Mac Paintpot Review!

Okay, so I have a confession to make: I have never bought a full-sized bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Shocking, I know! But if you are wondering why not, it's because I have never really needed it. Instead, I have these gorgeous paint pots, which are just as effective as an eyeshadow primer. I also prefer them to the Potion (I have tried a sample size) as they are coloured, so, if in a rush, you can use these pots as cream eyeshadows.



Top L-R: Constructivist, Fresco Rose, Indianwood.

Bottom L-R: Bare Study, Painterly, Rubenesque.

In detail and in no particular order:

Painterly ^ - Painterly is the colour of my foundation - it is just a matte, nude colour which is great for covering up discolouration and veining. This is probably the most boring colour, but also the most practical. It means that you will get the 'true' colour of your eyeshadow on your lids.

Fresco Rose ^ - Fresco Rose is a pretty, frosty baby-pink colour. I like to use this colour when wearing a purple smokey eye as it provides a more interesting base.

^ Bare Study - Bare Study is a champagne pearl colour. This is such a beautiful shade and it makes neutrals like Mac's 'Vanilla' look more interesting.


^ Rubenesque - Rubenesque is a peachy-bronze colour. This is probably my favourite paint pot. It is brilliant for using as a cream shadow when in a rush and gives an extra pop to any colours applied over it. Love it!

Constructivist ^ Constructivist is a metallic deep brown colour. This is a great shade for priming a brown smokey eye.


Finally, Indianwood ^ is a slightly lighter version of Constructivist with gold undertones to it. I would say that it's a blend of Rubenesque and Constructivist! Another very pretty, wearable colour.

I hope this was useful to you and that you have a lovely Sunday :) xx

  8. No problem! If you're trying to decide between the two, it depends whether you want to play it safe or not. Bare Study is probably the more practical choice, but I prefer Rubenesque! xx
