M.A.C Pro Longwear paintpot review and swatches

 These slightly dense shadows can be worn alone or as a base for loose pigments or eyeshadows. M.A.C paintpots are packed in a see-through glass jar that keeps them fresh and creamy. Believe me I hated cream shadows several years ago but sometimes cream is so incredibly mess and hassle free that it’s worth having them around for quick makeup looks.

The paintpot has a nice longevity. I got around six to eight hours of wear out of the formula alone or as a base for another eyeshadow. The two shades I tried out all had a solid seven hour wear without showing any creasing.
The two shades I got to test out are Groundwork & Indian wood.

Groundwork is a matte dirty and soft chocolate brown with yellow undertones (cream). Its seems like a dark nude shade that suits darker skintones. If I was 2-3 shades darker it will be an easy nude base for my eyeshadow, but this shade is almost a mid-tone to me. It is not as soft as Indianwood, yet easily blended with a brush, or warm fingers.

Indianwood is very soft neutral taupe with golden shimmer particles in it (satin)

Paintpots are creamy without being too thin or too thick. They also dry fast so it settles into your skin immediately, giving a powder finish, but it has just enough to be blendable along the edges. The color payoff is top notch with full color coverage. If you really want subtler color, apply very little and blend with a fluffy brush or fingertip (which tends to be better, as the warmth of your finger keeps the product more movable).
