Hi Everyone! ♥
I had pretty much written this whole post up and added the pictures when blogger decided to delete my draft?! I've no idea what happened so that's why this is even more overdue as I had to find time to sit down and type it all up again! So annoying. Anyway, today I have a Mac paint pot review for you all which I'm really excited for as it's something I've wanted for a really long time!
I went into the MAC Soho store a couple weeks ago not really planning on getting anything but I ended up walking away with Let's Skate paint pot which is a re promote from the Glitter and Ice 2011 Christmas collection but was bought out again earlier this year in the permanent pro long wear paint pot collection so I was so happy as I've wanted this for about a year.
If your unsure of what a paint pot actually is, it's a creamy eyeshadow which you can use as a primer or base for other eyeshadows or you can use it alone for a wash of colour. They come in a screw top glass jar and you must make sure to keep the lid on tight so they don't dry out! I like to keep mine upside down to keep the moisture at the top if that makes sense! Personally, I like to use these as a sheer wash of colour to perk my eyes up and give a little bit of colour.
There are a variety of different finishes but Let's Skate is a pearl. Let's Skate is a light pink and even though it's hard to pick up in pictures (and doesn't show at all in mine) has lot's of gold shimmer in it. When swatched the shimmer is very noticeable and is borderline glitter which I know some people don't like but when an eyeshadow is layered on top it's a very subtle shimmer. My only complaint with this particular shade is that is does apply slightly patchy but to fix this I like to apply it with a small shader brush which helps.
Overall, I really like these however I do feel they are overpriced however I've heard they do last a long time. If you are after a similar cream eyeshadow product the Maybelline color tattoo's are the way to go. I haven't actually tried these but I really want to get some, I like the look of Pink Gold, Bad to the bronze and the plum one which I've forgotten the name of!
