Holy grail - 12-12-2018 by

One of the first few MAC products I ever purchased and have gone through what feels like a million since. Doesn't crease, lasts all day and in particular the 'soft ochre' shade is the best multipurpose base as it cancels out any veins that are apparent on my lids, it keeps my eyeshadow in place and NikitaJoy on YT shared a tip that I've implemented where you put a little bit on your nose (or in trouble areas) to keep foundation from shifting...groundbreaking! Love this stuff.

Best Base - 10-12-2018 by

The Paint Pots make fantastic eye shadow bases, it evens out skin tone and provides great grip for my eyeshadows. Love how creamy and easily applied the formula is and it feels very comfortable on the skin, absolutely the holy grail product I reach for when I want my look to stand out and stick around without touchups. The pots last for some time as it is a good amount of product and a little goes a long way. As a tip it goes great under glasses if you can find one that matches your skin tone

Amazing - 06-12-2018 by

Makes your eyeshadow look amazing

Conceal everything! - 28-11-2018 by

I love this product and use it to conceal everything! It hides the dark circles under my eyes, any redness or even larger spots and acne! It is very pigmented and using too much can leave a drying effect, so don’t over do it!

Best opaque eyeshadow base I've ever used - 27-11-2018 by

I've got heavily pigmented lids so I've been searching for a good eyeshadow base to lighten and even out the skin tone so that eyeshadows show true to colour. This is the best one I've ever found. Unlike others, it covers really well and doesn't dry out my skin. I mix Soft Ochre with a little orange corrector to avoid ashiness and apply it with a concealer brush. I actually use it on my eyelids and under my eyes as a base for concealer; it really helps to avoid creasing and provides long lasting coverage. It's fantastic. As an eyeshadow base, definitely set/cover with translucent or skin-tone powder as it can be tacky and make eyeshadows difficult to blend used alone. I haven't tried the other shades but I'd like to try some of the shimmery ones as a basic eyeshadow. Definitely worth a try - I recommend it to everyone.

Staple product - 25-11-2018 by

Soft Ochre is the perfect shade to prime my eyelids for eyeshadow. My eyelids are naturally quite dark with visible capillaries, this product primes and gives my eyelids a bright and open look, this really helps to create soft looks with as it helps light shadows show up.

Perfect - 23-11-2018 by

Great for an eyeshadow base, definitely will be repurchasing

Yes please - 23-11-2018 by

Wow is this nice. I love this texture and how it feels on my lids.

The eyeshadow/primer I use every single day - 19-11-2018 by

Paint Pots are the workhorses of the eyeshadow world for sure. I've been using these since I was recommended one as an eyeshadow primer way back in high school, for my formal makeup. Painterly is a great shade for priming pale warm skin, and can even work as a concealer in a pinch (for oily skin), because it just sets and stays on. Pigment payoff over the top of it is fantastic. Groundwork is an amazing shade for every day wear, and I do actually wear it every single day. It just provides enough structure and sculpting while looking completely natural. My only criticism is lack of shade diversity - they discontinued a favourite of mine, Tailor Gray, a cool taupe colour, and I feel that there aren't enough darker colours for deep skin tones, which is surprising coming from MAC because they are usually great with that.

Great base coat - 15-11-2018 by

I don't often wear eyeshadow, however now that I have a few pots, I use them all the time. All they require is a finger, a smudge and you're done. The nude is a great to use as an every day bit of shine or as a base coat to make your eyeshadow last a bit longer and not end up smudged into the crease of your eye.

easy and convenient - 09-11-2018 by

so easy to use, and looks natural on the eyes. really good option for work as it's quick to apply and looks natural, but gives a nice touch

Good product - 31-10-2018 by

I have Antique Gold (?) and Painterly. I use this as single colour to wash over my eyelids when I'm a bit time-poor in the morning. They're lovely colours.

Cream base - 30-10-2018 by

I have this in Bare Study, it's a very neutral base for my eyeshadow. It is a little shimmery so I sometimes use it alone on natural makeup days.
It applies smoothly and sets quickly.
It stays put all day and doesn't crease or fade.
It neutralises the skin tone on my eyelids but I don't notice much difference in my eyeshadow colour. And it doesn't change the longevity of my eyeshadow either.
The pot is a little annoying, I use an eyeshadow brush to apply. When I use my finger it seems to take off the product and it becomes patchy.
This is just an ok product, I have used better eyeshadow primers and cream shadows.

Amazing - 18-10-2018 by

Really helps to keep my shadow game intact!

The only flaw is the packaging - 16-10-2018 by

Products like this give me some appreciation for why there are so many MAC junkies out there, but it also highlights what I dislike about MAC. From a pro standpoint these paint pots do produce amazing end results but flaw is in the 'end user,' style packaging. I mean if MAC made a little cream shadow palette with all of these shades I would buy it in an instant, and never be without it, but having five little jars clattering around in my makeup kit is a headache I don't need.

One or two as a shadow base works nicely. I will always have them. They prime eyes better than most dedicated primers and do not crease. The texture is so creamy and easy to work with, and it gives a really nice primed lid for shadow application, or can stand in for shadow by itself if you use a darker colour to contour.

When I do smokey eyes with my airbrush I use this as the base.

