Hi lovely readers! I hope you had a happy Christmas. For me it’s time to go back to work and to post again on Kenderasia. Today I want to write a review about Pro Longwear Paint Pots by MAC cosmetics, from the fall 2013 collection.
I waited a long time before trying Paint Pots. I’ve always loved old Paints, those in the tube: maybe they’re a little messy because of that packaging but they’re the best eyesahdow base for me so far. However I decided to give Paint Pots a try. My first Paint Pot was Vintage Selection, not a classical one because it’s from the Pro Longwear range which came out past year. It’s really shimmery – I’d dare to say glittery – and it makes an excellent eyeshadow base.
When new Paint Pots Pro Longwear were launched this fall I couldn’t really resist. In the range I saw some matte in dusty, taupey shades and you know, I can’t help getting all taupes in the world. Matte taupes are even better. When I saw them in real life I wasn’t disappointed. I ended up getting
- Stormy Pink, a gorgeous gorgeous taupey mauve; it’s so beautiful even on its own that I use it alone as a wash on my lids.
- Camel Coat, not really camel but a taupey beige extremely useful for a lot of looks, one of my best canvas for lids; you need this if you love neutral colours or simply cat eyeliner look.
- Perky, a delicate, shimmery coral-peach; it really brightens the eyes and the whole complexion making your eyes look well rested.
I’m really impressed with Paint Pots as eyeshadow base and cream eyeshadow alone: they don’t crease on me and they last perfect for 12 hours. You can blend them effortlessly before they set and you can mix them with powder eyeshadows without mess.
If you’re interested in Taylor Grey you can find a perfect dupe with Maybelline Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe, they’re almost the same colour 😉
These Paint Pots are luckly all permanent, so you can still find them at your MAC counters.
