MUST BUY! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
SHADE NAMEConstructivist
Love this! It is creamy but dries quickly so there's no creasing. Constructivist is my favorite paint pot colour. It can be worn alone or with other shadows. You have to work fast to blend where you want it because it does dry immediately. I apply with a MAC synthetic concealer brush or my finger. My favorite way to use this: apply Constructivist to the entire lid and lower lash line. Layer with Satin Taupe (MAC eyeshadow), apply Handwritten (MAC eyeshadow) in crease applying darker in outer corner and blending lighter towards inner corner. For even more dimension, apply Carbon (MAC eyeshadow) in the outer-V blending seamlessly into Handwritten. Use a light brown shadow like Soft Brown or Patina (both MAC eyeshadows) to help blend Handwritten so it's not too harsh. Use a highlighting color on brow bone like Rice Paper or Brule. LOVE this look!

This Paint Pot gives me life!
I have been using this item for over 8 months thanks to a super make up artist who made this recommendation while I was married to "Groundwork". Groundwork was cool for the soccer mom, business meeting, run to the store look but for the "I woke up like this" look... Camel Coat is the way to go! I use it daily as a primer and it is super duper light!
It does wonders for the tone of my shadows!
I am a medium toned African American female with an orange undertone.
I highly recommend this to any and everyone!

The color is gorgeous and sparkly. Easy to apply and long-wearing. It's just too easy to swipe this on my lid, put on some mascara, and feel instantly put together. Makes the morning a breeze!

Goes on horribly
SHADE NAMELet’s Skate
The color is so pretty that it's a shame it doesn't work for me. It stripped away the concealer I had on my eyelids and left weird spots all over them like it mixed with the concealer and just clumped together. I figured it was because I used my finger so I tried a brush and it was even worse. It creased and streaked on my eyelids and looked pretty awful. Maybe I'm not using it right but I'm really considering returning it.

This is an incredibly soft and easy to work with product. I have incredibly hooded eyes and this product keeps my eyes from creasing or my shadows from moving. I would recommend this to everyone. I went with a color more true to my skin on this but if you have overly oily skin I would not recommend you use a lot of this given its incredibly creamy texture.

I am soooooo happy I found this stuff....thanks to Heather B on YouTube LOL! It is amazing!!! I use it as a base under my eye makeup and it keeps my eye shadow and eyeliner from sliding off my eyelids all day long. It doesn't take much to cover your lids so I'm sure it will last me a while. You gotta try it, promise you'll fall in love.

Sets in seconds and stays put until you remove it! Lasts hours and hours... you can literally swipe your finger across your lids and NOTHING comes off or budges. I have several of these paint pots, and find myself no longer using powder shadows. Amazing!

Painterly Paint Pot
SHADE NAMEPainterly
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
This is my second time to order Painterly Paint Pot. I like that it creates a perfect base for other shadow's. It's a little to light for me to wear it by itself. It does hold my shadow all day and it doesn't crease.
The first time I bought it, it was in the store. Now I order online knowing I like the shadow and the color painterly.
I would love to try other paint pots, I will have to try it in the store for the right color, its difficult to get the true color from a pic online.
The paint pot also last a very long time. I apply it with a brush or my finger, it blends in nicely.
I think people should experiment with the paint pot shadows, I'm sure they will like them a lot.

I love everything about Pro Longwear Paint Pots:

* The cream formula improves the appearance of eyelids.

I would recommend this product to everyone that wears makeup.

Painterly paint pot
SHADE NAMEPainterly
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing, water resistant, Crease resistant
First off, I have discoloration around my eyes and have been searching for something that would help. After spending the last three years, going through all sorts of eye primers and thinking I just have oily skin which is why I have such a hard time finding a primer that will not crease(after 4-6 hours of wear).
I decided to walk into MAC for the first time and I was not looking for primer, I took a sample home and tested the paint pot out later that day. Its everything I have been looking for and is not but $4 more than my urban decay primer. I was sold instantly!
Crease resistant and once on will not come or rub off!
water resistant and sweat proof- I tested it out at work and I work in security. I even went to the beach and my make up lasted through whitewater rafting trip.
Word of warning... 30 seconds to dry when applied and you need to work fast. This is like cement once applied.

At last!
SHADE NAMEPainterly
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
From this point on, Painterly is a key part of my daily eye makeup. This shade gives me a neutral canvas on the lid on which to create different looks with MAC's wonderful array of powder shadows. It does not crease nor look chalky. For those of us over 60 with crepey eyelids, that's a real plus. Best of all, by the end of my work day, my eye makeup looks just as good as when first applied.

I love the shade "Painterly" as a base for my lids. It blends so easily into my skin. Its creamy and long wearing. Makes for a great base. Soft Ochre is great too but too yellow based for me.

Great base for eyeshadow and sticks to the lid!
SHADE NAMESoft Ochre
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing, matte
Soft Ochre is great for neutral or yellow undertone skin because I feel that Painterly looks too beige or gray for my liking. It applies smoothly and makes a nice canvas for eye shadows and liner. I use this everyday but make sure to moisturize your eye area because It is matte. I have applied this without moisturizing beforehand and I took it off because it made my lids look too dry and gross. other than that, a great product that I intend on repurchasing when I run out.

Smooth, natural and longlasting
SHADE NAMEPainterly
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
Painterly is one of the best products out there to use as eye shadow base. Its very smooth, even on my N1 skin looks quite natural. Easy to apply, does not crease, makes eye shadows go on smoother and blend easier. The only issue I have with it (hence 4 stars) is that it does affect the color of the eye shadow a tiiny bit. Despite that, I love it and will be using as a base for all my neutral peach/brown/mauve shadows to make them stay on longer and go on smoother.