Painterly!!!! - 15-10-2018 by

Love this eyeshadow primer, yes it is quite dry but it stays creasless all day!! I usually use a wet eyeshadow primer (too faced or urban decay) then I put this on top to create ultimate staying power. I’m still on my first jar & i have it for years. True value for product, LOVE IT!

Soft ochre - 12-10-2018 by

Soft ochre is the best eye lid primer ever. Nothing beats it and this little pot lasts for years!

Amazing - 10-10-2018 by

Really great for hiding veins on the lid, does a perfect job at keeping the shadow secured and really great for an under-base for makeup not fading and breaking apart on the nose.

Base camp - 10-10-2018 by

A great base for eyeshadow, I am a light-medium with a pink undertone and wear C2 face and body NC25 in most other mac foundations. I am quite fair on top on my eyes and have prominent blue veins that are visible on my eye lids, Painterly really helps to neutralise that and give me a blank canvas to start on.

over-rated - 05-10-2018 by

over representation of soft-ochre and painterly on the inter-webs so decided to give it a try in a more tan shade. I was honestly disappointed in this as an eyeshadow base......just i would 1006700% choose my concealers over this. So dry on my eye lids, so it's like a huge tug of war with my brush as i blend it on as a base. Just no

Very good - 04-10-2018 by

My eyelids are quite dark with visible capillaries from using eyelash growth serum. I’m a NC15 in MAC foundation and soft ocher is perfect to even out my eyelids. A little goes a long way, the products blends out beautifully.

Base, Primer & Eyeshadow - 03-10-2018 by

These wear so long, are creaseless and waterproof. I mainly use them underneath eyeshadow (especially Painterly and Soft Ochre) but they are just as beautiful used alone as an easily blendable shade on the lid.

Love this!! - 02-10-2018 by

MAC Paint Pots in Painterly & Perky - I have very oily eyelids most of the year, so I use paint pots instead of traditional shadow primer. Using these, I don't have any slip to my eyeshadow. All eyeshadows stick to them very well. They also make my eyeshadow pop more than a traditional neutral eye primer would.

Love - 01-10-2018 by

I've used paint pots for years and I love that Adore is stocking Mac now ;) I use Groundwork for a natural taupe look and soft ochre for a base for other shadows. I love the yellowish tone.

Great product - 26-09-2018 by

Obviously amazing to use as a eye shadow primer - amazing base! Wouldn't call a necessity as can use a concealer to prep the eyes but this works so well if you want to use something different to prep the lids

Love! - 25-09-2018 by

Love these as an easy way to add a hint of colour to eye lids. The product is easy to apply, build-able and in a great range of colours. I wear mine all day and it doesnt budge or crease. Very affordable given the product lasts such a long time.

best lid primer - 25-09-2018 by

I have asian skin with yellow undertones and use soft ochre under my eyeshadow to make it pop and last all day, applies smoothly and is super creamy and blendable but not patchy

The only eye primer to use! - 24-09-2018 by

I have an olive complexion and have Soft Ochre in this product and it is amazing! Makes your eyeshadow last all day and night. The perfect base for your shadow.

Love it - 24-09-2018 by

Essential eye primer!!! This is raved about and I love using it too, perfect for under any eyeshadow or even on its own.

Hands down the best! - 21-09-2018 by

Best eyeshadow primer on the market

Best eyeshadow primer - 20-09-2018 by

Love this in shade 'soft ochre' and 'painterly' as I have fair-light skin normally but can use these when I'm fake tanned also. Creates a perfect base for shadow and makes them wear so much longer. Highly recommend!

Best Eye Primer - 19-09-2018 by

One of the best eye primers ever!

A star product - 19-09-2018 by

This product really is one of the stand outs from MAC. The Paint Pots are very pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to blend, and are the best eye shadow based of all time. I also sometimes use this on my top lip and nose (patted on with a finger) before applying foundation to help it stick all day as I live in a humid climate. It makes a big difference. Such a great multi use product. I use soft ocre

Great eyeshadow base - 19-09-2018 by

One of the best eyeshadow bases out! More on the expensive side but soft ochre & painterly are awesome! They cancel out the veins in your eyelids and provide such a good base to blend eyeshadow out!

The only eye base i'll use - 14-09-2018 by

Soft Ocre is perfect when I'm doing a glam look and want a completely blank eye base for eyeshadow colours to pop, whilst I love painterly for everyday wear on its own. It evens out my eyelids and gets rid of any veins etc, whilst also giving me a nice soft wash of pinky-beige.

BEST MAC product! - 10-09-2018 by

Unbelievably underrated. This is my favourite MAC product of all time. I can’t replace this in my routine, and I’ve tried - believe me, I’ve wasted money trying every copycat product on the market and nothing is this good.

Paint Pots are densely pigmented, easy to blend out, comfortable to wear. If you have oily eyelids like me, this will completely change your eyeshadow game - this is the perfect eyeshadow primer! No joke my eyeshadow looks the same as when I applied, 12 hours later.

Sometimes I use these by themselves, and sometimes I use them underneath powders. No need for any additional eyeshadow primer. I don’t like that they’re in a pot, but that’s my only quibble.

I use Painterly but in the past I’ve also used Camel Coat, Rubenesque and Indianwood. They’re all pretty great depending on what kind of look you prefer and what your skin tone is, so choose whichever takes your fancy - there’s no difference in performance between colours.
