MAC Paint Pots - Reviewed!

I've been slowly collecting MAC Paint Pots for a while now because they are my favourite eye shadow base products, I now I have ever shade I think I want so I thought it was time to confess my love about them in a review.
I really like the packaging of the Paint Pots, simple glass jars with a black lid. Although when standing up it is hard to tell which shade is which, I store all my cream shadows upside down so that they don't dry out and it also means I can see each shade colour.
The texture of them are just the right amount of creamy base without out being too creamy or too dry. I have both matte and shimmery shades and each apply easily onto the eyes. I normally apply them with my ring finger but also apply well with a blending brush.
The first shade I got was Bare Study which is the perfect champagne bases for eyeshadow and makes them appear more pigmented on the eyes. My next shade was Painterly which is a pink toned skintone colour which is perfect for using as a base to any eyeshadows and cancels out any redness or discolouration on the eye. The next shade I got was Rubenesque which is another shimmery base, this one is a orange toned bronzey colour which has a pink tone to it as well. This one is my least you out of the lot but it is a great base for a bronzey smokey eye. Finally my latest addition is Groundwork, which is a mostly matte toned brown which has a sheen to it which looks beautiful on it's own or paired with another shadow. I love wearing it with MAC Soba eyeshadow.
L-R Groundwork, Rubenesque, Bare Study and Painterly.
I find these last around 8 hours on my without creasing, they make my eyeshadows looks a lot more vibrant and also look just as good alone. These are definitely still my favourite cream shadows even with brand like Maybelline bring out cheaper alternatives.

MAC Paint Pots retail for £14.50.

Have you tried any Paint Pots?
