MAC Groundwork Paint Pot Review

Greetings!

MAC paint pots are the best primers on the market right now in my opinion.  Not only can they be used as a primer but you can also use them as bases, cream eyeshadows, and concealer for those that are able to find a good match. I usually use use mine as primer and  cream eyeshadow.  How as an eyeshadow?  Simply apply the product on the lid of the eye, use a blending color in the crease, add a highlight to the brow bone, and you're good to go.  Simple, just how I like it.

Paint pots are intended to prime your eye canvas for eyeshadow application so that your eyeshadow does not crease throughout the day.  The greatest part of paint pots is their inability to move, once you blend that product it won't budge once you give it time to dry which a good thing, no one wants roof shingle like eyeshadow by the noon hour!

Here are a few pics to show you the goodness!






Groundwork paint pot was actually my first paint pot and since then I have acquired Soft Ochre which is now my fave.  I have a few others but I don't reach for them as much because......well, I don't know, LOL!  I will now though!  There is no scent and there is enough product in this little jar to last you a while, I've had this one for about two and a half years now.

Do you own any paint pots?  Do you like them?  If not, what's your favorite eye primer?

    I have 4 or 5, I think. But the maybelline color tattoos are a great, cheaper alternative. but my absolute fav are the MUFE aqua creams. Do you own any of those?

  4. I own two paint pots. MAC Groundwork and Quite Natural (darker than Groundwork). I love them both! AS they are very creamy, my ONLY and I mean ONLY problem is that they started drying out in the jar, so I lost some product, but otherwise I like them!

    A GREAT primer for glittery shadows (like Urban Decay) is Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue, that stuff is THE BOMB for glitter.
