    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

    it goes on perfectly if you don't like it and it "creases" probably cause you're putting way too much on it doesn't take much. you truly use less eye shadow and its easier to blend

      Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

      I have always used either the Urban Decay primer potion or Too Faced's Shadow Insurance for eyeshadow primer. Both of those are a tackier formula, and I always wondered how youtube makeup artists had such vibrant eyeshadow. Well, I know they must use Mac's paint pot! It blends super easily, makes eyeshadoe absolutely GORGEOUS! I've been getting compliments on my eye makeup now, same eyeshadows, just instead I've been using this. It goes on so easy & creamy.

            I was using a clinique product as an eyeshadow base but this stuff is so much better! It's nude and silky soft. I use my finger and smudge all over my lid then apply eyeshadow. It's stays all day and doesn't crease.

                    I use this every day as a base. It hides any veins or discoloration on no makeup days and holds my eyeshadow in place all day when I go all out. Lasts me at least 8 months to a year, and with daily use, that makes it totally worth the money in my mind!

                        Makes a good base for shadow, but also is good as a shadow on its own. I like using it all over my lid, with a purple/plum shadow at the outer edge of my eye and blended. As a nice shimmer.

                          Until the Ulta MAC rep introduced me to the wonders of what a paint pot was and what it can do, I had never heard of one! Now I can't imagine ever not using it every day.

                          I can either use it as my eye lid coloring or I can use it a first layer over the primer and it will make my eyeshadow stay ALL day long —- like a 20 hour day and my eyeshadow will be the only thing that is still hanging on. It's my holy grail now!!

                            I have extremely dark eyelids and none of my neutral shadows (or any shadows for that matter) can be seen. I heard that the MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot may help. I have a light skin tone. Please let me know what you think. I am not opposed to a little shimmer but I am in my 50s and don't want to be "sparkly".

                              We're happy to help, Robin! Soft Ochre is a perfect choice to help combat darkness. If you like a little shimmer, apply Soft Ochre first and top with a light "wash" of MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Bare Study. This will help correct the deeper tones of your lids while enjoying a soft, eye-opening sheen.

                              We think you'll love the results!

                              MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Layin Low is excellent as a nude base for powder eye shadows, just a sheer layer is needed! It will help your shadow to go on more evenly and prevent fading and creasing.

                              We're glad to help! Painterly (a nude beige) is a great colour to start with in MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot. It's light, neutral and can be worn alone or under Eye Shadows as a base! Groundwork is also a great colour option for a neutral, slightly deeper shade on the eyes.

                              We think Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Painterly will be the perfect base underneath your Eye Shadows! It's a nude-beige with a slight pink undertone, and won't alter or affect the colour of any Shadows being applied over it.

                            Hi! I'm on the pale side with yellow undertones. Usually buy products labeled "light". Which of these shades would you recommend for me if I wanted an everyday base?

                              We're glad to help, Tori! Sounds like MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (a yellow beige) will be a fantastic option for you.

                            Can you use this as a primer for eye shadow? I was Jeffery star on YouTube and he uses this every time before doing his eye shadow.

                              Yes, Jasmine! MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots make a fantastic base for Eye Shadows. Apply a thin layer, blend and allow to set for a few moments before applying other eye products for best results.
