          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

          After seeing so much hype (for years!) about this being a great eyeshadow primer, I finally picked up soft ocre to help with my oily eyelids and creasing shadow. This product is so strange. It's dry, kind of pastey and if it had any real pigment, it would be so patchy! Returning for sure.

            I have extremely fair/pale skin and my dark veins are very visible in my eyelid. I have used this product for years as a base to 1. cover the unsightly veins in my eyes and 2. serve as a perfect base for eyeshadow. Long wearing, doesn't crease. It provides wonderful coverage... I've tried samples of other eyeshadow bases in the past that are very transparent. Nothing compares to this stuff, and it lasts forever. It only takes a tiny amount to get the perfect coverage.

                  After searching reviews of many eye shadow primers, I settled on this MAC paint pot in ochre. It's a great color on my light neutral skin tone. Unfortunately, I had an immediate reaction to some ingredient in it that made my eyelids burn, then itch, and then water. I tried wearing it two more times with the reaction happening immediately each time. I so wanted this product to work for me. I wonder if anyone else has had a reaction to it.

                      Hi Angela! If you're looking to use MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot as an eye shadow base, try Soft Ochre. For a gorgeous soft smoky look, try Groundwork.

                      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!
