I'm always in the market for buying a cream eyeshadow. They're easy to use, quick to apply and providing you have a good cream shadow, wont budge. MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots are one of my favourite cream shadows. You can use them as a primer, base or as a wash of colour on their own. MAC were really lacking in a good shade range until a while back when they introduced a few new and repromoted shades into the permanent line. One of those was Vintage Selection - a frosted champagne beige (MAC describe this as a dirty peach but I disagree, although the one karen from makeup and beauty blog has looks completely different so who knows?!! ) that originally launched in the cham-pale collection a few years ago. It looks a little 'sparkly' on the lids but worn on its own its ok for wearing during the day.
Vintage Selection is extremely pigmented, has a soft and creamy texture and applies smoothly. I have oily lids and paints pots don't budge until I remove them. One thing about MAC paint pots is that they dry really quickly so if you're blending/wearing with other shades, you need to work fast! I've also found that they can dry out over time if you don't screw the lid on tight enough. (quick tip - give them a blast with a hairdryer if they start to dry, it warms them up making them creamier.)
Nevertheless, paint pots in general are a great buy!They're not what I class as cheap and I'm pretty sure the price of these has increased recently but they're ideal for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to apply makeup, especially in the mornings when everything is a chore! Vintage selection is beautiful shade, I have lets skate, stormy pink, camel coat, perky pro and antique diamond currently on my wishlist. Some of those haven't launched yet but there are more shades about to be added to the permanent line so keep your eyes peeled!
Have you tried any MAC paint pots?
