MAC Paint Pot Series: Simply Pink

Playing around with MAC Paint Pots is my latest beauty pastime. My love with them started with the paint tubes but I find the pots much more convenient. I'll be posting a series of looks I created with a whole slew of the different paint pots I've bought recently.

Ignore the hideous spots on my forehead, I just couldn't work up enough energy to cover them up that day! On the other hand, I never realized what long lashes I have until I started taking photos for this blog.

The star: Girl-Friendly Paint Pot
I was weary of this shade even though I've read some rave reviews on other blogs and websites. It just didn't seem that special to me. Once I tried it on though, I just had to have it. It goes beyond just being a fantastic base shade for most eye combinations. I even like wearing this eyeshadow alone; it's a great upgrade on a nude eye.

i should try more the paint pot series. Stila pots are also great:) by the way, how do you apply the paintpots? do you use your fingers?

Hi Nywele,

I use a stiff brush to apply it. Using your fingers is not a good way to do it because it smears everywhere.

I am such a BIG fan of paint pots. The consistency and texture are a dream, and it's hands down one of the best bases i've ever used. Even without applying UDPP, my eye color stayed vibrant and durable all day long.

I love them paint pots as well. Have you tried similar products from L'oreal? Do you know if they compare?

Thanks for your help!
