Have you heard about the Pro Longwear Paint Pots from MAC already? No??!! Then listen up!
I have to say it up front – I absolutely love them!! Okay, and now I tell you why. You don't need an eye shadow base to keep them in place and even without they won't magically disappear from your eye lid and somehow reappear in the crease of your eye. You can apply them with your fingertips for a rougher look or with a cream shadow brush for a neater one. In my experience using a brush creates an intenser look and the result is even more long lasting. I always apply one coat on each eye and then add another one and maybe another one. Depends on the look you aim for.
You can also mix and match the colours like I did in this post. I first applied two coats of "Vintage Selection" and then highlighted the outer corner of my eye lids with "Antique Diamond".
They retail in Germany around 23,50 € and really last a long time.
PS: Feel free to mix and match them with different kinds of eye shadows and liners. Go crazy ;)
A big thank you to MAC Cosmetics Germany for sending me those amazing Paint Pots!!
