Review for: Soft Ochre, Painterly more...
These are an ABSOLUTE MUST!!!! I cannot do my makeup without one of these to set as a base for my eyeshadow.  They keep shadow in place while giving it a good foundation to work off of.  The texture is creamy and soft.  It speeds easily with just my fingertip.  I notice extended wear with my shadow when I use this.  On multiple occasions for just quick errands, I have used these colors alone, with no shadow to make my eyes look less dark and sunken.  I love the fact that they have so many choices to work with whatever color palette or eyeshadow you plan to use.  Its like they amplify the color and make it better, since they match or help amp up the colors you are going to use.  I have ditched all other eyeshadow primers and potions and ONLY use these.  And did I mention they last a REALLY REALLY long time?   Just a little bit goes a very long way.  The price tag is right for the amount of use you get out of one pot.  Please give these a shot if you haven't.  EXCELLENT and deserves for stars!!!

Review for: Soft Ochre, Painterly more...
This is my ABSOLUTE FAVE to use when priming my lids for eyeshadow.. I have EXTREMELY oily eyelids where if I forget to use this, I’ll look like a total raccoon mid day! I’ve been using this for over 10 years and have yet to find something just as good. It keeps my shadows and eyeliner put all day long and really helps enhance the color!
A little tip, just make sure to close the lid tightly after use, otherwise it will dry out. My favorite colors to use are painterly or soft ocher. I also use the gold one on special occasions.
I’m sure for dryer skin people, this could work great by it self but if you’re oily like me be sure to set it w some eyeshadow. One pot really lasts a long time and I don’t go one single day w/o using it!

This is one of my Holy grail products, I always use this every time I do my makeup ! It’s a great primer and an amazing base. It’s the best way to start with a blank canvas on my lids, it cleans everything up ! It’s also great to help with cleaning under my brows with ! If you have really oily skin you can also apply it as a base before foundation in areas that usually rub off like the nose or other areas ! MAC 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!!

I would venture to say that the soft ochre paint pot is by far my holy grail product for priming. I have medium-tan skin, but it still goes on great. It is smooth and very easy to work well pigmented eyeshadows over top of the product. It is also great for cutting your crease to create a more dramatic look using layered eye colors. I typically apply with a dense brush, sometimes a concealer brush is best. It can be applied with a finger, but doesn’t achieve as accurate of a result.

Review for: Soft Ochre more...
Hands down one of the best products for eye primer.This product was everywhere on youtube back in the day I had always wanted to see what the big hype was so I tried it. I love the formula it's creamy and long wearing. My shadows will not crease or budge when I use this. The only thing I dislike is the packaging: I wish it came in a tube. It comes in a small glass pot with a screw top lid. I use a small angled makeup brush to apply this the angled brush helps to get the product into the corners. The color Soft Ochre reminds of  NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in custard which is what I used to use as a lid primer but it was crease city!

I get the best results when I apply soft ochre wait a minute and then set it using a  MAC 159 Duo Fiber Blush Brush with either  Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder  or .

Review for: Painterly more...
As soneone who’s obsessed with YouTube beauty gurus, MAC paint pot in Painterly has been on my wishlist for years. I finally bit the bullet a few months ago and I’m so happy I did! Its truly as amazing as they say! It’s so creamy and pigmented, yet dries down without creasing and is long lasting. It makes for an awesome eyeshadow primer! My only complaint is I don’t like that it’s in a jar (I prefer tubes or pumps) though the packaging is very luxurious.

MAC. Pro Longwear Paint Pot is a highly pigmented. It was the first time I tried it. And it really does what it supposed to. It's a long-wearing eyeshadow that goes on creamy and dries to an intense, vibrant finish over lids. And creates seamless, buildable coverage without looking heavy or cakey. It is a big difference when I applied my eyeshadow without this product. Now that I have it I always use it and my eyeshadow last a longer time and I love the results. #MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot

Love love love! Painterly is the shade i use! It has a pink undertone (soft ochre would be for a yellow undertone) i put this all over my eyelid up until my brow bone, the product will last you forever no matter if you use it everyday! Personally i like it more than a clear primer because it covers my veins and will not crease a bit! Dries to a powder formula... They have other shades because you can use them as shadow not only like a base...

If I had to give up all my make up and keep this- I would. Its great as a highlighter, an eyeshadow, and I also use it to ombre my lipstick! The value is amazing, Im on month 10 of my Paint pot and I am in love with how long it lasts. You dont need much, it goes on smooth, lasts all day, I use it as a primer under eye shadow for my favorite look- Cut Crease! And I use it as primer under my highlight. Go buy this product!!! Right now!
