I know, I know. I cannot stop talking about this product. There is not one fault that i can find with this product which is quite a novelty for me! It has so many great things about it, i don’t think i could ever live without it.
It is described by MAC as ‘A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M·A·C shadows and liners.’. So a cream eye shadow basically, but their is just so much you can do with it. I could use this bad boy morning, noon or night. How? You ask… well keep on reading!
As my very basic description entails, yes you can use it as a cream eyeshadow (shock!). Vintage Selection is a beautiful silver toned brown in the pot. It is a fairly solid product which totally blew any preconceived perceptions of this being a whipped product out the window. It almost has the balmy melting texture when you dip your finger in a swirl it around to pick up some colour. Which can be as much or as little as you like.
My favourite thing about Vintage Selection is how many different looks you can achieve.
On the left, i have simply used one light swipe to get the minimum colour pay off, but you are still left with a very flattering shimmer. On the right, i have built the colour to what is reflected in the pot (this took around 3-4 gentle swipes).
You can wear this product on its own in the office, and build it for dinner with the girls. If you want to go for a smokier eye, then PaintPots create the PERFECT base. It works essentially as a primer, making the eyeshadows you apply on top blend beautifully and last all night long. I also pop a little in my inner corners or buff it sparingly onto my cheekbones as a subtle highlight if i’m feeling sassy!
The cost of a PaintPot is £15 for 5g, which i think is more than reasonable for the quality and longevity of the product. (compared to the £20 i spent on a Bobbi Brown Longwear Cream Shadow stick which was £20 for 1.6g!!!!) So in conclusion, I love it. Big time.
