I love this product. I use this for my eyelids to prep them for shadow. I’ve seen reviews saying this creases.. It does when using a lot. If you use a little it doesn’t. A little goes a long way so it’ll last a while. Worth the money. Looks amazing. Easy to apply. I’d recommend and will be buying once I’m out.

I enjoy this product because it not only lasts me a long time to get plenty of uses out of it, super creamy and easy to blend, doesn’t crease on my own skin texture (combination) and the quality is worth the money! I love using this product for under my eyes, to prime my kids and also for under the brow to sharpen my lines! There are a few other shades to ensure there is a shade for you!

Review for: Painterly more...
I have used this product as a shadow base for about 8 years. I love the coverage of this, since I have discolored lids it evens them out. You don’t need a ton of product to use as a base. It helps my shadows show the true pigments while giving it excellent wear. The color is neutral so you can also use it as color alone.  M.A.C Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot

Review for: Soft Ochre more...
This is the only eyeshadow base/primer I use and believe in. I have extremely oily eyelids and have tried eye primers from multiple brands such as the famous Urban Decay primer potion and the Too faced and benefit primers and none of those prevented my eyelids from getting oily so I always need with my eyeshadow and liner smudged until I tried this! Soft Ochre goes with my skin tone perfectly and I can even use it as a spot concealer/highlighter since it is creaseless it lasts all day and a little pot will last you so long since you need the tiniest amount!!

The ABSOLUTE BEST eye primers! Personally for me, I love the painterly paint pot, but litterly all of them are truley amazing. They are just the best eyeshadow primers. I simply cannot express it enough in any amount of words. I just don't think words do the justice for the greatness of this product. They make any, and I mean any eyeshadow's blend like a dream! They blend like literal butter, and just to absolute PERFECTION!

Review for: Soft Ochre more...
This is my favorite eyelid primer. It goes on so thickly, so richly, and so creamily and it offers 100% full coverage to help hide any natural shadows on the eye.

I apply it with a MAC 242S brush when I don’t use my fingers and either way I find that it is a smooth and easy application and that it blends in and settles really well above the eye.

With this primer I find my shadows are much truer to palette and their pigments really shine through in an even, blendable way that I can be confident will last all day.

This is my absolute go-to eyelid primer.

Review for: Painterly more...
I have been using this product since I was in middle school. It is an all time favorite for me! I use the color painterly and it’s a very neutral color, but they come in all different colors. I use it to prime my eyes before putting on eyeshadow and it makes the eyeshadow application so much better. It leaves my lids even and doesn’t have any sort of uneven application or uneven coloring like some thick eyeshadow primers I have used. I also use it to cover my smile lines before I put foundation on. I use a packer brush and put it over my smile lines and then set it with setting powder and it looks like they were never there! I have awful awful smile lines so this is a holy grail for me!

Review for: Soft Ochre, Painterly more...
These paint pots SET THE STANDARD for eyelid primers. This is exactly how a primer should be. Easy to apply... long lasting (not to mention a little product goes a long long way...you’ll never run out) ... the color is a perfect neutral matte (matching most skin colors) and it won’t break the bank! Just a fantastic product all around!!!

I rotate the pro longwear paint pots in the shades painterly and soft ochre as my eye primer. I have never found anything that keeps my eyes set like this formula. Easy to apply. Cost effective, doesn't run out on me super quickly. I would recommend these to anyone who has trouble getting their eyeshadow to stay out throughout the day.
