MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots: Camel Coat, Bare Study & Painterly on http://emandhanxo.blogspot.co.uk/


I got a few of these MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots awhile back now and have been obsessed with these ever since. I currently own three pots but know that I definitely want to expand my collection in the future basically when I have more pennies. So today I thought I would share with you guys the three shades that I do own which are camel coat, bare study and painterly. 

The paint pots are great base products for eyeshadow or alternatively can be worn on their own when you are in one of them moods not to bother with eye makeup much. They are creamy in application and I apply using my a makeup brush normally but they still give a nice even finish if you apply with your finger too. Once they have been applied they give you eyelid a nice smooth base to add further eyeshadows and help them last longer on the lid.

So moving onto the shades. The first one I own is Camel Coat. This is a lovely muted taupe/beige with a slight grey look to it. I really like to use this shade when i'm doing eye makeup for a night out as it does help hold the eye look for the whole night. Although this shade is also great worn alone on in the day too.

 Next up is bare study which is a gorgeous soft beige cream shade with gold shimmer giving a nice frost finish. I think this pot is a really pretty shade but I don't get as much wear out of it as I would like. When you apply this it does go on quite sheer but it can be built up like seen in the photos. I personally like to use this pot when I want to highlighter my inner corners and under my brow. Not really as an everyday shade though like the others.

Last up is painterly and this is my current most reached paint pot as you can probably tell from the photo. This shade is nice matte nude which I find has a pinky tone to it on my lids. I have really liked using this on its own recently for everyday wear as I'm really lazy when it comes to doing eye makeup and want to avoid the reddish lid I have naturally. 

Overall all of these provide really good pigmentation and provide a smooth canvas for eyeshadows to go on top just like an eyelid primer. The only disadvantage I would say about these is the cost £15.50 each, which is definitely not budget friendly. Saying that I would definitely recommend if you can afford these. However if you are after a cheaper option I would consider looking out for the maybelline colour tattoos. 

So what do you guys think? Worth the money or know any alternatives?

see you soon, han x
