Happy New Year guys! Now that I've been away for a while, I think that I'm going to try to do a post a week every week. Hopefully more, but that's kind of asking for a lot... Anyway, I'm starting this year with a review of one of my favorite products of all time.
MAC Paint Pots are definitely a cult favorite to a huge number of beauty gurus. I personally have to use them with Too Faced Shadow Insurance, otherwise they crease after a few hours. And they definitely need powder to set them, otherwise they crease rather quickly.
This Paint Pot, on the other hand, I don't use as an eyeshadow base; I use it as an under eye concealer. The yellow tones in it cancel out the purple-blue tone of my under eye circles. The color is also a little lighter than my skin tone, which brightens too. The consistency is very creamy, and since this is usually used as a primer, it doesn't crease either when I use powder to set (which is always).
This product is perfect for my skin tone, or for one a little lighter. I really can't recommend it enough. I've been using it for the past year and a half almost every single day and has lasted amazingly. I love it, and it's really been worth the rather hefty price tag ($18.50). Comes down to about 3 cents a day. All and all, I totally recommend this to people with a medium to light skin tone as both an eye primer and an under eye circle concealer.
What products do you use in a different way than they are intended?
