Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the MAC Paint Pot in the shade Rubenesque.
A couple of weeks ago Julia and I went shopping and MAC was having 40% off some products, including this and a few other things I’m going to review in the following weeks.
I’ve shared this story on twitter but I want to tell you here. When I was 15 I wanted this paint pot so badly because my favourite youtuber at the time used to use it but money was a bit tight back then and I couldn’t afford it. So when I saw it in the sale I thought I could make my 15-years-old self happy and finally get it. I know it’s not a new product but I hope you’ll like the review.
You can get it here for 22$.
The shade I have is a peach with gold shimmer.
The packaging is a classic MAC pot which is made out of glass. The shade name is on the back.
It’s cute and easy to carry around. I really like it.
FORMULA & APPLICATION
The formula is very creamy. The colour is metallic and it’s not patchy at all.
It’s is quite sheer but I like the effect, makes it perfect for everyday wear.
It’s easy to apply and blend with a finger. You have time to move it around but once it sets, you won’t be able to move it.
I like that you can use it alone as well as a base for other eyeshadows.
I always have to wear an eye primer or my make up won’t last a minute. Even with cream shadows but I feel like most people would want to use it without.
- WITHOUT Primer: This shadow lasted for 6 hours on me before starting to crease. I have extremely oily lids so I was quite impressed.
- WITH Primer: This shadow with a primer lasted about 12 hours.
I’ve also tried to use it as a base for powder eyeshadow and it lasted 6 hours on me.
- Colour: 10/10
- Longevity: 7/10
- Application: 9/10
- Texture: 9/10
- Pigmentation: 8/10
- Packaging: 9/10
This eyeshadow is so pretty. It’s insanely easy to use, very pretty and long-lasting. I like that I can use it alone or as a base. It’s perfect from day to night. If you are looking for something quick to use daily you’ll love it. I’m so happy to have it in my collection, finally.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
