eye!

                      MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly is a nude beige that is excellent to help even out colour on lids. It's a cream shadow that can be used alone or under powder shadows as a base and resists fading and creasing.

                      A:

                      Hi Rayna! While you may have seen this makeup hack on social media, we don't suggest it for daily use this way. MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot isn't translucent, so it may show too much colour or texture when used underneath Foundation (although it's perfect as a base under Eye Shadows). As an alternative, we suggest MAC Prep + Prime Skin as a base underneath your makeup for flawless, long-lasting results.
