I love cream eyeshadows and cream blushes. So much. I’m not sure what it is, but they are infinitely more fun to use than their pressed powder counterparts- perhaps it’s because it’s like very expensive finger painting?
Either way, I adore my little collection of MAC Paint Pots and thought I would swatch them for you. I’m not going into too much detail here but if you want a full review, see my post on Blackground Paint Pot. All four have quite similar texture and performance. I love using them as an eyeshadow base to create depth and intensity, and to increase the wear time of eye shadows.
Price: 17 USD ( US rrp) 35 AUD (Australia RRP)
Availability: MAC counters worldwide.
 Jerry from Silhouette Screams blog has pointed out in the comments that Artifact Paint Pot is discontinued. It’s a sad day for eye shadows.
Quite Natural Paint Pot – Matte medium brown. It is my only completely matte shade out of the four, and has the best staying power of all of them (really nothing short of amazing).
Artifact Paint Pot- Plummy cranberry with a satin finish.
Constructivist Paint Pot- Dark bronzey brown with a satin finish.
Blackground Paint Pot- Dark grey first layer, becomes black with second. Satin finish. I’ve reviewed Blackground in detail here.
