    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

    I've always used MAC paint pots as my eye shadow base. It is the best and ONLY eye shadow base I've ever used. My go-to was "Painterly" but I decided to switch it up and get Soft Ochre because its a lighter shade so eye shadows really stand out. The product applies so smooth and pigmented. MAC Paint Pots will never disappoint me.

      Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

      I have hooded eyes, so I bought the soft ochre shade. It really does a great job of "color correcting" my darker eyes. They are really brightened up! My matte shadows stayed all day! I've always used all about eyes by Clinique, but I will be switching full time to the paint pots! LOVE them!

      Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

      Had this in Painterly, and I absolutely loved it! I've had it since July, so a small amount goes a long way. I'm hoping to reorder this but in soft ochre. If you want a beautiful eyeshadow base you must get this! Even though your eyeshadows don't move it's easy to come off at the end of the day with a makeup remover.

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot:

        I use painterly and soft ochre mostly for a base, these have worked great for me. My only negative comment would be that it doesn't apply every easily, maybe it's just the batch I got but you have to work a little to evenly apply. Other than that it's an amazing product that I use daily.

            So great as a eye shadow primer which has been all I have used it for. Ended up sleeping with my eyeshadow on and it still looked good in the morning ! The color is a bit dark for me since I am very fair but my eyeshadow covers it well.

              I have very oily eyelids and I have used tons of primer and you name it, but this product is a great primer, base and I use it from the eyebrows to the lashes and then layer my powder eye-shadow. it is just the fix I needed. It does not take much product and so it really it a bargain because IT WORKS!!!

                This is the only eye primer I buy. It works great every time. I have oily skin and without the paint pot my shadows crease within the first hour. This last all day to night. I also use it for covering pimples. Works great!

                I go out of my way to turn all of my friends on to this. to the point where I buy one for them. not one of them has used anything else as eyeshadow primer since making the switch. I also love the actual shadow colors for a great shadow that lasts all day. I do wish Ulta carried the entire shade range.

                  I've always had trouble with foundation staying on my nose throughout the day and I've been watching YouTube videos on how to keep it to stay and alot of people say to use this under foundation and concealer. would this work to prime my nose?

                    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.

                    MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot is very similar, Belinda! It goes on creamy then sets to a long-wearing finish. Can be used alone for a sheer wash of colour or under powder shadows to help grab colour and prevent fading and creasing.

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".

                    A:

                    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!

                    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.
