MAC Paint Pot - Soft Ochre Review

I have been using this for so long and I think I have gone through about 3 of them now. They do last a long time, I just use them so heavily and every single day. I never really used to use eyeshadow primers until I started using this product and then I was hooked on them!

I am obviously talking about the one and only MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. I first saw this when it was been raved about all over the internet. So, I jumped on the bandwagon and got one. It took me a while to start using it and even when I did it was only every now and again because I was just too lazy to grab it. I know that does sound horrifically lazy but when your rushing to get out of the door for college or university that minute you could spend applying this is precious.

I got this product because I was sick and tired of ruining my other eye primer. Before I had this I had the Urban Decay Eye Potion. I loved this for use on bridal make up that I was doing and to be honest I still do, I haven’t completely ditched it but MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot has taken over.

For light to medium skin tones this is a perfect base for eyeshadows. I tend to use this on them days when I haven’t had much sleep. When I am a little sleep deprived darkness really shows around my eyes even on my lids, I resemble a panda in many ways. But this hides all darkness and gives me a nice clean canvas for me to put my eyeshadow onto.

It makes eyeshadow stick and stay put all day long. Which is just what you are after if you are a bride and you need your make up to look flawless or even if you just working all day. Before when I have used cheaper eyeshadows which aren’t very high in pigment tend to fade by the end of the day, but this keeps them looking strong and bold.

However when I do apply this with my finger it has a greasy and oily texture to it. When it is on the eyelid I don’t notice that but I do on my hands. So now I just take it on my MAC 217 Brush to apply it. I can remember once I applied it on the inner part of my eye next to my nose because I am prone to getting dark there and it felt like I had put lard there it was foul!

I recommend this to everyone and the colour range that they have is incredible. I love the brown toned one for when I am doing for a darker eye look. There really is something for everyone. I will link down below to the paint pot in case you want to check them out…
