and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50

 

So c'mon now...confess!

Re: What are you wearing today?

fran----What are the MAC paint pots like? Do they crease? Are they primers or cream shadows? I love cream shadows (fave makeup product!!) but havent had the best experience with the MAC ones. I only have one mac cream shadow (big bounce, sizzlin diva) and it goes on cold/wet and hardens/creases seconds after applying.

Re: What are you wearing today?

They feel like a cross between the texture and feel of Stila's Smudge Pots but with the higher impact color pay off from Smashbox's Jet Set liners.

 

They make great cream shadows or liners.

 

Another comparable product would be the cream liner/shadows from Benefit, but those don't have the same color range as the paint pots.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks Lylysa!! The Benefit cream shadows are my favorite (I have 3!!) and I can never have enough cream or champagne colors. I've never tried the Stila Smudge Pots, I tried swatching them several times in store but the pots are always dried out.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I only have 1 paint pot and really like it a lot. To me, the paint pots are almost more heavy duty than a cream shadow, if that makes sense. I think the powdrr shadows I layer on top look so much better and wear so much longer than when I use other cream products. I know the paint pots are designed to be a primer and they do work well for a lot of people on their own. but my lids get very oily during the day and ANYTHING will crease if I dont use a good traditional primer first!  I recommend giving them a shot if you like cream bases. I plan on getting more colors soon!

 

OMG those big bounce shadows were terrible! I just tossed one the other day when I was reorganizing! I dont know what was worse, the texture or the way it looked! Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks fran!!! I think I might need to get some paint pots then!! I still have to buy the Estee Lauder cream shadows (they also came out with some new ones recently). Right now the bigger pots are their original cream shadows and the small pots are their new ones. I really want those! I like cream/champagne colors the best when it comes to cream shadow because I can use them everyday, with every look and I can use them lashline to brownbone, as primer/base, or as highlight on brownbone and inner corners of eyes.Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I have never tried the estee lauder cream shadows. I may have to give them a try. I used to stay away from all creams because they would crease on me. Now I am loving them since they work well with primers! Let me know how you make out with the paint pots if you do get some! :-)

Re: What are you wearing today?

fran---I actually went on mac's website and online chatted with one of the makeup artists about the paint pots...and she recommended painterly and bare study to me so I'll have to swatch those out next time I'm at MAC! So excited! I'm also debating on whether or not to get a 15 pan palette...its only 9 bucks and over time I could build up my mac collection. Sounds like fun.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Oh awesome!!! I didnt realize they had that feature on their site, pretty cool. The paint pot I have was a LE and I think the closest one they have in the perm line to it is painterly...slight pink undertone. I also reccommend the pallets. ..theyre only $9? I am pretty sure I paid more for mine but cant remember for sure! Its definitely a good investnent either wat. I actually want a second one :-)  their shadows are my favorite. Have fun swatching when you go!!! Ket me know what you decided on

:-)

Re: What are you wearing today?

fran---The 15 pan mac palette is $9, but thats for the empty palette. I think a filled up one is like $220. The online mac chat person send me the link, I hate mac's website, so complicated!

 

kimmi----lol when I first saw the post it wasnt under my post, it was the last message posted on the last page of the thread. Annoying new website!

Re: What are you wearing today?

fran----Sorry the mac 15 pan palettes are $16. I guess the link I got from the mac person was for one of the smaller palettes. Geez....now that I'm calculating the price of a filled up mac palette....I'm not so sure anymore. ($260.88 for a filled up 15 pan mac palette with 8.25% sales tax if you are buying the $15 shadows with the pan) ha! *freezes wallet*

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sephoramusthave - ohhh ok  $16 sounds more like it! I filled my pallette up over time so it hurt the wallet a lot less :-)  Plus they are the shadows I reach for the most and personally like best so it helps me to justify it to my conscience!! ;-)

Re: What are you wearing today?

@sephoramusthave-I love the paint pots I think I've used them so long I forgot to ever mention I did wear thoseSmiley Very Happy

Got really bored thanks to the snow and played with some palettes. This is Chocolate Bar (Candied Violet, white chocolate, and strawberry bon bon) and Tartes Mattenificent palette (the dark purple, one of the medium colors, black, and lightest color on the top left.)
