In my opinion, the new paint pots from M.A.C Cosmetics are one of the best new items out this year.
From the Painterly Collection, these beautifully functional shades also provide long lasting crease free wear. The paint pots are basically a form of cream eyeshadow, but they are a bit thicker and they dry to a matte finish quite quickly.
The shimmery shades are not too shimmery and the colors are very user friendly. There are some beautiful neutral shades, along with some brighter, but still subdued and versatile colors.
One word of warning. You will want to dedicate a brush or two to these. They do stick on the brush quite a bit and I found that I had better luck actually using a concealer brush to apply the shadow instead of a softer brush. Also, the shadows go to a set matte finish quite quickly, so blend fast! Once set, they do not blend as well.
If you are in the market for cream eyeshadow, or want something that will comfortably and beautifully last and last, check these out. These are new in stores now and are intended to become part of M.A.C’s permanent collection, which is a good thing because I love them!
