mac paint pot in indianwood and constructivist: review + swatches

Today we're reviewing the MAC Paint points in Indianwood and Constructivist. Both these Paint Pots are part of MAC's permanent range so available all year round. 

The Claims
A highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. The next generation of a popular MAC formula, Paint Pots maintains all the intense traits of its inspiration. Long. wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with MAC shadows and liners. Available in satin, cream, frost and pearl formulas. 

The Reality
We love the MAC Paint Pots. They are versatile in that they can be used as an eye shadow base or even on there own swept over the eyelids for a quick and simple look.

The Indianwood Paint Pot is a lovely metallic golden-bronzy colour. The Constructivist Paint Pot  is a warm brown shade with a slight shimmer. Both these colours work well for warm, medium to dark skin tones. However in total there are nine shades in the permanent Paint Pot range, so there are plenty of options to choose from and something that will suit every skin tone and eye colour.

Both Paint Pots have great colour pay off and apply onto the eyelid easily either with a flat shader brush or with your fingers. They are easy to work with and blend nicely, although you do need to be relatively quick as they do dry fast.

The colours last all day without fading or creasing on our eyelids. However if you have oily eyelids then creasing could be a problem for you and you may want to consider a primer underneath.

A little goes a long way and the small tub lasts a long time! As the Paint Pot is a cream product it will dry out so it can work out expensive if it's not a product your going to use often.

The Packaging
The product comes packaged in cute little glass tub with a black plastic lid.

The Price 
MAC Cosmetics: £14.50/5g

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4.5/5

Have you tried any of the MAC Paint Pots? What are your thoughts?
